#Twitter and #Facebook
Social media has changed our lives. I have yet to decide if it is for the better or not. Sure, I talk to people and keep in touch with ones that I probably would have lost forever. But, it has changed so much of how we communicate with people. I know there have been guys I have tried to write to that completely comes off wrong because half of how we talk is in body langauge, tone of voice, and facial expressions. For that reason, I am not a huge fan of social media. Yet, I do use it.
Facebook and I are friends sometimes. I wasn't a big fan of it at first, then it grew on me, then I decided I hated reading about people's kids being sick, then I got some new friends that I check on regualarly. However, I have not jumped into working with facebook for business reasons. I know it may help, but I just haven't wanted to do it yet.
Twitter on the other hand, well, twitter is my good friend. I started using it like most people, to follow my favorite celebrities. I have a large collection of them that I just find funny. I like to know what people are up to. I always have, my friends use to think I was weird because I would know what the guys I had crushes on were up to. Now I don't need to learn these things, it is all on twitter. It has made stalking someone so much easier to do. I now have friends I like to follow as well, and completely enjoy talking to them. I also have this lovely addition to my computer called TweetDeck, and oh my gosh, it is the best thing ever. I have all of my following grouped into lists so that I can read which one I want to read when I want to. I have my friends, famous people, etsy, and even my religion. It even comes up and tells me if someone mentions me in a tweet. It is so super nice. I feel like ever since I got that I have been able to carry on conversations better with people, and that is all that twitter is really about, talking to people via text. I love it.
So, how do you use social media like Twitter and Facebook?
Do you want to be featured on my blog with some of these questions? Go to these interview questions and fill them out, answer as many as you want or do not want to. I will more than likely edit them down anyways. Then send them to me at thevicagirl, and I will go ahead and post your interview. I will be intermixing interviews with other posts, so your interview may not appear for a while, do not get upset at this please.
