I would like to have your opinion on this question; Should authors spend time on social media or should they spend all their time writing and editing? I am asking this question because after having been on social media for a few years, I feel way better without them. In the past, I was on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest. I have deleted all my accounts the same day. I took this decision after reading Cal Newport's books "Deep Work" and "Digital Minimalism". I also saw that other authors share almost the same advice, especially James Scott Bell when he is talking about almost a zero ROI (return on investment). The reasons I did it are; - I was feeling anxious when I was comparing myself with other friends, receiving insults or feeling bad after a post I made received no comments or likes. - My real friends are not on social media so why spend time to talk to fake friends and acquaintances or work colleagues? - I was loosing way too much time when I was on social media. I prefer to spend my time doing something more valuable. And you, as an author or wannabe author, do you use social media? If yes, how many different social media accounts do you have? Which one? Do you have one social media you prefer to use as an author? How much time do you spend every week on them? Have you ever sold books via social media? Thanks for your comments!
