OMG A woman after my own heart! I recently blogged (or lamented on my blog, which has a readership of zero) about this very thing. It's the way of the world today, isn't it? Unfortunately, I'm still struggling to come up with anything pithy, interesting, or worthy to post on my social media subscriptions.
It's strange. Plop me in the middle of a cocktail party, and I can talk for hours. Put me in front of Facebook, and I have nothing to say. Twitter seems easier because it's more about sharing information, but since I've only tweeted 11 times, I wouldn't say I've totally embraced it yet!What's your blog?
I'm it's like any other tool....once you start using it regularly, it becomes second nature. I haven't really jumped in yet, but hopefully, like you're daughter, it'll only take a week for me to really get into it.
Great post! It's funny my daughter and I had a conversation much like your post a few days ago My daughter just got hired to do an internship as a social media specialist at a PR firm. The funny thing is, she was much like you, not all that much into social media! She's now managing the Facebook and Twitter pages for the businesses that her firm represents. Within her first week of work she's done a total revamping of her own social media sites and has scheduled time each day to create some sort of activity on her Facebook, LinkedIn Word Press, Blogger and Twitter accounts. Even if it's just the posting of an interesting article to generate discussion, or commenting on the posts of others, having activity each day looks good. Social media sites have in some ways become an extension of the resume and portfolio and really help potential employers or clients get to know you.
