I'm eager to get reader's thoughts on the pros and cons of including social networking along with blogging about books. I've developed links on Twitter and Facebook specific to my blog, not as a focus for my IRL friends, but just focused on the love of books and reviewing. I wish to avoid the trolls that lurk around and pop up occasionally. My goal is to use this avenue purely as a tool.
Please tell me how/if you use these, and how they help you promote books, other than just announcing you've completed a review or news of a giveaway. I realize it can be time consuming, so I would like your pro opinion on what works and what doesn't.
Publicists have indicated they'd like me to use these to further promote titles. I'm just not sure how to go about this. ANY ADVICE is appreciated.
For a trial period, I'm on Twitter at @blacksheepdance (lose the 's') and Facebook as The Black Sheep Dances.
