The one and only Larissa Ione is here and talking about the Role of Social Media Networks (Facebbok, twitter...) on Her life.
Welcome Larissa! My blog is your blog:
I’m so excited to be here for Demonica week (I mean, seriously – how cool is that???) at Larissa’s Life. (Doesn’t she have a cool name? *g*)
Anyway, I asked Larissa for a suggestion for a blog post, and she thought it might be neat to talk about social media. Great idea, because things like Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter have been providing for a lot of communication between readers and authors, and I love it.
Oh, there are the downsides – say something stupid, and it’s out there for EVERYONE to see. It’s also really easy to take something out of context, especially on Twitter, where you only have 140 characters to communicate. And one of the worst parts? It’s kind of like being in an office, where you can overhear people talking bad about you. Yeah, I’ve heard some real, um, interesting things about what a few readers think of my books on Twitter!
But there’s the good side too! I have met SO many fantastic people (including Larissa) on Twitter, blogs, and Facebook. I’ve also gotten some great book and shopping recommendations, discovered new blogs, and have even used social networking for research. Yep – throw a question out on Twitter, and someone will know the answer or point you to the right place to get the answer.
So…what about you? Do you participate in any of the social media craziness? If so, what have you liked the most about it?
Thanks again for having me, Larissa!"
Thanks for stopping by Larissa!
Thank you all for tuning in, I'll see you tomorrow!
