    For me, I find twitter great for finding and interacting with other composers, but facebook has some of the most interesting conversations going on.

    Stage32 is one of my new favourites – hard to connect on a personal level with anyone there, but well worth it if you can – you can form some good relationships if you really try.

    What about you guys?

    Hi Emmett,

    I’ve created new Twitter account for me as composer, I have just few followers, but I agree, that Twitter is great platform to interact with other composers. I much appreciate Facebook as there are lot of composers and great discussion groups. I’m almost all the day reading Scorecast London group posts. Lot of useful info there. And I didn’t know about Stage32 before, so thank you for letting me know about it :)

      Hi Franto, apologies for the delay. Yup agree, the Scorecast facebook group is great. Stage32 is a strange one – I like it and dislike it in ways, but I’ve got work from it before, so can’t argue I guess!
