I was sifting through my Facebook newsfeed, looking at all of the things my friends have posted.
Every time I wanted to comment or share, I immediately lost interest as soon as I had to think about what I was going to say and how I was going to say it.
OVER THE YEARS...
Over the years my Facebook habits have changed - considerably!
Of course, some of that is due to becoming wiser in the ways of social media. And some of it is due to being aware of what "vibe" I am sending out.
Your Vibe - the emotions, feelings, thoughts and ideas - the way you make people feel. How their body chemistry and brain chemistry changes while interacting with you. In other words the reaction people have at the thought of you, or at the words you convey. That is your energy - your vibe.
*wiping sweat from forehead*
That was close!
I gave you just enough woo-woo stuff to enlighten you, but not enough to turn you into a hippy.
You're OK. ;-)
BUT, SERIOUSLY, IT'S IMPORTANT.
And if you're all into the concept of branding, it's a huge factor in your presence, especially your online presence.
So, somewhere along the line, I quit getting political (except for some of those great Gay Agenda/Gay Marriage spoofs. They are simply too funny not to share.)
Facebook is where I communicate with people I know and care about. Even my online friends and I share some sort of emotional bond/shared experience - that brings us to the level of caring enough to want to know how the other is doing.
WHICH BRINGS ME TO...
Where I'm at now with Facebook.
I LOVE the pictures my friends put up of their kids. I definitely keep up with those.
I like and share interesting ideas, funny memes, inspirational memes, and the big events in my life. This year has seen mostly statuses about my ankle. Just to keep people in the loop.
And sharing is done very strategically. All cat/cute animal pictures are shared with my niece who LOVES animals.
This way just about anyone else who would be interested in seeing it will see it because we are all friends with my niece.
I share superhero, comic book, rock and roll, science fiction with Ken because I know anyone who is friends with the both of us would like seeing that too.
But, of course, there are always a couple of things a week that I share specifically with the person I know it is intended for.
Like this picture, which I shared with my friend who loves to play this game. I've been trying to get him back for years.
I check my Facebook and it's like micromanaging the philosophy that I apply to my life.
If it doesn't lift me up and make me feel lighter, then it's not the way to go.
In return I have created a level of "being" for anyone who comes in contact with my page.
Which, as I mentioned, works in the real world too.
We are responsible for what we carry out there and bring into the space of others.
And now that you know better, please, it is now time to do better ;-)
