You've got your classics: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. Then there's Pinterest, Bloglovin', and Tumblr. Then you've got the more "professional" ones: LinkedIn, Google+ (which could also be more "social", but not necessarily), About.me, Mightybell….And the team-project ones: Slack, Trello, Asana. These are only some of the most well-known types of social media! But, how do you know which are right for you, you may ask!?
Personally, I use (click the links to connect with me) Facebook, Bloglovin (of course!), Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, About.Me, and Mightybell.
Although I had a Tumblr back in my senior year of high school/freshman year of college, I soon forgot my email and password for it. I feel like Pinterest is a much more organized version of Tumblr - and I love being organized. Anyone who knows me personally can attest that, at least once, when they've wanted to come visit me in my dorm room at a time when it's superbly messy, I'd either thrown them out when they tried to barge in or shut the door in their face before they could even step a toe inside!

It can get pretty tricky to keep up with the madness that is posting/uploading/whatever it is that people do on the aforementioned platforms, on the regular - although Facebook and Twitter are my daily go-to's! Isn't it crazy to remember the times when DVDs didn't exist, and people didn't have iPods or laptops!? Although it can be ~quite~ overwhelming, I definitely think that even if technology can at times appear to be a "necessary evil", the pros ultimately outweigh the cons.
What are your favorite types of social media to use? How often do you update your accounts? Do you have any clever tricks/strategies to managing your social media posts efficiently?
