We had a twitter account from the beginning and, though I had a personal one for only a couple months before, I didn’t really see what the big deal was. It’s too hard to keep up with all the posts, it’s so fast; if you miss something, you’re outta luck. But we have discovered that it’s a great promotional tool. We usually tag our posts with the author’s twitter name so that they know we’re posting a review about them and a lot of time, they’ll retweet our post and we’ll get a lot more traffic that way. Our twitter handle is @Gone_Pecan.
Initially, I didn’t want to have a facebook account because I think facebook is far more personal and I would rather keep the anonymity that twitter provides. We do now have a facebook account, but we don’t get a lot of traffic from there. Our facebook page can be found here.
Both Maggie and I have Goodreads pages, where we use to keep track of what books we read and want to read and post our reviews.
