I’ve been taking to my social media accounts more often lately, but mostly for beauty blogging, not book blogging. It’s caused me to look at how I use each of the platforms I have.
My Instagram has always been mostly nail looks, and now I do a lot of eye-of-the-day posts. My Twitter is a little more varied, with connections and discussions with both authors and other bloggers, for beauty and books. I have Facebook pages for both of my blogs, but I find it easier to post stuff on my beauty page.
All this has lead me to wonder, how should I use social media effectively as it relates to book blogging? I get how to use Twitter, but what about Instagram and Facebook? Facebook is complex as just sharing links doesn’t get seen by basically anybody. You have to do straight status posts or upload pictures for it to pop up in anyone’s feed. For Instagram, I’m even more lost. I can share what I’m currently reading, but that’s all I know to do.
Does anyone have tips on how to use Facebook and Instagram for book blogging? What do you do on them?
