Getting Started with Facebook

SmartInsights.com tells us that ten years ago, 7{f1791e21317150ef16b724493368daace7010ce61c13caaf39cf91ea8f458df6} of the US population used one (or more) social media sites. In the past decade, that figure has jumped to more than 65{f1791e21317150ef16b724493368daace7010ce61c13caaf39cf91ea8f458df6}. That’s right, well over half of the US population is active on social media.

The largest and most well-known social media site is Facebook, currently with more than 2 billion (yes, with a “B”) active users. Three-quarters of US social media users visit at least once a day.

Several of you have let me know that you don’t care for social media and especially dislike Facebook. And, while I feel your pain, that’s an awful lot of prospective readers to walk away from, isn’t it?

Trienah has asked me to teach her about establishing an author presence on the world’s largest social media site so we’re going to have that conversation here — within this post and its comments. Watch this space. (And feel free to join us in the comments.)

Help! My Writing & Publishing Journey Would Be Better If…

We have a wonderful situation on our hands. And, because you are our first members, you get to share the wealth.

Some of our prolific, award-winning contributors keep asking me what I’d like them to blog about.

We’ve got lots of resources and experience here, so I’m setting up this post to make it simple for you to request the content that would help you the most. Eventually, we will have another location for those requests but, for now, have at it. Please comment here.

Getting to Know You…

Am I the only one who, having grown up on Broadway musical soundtracks, is about to burst into song? (We were sort of an odd lot, with parents just as likely to play marches as lullabies when we hit the sack.)

I am in the enviable position of knowing all of you — at least a little bit — and am anxious for you to get to know one another. When I think about the support you’ll be able to bring to one another, I’m even more excited about this project than I was before. And that’s saying a lot.

Please use the comments to introduce yourselves while I add another couple of private posts to get the communications started. Thanks!
