When I was in middle school, I distinctly remember writing a poem about my mother. I titled it “Social Butterfly.”
It went something along the lines of:
Flying high up in the sky
Making her presence known, to all who stand by
Beyond those three lines, I can’t say I remember much else. However, I do know that my social presence is lacking, whether it be in where I am or what I’m posting on social media.
My Facebook feed is semi-populated; however, it’s full of articles I’ve written. Read what I write here!
Instagram-I’ve posted three times in the last four months.
Twitter-The last thing I remember tweeting was for my job when I was covering an event.
But, if there is one piece of life advice I know about in today’s technological focused world: I need to have a social presence, a strongish social presence that is well represented. So, in order to help up my social presence, I have come up with a plan:
- Take 10-20 minutes a week to think about what social interests I believe my friends/followers should be aware of.
- Find three stimulating articles or human interest pieces to analyze and share.
- Post them with at least 1-2 days between, as to not become too obnoxious.
In time, I feel like this will help me post more on Facebook and Twitter, as well as help my friends/followers broaden their own minds and hopefully think outside of their own boxes.
Instagram, that is another story. I think I need help in that department, coming up with a solid plan. Accepting suggestions!
What do you do to be more social on social media?
