“Twitter is like a calling card. Facebook is like a phone call. Blogging is like a full-fledged conversation!”
What do you think?
I am going to comment on this quote in relation to blogging!
It is a coincidence that I recently reactivated my Twitter account and hence I can comment on this quote with some experience under my belt!
Twitter is quite useful if you want your posts to have a wider audience than just the WordPress community. It is more than a calling card in my opinion. It’s more like a movie preview or trailer.
As far as Facebook is concerned, I feel that its utility is dropping day by day. Publicizing your content on Facebook takes a lot more effort. You have to invite people to view it by asking them to like your page. You also need to be more active on Facebook itself because it is a give-and-take relationship there. It may be a phone call but it is one that you’re going to make. And you will have to call many friends!
Blogging can be a full-fledged conversation, provided that your readers are willing to engage with you via comments. Otherwise, it’s more like a monologue than a conversation!
If one is proactive on any social media platform, you can have a better chance of having your posts/writing read by more people. But the key word is being proactive! In my opinion, Twitter is easier for gaining wider readership and it also introduces us to more writers/bloggers/ people out there who we would like to interact with.
Thank you Tanya for providing this interesting quote for us to analyze.
