A Little Advice from Bholenath
If you haven’t registered on a lot of social media websites, and if you intend to use social sites to connect with other horror fans, I recommend you to read some of these articles:
I’m still not big on social media, and I can give only the (personal) opinions that I’m making about them as I go.
Ultimately, social media websites are what the communities inhabiting them make them. No one can ever give an objective, clinical review of social media websites, other than the little one-sided opinions one forms out of one’s personal experience.
Many reasons can influence your usage of social media for horror, a few needs that come to mind:
- To Belong to The Horror Crowd at Large
- To Join Horror Communities
- To have a Horror fans Support System
- To share Horror-related Stuff
- To do Horror Business Networking
- To do Horror Social Networking
- To enjoy Horror Entertainment
- To find a Horror-related job
- To keep up to date with Horror News
- To add more Horror People to your Contacts
- To Maintain the Social Media Presence of a Horror-related Business
- To be Alerted of Upcoming Horror Events
Whatever your reason to join a social media website as a horror fan, my best piece of advice is this: study and/or join as many of them as you can and your time allows.
I’m giving you this advice because you can never know which site is going to be more agreeable to you if you don’t join them all and connect with other horror fans in all of them.
Until you use them (even before joining, as a lurker), you aren’t going to have an idea of how the horror communities in each site work, and you aren’t going to be able to even make a mental picture of how it feels to use them, because you don’t have direct experience.
Also, it’s important to use and experience as many as you can, because you never know in which of them you are going to feel more at home. That’s why it’s better to join as many as you can and using them for a while (say, six months) until deciding to focus on one or several only.
