#BlogJune 27 – Social Media audit


I use different social media for different purposes. They have different strengths and suit different types of communication for different areas of life. There are some that I know I’m not making the most out of. I’ve made up a table that summarises what social media platforms I use, how privately, how actively, and how I use them:

 
Platform Privacy Active How I Use It
 Twitter public daily Lightly work related; occasionally off-topic. Mostly reading and sharing library-related links, retweeting other people.
Facebook & Messenger real-life friends only daily Personal. Entertainment, humour, news. No library stuff other than what I think will appeal to my family and friends. Keeping in contact with people, co-ordinating events and get-togethers etc.
 Tumblr anonymous daily Entertainment, humour, art and design. Also started a very seldom-updated library-related tumblr blog, which I must have thought was a good a idea at the time.
WordPress (blog)  public fluctuates (at the moment daily, but ask me again when BlogJune’s over…) Lightly work/library related; occasionally off-topic. Been a bit more personal lately during BlogJune
 Instagram public every few weeks Personal. Normally post photos on insta and push to facebook rather than uploading directly to fb. I’m trying to find my own “groove” with it. Still taking photos of sunsets and cups of coffee which is a bit basic/generic – I need to make it my own.
 Linkedin public seldom Mostly a static page. Little interaction. Only update with new qualifications, new job etc
 Last.fm anonymous seldom (though the plug-in for Spotify and iTunes is always on) Recording everything I listen to. Little interaction.
 GoodReads anonymous seldom Recording everything I read. Little interaction.
