Facebook, Twitter, Linkin, and God knows what else, are…according to some…the places to see and be seen…if that’s true, I’m in hiding. I was never a fan of Facebook to start with, and now I’m suppose to have a Facebook Fanpage? Your fanpage should be linked to your twitter, linkin, and etsy accounts…or maybe it’s the other way around…damned if I know. I went to the bookstore to get a book to decipher all of this, and the book was thicker than the phonebook. Not that anybody uses a phonebook anymore.
I heard my daughter’s best friend, Ann, talking about something someone had written on her wall. She is 11 yrs old, so I thought she meant her bedroom wall…nope…she meant Facebook wall. An 11 year old is more connected to the social media world then I am. I remember thinking…many years back…that my mom was,” totally lame”, because she didn’t have a bankcard. Now I wonder if my daughter is looking at me and thinking the same.
Do not get me wrong I’m not staying up nights worrying about this. I’ll trudge along out at the periphery of the social media world, dipping my foot into the water. Frankly, I have better things to do than to spend hours a day supposedly connecting with others. I’d rather go over to their house, sit down, and chat over a cup of tea. I think conversations should be more than 140 characters, typed while standing in line at the grocery store.
God bless, Julia
