the Huc & Gabet website http://www.hucandgabetbooks.com.au/
was being constructed late last year, my web designers suggested a
number of social media thingys that I should sign up for. Their
number one suggestion was facebook, followed closely by Twitter and
Instagram. My immediate and maintained response was that facebook
was a definite “never”, twitter was a “possible but I would
rather not” and instagram was a “what the hell is instagram”.
In the end Twitter and Instagram did become part of my on line
portfolio and Huc & Gabet on facebook remains where it was before
be honest, after 6 months i'm still not 100% with the whole Twitter
and Instagram thing. I think I need to spend a little bit of time
with it, time which I feel could be better used elsewhere.
Regardless of my hesitant and unprofessional use of these social
medias, I have managed to keep up a steady stream of information and
images. What does amaze me is that some of these posts do get hits
and do get people interested.
image above, which is a full scan of the front cover, was cropped down to
Instagram squareness and posted on Instagram. Somehow it got quite a few looks pretty much straight
after I posted it. I wonder if this is people who hang around on
Instagram waiting for anything tagged “waste management” or was it
the “Manly, Mosman, Pittwater and Warringah” connection that
caused the stir. I'm not sure. I'd like to think it was both.
