By now, everyone I am sure has heard about the new tool Facebook launched for users. No? Well, this tool allows you to store links from News Feed and Facebook Pages–items like links, places, movies TV and music. This way you can view it later when you have time. Hey, in case you save these things and forget, they will even remind you. What is this called “Save”.
Be sure and check it out.
Daniel Giambalvo, Software Engineer at Facebook wrote in in a blog post "You can view the items you saved at any time by going to your saved items in the "More" tab on mobile or by clicking the link on the left hand side of Facebook on the web. The saved items list is organized by category and users can swipe right on each item to share it with their friends or move it into the archive list.” http://newsroom.fb.com/news/2014/07/introducing-save-on-facebook/
Periodically Facebook, Twitter and the other Social Medias release new tools or new ways to do things. Some you may use and some you may not. But I think it would be wise to at least read over what they are, what they are for and determine if this would be a good tool for you to use to get more information out there to bring attention to your books.
Every day, someone is inventing the next great tool for us to use…whether it is or not the jury is still out…however, we need to know what these toos are for. Anything that will help us as writers to be better at our jobs is necessary item to have; especially when it comes to marketing.
