I know, I haven’t blogged in awhile. I’ve been busy with job applications, and just life in general.
I’m here to speak to you (or write to you) today about Social Notworking. Social networking is starting to ‘not work’ for me. I’m feeling a bit ‘over it’. One of my good friends deleted her facebook account the other day and I’m almost considering doing the same thing. I still check it once a day, but rarely update my status, and if I do its through the #fb hashtag on Twitter.
I’m still using Twitter but not as much. Could just be a funk I’m in ..but I just can’t be arsed. I’m a bit poopy with my phone at the moment which probably isn’t helping. Since discovering Foursquare in January I’ve become Mayor of six places. I took over the gym, coffee shop, pub, office building, weekend coffee shop and of course, my house. But now it has stopped working and won’t let me check in. Do I bother trying to figure out the issue? Its sure to be complicated and time consuming, the phone is from Optus, but I’m using my Telstra sim. It’s a Blackberry Pearl and usually well behaved. Argh.
I did read something in the Herald Sun the other day about Gen Y abandoning Facebook. I guess this is kind of like that. Facebook definitely shits me at the moment, but I have totally different ‘tweeps’ on Twitter (compared to FB friends). I don’t know all of them personally, mostly from reading their blogs. Most are based in Melbourne. My Facebook friends are all people I know, I’m pretty sure I’ve met all of them at least once.
But I still love blogging, and can’t see myself giving it up anytime soon. I just wish I blogged more, then maybe I’d get recognised on the street too! I need to make that a priority. Blogging more, not getting recognised in the street…
I do know one thing that would get me back in the social networking game – an iphone. I don’t think I’m usually a materialistic person, usually I buy things based on them being something I need. Which is definitely NOT an iphone. But its top of the list of things I want. Do want an iphone. Why? I have no idea! Brilliant marketing I guess. Call me slow, but I was excited to find the touch pad on my Macbook zooms in and out just like an iphone does.
Welp, this post reeks of Gen Y doesn’t it? Pe-ew!
