With my job running escort agencies requiring me to be involved in, manage or design marketing through every promotional channel you can imagine, I spend a lot of time either on or thinking about social media. And, to be honest, I am bored with it and it pisses me off. But I know that there are only two sets of responses to social media. Love and hate. For people who engage in it, that is there are lots of very successful, sensible and happy people who have as little to do with social media as possible. And that includes, interestingly the senior management teams and programmers at most of the major technology companies. Hmmm…interesting.
So I did a little research and this is what I found. According to research here are the ways to get happy with Social Media, whether you are a civilian living what I am told is a “normal” life, a hobbyist who hires escorts as often as possible, a marketer or a professional escort girl. And incidentally, what is this normal of which people speak? It sounds so dull.
Apparently according to research just being a heavy user of social media, like Facebook, doesn’t mean you’re likely more vulnerable to depression. I found that hard to believe personally, but that is just my prejudices at play. Certainly for me, spending hours every day on the various social media accounts that my business operates is a loathsome experience. And not just because of all the dick pics that we get bombarded with even on supposedly non adult media such as Instagram. Even though much of the process of posting is done by other people, I can not understand how people find social media fulfilling. And I say that even as someone whose businesses have a total of four hundred thousand followers across all platforms.
Perhaps my view is prejudiced by the fact that I spend so long looking at social media as a business tool for winning clients and sourcing suppliers or for SEO purposes that the idea of sitting down on the sofa and looking at Facebook or Twitter fills me with an existential dread. Though I do still like looking at clothes on Pinterest because I do not use it for business. But cat videos still get me though. I am human after all!
