What are Social Media Sites and How Do I Use Them?

Here, at Gone To Texas Marketing, we understand that the reason there are so many different Social Media sites, is because people are different. People like to get information in different ways. This is why you'll find us, not only on the World Wide Web, but on a Mobile Friendly version of our site as well. Please look below and follow us on the Social Media site of your choice. If you follow a different social site that you would like for us to be included on, please email us at dorian@gttphoto.com so we can see about getting started on that site.

We have included the design of each Social Media site, or a how-to guide as a "did you know" segment.

Facebook - This is basically a public conversation with everyone who is friends (or likes) the poster or the person (or business) whose wall has been written on.

Twitter - Limited to 140 characters. This is the place where hash-tags (#), or keywords are used. A Twitter user can see anyone who posts a comments, without being friends or following a specific individual by "discovering" topics of conversations, using hash-tags.

Google+ - Basically the same as Facebook, except you can specify exactly who you share things with, called "circles". You can create circles for co-workers, friends, acquaintances, etc. If you have an Android phone or a gmail account, you're on Google+. (Android is owned by Google).

LinkedIn - This is essentially an online Resume' with references. Connections can endorse you and you can post completed projects, such as designs, blueprints, public speaking accomplishments, etc.

Social Media is Everywhere!

FourSquare - Designed for people to "check-in" and let others know where they are, or have been. If you have the app on your phone, it will prompt you to rate the location where you are, and you will sometimes get recommendations or rewards for checking in and using the app.

YouTube - A video-sharing website where visitors can upload, view and share videos (owned by Google). Videos can be shared for public or private viewing and all videos are automatically converted to .SWF (Flash Video) files, meaning the viewer must have Adobe Flash installed on the viewing device.

Flickr! - An online community for photo and video sharing (owned by Yahoo!). You can post images so others can download different quality of images or lock images down completely to not allow any downloading. We have all images on this site, completely unlocked so you can download any image you like.

Pinterest - A pinboard-style photo-sharing website that allows us to create and manage theme-based image collections such as event, interests, and hobbies. From this site, you can "re-pin" images to your own pinboard, or "like" photos. Here we have information we have created or found else on the World Wide Web that we feel is informative and/or fun.

Instagram - This is another photo-sharing, video-sharing and social media service that is primarily a mobile site. With this site, you can apply digital filters and share them on other social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr. Unlike our Mobile App Photo-sharing feature, Instagram allows viewers to share photos or videos instantly to these social media sites.
