Hey all - do you tweet, use facebook, linkedin, foursquare, etc? Have you thought at all about how to use these tools to further your acting career? You should.
Here's a few places to look for ideas on how to do that.
Chris Brogan helps small businesses use social networking more effectively. He blogs, tweets, writes a newsletter that are all free. He's also written some e-books and actual books. I read his book Trust Agents, and was glad I did. If nothing else, he advocates a 30/30/30 rule for using online tools - 30% of your time 'listening' 30% commenting or otherwise adding value to what others are putting out there and 30% of your time creating original content (status updates, tweets, etc).
Bonnie Gillespie (who I've mentioned before) writes a terrific weekly column on the acting business. Here's where she answers a question about when to use social networking to contact agents and casting directors, which also links to an older column that's a bit more comprehensive.
In side news, I booked an industrial for HP today! It shoots next week!
