Hey Nicholas, Great post! I think LinkedIn is the best platform among all the other ones. Here you can boost your business network. Here I found some other networking sites which haven’t heard from before, thanks for sharing them.
I’m so glad you found the list useful, Elena!
Someday, maybe, in another lifetime most likely, I’ll THINK about adding in more social media. But thanks for sharing, despite my lack of serious interest. LOL
Lol – you’re welcome 😀
Horrible! Think on all the efforts security services are have to observe every single one. Lol Thank you for sharing, Nicholas! Indeed, a great way for advertising. Have a beautiful week! Michael
Sounds like a nightmare alright! Thank you Michael, you too 🙂
No problemo. I can incorporate all of these sites into my daily schedule because after writing twelve time-travel novels, I’m pretty sure I know how it works.
Ha ha – lucky you 😀
