Social Media- a vortex! 

This week seems to have been swallowed up by social media, never before have I felt like such a technophobe! 

Within a fortnight I’ve: 

  • Set up a Twitter page
  • Set up a Facebook page 
  • Written blogs 
  • Reviewed my instagram 

Yesterday it dawned on me when I share blogs, it’s completely blocking up my own Facebook, that before now I didn’t actually use as often. Also on public pages, my own name is on it, which concerns me! 

Trying to keep up to date with all 4 social medias is difficult, this is definitely a first world problem, and I’ve rolled my eyes at myself several times! 

I began with Instagram and many people on there I chatted to regularly, I felt neglectful that I hadn’t liked their pictures. Had no idea what they were up to. I felt ridiculously guilty. I didn’t reply to comments, I didn’t follow anyone back, as I was concentrating on my blog.
As I have only just begun on Twitter, I don’t really know anyone, but I want it to grow! I feel self centered by saying that! But I don’t know what all the ❤’s are for etc…

My Facebook page has been by far the worst to navigate, I have absolutely no idea what I’m actually doing , and I’m really just hoping for the best. I’ve invited some friends, then it dawned on me.. I don’t want some people to read my blog…. I don’t want them to see what I write… They’ll judge me. But that’s the peril of having both a public Instagram and blog. I’m hoping some Will be pleased with who I am.

So, to help me to cope with all my social medias (I’m acutely aware I’m moaning) I’ve devised some rules for myself: 

  1. Social media other than Instagram must only take up one hour (twenty minutes each) 
  2. Blog posts are only once or twice a week and try to be focused on weight loss as much as possible
  3. Photos must be from a written source on social media or my own 
  4. Follows, likes and shares are unimportant, connecting is. 

    How do you guys manage all of your social media? 

    Love Sooz x

    1. You might check out HootSuite. I have not used them yet, but everyone tells me you can manage your social media there. Not sure if it is free or not.

    2. Use what you need, don’t feel you have to have anything else.

      I’ve always found social media to be a vortex, I avoid Facebook and I blog and tweet, if I had something to manage it all in one place I might use more, but like you I don’t want everyone knowing everything about me. The question is, why do we use it, is it working and do we need it? Sometimes I wonder… Lol ☺
