As an online-only medium, we at MetrobayComix.com certainly rely on social media to get the word out about our product. That isn't to say we're experts at it by any means, but we're learning the ropes as we go along.
So I got to thinking the other day that our particular business (i.e. nekkid cartoon ladies gettin' busy) where and how much we can promote on social media. Facebook has the most restrictions, where you technically aren't supposed to show nudity at all - although I see people do it all the time. Tumblr and Twitter are apparently the digital wild west, where you can post anything you want as long as it isn't illegal or hate speech. DeviantART, as most of you I'm sure are aware, is somewhere in between. You can show nudity, but no intercourse. There are also old school messageboards that we frequent from time to time, where various fantasy/fetish communities continue to thrive. They aren't really 'social media' in the strictest sense, but can function in a similar manner when we're trying to target a specific audience.
That said, I often wonder which social media platform is the most effective given the erotic content that we are trying to promote. We have a few hundred fans on each platform, so that's pretty much a wash. It seems to me that DA offers the widest range of options, and makes it easy for us to share our promotional content via the other platforms. I mean, that's why I blog and post covers here and not on Tumblr or anywhere else. But what do you think? Do you monitor any of these services often enough for our message to get to you? Is there a platform out there that perhaps we're unaware of? I'll be interested to hear what any and all of you have to say, because I certainly don't have all the answers.
