I was wondering if anyone in the group has found Facebook or Twitter to be a help in selling books or help get out the word that you are an author?

My friend who writes non-fiction has found she sells books to folk on Facebook, but that may be because they have a mutual interest in the subject matter.
I write fiction and get sales from meeting people. I won't go onto Facebook as I don't want to chat at a distance and I don't want loads of photos of people I don't really know.
Librarything takes up enough writing and editing time as it is. Facebook would be even more time consuming.
Reactions to the news that you are an author vary so much - family dismiss it, friends are curious, but not enough to buy a book, strangers act as if you are famous , until they find you are not and librarians will accept books, if they are donated!
