People Are Not Having Fun With Social Media Anymore

August 22, 2010

Bummed Out

I am pretty bummed today. It seems that people are trying to get more out of social media then a fun tool to interact with. It seems like they are putting all of their eggs in a basket without learning to actually weave a solid basket, causing all of their eggs to fall out.

What I mean here is that like many others, I do use Twitter, Buzz and other social networks as a way to promote my business, which is actually in it’s simplest form, me helping others. But other people who shall remain nameless take it as a means to an end, and that if it doesn’t work 100% all of the time so that they can just shout and hope for a response they throw a fit. This is what bothers me. Not because something wasn’t working for them (I do feel bad about that) but because they aren’t relaxing and having fun. If something is not working, do not whine and complain saying that it is a waste of time, look for a way to fix it. Too many people in this world take things for granted and then get upset. If we just relaxed and tried to fix our own problems or asked for help then things would be a lot less stressful.
