Kyle encourages us to establish a presence on social media, Facebook and Google+ are two that I have focused on. Faithful to his instructions I have posted my image and written an honest human description of myself, who and what I am. These are supposed to establish trust and be the basis of a reader/author relationship.
The problem is that instead of finding new consumers for my blog, I am getting hit on. Every week I'm getting friend requests from men I don't know. They say they want to "get to know me".
I am a 65 year old career woman, and a partner in a 35 year happy ongoing marriage. I have no time and no interest in developing a "friendship" with a man who uses Facebook for a dating service.
How do they find me?
I am really unclear how this is going to help me get traffic for my website.
In addition, I feel quite vulnerable when they know so much about me.
I'm tempted to close both those social media accounts.
Any thoughts on this would be welcome.
