This chapter shows you how posting on social media can be immensely useful for writers with just a few minutes’ investment of time per day. We distinguish between and define social media and social networking, and look at their potential roles at different stages of the publication process. We review different platform types and advise on how to select the most appropriate platforms for your work. We take you through the pros and cons of posting your writing on social media. Our PIPs show how some of this can work in practice, and hands-on exercises take you through the next steps for your own work.
