Good Day Ladies...it's hump day!!
Baby Pancakes is napping and so i thought i would have some fun on blogger.
Don't worry...i did the laundry last night :-)
I was never one to be
obsessed overly consumed with Social Media.
And the question of whether the consumption of social media
is good for you or not is not the topic of this blog post.
Rather the question is, which social media do i understand and enjoy using???!
I never got into Facebook like most people...
i have an account because i wanted to reconnect
with some high school friends and once i did...
the allure of Facebook was gone.
I never understood Facebook like most people did....
and i am thinking of deleting my account because
i believe they are selling my information to companies
because i have received mail from companies i am not affiliated with.
I never had a space on Myspace....i never really understood that one either.
And wasn't Myspace only for musicians??
Pinterest is another obsession but i hardly ever go on
unless it's to find some cute picture to go with my blog post.
(all the pictures in this blog post are from Pinterest)
There are tons of stuff on there and honestly
my attention span most times cannot take everything in...it's too much.
So needless to say...i am not much of a Pinterested person (if i can use the word that way).
Tumblr...i always thought was for cool, artistic and interesting people like my nephew.
I also don't get Tumblr and don't have an account on there.
And the #notes thing throws me off...im used to #comments!
Instagram...that came out of nowhere and has
definitely taken over the world of photo sharing...
although instagraming is fun
( i do have an account although only my cool, artistic and interesting nephew has access to it)
i am too afraid to share too many personal pictures for fear
that others could use it inappropriately.
But i do enjoy instagraming my pictures even if only one other person will see it!
And then there is Twitter
...the fact that twitter is supposed to challenge us to share very little things about ourselves
(in 140 characters) has definitely taken on a life of its own.
No one actually shares what they have to share with JUST 140characters...
because there are now more ways to share....with photo,
link to an article and so much more that i don't understand.
And of course there are so much more social media outlets out there that i probably don't know...
and will never know because i am far from being cool, artistic and interesting
(all in one combination anyway...i can be all those adjectives separately)
This post really is to speak to all the social media
consumption out there and how i don't understand or get most of them.
Although i must say i do have a tiny crush on Twitter right now.
I am spending more time on there and it's fun...
Because all my friends from blogland are on there too!!!
And also it's fun because of live tweeting during the debates.
I am loving twitter right now...
Although i don't understand what RT means yet in Twitter language...
I am consuming this type of social media...
And it's actually one social media i am open to learning to better understand.
Fellow readers please entitle me....
what does RT in twitter speak mean???
Question of the Day:
What social media are you consuming on a daily basis?
