Social media is an emerging field that connects users from around the world. Facebook has one of the largest networks, followed by Twitter and Instagram. Some newly popular social networks include the video sharing network, Vine and the image sharing network, Pinterest. As a blogger you should have a presence on social media. However, you do not need to be on every one of these networks. Focus your time on creating great content for one or two, versus putting the same old content on all of them. If you’re planning to start a blog, Facebook and Twitter are the best place to start sharing posts with your followers.


Did you think you can hide behind your computer as a blogger? Sorry! In today’s world bloggers need to be social butterflies! Share your followers content, comment, and interact with them. There’s a reason it’s called “social” media.


Vine, Periscope, and Snapchat are newer networks that are growing rapidly. The newest platforms tend to be mobile based and rightfully so – mobile internet usage has overtaken desktop usage. Between these newer platforms, YouTube, and Facebook Live there has also been a shift to video blogging, or as it is commonly known “vlogging“.

Facebook may be one of the “older” platforms but it has the most users out of any.

Facebook Live is a new platform that allows Facebook users to live stream. It seems to be a response to Periscope. However, it’s a little creepy… now Facebook is always watching you!
