Update: This will close after 24 hours – read more about why here.

Today I want to try something a little different and want to invite you to share your social media profiles with us (please read the ‘rules’ below before participating).

  • Are you active on social media sites?
  • Do you want to find more friends and followers?
  • Do you want to find other bloggers to follow and network with?

If so – you’re not alone and I want to give you an opportunity to do just that.

Today I want to do something that could get messy (I reserve the right to close this down if it does) – but could also be a lot of fun.

In comments below – leave links to any of your social media profiles that you want to promote. Once you’ve done so – start adding others on the list! This will only work if people make connections rather than just promote themselves.

I don’t know what will happen when we do this but I do know that we all have one thing in common here – we want to build better blogs and we all read ProBlogger. So why not build on this and see if we can work together on social media?

The ‘Rules’:

  • You must include the word – ‘social media’ in your comment. This is simply so that we can find any of your comments that get caught in our spam filter. If you don’t include it your comment may not appear.
  • You can use html in the comment to make your links live (this will make people finding your profile pages easier)
  • So that we keep some order to this – please limit your links to 10

My Links:

I’ll kick us off with some of my own.

Some are more active than others.

Now it’s over to you. I hope this works!

Update: WOW – this IS getting crazy. Please be patient with me as I work through all the comments in the spam filter. We’re getting there! Do remember to add others that you find and also include the words ‘social media’ in your comment so we can make sure everyone is added.

Update 2: Due to the popularity of this I’m going to close it after 24 hours and then compile all the information into some pages that will make befriending people easier. Read more about that here.

Update 3: If you guys could just post the URLs, that would be great. I’m essentially copying and pasting, and you cut my time by 50% if you post just the URL (ie. Don’t bother writing “Twitter” and linking it, just post your Twitter URL). It’ll automatically link it for you if you make sure you’ve included the “http” part right through to the end. If you’ve already posted, please don’t repost, but if you haven’t posted yet, I’d really appreciate this! :) – Lara

Update 4: Okay gang, there are nearly 700 comments! I’ve spent almost 5 hours this morning creating the Twitter page, and still have more to put up there. I’m not sure how we’re going to work out releasing them, maybe one network a day or something like that. Darren and I will work that out in a few hours when he wakes up, and I’m sure he’ll update you on that. Thanks to everyone who has commented and been patient with us getting you out of the spam folder! More updates coming soon. – Lara

  5. I’m sending in a new set of social media links for my new gaming podcast, Atomic Array.

    You can find the social media links in the various ‘Add This’ widgets. The ones I’m focusing on right now are on the right side, under “Spread the Word.”

  6. Social Media!

    I am ramping up a new blog on workplace collaboration using IT tools. I call it “sharing at work”.

    Please check out my links! I invite anyone who is also interested in knowledge sharing and workplace collaboration to visit my blog, leave a comment, e-mail me a link to your related blog, or anything at all really.
