Social Media

I have very ambivalent feelings about social media and networking that way. I've had a Facebook page for a couple of years that I've taken down and put up again...twice. When I talked with my daughter-in-law via Skype the other evening, she mentioned that my 17 year old grandson has a Facebook page. So, I've taken the plunge and again activated my page. I figure that may be the only way grandma will be able to be in contact with her social media-conscious grandson! An added plus is that I can link each blog post to my 'wall.' I guess avoiding social media is impossible unless I want to be considered an old fossil! So, friend me!

  1. I share your reluctance regarding Facebook and other social media. However, like you, I'm trying to avoid being an old fuddy duddy. That said, I often read some Facebook posts, put out there for all the world to see (not just "friends") and I say to myself, "Why do I want/need to read this?"

  2. I'm on Twitter and LinkedIn but I loathe Facebook. The problem is that if you want your blog to have a wider readership than just a handful you have to get to grips with social media. I'm starting to feel I'm too old for this!
