A lot of us have a Myspace page, or a Facebook page, LinkedIn or are on Twitter, Plurk, MommyTalk.com or another social media website where we interact and connect with others, either for business purposes, social purposes or to catch up with old friends.
When I first signed upon MySpace it was the first time I’d been involved in social media, I was also learning alot about HTML markup at the time so MySpace filled two spots, musical interest, and the ability to practice what I knew of HTML.
I enjoyed it at first a lot, read a lot of bloggers that blog only on MySpace – and there are a lot there that are stellar bloggers, limited by the MySpace audience. One in particular that I enjoyed immensely still blogs on MySpace and by all accounts is very successful there, and has even written a book since.
I started blogging for the first time on MySpace. It was sheltered and useful in that I was able to learn my style, how I like to write and address people and I especially liked that I could control who saw the blog.
I’m interested in how you use social media, I have a MySpace page, LinkedIn, Twitter, MyBlogLog (which I hardly log onto anymore) and am open to others that might forward my cause as a blogger.
What are your thoughts on social media? A waste of time, or valuable resource?
