KEEP THE CONTENT YOU CONSUME POSITIVE
It’s easy to follow accounts and people who affect your mood with the things they post. Constant boring updates which either brag or moan are negatively impacting your experience with social media. Cut those people out! Even if they’re your friend, try muting or unfollowing them so you don’t have to see their updates. I don’t wanna hear what you had for breakfast or that you don’t get paid enough. Ain’t nobody got time fo dat.
KEEP THE CONTENT YOU PRODUCE POSITIVE
It’s easy to take your rants to social media but it will make people unfollow you, feel negatively about you or just simply portray a bad image of you. Try keeping your social media a place for positive influence and happy thoughts instead. Share positivity and it will be shared back with you. Nobody likes a neggy Nancy!
DON’T GET TOO PERSONAL
I like to keep all of my social media linked up to my blog so that my username is the same across all platforms (@libfemblog) but also because I don’t want my entire life on social media. There’s a certain sadness I feel for somebody who shares the details of their heartaches, arguments and life in general on their social media. It makes me think that maybe they really didn’t have anybody to go to in the first place, to support them or listen to them and instead they’ve taken it to every single person they know in a sad little Facebook update. I never wanna be that guy.
TAKE TIME AWAY
I wrote in Wednesday’s post about how great it is to take time away from social media. I like to have a break from my blog & twitter every now and again in order to give myself time to reconsider the content I want to put out, come up with new material and just focus on other things in my life. Read my Autumn Resolutions which includes taking breaks from social media.
DON’T MINDLESSLY SCROLL
I have been so bad in the past for scrolling aimlessly through social media, barely picking up on the words I’m reading and finding little to no enjoyment from doing so. I’ve seen friends come home from work and scroll through their phones for hours, ignorant of the conversations going on around them. I don’t want to be someone who sits there looking through their phone for hours on end therefore when I catch myself scrolling, I stop straight away.
DO YOU TRY TO LIVE BY THESE RULES TOO? OR HAVE YOU GOT YOUR OWN THAT I’VE MISSED OUT? LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW.
