I’m only making this post in case someone on Facebook sees my new profile and thinks it’s an imposter. I’ve had incidences of people pretending to be me over the past few years.
I searched around for good writing groups where I could keep updated on the latest stuff happening in the publishing industry, tips on fine-tuning writing, and different promotional techniques, but it turns out, Facebook has the best groups for this information. So I bit the bullet and created a new account.
This account is strictly for business. I’m not going to engage with anyone in a social manner where I go to their timeline and comment on their posts. I have MeWe for that. Facebook will be for my books and that’s it.
I know Facebook is supposed to be for social engagements, but that part of it is too divided with a lot of fighting. That’s why I left. I’m going to give this new strategy a try.
Everything I do on Facebook is going to be business all the time. Some authors get reported on Facebook for promoting their books. Some authors don’t. I don’t know what triggers the system. So, if you are the type who gets annoyed by authors promoting their books all the time, do not friend me over there.
That disclaimer aside, here’s my new profile. I’m starting from scratch. I feel it’s best to have everything brand new. The old account is completely wiped out, and for that, I’m grateful. So we’ll see how things go.
In the meantime, if anyone knows of a good writing group over there, let me know.
I’ve kept my account but I’m only checking a few groups and viewing the posts facebook notifies me of (like for instance I get an alert when Jonathan “updates his status”). Other than that, I’m done, and I’ve had a much better week!
I agree. I’m done with anything else over there, too. I have enough drama going on in my personal life without having Facebook add to it.
I love your Facebook timeline. I think your plan is a good one. It limits getting tied up in the incidentals. God bless.
Thanks! I’m hoping for a much better experience.
