Which social media site would your characters use the most?
Do they like precise information, bite-sized stories like on Twitter? Would they be snapping picture evidence of their life for Instagram? Would they have a news feed catered to only their interests like on Tumblr? Do they have a favorite social media site or do they hop around between several? Are their own posts to the sites concise, all over the place, a good medium?
As writers, social media is important in reaching out to fellow authors, writers, and readers. Right now, we’re on one of the most popular blogging sites to share our thoughts and stories with one another. That’s the ultimate goal of social media sites — to connect.
So, how would your characters connect with others in their world through social media? How would your characters react to anonymous praise, critique, trolls? How private would they keep their settings? How often would they post? Would they connect more with people they know face-to-face or make friends with people from all over the world?
What would a stranger, or a reader, conclude about your character just from reading their social media sites?
