Social Network – “An association of people drawn together by family, work or hobby”. The term was first coined by professor J. A. Barnes in the 1950s. At that time he had defined the size as well to be between 100 to 150 people. If you are aware of the current size of any social networking sites size…. it runs into millions, the number of customer connected to each other or trying to establish connections.

Online social networking occurs through a variety of websites that allow users to share content, interact and develop communities around similar interests.

How Can Social Networking Help Promote My Blog?

One of the most important parts of building a successful blog is creating a community around it. Social networking gives bloggers the opportunity to interact with like-minded individuals who may be interested in reading more from the blogger thereby potentially increasing traffic to his or her blog.

Social networking sites allow users to create groups around similar interests and make connections with people from all walks of life. It also gives bloggers a chance to interact with new people who may not find their blogs through keyword searches. In short, social networking provides one more portal for bloggers to get their names and messages in front of people who may be interested in visiting their blogs.

This way the more the number of people attached to you through the social network websites the greater the chances for them to visit your website whenever there is a new update or post on the website. There are also chances for these people to promote your blog directly or indirectly. So greater your presence on a social network the greater the chances of you blog getting promoted.

As you can see there are a lot of social networking sites available for us to take advantage of the free blog promotion. So register to these sites and promote your blog with least stress. We would, in the forthcoming posts look at these social network sites with their reviews, ways to increase followers, positioning yourself to get more followers etc.
