Every Sunday morning, after I post my blog, I check to see how many people are following me on all the social networks. So here is how those figures have grown since I started keeping track in June of 2012.
Facebook 249 then 325 now
Twitter 191 then 529 now
LinkedIn 48 then 257 now
GoodReads 42 then 190 now
When I look at the numbers that way, it looks pretty good. When I look each week and have only grown by 20 or 30 between all of them, it doesn't seem like much. I still don't get much out of Twitter; I haven't felt as if I've promoted myself there at all. Too many people clicking through too many tweets. How does one stand out with all that input? I like LinkedIn and Goodreads because I actually have connected with people.
What social networks do you belong to and how important is it to you that your numbers grow?
