4 Time-Saving Social Media Tips by Frances Caballo, via CS Larkin

social media pins4 Time-Saving Social Media Tips was blogged on a terrific blog Live Write Thrive that I started following recently written by Susanne Larkin. For the writers out there, Susanne’s blog is extremely useful.

There are a few people in my circle who I feel sure will find this blog interesting! They know who they are, wonderful people like the TTG – @WhoseShoes who in fact, is the one who inspired me to tweet more, changing my attitude that twitter was only for twits???

As it is not possible to hit the ‘re-blog’ button on Susanne’s page because there isn’t one, I’ll copy and paste it over in part.

It is well worth the read, so do follow the link to the full article:

Today’s guest post is from social media expert Frances Caballo, who has some great tips for writers on streamlining and assessing time spent on social media sites. She’s just released a new book called Avoid Social Media Time Suck, which I’ve devoured and highly recommend every writer purchase! This is just a short bit from her book:

  1. Hi Kate

    I had just been browsing around on social media … posting a tweet here, ‘liking’ a FB update there, commenting on a blog or two.. I was just going to do something on my ‘to do’ list when I came across this fascinating blog by my friend Kate Swaffer…

    It is very hard to use the ‘too busy’ basket or the ‘no’ basket when there is so much interesting stuff around!

    Much love from #TTG 😉 xox

The only thing missing in this global conversation is YOUR voice... Thank you.
