    I use social media to the fullest possible extent that I can, however a few things you mentioned I am not doing. Yet, some things I am. I pay attention to detail such as what pages do best, what gets “shared” most, etc. But sometimes I can’t seem to figure out why one can do extremely well, and then one that has great info in my opinion, can not do so well? I guess we are always learning as we go, thanks Donna!

      Great to see you here, Jaye – thank you! Glad you found some different ideas – and I think some of why our items shared don’t do as well as others – maybe – what’s trending, the people that are on line at the time of the share, and us, of course, knowing our audience! 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving!
