facebookI am a chronic facebooker.  I think it’s a great social media tool to stay in touch with friends, make new ones, and learn from others if you are open to a different opinion than yours.

Opinions can’t be wrong….they are just the way someone feels but the person that posts their opinion believes it to be true.  For instance:  I believe we never landed on the moon and the Shuttle missions were mainly used to deploy military spy and defense satellites.  A lot of people then would join the thread and call me crazy, paranoid, anti-American and probably an animal hater.  It’s just my opinion….no need to dink the hater-ade (although I AM right).

Some other random thoughts on facebook; people that use a picture of their pet or an avatar freak me out.  Checking into Wal-Mart is not a huge accomplishment.  If your kid is having a birthday then it’s obligatory to post a pic of your kid with cake on his face.  When someone switches their status to “in a relationship” I always wonder how long it will last until they change it to “single.”  There is no reason to poke anyone.  If I wanted to play “Candy Crush” I would already be playing…your invite doesn’t sway me.  I’ll look past the “toes in the sand” and the “I have a drink with a lot of fruit in it” because that is just to big of a battle to fight.

I could be wrong….but it’s just my opinion.

Social media is a here to stay and it’s a necessary marketing tool for you and your business.  I’m a facebook junkie.  I always aim to engage my friends in some sort of discussion thread or entertainment element.   As a public service I offer the following that I urge all to STOP DOING ON FACEBOOK!

 1)  NO MORE PICTURES OF FOOD YOU ARE ABOUT TO EAT:  Being able to flag down a waiter, decide on an entre’, order it, then have it delivered to your table is hardly a magic trick.  Put down your iPhone, grab your fork Copperfield, and eat your freaking dinner.

2)  PUT A SHIRT ON AND GET AWAY FROM THE MIRROR:  Congratulations on shaving your chest and your twelve pack.  All that hard work in the gym has rewarded you with being alone on a Saturday night with your shirt off in front of your bathroom mirror and your cell phone in your hand.  Now go to your room, close the blinds and your door, and do what we know you need to do to yourself.

3)  STOP LOOKING LIKE A DUCK AND SMILE LIKE A NORMAL HUMAN BEING:  I’m not sure what makes the females think they are being seductive when they make this face.  It looks more like the sudden onset of bell’s palsy.  Unless you floss with a rope, open up your mouth and show me those pearly whites!.

Social Media is a great thing.  Follow me on Twitter HERE.  Be my facebook friend HERE.  That’s all for today.  I need to let everyone on Four Square know that I just walked into Home Depot!!
