THE NOT SO SOCIAL NETWORKER

Let's be honest, I am not a wizard when it comes to social media. That's mainly because I'm no whiz at any form of social interaction whatsoever. For instance, as of today’s date, my friends list on Facebook has a whopping 102 people on it. I'm pretty sure that's supposed to be an official indication that I'm some kind of a pariah.

That being said, I'm trying to get better. On January 1st, I began a couple of experiments you're all welcome to take part in. Over on Twitter, I'm going to be posting a tweet-review of a different movie each and every day. It looks something like this...

I'm on Twitter as EegahInc (naturally) if you want to follow and have some fun.

Meanwhile, over on Instagram, I'm posting a daily piece of art taken from various movie posters, along with an appropriate quote to go along with the image.

Unsurprisingly, I'm also on Instagram as EegahInc. Feel free to follow if you're in the neighborhood.

As long as I’m at it, I may as well list everything. There is a Facebook page for the B-Movie Catechism (just in case that isn’t where you’re reading this), which also has links to my Aleteia and SCENES articles, along with the stray comment here and there. I’m also on Facebook as myself, though the real me is pretty boring. Probably explains that whole pariah thing.

Finally, I’m trying out Letterboxd, where I’m slowly going to collect all of my old reviews from various outlets in one place. I’m just getting started, but we’ll see where it goes.

Anyway, that’s what I’m up to on social media this year. Maybe I’ll see some of you around. Or maybe not. Wouldn’t want to ruin my image as a pariah, would I?

P.S. Just for the record, none of my social media accounts contain any political commentary or content (which might also explain that pariah thing). The online world of EegahInc consists almost entirely of God and multimedia. Not a bad place to hang out, really.

Just a suggestion for Twitter, since you have that collection of cartoons you drew, you could also keep reposting those. And if the pictures were in the posts, as opposed to a website link, they would be easier to share. Just a suggestion.

Not a bad idea. I still have to colorize most of my older ones, though. That will probably take a while. I've thought about starting up a new series in a different style that wouldn't take so long to produce.

You have given me a reason to go back to Twitter! My one and only feed is from Papa Francisus.

Not sure I'm worthy enough to share a feed with the Pope, but I'll take it :)
