Or is it just me?
I’m not quite sure what it is… I just find myself getting tired of certain aspects of the ‘wide world of social media/marketing/networking’ (whatever you like to call it).
I’m tired of getting random invites to stuff that I don’t really care about.
I’m tired of reading boring tweets about what someone ate for lunch.
I’m tired of trying to think of something to tweet about other than what I ate for lunch.
I’m tired of feeling like I *should* be doing more with my social media efforts when it comes to business building activites…. but I don’t want to go overboard and become all promo-ey.
I remember signing up for my Facebook account a couple of years ago, at which time it was all about personal relationships – connecting with old high school friends and such. It was fun to catch up with folks, see what they were up to, etc. Simple stuff.
Then the buzz became all about ‘using social media to build your business’ and it became a very different landscape. Alongside my friends I was now starting to connect with business contacts/colleagues online (which I am picky about as per my facebook friending rule)… this brought a different feel to the whole thing. Having to think twice about what to post, what to share, etc.
If I post something about my business will it turn off my friends? (most of whom could care less about what I do). If I post personal stuff is that a ‘too much information’ scenario for my biz connections? (who probably don’t want to see pictures of my kids).
Gets confusing at times… hence my tiredness.
That being said, tomorrow I will probably get over it and tweet my head off, LOL.
You? Are you loving the social media or getting tired of it as well?
