Why I Use Social Media

The other night I had a conversation with Antonia about how she uses social media outlets, and this got me thinking of what I use different social media outlets for.

So here is my list:

Texting: Immediate communication or encouragement (The majority of the time I expect a response).

Twitter: Mostly things I want people to see, but without them feeling the need to respond or comment

Facebook:
– I write messages because often times I do not have time to hold a conversation. In these messages I write my half of the conversation and hope to hear the other side of the conversation soon.
– I post things on my page because I figure that if I have a facebook I should strive to inspire people and build some community through it.

Email: Connecting with people to meet up or plan things

Tumblr: Here I post pictures, thoughts, and stuff for a few close friends to see (I don’t expect a ‘like’ or comment, but secretly always hope for one).

WordPress: To share my, and other people’s, thoughts hoping to inspire others. But honestly, its main purpose is to help me write more consistently.

What do you use Social Media for?
