For those of you that tuned in yesterday morning, you found out why I rarely schedule a draft post. I’m more than a little bit absent-minded and I forget it’s lurking. Thank you for your patience.
We’re having Techie Tuesday today, and I’ve got a fun little present for you.
Social Media is incredibly interesting to me…actually, I flat out love it. I love the interaction, the variety and the community.
Most people prefer one platform over another, and I’m going to confess right up front to a bias toward Twitter. (Facebook, as fun as it is, takes up waaaay too much time in my opinion.)
Most of my pals have a love/hate relationship with social media. Below are the ones I hear most often on both sides of the fence.
Common Social Media Dislikes:
- The updates whip by too fast.
- Nobody talks to you.
- It’s too hard to keep up.
- It’s all sales.
- It’s a waste of time.
- What does all that time actually get you?
Common Social Media Likes:
- The community is awesome.
- You can go on when you want.
- Increased blog traffic.
- Tons of information.
- It’s fun.
Zeebly’s new app, SocialMe, sifts through your Facebook updates from the beginning of time and tells you what they say about you.
I know…kinda spooky. I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to know. But curiosity won and I’m glad I did it. Since y’all are my posse, I’ll share the deets with you too.
When and What I post:
My Facebook Personality:
(The only surprise to me above is that my updates say I lean more to the introverted side.)
My Facebook Pals
And here’s where the stats started making me laugh…
["Jenny uses more emoticons than 95% of people" made me clutch my sides laughing.]
I knew I cross-posted from Twitter more than was allowed thanks to Lisa Hall-Wilson’s FAB Facebook post, but more words than the Diary of Anne Frank? That one was a bit eye-opening.
If you’d like to check out your own Social Me analysis, it took me about five minutes. Feel free to do it, then come back and tell us about your results. Or write your own post and link back here so we can all check you out that way.
