Keane, NH (PressExposure) November 11, 2011 -- Dating and relationship resource How to Get a Girl to Like You has integrated social media functions into its website. The move is an effort to update the site for today's blogging environment and engage site visitors more fully.
Site founder and lead editor, Susan Jennings, notes that the decision to integrate social media was an easy one to make. She states that most of today's top blogs and websites contain the option for users to share and contribute to the content that they're consuming. Jennings aims to make How to Get a Girl to Like You more modern by allowing users to become active participants in the site: "We receive habitual positive feedback from site visitors via email. However, the How to Get a Girl to Like You team decided that simply waiting for people to reach out to us wasn't enough. In today's blogging world, the bloggers have to engage with readers in order to be successful. Social media is extremely popular --even to the point that traditional sites such as the New York Times and CNN find themselves Tweeting often. We felt that we needed to keep up in order to stay competitive in the dating niche."
Why did Jennings and the group at How to Get a Girl to Like You decide to initially create Facebook, Twitter and Google +1 accounts? She notes that the idea came from their site's analytics data which showed that posts that contained videos got significantly more blog comments and emails than those with simply text and an image. According to Jennings, "This made us realize that the more 21st century How to Get a Girl to Like You becomes, the more we're able to attract a consistent following. With the dating and relationship niche so competitive, we need to make sure we are ahead --or at least in-line with -- the latest trends in the blogosphere.

Jennings notes that the team hopes to take time away from content development to learn more about social media. This way, they'll be adding in-demand features to How to Get a Girl to Like You as soon as users demand it --and not afterwards.
Jennings also states that she wants to make a visitor's experience at How to Get a Girl to Like You more of a conversation and less like reading an article: "We want to engage our site's visitors to help them answer questions and figure out tricky situations in the world of dating.
