Social Media

The internet was created for the sole purpose of creating and sharing cat videos.  That’s it.  The why Al Gore invented the internet.  It’s very strange that Al Gore has been mentioned on my blog 2 days in a row.  Ummm, WTH?  But some other people have figured out some useful things to do with the information superhighway, like e-mail and Facebook and stuff.  You can also get some really good information on the internet, and some not so good information.  I recently deleted my Facebook page because it was making me crazier than I already am.  Seeing other peoples’ lives and obsessing about comments and ‘likes.’  Bah, I’m quite obviously not ready for that yet.  But don’t let social media affect your feelings, it’s not real.  I was starting to let it affect my feelings and that’s why I had to delete it.  If you can handle it, just use it for staying in touch with people, I can’t handle that yet.

  1. “The internet was created for the sole purpose of creating and sharing cat videos.”

    Finally, someone figured it out

  2. “Its not real”, exactly why I don’t want anything to do with it. I have very limited energy and I want/need my relationships to be real. Although I guess one could argue that “blogs” aren’t exactly real either…but to me it feels genuine… Its not just a simple like and onto the next thing.

    And I LOVE that you serve up a daily dose of grumpy cat…I’ve even turned my husband onto grumpy cat cuz I’m usually reading this and laughing just before bed. We are now family in love with grumpy cat. Thank you!

  3. I’m all over the social media scene, but then again, I’m not. Twitter scrolls too fast for me to read. LinkedIn is good for my professional side. FaceBook, Myspace, google+, Goodreads, and all the rest I read in digest form or get email alerts. Even blogs are emailed in digest form unless I search for something. I rarely spend time on any site and use it mainly for promotion.

  4. I’m often tempted to delete my FB account because it is used by a lot of passive-aggressive people who cannot openly acknowledge their feelings, and by poor communicators who cannot express their feelings very well, so use someone else’s words. Plus I obsess about “likes.”

    On the other hand, FB has reconnected me with my 23 Giovannetti cousins who I’d lost touch with 30 years ago, and they are loads of fun.

    • That’s awesome, I love hearing stories like that. I don’t have any long lost relatives or anything like that, but there are a couple people from high school I’d like to reconnect with.

  5. Jim Sparks likes you. I’m not exactly sure what that means, I don’t do Facebook. I think I’ll see how many consecutive days Al Gore is mentioned on your blog. This could be a Guinness world record thing.

  6. I just started putting my style of stroke data on several sites. It’s to build the ‘Dean’ brand. I never post any personal data on my page.

    • So you don’t post about your chainsaw usage and stuff? I think the people would like to know!!

      • I don’t think my suggestions on regaining sensation by welcoming mosquito bites or purposefully bushing up against stinging nettle are ever going to be accepted. The chainsaw stuff would just prove than I am mentally off my rocker.

  7. The Dean brand. Sounds like it could be painful.
