LinkedIn

Social Media

There have been so many forms of social media I swore I would never use. Starting a blog was top of the list, but that didn’t last long if you can tell. Next it was twitter, but sure enough you can’t have a blog without tweeting. And last, but not least, I swore I would never join LinkedIn. I didn’t want to be on an adult version of Facebook.

Everyone seems to love LinkedIn and I had to see what all the fuss was about…so I joined.

It was so easy to create a profile, and it was a lot of fun scrolling down the list of my email connections and seeing everyone’s job titles. In a glimpse I got to see how successful my collegeĀ alumniĀ have become, and it was really motivating.

As much as I try to resist social media it keeps drawing me back. But I’m making this digital promise: I will never use four square. I have no idea what it is, and I don’t intend to.
