Who Are All These People?

These are friends of Microstock Diaries – people I’ve written about on this blog. If there are any who you don’t know, then just click their name and the linked social media tools will help you discover who they are and why they’re significant in the microstock industry.

Where’s the Value?

The value in social media is different for everybody, just as everybody uses the tools differently. In my case Twitter keeps me connected, Facebook builds on relationships, and LinkedIn helps me know who’s who.

As you can see by the quantity of people listed above, quite a few people in the microstock market are getting value from these websites in one way or another.

Are You Part of the Conversation?

Are you using these social media tools? Feel free to leave links to your profiles on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn in the comments. You can also follow, friend and link-in with the people you find interesting and/or know from the list above and any posted in the comments below.

    I’ve been on Facebook for as long as I can remember – since I had to use my .edu alum login to use it. I just added you & a bunch of people I know from there. 🙂 I refuse to Twit. That’s a time waster and realistically I don’t have that time to waste. I need to be working. I don’t facebook *much* and when I do, it’s from my Blackberry when Sarah is driving and I’m just sitting. LinkedIn never seemed like a good site to me but I understand why people use it.

    So I’m probably less the “instant” microstock conversation than the “thought out” blogs like this & mine. I like forums & archives. Instead of being this running dialogue in my head, I can get work done THEN think about micro and blog it, talk to micro people, etc.

    My facebook is here for any who want to add me. 🙂 I have a linkedin but it’s not setup or used.

    Thanks for putting everyone on one page. Everyone I’ve met in the industry so far has been terrific and I’m looking forward to connecting with more of you. Please feel free to add me on any of the services.

    I am at LinkedIn for several years. Didn’t have much practical outcome so far, but keep building my network… I see some potential value in it.

    Registered at Twitter recently, didn’t use it at all.

    Never used facebook.

    Here’s my facebook link:
    You’ll be entertained by my profile photos alone, I swear.

    Mention you’re a microstocker, if you do add me. Just so that I don’t think you’re some random weirdo. LOL
