Everyone knows what facebook is so im not going to explain this one but say just one thing:Get a facebook page for your blog!Get your friends to click like and each one that does a link will be posted so all their friends can see and so on.
A facebook page is essential to any blog.
Just about everyone knows about twitter so im not going to explain this one either but just say one thing:Get a twitter account for your blog!Link it to your blog so that a message gets sent out to your twitter followers every time you make a post on your blog.
A twitter account is essential to any blog.
Twiends is a great way to find twitter followers who are interested in the same things you are. For example, you can add blogging to your interests and then it will list all those people who also have blogging as an interest. It also provides the ability to gain facebook fans or turn your credits into website views.
Please follow the rules and best practices provided by twitter.It has the ability to drastically boost your twitter followers so if your new to twitter it night be a good way to get you started.Be careful to use it in moderation because twitter may ban your account if you go crazy following and unfollowing hundreds of people everyday.Twitter stats that every user can follow 2,000 people tolal.Once you've followed 2,000 users, there are limits to the number of additional users you can follow:This limit is different for every user and is based on your ratio of followers to following. Obviously celebrities are once again the exception to the rules.
