Scrapbookers and the industry as a whole have totally jumped on the social media bandwagon. Back in the “dark ages” we had Flickr, then came Facebook profiles and Twitter accounts and now every scrapbook business you can fathom has a Fan page. And you can even make them all talk to each other!
First off, I want to offer a sincere welcome to all those just entering the sphere (or even just considering it). Blogs and social media are the places where conversations happen today – so you’re in the right places to make like-minded friends and consume information in a way that fits your lifestyle. Cheers!
In today’s discussion, I’d like to dig a little deeper into how YOU as a scrapbooker, photographer and memory keeper are bringing social media into your process. (And let’s focus on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and other similar sites – not blogs – here.)
Here are some questions to get you started:
- Do you use social media to document your stories? preserve/share photos?
- Do you use social media to learn about new products and trends?
- How does social media help/hinder your process? your sense of community?
- Has social media changed the industry? how do you see that evolving?
It is my hope we can demystify social media, what it is and the how’s and why’s of its role in scrapbooking. If there is something you “don’t get” about it, please feel free to ask. Simple Scrapper is your safe place to talk, share and learn from each other!
