Social Networking Sites: What-nots.

January 24, 2010

Social Networking Sites (e.g., Facebook, Myspace, or Tumblr), or what we usually call SNS, are these avenues that we log into to meet new friends and catch up with old ones. But over the years, I have learned that even the most well-written article can be dismissed if your post is not too viral. If you want a good message to be heard, you should:

1. the content must be appealing in some way that it has a target audience/reader. Having a mixed-audience target will be really tricky.

2. wait until the peak hours before posting because if you post too early, your post will just be buried under a lot of meaningless applications updates, pics spam and whatnots. If you post too late, nobody will be awake to reply on your message and again, it will be buried under the dust of early morning posters.

3. subtly asking friends to repost or reblog will do wonders. But then again, if they do it on off-peak hours hours, this attempt might be useless.

4. Writing/blogging/photoblogging should be enjoyed and must not be a one-time thing. In order to gain an audience, there should be a continuous flow of media that the audience can peruse upon.

5. (Sleepy. Can't think. Will go to bed now)

Well, as you can see, Purple Peaches is still a baby. It only has few posts and zero followers but I will still continue to write about things that I love and the things I love to hate. You see, SNS has people following me that I actually know hence limiting my posts to be as sensitive as I can be to them and to limit them from reading posts that I would not want them, in any way, to read (e.g., a rant that is totally about them). So I have decided to make this blog an outlet of  my rants and raves. Don't worry, I'll try to make them as interesting as possible.
