Hi everyone. What's the social media site that you often use?

I'm not very familiar with goodreads and bookrix. What does it do?

For me, in order of use (estimated):
1) Tumblr
2) My blog
3) This forum
4) Goodreads
5) You Tube (although I don't actually interact much, just watch videos)
6) Literary Rambles blog - awesome for YA/MG writers in search of an agent
7) Facebook (b/c it's mandatory these days, don't yah know).

I could not get into twitter, even though I feel like I ought to like it. I read tweets and twitter conversations sometimes & I just don't think it's for me.

Oh, and, actually, my husband has gotten me a bit hooked on reddit, although I don't have my own account, and my usage is sporadic.

Did you mean social networking? If so, for me it's:

1. Facebook - open almost all the time when I'm online
2. LiveJournal - read daily, post weekly or more often
3. YouTube - regularly watch, less often sharing
4. Flickr - image uploading/sharing
5. LinkedIn - business, maybe post or visit 1-2 times a month

I also more rarely use Pinterest (I have little spats of liking/repinning then forget it for weeks/months), Meetup, and CrunchyRoll (only for viewing, never for the social stuff).

(I'm a web developer, so I follow the strict meaning of "social networking" which precludes personally hosted/individual blogs and forums. A site must have specific features to be a social networking site, so while LiveJournal is one, WordPress and Blogger are not). :) )

For me, most used to least used, it's:

- Tumblr (I have two blogs running - one kinda smutty and one not)
- Twitter
- WordPress
- Personal website
- Goodreads

I don't yet have a Facebook page for my writing pseudonym, and I'm not sure if that will actually happen.

I use only two, plus one for my book, Facebook and Twitter (And I prefer Facebook. Whatever I post there, it appears on Twitter.). And of course there is the offical website. Oh, and my newest experiment is Zazzle for the merchandise line (Posters, Postcards, U.S. stamps, Mugs, Phone Cases, etc, etc...).

Facebook (Almost 5000 followers)
Twitter (Around 300 followers)
Official Website (Flash based)
Merchandise Store on Zazzle (21 Product Lines, ~1300 Products) <--- This one has a good forum and a large customer base.

In the past I also tried Goodreads, Pinterest and some forums, but Facebook works the best for my book.

Thanks for the elebook link.

I have yet to figure out how to get ANYTHING out of Goodreads! Most of the discussions are on books I've never read and have little desire to do so. And, I'm not certain how to get anything going on the various books I've published.

Amazon.com community is huge but that too has produced no results for me. I guess I just don't know how to sell.

I'm not certain about Facebook and haven't got any feedback on Linkdin [sp?].

I went to the site but am unsure of how LinkedIn works. Help.

I find myself enjoying Google+ a great deal. World wide coverage and some awesome pictures and cartoons.

At the moment I'm experimenting largely with Facebook and Goodreads. Though I've recently started on twitter so we will see how that goes.
