Has Social Media Impacted Your Reading Habits?
I created a Twitter account to follow my favorite authors over a year ago. Soon after, I quickly learned that social media was an amazing tool. I was able to discover new authors, connect with bloggers who introduced me to new books, and I was able to share my thoughts and opinions on books I had just read. Social media is definitely a powerful marketing tool!
Again, I think social media is amazing. It has impacted my daily reading habits. I admit, I spend many hours of my day reading blog posts and online articles. I check my Facebook numerous times a day as well. Social media keeps me up to date. Through both Twitter and Facebook, I learn about giveaways, cover reveals and what new books an author is working on. I love being so well informed.
I also love that I am able to keep in touch with authors. I get so excited when I get a reply from one of my favorite authors. It really brightens my day. I think social media has had a positive impact on reading overall. Many authors have been discovered this way. Indie authors (my favorite kind) benefit from their followers who re-tweet and support them.
I have also met many amazing people via social media who share my love of reading. There are so many awesome bloggers out there too. I have been fortunate to interact with these wonderful and supportive bloggers who make my cyber experience all the more enjoyable.
Now tell me, has social media impacted your reading habits?
