Bring me your social media circles
I hit this briefly on a recent post, but it's worth going deeper. Rather than join the fray and argue my point, I'm going to make a statement.
I hereby promise to try out each and every social media application that one of my listeners/readers is using, upon request. I may not stick with it, but I'll join, make a profile and try it out.
Why am I doing this? Because I understand that I do not and cannot control *all* of the conversation. Sure, I could draw a line in the sand and tell you which methods of communication I prefer. But honestly, that's bullshit. It's your intraweb. You get to pick where you want the conversation to take place. If you send me an email, you probably expect me to email you back -- not call you on the phone. Understood. And welcomed, actually.
So the ball is in your court. How do you want to communicate with me? While I can't promise to respond super quickly, most of these services have a notification system in place, so it should not take me long. And who know? Maybe you'll help me discover something that somehow enriches my life and communication style.
Bring it on!
Note: this picture is not me right now. I took it last week before I moved in a little coffee shop in the town I used to live in. You don't want to see me right now. House is a disaster (just moved), I'm half nekkid and rather pissed at a home warranty company. Three things make it a not pretty picture.
