As a loud and proud non-Facebook user, I am TIRED of people always posting their Facebook posts automatically to Twitter. Guess what? If I wanted to follow you on Facebook, I WOULD.
I know it’s easy to have everything post everywhere from one spot, but you’re losing fans and followers because of it. If you want to build your network on Facebook, GREAT, I fully support that (except I won’t actually support it because I’m not there…). AND if you want to grow your network on Twitter, grow your network on Twitter. Be active, be talking, engage with people. Don’t auto-post, don’t make me go to your FB page, because I won’t. And I’ll unfollow you.
Social Media is a big responsibility and endeavor to take on in your business. When I talk with clients about what they CAN do and what they WILL do and what they SHOULD do, I’m amazed how many of them think they have to do it all. Blog, Tweet, Facebook, You Tube, etc. But here’s the deal: if you aren’t doing it, you won’t do it. Figure out what will actually work for you, and do that. If Twitter stresses you out, don’t tweet! If you don’t like people, then don’t sign up for Facebook. If you hate writing, then a Blog is a TERRIBLE idea. Be authentic and do what works for you. Don’t try to do everything, because you’re half-assing it and we all notice.
