It’s called social media for a reason. It is important to be sociable on social platforms, you need to talk to your audience, ask them questions and answer their questions. There are lots of ways in which you can engage with your audience, find out which ones work for you.
5) Don’t annoy your followers
Just because you have followers doesn’t mean you can bombard them with whatever content you want.
