Feeling overwhelmed by social media? Wondering where to start? Here is a simple tip
There are many detailed books on social media, for instance on Facebook, which will take you through all the different features step by step with lots of screen shots. And there are many books about social media from a marketing perspective
Plenty of information, but which book is right for you?
Go to your local library and take out a whole bunch of them. At home go through them at your leisure, read the ones you like and ignore the others – at no cost
Ask you library whether they have an on-line catalogue. Here in the south west of the UK we have a central on-line catalogue for all libraries in the south west. Search the catalogue on-line and reserve books from any of the member libraries. For only 50p it will get taken to your local library and you will receive an email once your books have arrived
Pick a topic you’re interested in, such as “Facebook” or “Social media”, search the online catalogue and order all books which look vaguely interesting. Take the whole stack of books home and see which one speaks to you most. If you come across a book which is particularly useful you can buy your own copy from your favourite store
Concerned about paying library fines? You may be able to get an email when your books are nearly overdue, and renew the books on-line. No more worries about getting books back too late or having to rush back to the library to renew books
Getting books from the library removes the pressure of getting just the right book. Instead get as many books as you can carry, read the ones you like and ignore the rest
