I May Need A Social Intervention


I am a social media junkie.  Really, it is an addiction that is getting out of control.  I do all of the following:

Twitter
Facebook
Yahoo IM
Instagram
Skype
RebelMouse
Foursquare
Pinterest

And now, as if that were not enough, I’m trying to learn how to use SnapChat.   My granddaughter isn’t able to get her video working on Skype so I am trying to learn to use SnapChat.  UGH!  That one is a challenge. I have to go online and find myself a tutorial as it just doesn’t seem real user friendly to me.

Meanwhile, I’m wondering if I might need an intervention soon, social media is really becoming addicting for me.  If my smartphone were to suddenly cease to operate I’d likely have a major melt down.  There would be certain withdraw symptoms.

Growing up with a rotary phone in our house and black and white television at first, I cannot help but find all the technology to be exciting!  But I also wonder, sometimes, when is it too much sharing and connecting?

  1. What?!! you’re not on Tumblr!!?? LOL
    Technically, I do have an account to most of these…..but I am only really active on a couple of them. Pinterest is a great resource I only go to when I need to find something anymore; Twitter and Facebook are almost impossible to keep up with, so I just use them to share my posts and others. Sometimes I will find interesting things to share. Twitter just moves way too fast to keep up with though. But since I do love photography, Instagram and Tumblr are my two faves. They are relatively simple – just view and like.
    Blogging of course will always be #1.

    I think it all depends on what else you are interested in. I don’t watch that many TV shows – so my nights are pretty much free to blog and scan my faves. I can scroll through my Instragram feed on my phone during the commercials. My kids are in school all day now too, so I can take the morning to blog, answer email, visit other blogs, etc. Save the afternoon for errands and chores.
    Hey someone people knit, paint, draw, collect stamps, scrapbook — I say everyone should get to do what interests them and brings them joy; without judgement.
