When you come across those people in life who express interest in beginning to use social media for the first time,
(You know, like the people who say, “I really need to get on the Twitter!!”),
And you want to help them jump in, just share this graphic with them.
So. What did I leave off?

HaHA! You have hit the nail on the head so to speak!
I love this! I would like to share this with others in a presentation.
Sure – feel free to share it in a presentation!
I love this! The Twitter bubble is my favorite! Haha!!! For FB you could add: various & sundry memes! And for instagram: 1,000,000 pictures of your child doing things only you think is adorable (guilty-as-charged)!
You know, I’ve been surprised by the number of single people who even like a million pictures of people’s kids. I think they’re just so much better than the alternative (like various and sundry memes) that they’ll take it!
I thought it was funny, and I don’t even use twitter or instagram…. Wanted to let you know, though, I’m making something ffrom the Nabeel’s cookbook tonight! Mmm, can’t wait :)
What did you make? And how did it turn out??
Sorry for the ridiculously late reply – my email ate me alive!
This is awesome. For the Facebook bubble, I would add “vaguely threatening chain-letter-style shares.” Like the ones that say, “Like if you hate child abuse, ignore if you think think it’s ok.”
Yes. I saw one of these today that made me cringe. And then cringe again.
How about sharing every family members’ health status for FB? I have several people who post daily, “Joey has a runny nose. :(” and “Livy has another fever.” And “the baby has ANOTHER diaper rash!” Really? Once in a while is ok but I don’t need to know every detail of your family’s medical history! :P
Need to add:
Instagram – raindrops on windows, a note you typed on your iphone notepad
Facebook – snarky ecards, shared posts of every dog that’s ever been in a pound.
I don’t know how I left ecards off. That’s my pet peeve.
And the dog pound ones….
I didn’t realize bloody flesh wounds were that common…I thought it was just the crowd I’ve somehow linked up with. Gag. I actually just scrolled (quickly) past one today. Then blocked that person.
On facebook you should add: daily updates on time spent at the gym (congrats on your 10 pushups, I saw on the couch while you were doing that); shared articles that probably weren’t read by the person sharing; awesome posts about the things students say/do (these are from me).
Ha! Your forgot hearts and smiley faces on Facebook, and those ecard greetings!
YES. I meant to put those one there and then totally forgot!
