Title: Community Organizations: Use Social Media to Increase Your Reach

It’s Okay NOT to Write Essays on Your Status Updates & 1,000 Word Articles on Your Blog

14 Sep

No Essays

I understand the power of social media and blogging. I love both. I also understand that we have a lot to say and these tools give us free reign to say what we want and how we want.  However, as an avid reader and writer, I need you to understand that people are NOT trying to read more than 2 paragraphs on your Facebook status update or 1,000 word articles on your blog.  We’re just not.

We are living in a society of information overload and we need you to get to the point. And if you need to write more than 2 paragraphs, add it as a note on your Facebook Page. If you HAVE to write a huge article on your blog, make it two or more posts. This will ensure that you have content and your audience is more likely to read it. Also, if you need practice on keeping your updates short and simple, keep in mind that Twitter has a 140 character limit and text messages are 160 characters; try to stay within those limits.

I’m sorry if I offended anyone, but these long messages are ridiculous.  Especially when you don’t really get the point until the third or fourth paragraph! This message is coming from a writer who reads most of the day. If anyone disagrees with the long status updates and blog posts, leave a comment below and let’s get a conversation going.
