Social Media Thoughts and Merry Christmas!
Sisterhood of the Traveling Blog’s question for this month was:
How about social media confessions? Do you twitter, FB, etc besides blogging? Why or why not?
I should admit first thing that I’m not a social person. In fact, I’m a borderline hermit. So social networking does not come easily to me.
I didn’t join Facebook because their insistence on sharing all our information horrifies me. Admittedly, we can opt out – with some difficulty, I’m told – but they’ve overridden that setting in the past. I simply don’t trust Facebook.
Tweeting? I’m amazed anyone has the time to follow in Twitter. I certainly don’t have the patience to read reams of everyday chatter. If I want that, I’ll go visit my mom. (Hi, Mom!) (Did I mention I’m a hermit?)
Blogging. Le sigh. I usually forget to blog. I feel I don’t often have anything interesting to say. I do read my friends’ blogs, though it don’t comment as often as I should. And sometimes when I try, Blogger acts up.
More sighs. ;-)
How about you? Do you find the time to Tweet? Do you trust Facebook?
