This is where I share where I have gone for social media connections. I have reestablished the LinkedIn account that I had but never used. It appears to have made some changes. While it is a professional network for business, it seems to embraced the model and design used by Facebook. It is a successful model – I have lost hours mindlessly scrolling or playing games or chatting, looking at pictures…yeah.
I took the links that I used for the LinkedIn assignment and posted them to my Delicious web site. While many use all social media that is out there, some I have never heard of – Is it wrong if I find some of them useless? I don’t mean in the general sense, but that I would never use. I do enjoy a good app, but sometimes they can be overwhelming and underwhelming all at the same time.
I do plan on being better at using all of the options available to me. I am told I should have an Instagram. Not yet. There is a business venture to promote, as I have been recently recruited for the great Pampered Chef free product journey, so I am hoping to use Social Media to my advantage by making money and never having to do a home show. So far I have gladly paid, but I am told there are great rewards….
Other than my daily trek to Facebook, which for some reason causes mindless scrolling, my social media contact is limited. I have tried to be more active on Twitter, but find its difficult to remember to go on everyday. Even when I have emails sent reminding me I neglect to check that account. I do believe that in order to be successful in any of the social media forums you need to be active and engaged. There is my issue. When I remember to log in I can muster up a decent job of posting, but once I log out it might be a day, week, a month…or two before I remember to log in again.
