I finally figured out how to get a vid into this blog.  Why does this one have different requirements than my robinoneill blog?

Like everything else on the internet, in short order people abuse it and everyone starts getting annoyed.  Now it's Twitter, which I joined less than a month ago.

Social media is about INTERACTING.  You're putting yourself out into the virtual world, showing people what you are, what you're thinking about, what you're doing.

Social media doesn't mean spamming Facebook or Twitter with endless links to your books.  Why would someone want to read your book if you haven't proven to them you're interesting as a person?  You're not Burma Shave.  You can't expect a billboard 16 times a day passing by people that says READ MY GREAT BOOK to actually get anyone to read your book.

You can expect it but you're delusional.  Sorry.  I'm all out of tact for the day and it's only 6:30 am.
