Randel McGee just started a forum about Social Media by mentioning his son's blog on the topic of how to use the ever expanding computer social networks for promoting your work and art. This is an area where there must be search engines I'm missing. I know Ning lets you search for Ning groups by topic. Is it that simple? Go to Facebook, for example, & prowl their topics? If you're primarily looking at a specific geographical area, is that possible, too?
Once you find those areas that match your venues, what are the good ways, yes, & the bad ways to promote yourself?
