News From My Social Media Posts

I thought I would try a little experiment and go over some of the things I am posting on social media. If you follow my social streams you will have probably already seen a lot of these articles and posts.

My Google Plus profile usually has posts that I think have a great deal of significance. Some are just for fun, but most have great historic and/or contemporary value. I will also post articles and picture from my websites on this account.

My Google Plus Business Lunch Club Page is where I am most likely to post business and social media articles and information.

Tumbler is probably one of my favorite social media sites at the moment. So you are likely to see a few posts from Tumblr as well. While I love Tumblr, I mostly reblog other people’s posts on that site. But it is a great place for discovering interesting information.
Once in a while I may mention a Pinterest Post. However, I mostly use Pinterest to organize my Tumblr posts.
