Why You Should Join All Social Media Networks
Jane Friedman’s blog suggests this: “I recommend that as soon as you find out about a new social media service, join it.”
She admits at the outset that most of us don’t want to spend more time using social media. It can be addictive and we keep checking this one and that one. But, she has an idea worth considering here.
Join early, get the best possible user name, and then (hopefully) get found by all those people who sign up after you.
She doesn’t even see a downside to letting the account sit there relatively inactive until the place takes off or you feel a need to use it.
Maybe this will work.
