New Feature: Friday Facebook FUN!

Some voice talents publish their Twitter feeds on their blogs. The classy CourVO had a quick one today while the last Twitter update I was able to track down for Dave was for May 28. Karen Commins covers a week at a time. Here are:
Twitter updates from Karen for the week preceeding Mon Jun 21, 2010.
They both provide quick links to articles, interviews and videos. Cool!

I do not Twitter - BUT I do enjoy social media and learning from folks like Dave and Karen. Many voice talents are very good at social media while many others are in it for the numbers (ie. followers, statistics). I enjoy Facebook as "friends" can be engaging. Other "friends" can be enraging it seems...

Anyway, a BIG thank you should be extended to Dave Courvoisier and Terry Daniel for the new SocialMediaVO website launched in Los Angeles recently at the VOICE 2010 conference. It is:
Social Media...by voice actors, for voice actors. 
Lots to explore and build your voice over business!

So, NO Twitter updates from me. But how about Friday Facebook FUN?
