How We Feel (Sometimes) About Social Media


















There are times when I love it and times when I loathe it, but social media is probably here to stay. Sometimes I long for the good old days when we talked to people face to face or called them on the phone. Now it seems most of my news comes to me with zero personal interaction. Of course, depending upon who brings the message, (insert the name of your least favorite person here) that might be a good thing.

So do you FaceBook or Tweet?
 
I borrowed the above picture from a website called Daily HaHa. Check it out for a giggle or two.

Yes. It is a necessary evil. Made a big difference in my sales! Sigh! But I too get tired of the...didn't you read that on my Facebook??? And knowing which of my friends do and don't... Oy!

Sioux said...

I do neither. That makes me a very, very, very bad person. ;)

Mommy has to do enough Facebook for work. She considers "Facebook" as "work." She "Blogs" for fun.

LOL That's a riot! And so true! I appreciate that social media connects us with people we otherwise might miss out on, but I regret the amount of time it takes to participate.

I use social media mostly for book promo. Still interact by phone, personal email, even handwritten notes! Had gotten off FB but decided to give it another try--and in the last two days have opened my timeline to two pictures (use your imagination) which didn't do a thing for me, unless you want to count being mildly offended as doing something! So--it's both a bane and a blessing. That's why I enjoy Critter Alley--all the cute animal pics. Those lift my spirits!

Fireblossom said...

Neither, and i only just finally got a simple cell phone. I blog, and that's it.

Sherry said...

I agree! I check into FB occasionally but find Twitter totally boring.

I much prefer blogs, to the craziness of Facebook, but I do check it every now and again and post rarely.

It's fun to check in with Facebook every now and then, but I could never be one of those people who posts every hour. And anything that has the word "twit" in it scares me even more.

Susie-Belle Schnauzer said...

We facebook with real friends we know and meet in real life, keep it small & simple. We tweet, but a bit reluctantly, here and there. Prefer the blog but as you say its all here to stay.

I am on every social media possible! But I know what you mean...this love-hate relationship can be pretty tiring
