This was another one of those daily prompt things: Do you feel like you “get” social media, or do you just use it because that’s where all your friends and family are?
I couldn’t help think, “What do you mean by “get” is it catching, like the flu?”
What would it look like if I “caught” Facebook?
Would I keep handing people photos of good luck angels , pestering them to play games they already told me 989 times they didn’t want to play, make inflammatory political speeches and when challenged ignore all opposition?
Would I like everything by sticking my thumb up?
Would I share all my personal preferences, when no one cares, like what brand of toilet paper I use?
Would I tell everyone every mundane thing about my ordinary life such as : Went to the mall, watching dancing with the stars, just ate at Burger Bob’s and so on and so forth…
What if I “caught” Twitter?
Would the symptoms include blurting out random sh** until someone notices me,talking in only 140 or less characters, following complete strangers,getting paranoid when complete strangers won’t follow me, passing out stars whenever someone says something I like, randomly blurting out “Read my blog!”, and talking in strange symbols such as #FF@raeme67 and NCT?
So, to answer the question, I do tend to use Facebook mostly to keep up with family and of course to plug my blog.
Twitter? Well, Twitter is the most fun you can have in 140 characters. The best part for me has been meeting all the great writers and the people from different parts of the world.
Seeing what random crap has been thrown up for the day has its appeal as well, let’s face it is a comedian’s gold mine!
And of course, once again it is great for plugging the blog.
So, do you get social media? Do you pretend to get social media? Do you want to get social media?
