Friday Roundup: Survey Results and Social Media Tips for Authors

1-30-15The results from the Podcast Survey are back and I sincerely thank everyone who participated.

In the end, I decided to give away more than just 10 books; I actually gave 15 eBooks to the first cluster of people who responded. To those of you who took the survey, I extend another huge thank you.

Now let’s review the responses.

The majority of you use Twitter (100%!), Facebook (93.75%), Google+ (75%), and Pinterest (68.75%). Forty-three percent use Instagram.

In a typical day, 62.5 percent are likely use to social media.

Now this is the best part of the survey. 68.75% of you want to learn more about Google+ and 62.5 percent want to learn more about Twitter.

What this means is that in the near future, you’ll be reading more about how to use Google+, Twitter (my favorite social media network!), Pinterest and Instagram. I won’t neglect LinkedIn or Facebook entirely, but I’ll focus on providing more of the content that you’d like to read and listen to.

Thank you, everyone!
