Today, there are more than 800 million active users of the social network known as Facebook. That's closing in on three times the population of the U.S. Twitter has about 300 million active users.

As I wrote in a previous post, I will be attending PantheaCon once again this year – my fifth time! It’s always a great experience, and I’m looking forward to seeing a ton of authors as well as meeting some new ones and looking for future prospects.
