I had to get a Facebook page. People kept asking after shows. I bowed to social pressure.

I am not looking for everyone to randomly like it. Just clarifying that every time I said I didn't have one up until today it was true.

Facebook is okay for promotion, but Twitter is much more powerful if you are trying to drive traffic to your show announcements.

I have no idea about using it for promotion. I only do it for a couple of reasons. First I get swamped after the show with people asking and I feel stupid not having one. It has gotten past being cool not being on the bandwagon. Second of all it helps to have a place to direct them for the company site.

It is nothing to do with rpomotion but simpk y keeping up with requests post show. Sort of backwards from most thinking.

I don't do Facebook. I have an account, but it lies dormant. I'm with Betty White ("an incredible waste of time.") mbut if anyone wants a Twitter follow, give a shout.

The goal of a facebook fan page is usually promotional in nature. You can promote your act, your services and when people like your page, any updates you put on the page (like the next time you are appearing somewhere) it appears in their newsfeed. It is a great place to post some clips of yourself, announce the next performance, etc. the downslide is that unless the "like" the page or happen to run across it, no one sees your promotion.

Twitter on the other hand can have a much higher reach than Facebook because anyone who retweets your post puts it in front of all their followrs and if one of their followers retweets, it goes out to all their followers: it usually results in exponential coverage.

Between the two of them, they are both powerful, must have tools for any performer.

I don't get it, all the tweeties I know are glorified groupies who follow the day to day brushing and flossing of celebrities.

You'd be surprised Al. I have about 2,000 twitter followers and it grows by a dozen or so a week. When I promote something through twitter, it usually reaches about 30,000 people and drives A LOT of traiffic.
