Social Media for the Weekend Writer

Like it or not social media has taken over the world.  Oftentimes breaking  news is reported on social media before mainstream media.  I learned of Maya Angelou's passing on twitter.  My first reaction was it must be another internet hoax since Good Morning America and CNN were not mentioning it. The news of  Dr. May Angelou's death began trending immediately and about an hour later mainstream media caught up. In the time it took traditional media to catch up I had cried, told my mom and called my daughter whose name is  Maya to remind her she too is  a phenomenal woman.  If you're trying to reach the masses you are going to have  to swim  in the social media pool.  Hopefully these 5 tips will help you become a social media success.
