If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that over the last 14 or so weeks, my feed looks different that in used to. There is a little more cohesion, an overall style and colour scheme that repeats and I've actually managed to maintain that!

This will be the last post in my mini Social Media Series. I covered the platforms I currently use. I hope you enjoyed this series and found it helpful.

I'm back with another post in my mini Social Media Series. Today’s topic is Facebook and as always, I'll start with my disclaimer by admitting I’m no expert (like at ALL).
This article is more about what I’ve learned about being on Facebook. Things that have helped or hindered me. Hopefully, some of this will be useful to you guys too.
