Happy Tuesday friends! Today brings the weekly edition of “Talk To Me Tuesday.”
This weeks topic is Social Media, I thought this was a good topic to get feedback on since I have some positives and negatives about it.
Social Media The Good and Bad
I know we all have social media in our lives, wether its facebook, twitter, instagram, or other types of social media. I can classify myself as a social media whore ( sorry, lol ) but I am on the facebook, twitter, and instagram daily, instagram I am on the most and I blow up the feed daily on there.
I love social media, I use it for my blog mostly, but on facebook I do have my personal page too that I have to connect with family out of state and friends.
Social media is great for me to connect with other bloggers, brands, and companies. I have really connected with some awesome companies on twitter and instagram as well. Social media has that positive for me, but it also can be a negative too in ways.
For instance facebook is a social media platform that I feel can be bad for some, can we talk about oversharing too much and how people think it is a diary of their life?
Yeah, some people share too much on facebook, vent way too much, and share way too much. Kind of crazy when I see some crazy updates of people talking trash on an ex or sharing a little too much about their personal life, yikes! Lol.
Twitter can be bad for this too, you get angry and you automatically tweet something out of anger and boom it is out there for all to see. You finally calm down and it is too late to take back what you wrote, it was already out there for all to see! Some people need to just calm down before they write something on facebook or tweet something as well! I see this happen on insagram as well, but more on facebook and twitter.
Think before you write something out on social media, always think before! You can’t take back what you wrote!
So social media for me is more of a positive, I have not posted a update or tweet I have regretted yet or had to erase. I know it can happen to the best person just being mad or just not thinking, but try to remember to stop before you write something and also remember that some things are better left unsaid!
Now I want your feedback…
- Do you feel social media has its positives and negatives?
- What negatives do you feel social media has? Positives?
