The answer to this question has eluded me for the past few weeks. At what point does an author create a “fan” page?
As we all know, social media is one of the most popular things on the internet right now. Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and so on. There are so many ways for people to advertise, it can sometimes be hard not to get overwhelmed. Facebook is one of the most popular, if not the most popular form of social media out there, and everyone has the option to create their own “page.” I’m curious as to when an author should create this page to help get their name and work out?
I don’t want to come off as arrogant and make people think that I created a page about myself because I want everyone to know how cool I am. But a lot of authors have fan pages and hundreds, if not thousands of likes. I simply would use it as a way to, I suppose judge how popular I am, but only as a way to see how well I’m doing among the rest of the competition. But I mainly want it as another way to communicate with any fans I may generate, and it’s a great way to advertise and get information out in a clear and organized manner. On the other hand, I suppose an author can really call themselves popular when other people begin making fan pages about them.
If anyone has the answer to this question please don’t hesitate to fill me in!
