Social Media: Social
I’ve been asked why I post what I do to social media. It’s simple—to be social. The value is to operationalize the term “social.” It’s what you chose to present to the world. I have no agenda, or master plan—I just enjoy people.
It’s encouraging to know people who are connected through social media. I always try to meet them in person if possible. You’d be surprised how amazing some of them can be on the other side of the computer’s screen.
Talk about amazing – last week while at the hospital, so many folks knew Max from Facebook. It’s a blessing to see their faces light up and kind words accompany friendly gestures.
As a dad, it’s wonderful to see your son touch lives, even without an ability to verbalize his thoughts. That’s the true aspect of social media – being able to convey your message. Max communicates love and kindness through his full-face smiles and double thumbs up poses.
What message do you convey – virtually or in person? It’s your message to manage-make it count.
Unfortunately my message, in person and related to work, has only gotten more cynical over the last 15 years. Ignorance is bliss. Sadly, that affects everything else. I have to fix that.
