If you're a writer, what social media do you use? The chances are that, beside your website, you also have a blog, maybe a Facebook page and possibly use Twitter. How do you find time to juggle the social networking with everything else and still find time to write? Is it essential for a writer to have an interactive online presence? Which is your favourite and why?
I've recently set up a new Facebook Like page. I love chatting with readers online and hope this could be a way of connecting. I also have a Twitter account but to be honest I'm not too sure what I'm doing over there, which is why I often appear to fall of the edge of the twitterverse.
What medium do readers most like as a way of connecting to authors? Is it important to have that interaction and if so do you prefer if the author uses a blog, FB, Twitter or some other media? Or does it not matter to you?
Seductive Musings has a great post about the different social medias from a reader's perspective, and makes the point that for many readers it's the author's website that is the first and most important port of call when looking for up to date info. The post is long but is well worth reading and certainly gave me a lot to think about.
