I'm Not on Facebook!

For some reason I have resisted being on Facebook. I have this blog, I'm on Twitter, Goodreads, and Linked-In, but I can't bring myself to be on Facebook. Maybe it's because I hear about the thousands of friends people have that puts me off.  Friends? Really? Or all the crazy things that happen to people on there because of what someone else decides to share about them. Yet, when promoting books, I'm told that Facebook is a place where I should definitely be. What do you think? What has been your experience with Facebook? I'd love to hear comments from you. Maybe I can be persuaded to join, or maybe you'll just confirm my current status.

  1. I'm not sure about FB either, Jeanette - nor Twitter if it comes to that. I'm on both with goodness knows how many followers. But I can honestly say I don't think I've sold a book from either. But then, I also don't keep posting "buy my book" as some do - and those posts do get tedious. I'd love to hear of anyone who thinks they made a successful campaign on either.

  2. Thanks Susan, it looks like you've had the same experience I have. There has to be a balance between promoting your book and turning people off.
