In these days of Social Media, many of us live increasingly in the public eye.
What I write here can be viewed by anyone. What I say on Twitter can be viewed by anyone. What I update on my Facebook status can be viewed by lots of people (not anyone – I have designated my FB friends and set my privacy settings, but 300 people isn’t really a private place, is it? And I don’t bother with the selective status updates, although I could.)
I love Social Media. I’ve connected and learned more through these tools than I ever dreamed of…
But…it has its drawbacks.
If you’re big into Social Media you may have started feeling Social Media Fatigue (it’s a new syndrome I’ve invented, shortname: SoMeFat).
In December, I fell victim to SoMeFat. I wrote once in my blog – an all time low. I fell WAY back on Twitter.
Why? Work obligations, Christmas, who knows what else. I was just tired of it all. Social Media Fatigue set in. Occasionally -- mostly out of guilt (?!) -- I would attempt to stretch my Twitter legs. But they were mostly lame attempts.
Do you ever get SoMeFat? Aside from switching all devices to OFF, how do you respond to SoMeFat?
