    I am not, mostly because my phone is not smart. It is, in fact, very stupid... I mean ZERO internet, no camera, nothing. smile)) This is due to the fact that I have the Hades touch when it comes to cellular devices. I am not to be trusted. I even break other people's phones!!

    But, instagram sounds like a good idea. Are you using it?

    Yeah, I'm not familiar with using instagram period, much less to promote my hubs. Would be interesting.

    No, I find that, for the most part, social media users, especially from a social media site driven by images (pretty pictures), have a very short attention span, and maybe they'll click on a pretty picture but once they see a wall of words will just leave.  There may be some traffic, but certainly not quality traffic. 

    I've seen some people at work use it, generally they just look at the pictures and that's it.  They generally just use it to look at pictures and kill some time.

    If I'm going to use social media I'll stick to ones that may at least deliver some traffic that results in a click here and there.

    I generally promote with xomba, folkd, reddit etc..  even if I get no traffic, I'll still get some link juice from them.

    If anyone is having success with it I'd like to know, I personally don't see it worth the time and effort.
