Social Media Networking & Bookmarking Buttons

Book authors are at the mercy of the Internet and need to pay a lot more attention to creating a web presence if they hope to compete in this new marketplace. Creating a web presence can be as simple as joining a social media network to developing a website or blog. There is a vast amount of virtual real estate in between, including Internet communities, content-providing blogs, mini blogs, micro blogs, interest groups, political forums and other conversational crowds vying to waste your time and get you to spend your money.

One of the difficulties of today’s communications are the tons of information that accompany our searches on the internet. Just key in an inquiry and count the number of responses your keywords reveal–millions! We must constantly protect ourselves from information overload and be sure not to mistake information for knowledge. Information is not knowledge.
