#SocialMedia

Author: Charlotte O'Shea

This isn’t a feature on my thoughts on the various social media channels and how on earth anyone finds the time to keep up with them all (that’s to come at some point I’m sure) but rather a Friday afternoon “ponder”. Rock My Style dabbles with a fair few social media platforms, you may well already follow one or two… What I want to know is, what is it you would like to well… See on the various different channels?

Pinterest

You can find our Pinterest account here. We’ve got various different boards covering all of our different categories as well as a few extra areas that we feel deserve their own.

Is there anything you folks would like us to inspire you with imagery wise? Or anything you wish we could expand on that we already cover? Pinterest in completely addictive. I have to set myself designated time otherwise I can literally lose myself for an hour or two and not even realise.

Twitter

You can find our Twitter account here. We use this for networking with brands we might like to feature and whatnot. Do you use Twitter? what kind of thing makes you follow a particular account?

Facebook

You can find our Facebook account here. We post updates to our features on a daily basis, from experience we know that quite a few of our readers essentially wait for the Facebook reminder in order to come on over to the blog. We also post various discussional topics, anything we feel is “news worthy” and the odd amusing quote or two.

Do you rely on Facebook to link to features? or is there anything else you would like to see in your feed?

Instagram

You can find our instagram account here. We tend to post our prettiest pictures from features and various bits and bobs from behind the scenes. From a personal perspective this is the channel I use the most, I love looking at beautiful photography and I find most of my inspiration from the amazing talent I witness as I scroll through the profiles I follow.

As I mentioned, we appreciate it’s time consuming keeping up to date with everything all of the time, and the last thing we want to do is repeat content constantly, however, we also need to make sure no-one misses out on anything particularly fabulous.

If you don’t necessarily have the time to leave your thoughts in the comment section this afternoon (It’s Friday, I hope you’re all planning your weekend and helping yourself to a brownie) but any time you have a spare five minutes over the weekend would be much appreciated.

  1. I used to have a twitter but I found it a bit difficult to keep up with (I often only checked once a day and found that scrolling through it all took too long and I lost interest). I use facebook a lot, but not to link to this blog (I follow on bloglovin, so link through there when I check my bloglovin). I too love pinterest, and can lose many hours on it. I follow the Rock My Style boards, but I’d also like additional content pinned from elsewhere other than the blog. i read most of the blog posts so have seen most of the pics you put on pinterest before. I’d love to see more interiors inspiration on pinterest, from different sources and of different styles. Whilst I love your own homes that you have shared on here, it would be great to see some others in different styles (I feel the blog interiors featured so far are much of the same style). Hope that helps! I love the blog, and ultimately visit it to read your articles and look at the pictures, I’d do that with or without the social media so I think social media works well as an addition to the blog, rather than a way to link to it. xx

    1. Thanks M-J, a really helpful comment, I’ll take note on the interiors suggestion definitely and we are certainly making a concerted effort to pin a wider range of inspiration x

  2. I love Twitter – find it so much more interesting than Facebook! I follow a cross between local businesses – food, drink and entertainment to fashion peeps including journalists, models etc to a lot of Formula 1 people – I love my sport!

    Facebook is getting boring but I still check it. If it’s not these ice bucket challenges it’s people putting their 2 pence worth in about the referendum ….. who don’t even live here! I can’t wait for it to be done already!

    I love Instagram and I have Pinterest but I don’t really use it.

    1. I have a confession, I am (and always have been) crap at Facebook, I have it on my phone and still get confused with how to use it. Luckily we have very experienced and knowledgeable folk running the company accounts 🙂

      Instagram seems like a running favourite x

  3. I think RMS rocks on Instagram. Insta has such a clean, easy-to-use interface and it’s basically there to highlight pretty things – which RMS does so well.
    Twitter, in terms of brands/companies, is useful but it’s not particular ‘exciting’ – I tend to follow brands or things I’m interested in in case the have a giveaway or competition that I’d like to know about.
    I’m not interested in following brands on Facebook, For me, Facebook is my personal social networking place – where I keep up to date with family and friends. I also don’t think it’s particularly well set-up for seeing pretty stuff in the way that Instagram is – things get a bit lost in the news feed (among the ice bucket challenges).
    I only go to Pinterest when I want something/am looking for something specific – which could sometimes mean I don’t visit for weeks at a time. When I do go, I totally agree – it’s addictive and amazing – but I think it’s a “when you need it” place not a “I must check it daily” place. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, I love my hour-long pinterest sessions when they come round. 😉

  4. I use Facebook for personal use (although I do follow RMS and RMW) and I barely use Twitter. I love Pinterest but agree with the comment that because I read the blog I don’t need to see those images on there. I have recently got into Instagram and I would notice your content most on there.

    However none of these trigger me to read the blog as it I check it on the train to and from work- if is part of my daily commute, so thanks for making that more bearable!

  5. I’m on facebook daily and I enjoy the feeds of all the things I love: movies (particular films or general movie websites), hotels I spent holidays in the past or in the future (I looov Lakelovers 🙂 ), cafés (I frequent or I wanna go),music, florist, photographers, cake suppliers (I still love all their posts, although my wedding is already over), radio stations, fashion sites. I think I get more feeds from theses sites then from my friends. However, I also like to keep in touch with my friends and family, as we do not live in the same city and so I know what they’re up to.
    I never tried twitter or instagram. I just don’t know what the use of these sites is.
    BUT… I love pinterest. I got to know it, when I was planning my wedding. Afterwards I felt sad, as I didn’t need all that much inspiration on weddings anymore. But I found a solution and now I mostly pin recipes from food blogs.
    For the Rockmystyle blog I don’t need a reminder 🙂 I visit it once or twice a week…
