My Burning Brain

Facebook, Google and Google +
Twitter and Pinterest and Blog Spot
Wanelo and all the rest
How do I learn all of this social networking mess?

Is it really necessary to do this
Why can't I just go to Etsy and list
Can't people find my shop, without all this other goobley gop?
Apparently NOT.
So, I will continue to try to learn until my brain starts to burn.  


Today on the Promotional Frenzy Team social networking seemed to be the topic between the members.
I have never used any of these sites, until I joined Etsy, and learned it seems to be necessary to get your shop and information out into the "Cyber World" to be noticed.
I honestly don't know what I expected. I guess just to open a shop, and BAM customers would come running to buy HA HA.. "The jokes on me"
I actually do enjoy learning all this, and I love doing my crafts and trying to sell on Etsy.

Here is a  list of the 15 most popular social networking sites. Some of them I've never heard of, and at this point I don't think I want to. I am having a hard enough time keeping up with the ones I am learning now. 
I am posting the link if you want to check the rest of them out. I am just posting a few of the one's I know, and how many Unique (whatever that means) "monthly visitors" they receive.
