Maybe the title of this post makes sense only in my head, but let’s ignore it. Here is a question I am dying to ask just anybody who is willing to answer – How many social media accounts is ‘too many social media accounts’? Optimists who believe in the power of self-promotion will probably say “there is no such thing as too much social media”. Especially if you need to promote stuff.

Here’s the thing, there was a point when I did not have an instagram account and even wanted to delete my Facebook account. Because except for posting my travel pictures occasionally, I would never do anything on Facebook. The only reason I did not flush it out of my life was because it was more useful than LinkedIn when it came to looking for media jobs. I am not kidding. I studied in one of the top Journalism colleges in my country and they have a very strong alumni network on Facebook. So almost every second day, some or the other alumni posts media-related vacancies on the college page.

Now I am on

  1. Instagram
  2. Twitter
  3. WordPress
  4. Quora
  5. Facebook
  6. LinkedIn

And just today I published my first post on about “10 Things I learnt as a new Indie Author”. After I finished publishing the post, I wondered to my self “aren’t I on too many social media sites?!”.

Apparently not. What do you think?
