EC Facebook Page Deleted

Hi All!
I'm having a busy posting day. After much consideration, I have deleted my Enchanted Conversation Facebook page.

I detest everything about Facebook. I don't have a good reason for this. I don't think other people are wrong to like it. I just don't.

But I will continue to have a personal Facebook page. Just ask to friend me, as Kate Wolford, on Facebook, but please also send me an email at enchantedconversation@gmail.com, letting me know you've made a request. I do not friend people just because they ask, unless it's a true friend or family member or an EC fan. If you have been following me through the Enchanted Conversation page, you have until the next submission window opens to change the way you follow. If you have already submitted for this issue and have indicated you follow on the Facebook Enchanted Conversation page, no problem.

While I'm on the topic, when you are looking to follow me on Pinterest, as Kate Wolford, just search for my name or "New Posts at Enchanted Conversation." Then just start following. This is the easiest way to follow.

Or, you can follow me on Twitter, by just looking for my name as Katharine Wolford.

Google+ is under Enchanted Conversation.

Remember, you need only follow one way.

  1. I'm embarrassed to say I can't remember if I even Liked the EC Facebook page. But I'm going to send you a friend request because I actually do keep in touch with friends that way best (my current fav social media is Instagram, but it's not the best for keeping in touch with friends...just for seeing art and photos). :)

  2. Even though I use Facebook a lot, I still sometimes see it as a complete waste of time. I usually just check your updated posts by going directly to your website.

  3. I've gone to quite a few social media workshops for writers and the instructors always stress that it doesn't matter which site you use or how many, as long as you use the one that works best for you. They always say that you shouldn't feel pressured to use FB or Twitter just because you feel like you should. I think as long as you keep the newsletter, you'll be just fine.

    I'm in a weird place where I love using FB for personal stuff, but find it time consuming to keep a steady stream of content posted on the Timeless Tales FB page. I gave it lots of thought and eventually decided it was worth outsourcing the FB posting rather than giving up on it entirely, so I got a social media manager who rocks...but yeah, social media is a hungry dragon and you really have to love feeding it to make it worth it long term.

    1. I use Facebook for friends and family, but really love Pinterest. It's just that it doesn't help a writing oriented websites too much! :(

  4. I think you made the right decision, Kate. At one time, I was running three Facebook business pages. Just generating content for them was too time consuming, and I found it didn't really "sell product" either...AND then FB changed their policies and made it more difficult to be seen in people's newsfeeds. They structured it so that business pages really have to pay ad fees to be seen in the all-important newsfeeds. A win for them - a lose for the business pages. I find Twitter connects much more directly with Followers for me. Oh, and I'll Friend Request you on FB.

    1. I never liked Facebook's look at all. The page just bored me. I'll confirm your friend request.

  5. I only use social media sites for sites that say you have to connect to x to get y.

  6. Found this via an open submissions market page on Facebook. I follow a few contacts there -- mostly family and close friends -- but I agree with the consensus here. FB is a boring time drain, but the occasional jewels, such as this site, are rare delights.
    I love fairy tales and folklore!
    Anyway, I followed you on Twitter. Still somewhat new to Pinterest but will look for you there. :)
