From Cheryl's Writing Crate
When I want to unwind and have a little internet fun the first place I usually head to is facebook. Though I was skeptical when I first learned of facebook well over five years ago, now I can't imagine going a day or two without visiting my trusty news feed to see what's been going on since I last logged on.
I often refer to facebook as my personal playground. It' here where I can connect with dozens of friends and family and learn what's going on in their lives, check out their recent photos, laugh at silly cartoons and jokes, and find interesting articles and information about nearly anything under the sun.
As a mom, I'm able to see what's trending in parenting--the latest products, advice, and even support groups. As a writer, I'm also able to glean up-to-date information from hot authors, writing gurus and fellow bloggers.
Today, I found a very interesting and informative article that focused on clever ways to increase fan interaction while using facebook. It was like hitting the jackpot so I wanted to share it with you--fellow writers and interested readers so perhaps some of these ideas will help you connect with more fans and followers.
