It's Time for the Yearly Check-in on . . .

Social Media! Once again, I thought I'd tap your collective brain to get a sense of where readers are at on the social media front. I have a Facebook and Twitter account, but I am not active on either platform. I do, however, watch from the sidelines to see how they are being used by others and to what effectiveness. I have some thoughts on the matter, but I thought I'd see what you guys think. So here are a few questions:

1. Are you active on Twitter and/or Facebook?
2. What is your preferred way to interact with authors: a blog, Facebook, twitter, email (or it doesn't really matter)?
3. Do you follow all your favorite authors?
4. Have you ever bought/not bought a book because of an experience on one of the social media platforms?

If you have any other thoughts, I'd love to hear them!

And just to keep those eyes entertained, how about this picture of THOR's Christ Hemsworth. I guess hair color doesn't matter--blond or brunette looks good to me. Maybe he can inspire more than one Guardsman . . . LOL.
