Scrubbing your social media lists
Posted by Jonathan Patrick
Here is a fun exercise for you.
Go into your “friends” lists on both Facebook and Twitter then tell me how many of the people you are connected to you truly know at a deep level. I would imagine that the percentage is higher on Facebook than it is on Twitter. What percentage of those contacts are personal and what percent are business?
I would further wager that there are people you are “connected” to on both sites that you have never met. Why “connect” with someone only to have never truly gotten to know them? I can hear the answer now…
“Well, what if they are creepy!”
Then you shouldn’t agree to connect in the first place. Oh sure you aren’t having to see them in person but every time you post a status up that creepy person is reading everything about you!
If you are willing to share every update about your life with someone then be willing to get to know them in person. Heck invite them to GoGrabLunch.
Get out from behind your computer people and get in their face!
