Social media & networking doesn’t have to be all about status updates and sharing links. After all – it is called social MEDIA.
Think of how you can creatively engage with your friends and followers through images. There are some fun ways you can interact with your social friends – find a way that works for you.
Here are a few places you can explore with:
Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, Tumblr, Daily Booth
Let me share with you my two favorite ways and how to add them to your Facebook Page in less than 5 minutes each.
A place to collect the things you love around the internet. Just named the 3rd largest social network, if you have yet to check it out, do so now!
How many times have you visited a cute website and wanted to share an image or snippet that you found? With Pinterest you can show off your finds on your networks. Show your friends your style and what you love. Allow them to connect with you through images. Create your own virtual vision board.
You can add a badge to your website or plugin to display your latest pics.
