If I Were a Writer…How Would I Use Social Media? | Social Media Today.

Social media and being an author

Historically publishers determined the careers of many authors, they were the gatekeepers to getting a book into print; despite publishers turning down their work some writerswere successful. But for the majority of writers getting into print was an elusive dream.

However, whilst publishers still wield large amounts of power, their control has diminshed. Writers can self-publish, sell directly and have a direct relationship with their followers. People write for different reasons. For many it is the process of being creative that is important, the ability to express thoughts, emotions and make human connections.
