The personal side of social media

2/07/2013 09:30:00 AM
It's no secret that social media has served to further encourage our friends and associates who are already prone to oversharing. They now share even more (is it possible) on a constant basis through facebook, twitter, vine, instagram and more.

You know these people.

(And I realize this is coming from a blogger who over-shares on a regular basis.)

I rationalize it like this, though:

I have a blog. I don't put my business in your face, you actually have to choose to read about my business. (And I thank you for doing so!) I don't tell you my every emotion, anger trigger and favorite meal pic on facebook - I do it on my blog. :)

That said, I'm on skype all day long to chat with with work associates. Skype is amazing when you work internationally.

That said, a contemporary of mine recently learned that Skype has a sort of "status update" feature.

I've blocked out his name and merely left his first initial:


So now I know that my co-worker has colitis.

"Things I didn't need to know."

"Non-appropriate status updates."

"Don't talk about your bodily functions on skype."

I could go on and on.

    I rationalize my over sharing,too. A blog is SO different. . . right? Or, at least that's what I tell myself. :)
