Social Media Consumption

Reflections

After doing this exercise I’ve realized how habitual checking my IG and FB feed has become. Its just mindless, like a zombie. I don’t want to be a screen zombie.

Thursday

Morning

My social media usage usually starts pretty early in the morning, while I am feeding the baby (it keeps me awake).
*Facebook: usually absolutely nothing going on. Why am I even checking?
*Check the Instagram, need to unfollow some companies that post way too much, need to shop for some baby stuff
*Google +: One of my classes is heavily relying on Google+ for posting. Checked it and made comments on people’s posts.

Afternoon

*Facebook: post to a breast feeding group that I am part of about why my baby might be spitting up so much. I then post to a body image support group about what is going on tonight.

*Facebook: I see this Meme, shared it on FB because I love everything Justin Timberlake.

Evening
*Google +: Did some more posting and set up circles for the class and my team I am leading.
*Youtube: I was able to watch my husband’s band play a live webcast show from my own home!!

His band starts at 1:02

*Pinterest: Made a pinterest board to start gathering links for my other class, for which we’ll be writing an ebook together.
*Instagram: Before I went to bed I checked my IG one more time and saw that one of my favorite Baby brands randomly followed me!! Burts Bees Baby makes some pretty stinking cute clothes and products that I adore. I even screen capped it out of delight.

Friday

Morning

*Facebook and Instagram – the usual morning check, its out of habit really

Lunch

*Posted about my new hair color on IG

Afternoon

*Twitter: I use twitter as a place to make comments that would probably make people mad on Facebook. Or just a place i can post where arguments won’t happen, because none of my friends use twitter. Observere
