As a blogger I am always looking for the latest and greatest forms of social media to promote my blog and reach new readers. As a middle aged woman there are sites I don't understand and I have no idea what they even do. Why after all, do I need Snapchat? I had it. It bored me. I deleted it. What is VK? I still can't figure out why I need Tumbler or how to use it. Pheed is something, but I am not sure what.
This week I added Stumble Upon to my social media profile and I must admit I am still learning the best ways to use this. I like how it gives you stuff to read based on your interests and I have found a couple of tweet worthy stories to share but I don't know how it is suppose to help me grow my blog.
I also started researching the latest and greatest social media sites. Imagine my surprise when I read that MySpace has grown almost 600% in the last year.
MySpace, the same site I haven't been on in what? 8 years? The place I have been away from so long I forgot what email and what password I actually used to sign up. So I headed over to check it out and imagine my surprise when I got there.
Myspace is sharp, modern, and way more interesting to use than Facebook. You can play music, you can share photos and you can update status. More than that, if actually gives you an option to share the same post on Twitter or Facebook. I was shocked. Why do people not know this? This isn't Google+, which let's face it, I still haven't figured out the purpose of other than to share my blog. This is fun. This has potential. Are you one it? I need friends because nobody I know has a MySpace account anymore so click my button and friend me! (I even added it to my page).
Now, I haven't had a change to play with it but you can bet the next time my husband is out of town and I have a free hour, I am going to make my page amazing because I actually think if people knew how cool it was their Facebook would become...well, MySpace. So go over and check it out. You can thank me later. No really....you can.
So, tell me what you favorite non-traditional (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram) social media sites are. Is there anything out there just screaming to you, 'people need to use me'?
