Streamline Supplemental 2/5/18

I’ve Lost my Social Media Mojo

I may start to play around with how I do this. Social media doesn’t seem to be doing anything at all for my blog. I get some views from it but ever since G+ collapsed I’ve been in the void as far as social media is concerned. These sure are not like the good old days of having 5,000+ followers on my profile and 27,000+ followers via Collections. I can’t make up any ground on Twitter because I’m fairly sure that you need to either be a celebrity or only talk politics 24/7/365. Facebook, as stated before, is mostly IRL friends and family so I don’t really have much in common with them. G+ currently has some funky algorithm glitch where the stream never really updates. So I’m not even sure how many people are seeing a new post there. So yeah… I’m not sure if it is even worth the time to go post up my blog entries in any of them now.

Maybe it’s for the best. I’m worn out on social media as it is. This blog is just becoming more of a way to exorcise the daily thoughts instead of just turning them over and over again in my head and continuously thinking about them. More of a journal blog to no one in particle. I’d be lying though if I said that I didn’t miss those high engagement G+ days. Those were some good times. Lots of conversations, engagement, and thoughts exchanged.

Everyone has a soapbox now. Why share a news story even? What comes from that? The conversation now is generally snark or a 50/50 split of people in agreement or people that disagree. Then I have to ask myself, why should anyone listen to what I say? Who am I, that my words even matter in the least to any discussion? Sadly they don’t… ergo the void that is. But really, my words shouldn’t matter. They are only words from my perspective. My opinions. My theories. I use logic and reason to come about my thinking but most people out there… don’t. Most people use feelings to come to a decision on everything. So right away, any words of logic and reason are factored out.

I don’t know what the answer is, nor do I know the goal either. I don’t even know who the audience is supposed to be anymore??? On G+ it used to be circles of “like-minded” individuals but that entire dynamic is missing from all of the social platforms now, including G+. I guess the answer is a resounding: I DO NOT KNOW!!! If so… Then really? What’s the point of social media???

That’s the Supplemental… If anyone reading this has any answers, feel free to comment.
