Facebook, Google+. Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, About.me…
Good grief! It all just gets to be such a pain in the ass to have to deal with all of the social media bullshit sites!
Log into Facebook and I am bombarded with post after post of political or religious articles telling me what is wrong with America, what is wrong with human beings, challenging me (or daring me!) to put some view on my timeline that I may or may not agree with. All I want from Facebook is to be able to log in and see what friends and family that I don’t get to see on a daily basis are doing with their lives. And it looks as if most of them are spending way too much of it posting bullshit from some other sites.
I log into Twitter and I get massive amounts of sponsored tweets that I have to wade through before I can see what people I am actually following have posted. And some of those posts are also of a political/religious website origin.
So I have decided I am no longer going to log into any of these social media companies that I have accounts for, because my own website will post to them for me.
Now, instead of having to log into each separate site, I log into my own website, post something, and all my friends and followers can get the update or the link back to this site. They can leave comments on my site, because I won’t be reading them on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or any other useless social media platform.
Better yet, if they know me well enough to have my cell phone number, they can call me or text me.
Otherwise, I am not going to see what they are posting.
