One of the coolest things about living in a small city is that we’re big enough to have an almost big city cosmo vibe, sorta, and things like StarBucks, a multi-screen movie mega-plex, big box stores and a few festivals.
But we’re small enough to remain, well, small town intimate. Not too hickish. just enough. I like that. I like people.
But FlakeBook is ruining it for me. For instance, last week I bumped into a friend’s wife.
Someone I sorta kinda know, having met her briefly a few times, through her husband.
In the first minute of meeting her, here are the thoughts that invaded my brain:
“Her husband cheated on her ten years ago (who knew!??), she’s still pissed. She struggles with depression. Is mad at the doctors for not getting the pharmaceuticals right. Hates lasagna, vegans, doesn’t know how to ride a bike and thinks Trump is a piece of shit.”
What is it they say? Too much information? TMI
How? Well, FakeBook of course.
It baffles me why so many say so much on social media. Baffles me.
What baffles me even more is why I read the dam stuff.
Even more ‘baffling-my-marketing-brain’ conundrum is why so many business owners don’t use social media as a marketing tool for their businesses.
It’s like everyone, or most everyone, uses flakebook as their shrink.
Why not use it for better purposes? Like spreading goodwill, good messages,
and growing your business.
Shameless marketing. Why not?
