    I have a programming website. I did not utilize social networking sites for it so far but i will start soon. I dont have experience with social networking websites.I would like to hear your opinions about my plan described below.

    In this programming web site, i am publishing tips (code snippets) for that programming language e.g. how to copy a file (e.g. with pyton), how to delete a file etc.
    Assume that a few tips are published weekly.

    My plan is to open accounts on following social networking sites: (1) twitter, facebook, google+ (2) instagram, pinterest, flicker
    I did not use any of the social networking sites (i may have checked one in the past) in the second list. But as far as i know, you can share photos in those platforms.

    So, for the first group, my idea is (1) to open an account on twitter, create a page on fb and google+ and (2) to share titles of new tips (e.g. how to copy a file) with urls to the detailed tip page on my website (every week). Is this a good idea?

    I am not sure about the second group of websites. Most probably, those web sites do not fit to programming niche but my plan is to take screenshots of the code for each tip and post the photo of the code snippet with url of the detailed tip page on my website (every week).

    Let me know what you think about this plan?

    Thanks in advance for the comments.

    This makes sense, but this is only the beginning. To actually drive traffic you'll need to grow your social media accounts which is the tricky part.

    Can you recommend threads in this forum to help me grow my social media accounts? What is the best way to do this? As far as i see, i need to like and follow people to get attention of people.
