Even More Reasons to Hate Social Media | True Sci-Fi Crime
May 9, 2022
Social media comments are important for a variety of reasons. They can help businesses understand what their customers want and how they can improve their products or services. Additionally, social media comments can help spread word-of-mouth marketing for a business. Finally, negative comments can be used as an opportunity to improve customer service. But are they important for authors? Lauren Hough's Lambda Literary Award nomination was rescinded after social media comments called her out for allegedly plagiarizing parts of her novel. The incident highlights the importance of social media comments in the literary world. Science fiction and crime fiction are often lumped together, but they are actually quite different. Science fiction is usually set in the future and deals with themes of science and technology, while crime fiction is set in the present or past and deals with themes of crime and justice. However, there are some similarities between the two genres, such as their focus on suspense and plot twists. If you're a fan of crime fiction, you might want to give science fiction a try. ### - - -
