If you want to create a robust online brand and share your passions and expertise with as many people as possible, you will need to expand your reach beyond just HubPages. While many people do so on personal websites and blogs, it makes a lot of sense to maintain a presence where everyone else is- namely on major social networks.
To help you make the most of the most popular online hangouts, namely Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Google+, we will be rolling out a series of new Learning Center entries offering tips on making the most of the unique features you’ll encounter on each one.
The first new guide we have rolled out covers Twitter. We hope you find it useful! Some of the major points we cover include:
- The Tweet This button on Hubs
- Setting up a good Twitter profile
- Moderation and balance
- Interaction with fellow Twitter users
- Major Twitter tools
- Interacting with HubPages on Twitter
What is the biggest Twitter tip we can offer? Only get involved with the network if you would like to do so as a genuine user. This entails following people whose tweets you will at least occasionally read, interacting with other users, and sharing a variety of things- not just links, but plain text tweets, photos, retweets, and @mentions.
Avoid creating accounts (on Twitter or any site) that are just designed to promote Hubs. They’ll ultimately be a waste of your time- not to mention a lost opportunity! Twitter is an excellent place to discover new people and ideas, find inspiration, and further develop your following. By following some simple best practices, you can gain a great deal from all this site has to offer.
