Social Media!

I’m looking at the responses to my post on Office Romance and I am amazed at all of the people who’ve met their significant others at work! Maybe I should start kissing my colleagues. Here’s where it would be really helpful if the managing editor would allow cocktails at the Friday morning edit meeting.

As we ease into the weekend, I want to draw your attention to a mini-contest we’re having. Our web guy is ALWAYS saying things like, “Do you think you can get X many people to sign up for the newsletter by Y date?” and he just threw down AGAIN.

Here’s the deal. If we can get up to 600 likes on our Facebook page by the end of Monday, June 25, 2012, some lucky winner is going to get a print book from F+W Media (our parent company)!

So, go to our Facebook page, like it if you haven’t already, then take the poll, which asks you to pick the book you want to win if your name is randomly chosen. Then tell all your friends so that we can get to 600 likes! Once you take the poll, you’ve entered the contest! If we get our 600 likes, we’ll pick a name and send a book!

We love Facebook but we’re also on Twitter and Pinterest. What’s your favorite form of social media — and why? Tell Crimson in the comments.

    When I am not assisting Crimson Romance with its social media I am probably on Facebook the most! It is still my favorite although Twitter and Pinterest are not far behind!! I love social media; it’s so much fun!

    I am a Facebook addict! I can lose hours on the website, which is very unfortunate since I often tell myself, “Oh, I’ll just check Facebook really quickly,” before starting on the work in progress…

    When I signed up for Facebook a few years ago, I just thought it would be a good way to keep in touch with my far-flung family. It does that beautifully, but now it provides book recommendations, humor, practical information, new acquaintances . . . and pictures of hot men! What next???

    I’m a newbie on Twitter, but like its concise format — no blathering on for days on that site. As for FB, since they only feed 20% of the posts on fan pages these days, it’s not as fun as it once was. I’d liken social media to falling into an abyss. Once you’ve entered the world, it’s easy to get obsessive and stay on there all day, every day. Don’t we all scramble to find out what new “followers” we have on Twitter or who is “liking” us on FB? LOL
