Aren’t You The Least Bit Curious About Social Media?
Wouldn’t you like to learn how it all started out? Wouldn’t your mind be curious about the how and why social media have taken the world by storm? Heck, even Presidents, Kings and Queens are in on the act. Some of them are pretty famous, as famous as your top movie stars, so they didn’t need to do much to get real Instagram followers. But as for the rest of us, you and I have to work pretty darn hard to get anyone – as in, hello, is there anyone out there – to like, like us and follow us wherever we go.
I must admit, I’m not exactly the most popular guy in town. In fact, on the social side – as in cool friends and just hanging out and having fun – I’ve toned things down quite a bit. I’m not exactly what you would call a social butterfly. I rarely spend time on my social media networks, and I have a few. So, there you go – and really, I can’t blame you-you’re all thinking, just great, what a great advertisement for social media and all the great sites out there.
Where’s the lesson to get real Instagram followers to, like, really like you? I mean, like genuine folks, genuine folks like you, is what I’m saying. The thing is, I burned my tongue one too many times. Got myself in hot water over the big opinions I used to carry on my shoulders. And now, quite rightly, some of you are saying, but yaah, that’s right, that’s what social media is for. To air your views. Air your dirty laundry?
Okay. Anyway, what you do with your favourite social media platform is entirely your business. But I do think it’s a great idea to be nice every once in a while. I learned my lesson on this one. Say the wrong thing to the wrong crowd even though you know that deep down in your solid heart you believe you were right, and see how things start to backfire. Pretty quickly, I might add. Watch that house of cards come crumbling down.
The thing about being careful with your social media feeds is that there are far too many gossipy busybodies out there with nothing better to do with their time than look up stuff about people. And they always seem to want the juicy and bad stuff. Just think. This could kill a business. It’s happened before and it will probably happen again. Yaah, the big shots, the world’s most popular, do get away with a lot.
But you and me? Well, we’re just small fish in the pond. Because we all want to do well in life and get noticed, we’ll soon be swimming in the sea. And that’s where things get really choppy. You’ve got to duck the big waves and then you’ve got to look out for the sharks. There’s plenty of them, so watch out, guys.
