I work in social media for my 9-5 job. Not those hours, but you know what I mean, and then I am all over social within blog land. I received quite a few emails last week after I posted this photo asking me to write about my tips and advice. I would love to oblige but Sparkles and Shoes is a fashion and lifestyle blog, not a tips and tricks about digital, so none of that funny business here but I will share something on the subject. You think someone who is this entranced in socail would know all of the basic facts and statistics but I have recently been surprised by a few, take a look:
