Even now, it's a different world (social media) than it even was when I posted this in 2015. I shouldn't have dismissed social media from the start. I was just plain wrong.

    True. It is powerful but flooded these days. It’s like the Dot Com bust imagine being there at the start.

    Many of those accounts are automated with fake replies to comments and messages. It’s great if you are 22 F, dog mom, loves to travel, Macha drinker, posts daily squat videos. Then the kingdom of social media is yours in 2019. Lol

    I could never feel comfortable posting about myself. Just seems so weird to me.

Bombarding people with posts on social media is akin to that damn little commercial jingle you can't get out of your head. Nationwide is on my side!

    But think about the sites or people you can easily remember off the top of your head. They post. Alot. Everyday.

    Now I said I'm not sure how I feel about it because I've always been a quality over quantity guy and I know you are too. Which this site does well too. And I'm not suggesting you alter your principles, but it seems posting things, anything to help get you name out as often as possible. Combine with the network aspect. You'd be surprised how many people will follow you just because you followed them. Sort of an unspoken reciprocity clause or something.

    Just an idea. Maybe post pics like you mentioned. Success stories or testimonials. Old articles you've written over the years. Memes. Even current events in the fields of BB, PL, et. Like recaps of shows, cool videos of record attempts etc..

    old post bump. I don't do social media, all my coworkers love it. I prefer a private life. It is one of those things, right place at right time. 2019 it is cooked.

    Well the hash tag actually would benefit them unless they post your hash tags as well.

    I always hashtag both of them.

    I always use hashtags but they have always been ones that apply just to me. I am going to have to suck it up and start using the stupid ones like #fitfam and shit like that. *sigh* I hate this shit.

    This would be good.

    Some of the stuff from EliteFTS come up on my feed and the discussion/likes are minimal. I think it's mostly training logs, though.

    Or getting good results from training an athlete/model/whoever with a huge IG following can help as well.

    They certainly aren't the same. A lot of people are getting away from FB and those on Twitter usually aren't on IG. IG tends to be a younger demographic with a very short attention span. EG: Memes and pictures are huge on IG while on Twitter people will read articles/blogs, QAs, interviews, etc..

    I don't think it's just generational, but also the way that you like to consume information. I'm more of a visual person, and also more introverted. So twitter never really appealed to me. I'm not into making comments on things or sharing my views (I will occasionally comment on Facebook or IG, though rarely), but I do like photography/art/etc. I know that in this industry there isn't a lot of that, but I do also follow accounts on Instagram like Nat Geo, photographers, tattoo artists, etc. So IG would be the way to reach people like me, but what you post on there has to align to what they're looking for (but I'm not necessarily the 'model' user).

    Plus, I think you can link IG to facebook such that whatever you post on IG shows up automatically on FB.
