Ok, I’ve played the social media novice/doofus card long enough. Granted, my presence is basically invisible and elementary in nature, but I see how the ‘game’ is played and what it takes to get in. The question is, am I ready to take it to the next level or do I need to fly under the radar for a while longer?
Here’s the premise of my post; I have chosen to jump in with the marketing/public relations/communications crowd because there is a wealth of content that is applicable to my payin’ gig which is outside sales. This keeps me coming back and gives my social media efforts focus.
Because of this, I have attracted a decent number of followers who have similar interests. I am nowhere close to being a twitter snob (look at my FB page, who are all these people), but I am at the point I will check you out and there have been excellent posts from Brankica @LiveUrLove and Amber Avines @Wordsonewrites that provide a nice guide for me to qualify who I let in the house.
I’m looking for quality and (real) people who actually want to engage with me.
Here’s the big question; why are you going to take the time to follow me but not reply when I comment on your posts or to DM’s? I don’t understand; I mean, what is the point? Obviously you followed me for a reason, but you don’t really know me so I can’t imagine I would have already offended you.
I see you out there yucking it up with everyone else. Is it because I am not an ‘A’ lister and you don’t have time for me; not ‘important’ enough? I tried to support you and RT your posts thinking this is the proper thing to do developing a network and still nothing. Hello, I’m standing right here…………..
Well excuse me; and Erika @RedheadWriting would say ‘go ahead and just bitch slap me and make me put my big boy pants on’. I just don’t get it………….
Oh well, I try to keep an open mind and certainly live and learn as I travel through the world of social media. Maybe these people wouldn’t be talking to me in real life either; or maybe they like to hide behind the facade of anonymity in blogs, posts, etc and are not really ‘relationship’ people.
I guess the easy thing to do is not follow back; I’m just curious why you stopped by my house in the first place…………….
Another life mystery, I guess I will figure it out one day. Maybe when I figure this out I will found out who really built the pyramids and find out we are all descendents of aliens anyway.
