Social Networking Tinkering

I spent a little bit of time tinkering with social networking materials. I went to the http://www.addthis.com site and added a button to share my posts and share my blog with the various social networking sites.

I also joined Twitter. I am not quite sure why I did this, but it seemed interesting, but fairly ineffective. I also tinkered with the different functions on blogcatalog so Facebook was a recognized function of my blogcatalog listings. This is mostly fooling around with different functions. It is very easy to waste a lot of time doing these various things.

Now, I am a little more networked into the social sites. It should be interesting to see if it makes any difference in total blog traffic.

I know exactly what you mean. I've heard too much negativity about Facebook though (viruses, etc.), so I stay away from that. I am on Blog Catalog and I've joined three other networkings (plus Amazon "Connect"), but I just wonder...does this stuff work???

I think part of this is the only way you can figure out if this works is to experiment. It is all too new to know. People can make claims, but most really are winging it. I certaininly don't know what is happening.
