Using Social Media to Become More Frugal

in Living Frugally

I’m not what you would call a social media junkie, but I am fairly social media proficient; I use Twitter and Facebook, both as tools professionally and personally. And of course I blog which is, lest we forget, one of the most common social media or Web 2.0 tools around.

I was interested in how others use social media to become more frugal, so I put the question to others on Twitter: How do you use social media to become more frugal? And here’s what they had to say:

  • Enga71429@AlmostFrugal by teaming up with people like you to find out all the deals:)
  • mmmeg@AlmostFrugal I’m inspired by friends I’ve met on Twitter to be more frugal. Plus they are a great source of useful links.

  • GreenestDollar@AlmostFrugal I actually learn a lot of $-saving tips on Twitter, and can find out about frugal bloggers and $-saving sites.

  • BabyCheapskate@AlmostFrugal Not to give the obvious answer, but I’ve found out about tons of deals posted on frugal bloggers’ sites via Twitter.
  • frugalforlife@AlmostFrugal They help me look back and see what I have done or thought about – small steps through frugality.

How do you use social media to become (or stay) frugal?

Do you use Twitter? In a span of one week, we saw several events unfold in the Twitterverse. These were some of them. Read them through and let me know what you think.

You know, I’ve never really considered social media as a way to keep me frugal. In fact, if anything I’d say it keeps me online way more than I would be normally which is un-frugal of me, considering the power consumption. But, it does allow me to keep up with others who are definitely more frugal conscious than I am, which keeps me up-to-date on their goings on and frugal ideas. So, I guess in that sense, Twitter is helping me towards the path of Frugality.

I’ve used social media to be thrifty with my startup business. I use Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon, etc. I haven’t spent any money on advertising, just time to promote it with these tools. I also learn a ton of new business information for free by interacting with others online.
