Facebook Merger 2

Friday, March 6th, 2015

 

So, I’ve completed merging both my personal and my author account on facebook.

 

The results of this have been positive so far, though it’s only been a few weeks, so it’s very likely I’ll still come to regret merging both accounts.

 

My author account was far larger than my personal account, so I requested all friends and family from my personal account to add my author account. From there, I restricted alot of pictures and personal information to be viewed only by friends and family in a small list that I created.

 

So far, I’m enjoying the results: I’m able to interact with friends and family, and still devote time to interacting with other authors, readers, and reviewers in my network. This saves an extraordinary amount of time, as before the merger I would have to log in and out of two separate accounts.

 

The only downside I’ve seen so far, is that now that I have some personal information on the account, I feel much more cautious about who I request and/or accept friendship requests from. I’ve had one or two instances where one or two persons repeatedly overstepped clear boundaries in communication that I had set, and I was forced to delete them. Since then, I make certain to do a cursory screening of each person who reaches out to me.

 

This, along with the fact that I synchronized kwmmcabe.org with twitter, google+, and facebook, has created a very streamlined and dynamic way of interacting with each of my networks on the web.

 

The next step is getting myself off the web to go write.

 

Wish me luck! I need it.  :-/

 

Triberr, Klout, and Social Medias

Sunday, November 20th, 2011

 

 

 

So I have to say that it’s amazing the things you can learn on Facebook.

 

I recently learned about Triberr a network dedicated to enhancing traffic to blogs. It’s like the blogger’s version of Facebook.

 

Although, I can’t say for sure because an invitation code is also required to join.  This is unfortunate because I have had the most difficult time finding a person who was giving out the codes.  The closed-off-have-to-have-a-code technique sort of reminded me of livejournal before it was open to everyone.
Now this might also be a way that they attempt to prevent spammers and bots from joining- which, if this is the case, is cool.

 

I understand that.

 

Now, if I could just get someone to send me an invite- I might even forgive them!

 

The next social media site I just learned about on Facebook is Klout.

 

Which, I think, is actually an ingenious way of monitoring the influence and traffic passing through all of your social medias.  The only problem is that I haven’t been able to get it to connect to my google or blogger account.  Which is unfortunate because those are the accounts I most want to monitor.

 

I’m assuming, because it’s in beta, that this is a bug that will soon be fixed.

 

In any case, I’m still on the warpath- the great battle to increase my readership.

 

If you have any suggestions- just let me know!

 

P.S. I just got the code for Triberr they are forgiven in full lol
