The recent social media outage made one thing clear. Anything placed on a third party website isn’t in your control and could disappear in moments without advance warning.
It doesn’t matter if you are using a social media platform like Facebook or a creative network like Behance and Medium.
Granted these platforms are good to share content and reach a bigger audience.
However, they should be used as a secondary stage in addition to your own website instead of being the main platform.
Imagine directing someone to view your jobs portfolio on a third party platform and the site being down, similar to what happened with the world’s most popular social media platforms? It could cost you a job.
On the other hand, your own website is more reliable and within your control.
For these reasons, it’s important to place your bio / resume and sample works on your own website. This could be in the form of a website or blog.
Any new content should be uploaded to your website first.
Thereafter, a link to the content along with summary or the full post can be shared to other social media and creative networks to increase exposure.
