I really wasn’t on a rant in my last post, but this one comes pretty close to being one.
This is about all the social networking doolollies circulating all over the world.
I do have a Facebook account but I’ll go on record right here that I don’t really like it. I just keep it so I can stay connected to some friends from high school and a few family members and other friends. I rarely read the timelines, don’t play the games, don’t do the calender, don’t do the birthday club…shall I say more about it? Please don’t look me up or send me an invite. I hardly ever even read the notes that appear in my inbox and I automatically delete the ones that say I’ve got a friend request without even looking to see who it’s from. I must be an odd statistic in Facebook because I have way less than 100 friends and I like it that way.
But, you know…we all have to decide what we enjoy and what we don’t and what we have time for and what we don’t. It’s a see-saw everyday trying to balance our lives. Some things that used to fit well, just don’t anymore…and I’m not talking about the size of my jeans.
One of my pet peeves is this thing called “Linkd in”. An acquaintance recently sent me an invite to connect with her there. Not only did I get an invite but I got a reminder that I had not responded to her invitation.
Want to send me into orbit? Just send me an invite to join your professional network…..NO…please don’t. I don’t want to be in a network. I don’t have time. I don’t want to make time.
I don’t want to Tweet. I don’t want to Skype. I don’t want to. Just plain don’t want to.
OK….I feel better now.
