The Blank Slate: How Do You Use Social Media?

The Blank Slate: How Do You Use Social Media?

As a designer today, there are sooo many different ways to get your work out to the masses. Within minutes you can post a new portfolio piece and have hundreds or maybe even thousands of people view and comment on it. But this also means that we’re all on an equal playing field. Large firms are competing for views with mid-level and even novice designers.

I’ve seen some really great ways in which designers are utilizing sites like Twitter and Facebook to display their work. These profiles have to be incredibly unique in order to grab peoples attention and hold it long enough to stick around and view what is being offered. So this week I’d love to know…

    I create and maintain the home pages for local Wrestling organizations, and I have done so for years. When it comes to Social Media? I do dive to deep into those waters. Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and of course, You Tube. I see some websites with links to their profile on DOZENS of Networking sites, a bulk of which are all very similar. To me it’s just over kill.

    Facebook for to share events and updates, Twitter to quick blurbs of news and interesting facts, Flickr for sharing high resolution photos without bogging down the server, and You Tube for sharing video promos, event recaps, and etc.

    To me it’s a big hassle. I don’t like the idea of maintaining profiles on ten to twenty different Social Media networks. Maintaining the website, the main Social Media profiles that I mentioned, the e-mails, and creating and editing promotional material for past and future shows is enough thanks!

      Meant to say, “Do Not Dive To Deep”. Sorry about that.

  2. Good advice Gerry… I agree that keeping it simple when it comes to social networking is key. There are so many sites that ARE very similar. It’s a good idea to stick with the main 4 that you mentioned. Thanks for sharing!
