Friendship Friday - Social Media
Thanks to Joy for featuring both Heather and I last week. This week's Friendship Friday topic is:
I have to say that I am not as intelligent when it comes to discussions of social media. I am a Facebook user and I do have a Twitter account but I do not use them as tools per se. Heather, my lovely bride, at www.actingbalanced.com uses social media extensively. She uses it to promote her blog and interact with a great number of people to a pretty good effect.
I enjoy Facebook mostly to keep up with the going ons of friends living far away and former students. I will admit to playing Jeopardy, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and other quiz show games on it too. I have not yet really figured out a good use for Twitter. I have been encouraged to start a LinkedIn account but I already spend too much time on the computer. I still do not know what exactly Pintrest is and I have photo software so I do not use Instagram. Further, most of the time I do not want to be found, so FourSquare is not my thing either.In summary, I guess I am just not 'friend' material. It is hard to 'like' most social media sites.
