I began to notice too many cats on my Facebook feed.
Some years ago, I got rid of many cat cards I had received over the years, scanning the images and only keeping the babyist of vintage cards.
I’m allergic to cats and am not really a cat person unless the cat is huge and acts like a dog.
But not a pitbull.
Don’t get me (or my dad) started. We had one that we began to raise kindly; it bit us kids. The End.
No matter how many “hides” of cake recipes and pitbulls I do, the list continues.
There isn’t a “no cats” button on FB yet.
“Dear God, how did I get here?”
By “liking” 1 cat other than Miss Grumpycat?
Facebook knows I have a weakness for mini goats and mini horses in sweaters…yet, where are all the new adorable videos of them?…Alas….
I have unfollowed sites like “Go Animals” and “The Dodo”, hoping the change in feed will be picked up by the automatrons at FB.
I also have suspended my Instagram account and got rid of Snapchat when advertisers got a hold of it and strangled the fun out of it.
“What about all your Instagram photos?!”
There’s an app for that called InstaSaver and you will need a laptop to get all your photos off Instagram but it works.
“Don’t you need all that Social Media for promoting Suzewannabe.com?!”
If it was a business, yes. But it’s a hobby and I gain followers by word of mouth and I’m fine with that. It doesn’t matter how many readers I have, it matters if what I write provides someone with a laugh, an idea, or some encouragement.
I got rid of LinkedIn too since no one volunteered in the last two years to ghostwrite my memoirs….
Really just 1 account on Facebook to check a few things and ideas is fine. I was becoming a little over saturated.
What about you?
Are you over-saturated with Social Media?
What have you done about it?
One thought on “Social Media: Just Stop with the cakes, cats and pitbulls”
I’ve got a basic solution: no Social account and I am already saturated by post mail and mails 😉.
Excellent article. I like 😉
