Social Networking and Crochet

By Erin Burger – 7 Comments

Every time I log on Facebook I ‘run’ to the Crochet Spot page to check out who ‘likes’ the newest posts and if anyone has posted a new photo of something they have made from a pattern on Crochet Spot.

I’ve been pleased as a plum to see a few of my patterns reproduced on Facebook! Have you shared finished projects and crochet tips/ideas on Facebook?

There are some naysayers in the world who say that social networking is the downfall of society. I think the total opposite, rather than a downfall it’s one of the greatest resources in the history of humanity! Ideas can be freely shared, people can build businesses, social existences, share stories and experiences. Crocheting has become an even more popular craft and hobby due to the popularity of crochet patterns and instructions on the internet.

Social network and crochet at the same time, become a fan of the Crochet Spot Facebook Page!

    I totally agree also! I don’t think I would have gotten so much into crochet or any of my other crafts if it hadn’t been for Facebook and other online crafting communities. I love being able to post pictures and show my friends what I’ve done. Especially to those friends I don’t get to see or talk to as often as I would like.

    Yay for Social Networking and the Internet!

    I think social networking has provided the greatest opportunity for world peace in recent decades…how much better to be friends, and friends of friends, than to communicate with nobody outside our personal realms.
    Crochet Spot is so friendly and so responsive and what a bonus to our creative desires.
    Thanks so much for sharing, Rachel
