BlogHer Food Interviews: The Next Level of Twitter & Facebook

BlogHer Original Post

If you've been in the food blogging sphere for awhile, you might be asking yourself how to find what's next, how to keep improving both your blog and your social media space. If so, The Next Level of Twitter and Facebook panel at BlogHer Food '13 is for you. I asked the panelists a question about what that might mean -- that next level:

Your panel is entitled “The Next Level of Facebook & Twitter.” Could you please explain what *you* think that means for attendees? What is YOUR next level?

Lori Lange of Recipe Girl talks about both numbers and engagement as a next level.

The next level of Facebook and Twitter... to me that means increasing engagement with your followers as well as increasing "real" numbers too. The number of followers always seems to be a concern to bloggers, so we're going to talk about strategies you can implement to try and increase those numbers, but it's also about gaining followers who are truly fans too. A large number doesn't do you any good if you're not interacting with people who will ultimately come to your blog and follow you there as well.

My next level? I hope to be able to reach foodies that I haven't been exposed to before and introduce them to my social networks- therefore increasing numbers, gaining access to a wider audience and ultimately inviting more people to follow my blog and support my brand.

Kristen Doyle will also be presenting with Rebecca Otis as moderator.

The Next Level of Twitter and Facebook panel takes place on Day One, June 7, 2013 from 1:00-2:30pm. Here's more of what you can expect from the session:

You’ve worked hard to build a large, engaged audience on Twitter and Facebook – so now what? Go beyond the basics to refine your social media messaging and explore the advanced features, tips, and tricks on the two most popular social media platforms."
