Social Media By Hogwarts House

In addition to authoring and brooding, I also am an expert on social media. For today’s blog post, I wanted to have a little bit of fun with social media.

Drumroll…

It’s time for Social Media by Hogwarts House! (yes, the title was a bit of a spoiler.) So, scroll down, find your house, and get your homework to improve your social media presence.

Gryffindor

Ah, brave Gryffindor.

You’re direct, and focused. Not one to waste time, your social media plan is efficient, and you often use a site such as tweetdeck to manage your site

BUT You lose interest at sites when you’re not “good” at them

Your homework: learn a new site, or skill. Maybe it’s time to tackle Tumblr, or time to work on your coding skills to build a better blog

You have knowledge, and you have opinions. Your social media gameplan is to increase and share those things.

BUT you don’t participate in conversations. You only lecture, link tweets to form mini-essays, and #overuse #any #hashtag #you #can #to #share

Your homework: get social with your social media! Have some fun by complementing other’s artwork/writing/thoughts.

Your loyalty and kindness is legendary. Across all your social media platforms, you interact in a kind, genuine way with your friends.

BUT you tend to “follow” more people than you have followers. Content to interact with your closest friends, you have a hard time using social media as anything more than a public version of your Whatsapp/GChat discussion

Your homework: do some self-promoting if you have a book. Or, use a tag like #amwriting to extend your network outward.

You are flawless.

I kid. I’m a Slytherin too, you see, so naturally, our flaws are harder for me to see. Our cunning minds let us learn new sites easily, and we’re loyal to the friends we meet online.

So what could our homework possibly be?

Uh… we could learn to be a bit humble on social media. No, that doesn’t mean humblebragging. It just means reducing our ego, just a bit, as to not seem like a giant jerk online.

 

There you have it! Is your house accurate? Tell me in the comments!
