Troy Posted April 2, 2015 Report Share Posted April 2, 2015 This will be an interview that takes place on Tweeter, this evening at 8 p.m. EDT. Yeah, I know I said I'm not longer using social media. But I'm more than happy to make an exception for instances like this. An instance where the social platform will be used to support AALBC.com's activities, rather than the other way around. While I'm on the subject, not using social media is actually a lot harder than you would image, at least for someone like me. First often when I'm researching and author, I'll discover that the authors best, if not only, presence is on Facebook. I think this is a really scary trend. Image a world where the only place you can learn about an author is on Facebook? This is not as far fetched as it sounds. When we reach that day, creative and really personalized author websites. Second, many websites require, or make it much easier to create accounts on their website when you use you Twitter of Facebook account (including my own website). Before I posted this I realized my own account is tied to Facebook. I tried to create an account without using social media, and my first attempt failed (something I have to look into). At any rate, I must have dozens of account across the web that use my Facebook credentials as a way to login. Unwinding all of these will not be a trivial activity. Finally, I'm contacted a lot through social media, especially Facebook. Lately I've just been ignoring these communications, but that is obviously not good for business. I do not have a good solution for that, other than updating my profile to say if you want to reach me use email. At the rate things are going, if you are still using email instead of Facebook Instant messenger, or some other social platform to communicate with others you are looked at as if you are in the stone age. Social media, at least for those running a web based business, is really an inextricable part of life. But I like processed food I will do my best to minimize my interaction.
