Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, and blogs… I love them all! But recently I’ve been noticing more and more repetition in my feeds: Tweets mentioning IG pic, IG pics mentioning blog posts, Facebook and Twitter reminders about that post from the other day… and I wonder: What’s the etiquette in this new social media situation? How many ways can we mention a post before it gets annoying?
My (totally arbitrary) routine is:
- WordPress sends out an automated tweet every time I blog a post. Very rarely I’ll do a second follow up tweet later, “Hey, did you see my post about _______?” , especially if I’m organizing a challenge/theme/chat and want to spread the word to people in all time zones!
- I don’t mention blog posts on Instagram, although I see an increasing number of people going that route.
- I don’t tweet my Instagram pics, because I get a little tired of my Twitter feed being all external links… but then, a friend who doesn’t have IG mentioned she likes when people tweet the pics as well!
- I keep my sewing almost entirely of Facebook, but that’s just because I use FB mostly to connect with family and long-time friends, not sewists!
Do you cross-post on social media? Why, or why not? And how do you feel when you see multiple reminders for a single post? There’s no right or wrong answer here – I’m just curious to hear your thoughts!
