Social Media: An Introduction of Sorts

so·cial me·di·a
noun
noun: social media; plural noun: social medias

  • websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking.

And today, I’m starting a weekly series all about it! But before we get started, let me tell you what it’s not going to be about.

It won’t be a biblical argument for or against social media. (You can find those elsewhere. Probably Desiring God or another cool blog.) Neither will it be Marketing 101 because I’m terrible at that. 😛

Instead? I’ve picked five aspects of using social media that I think everyone should think through. And we’re going to think through them together. 😉

I’ll share information, what I do personally, and maybe a few good articles here and there, but this is meant to spark a conversation about how we can use social media intentionally and well. 

Here’s my list of topics…

  1. Goals— Why are you on social media?
  2. Platforms— Which one (or more) is best for you?
  3. Safeguards— How are you staying safe?
  4. Time Management— How much time and how often?
  5. Etiquette— How are you conducting yourself?

If you all ask questions, there might even be a bonus Q & A one where Google and I (mostly Google) do our best to answer them. 😀

Looking forward to exploring this topic with you all! 😉

  1. Can’t wait for this series! I’ve honestly been not liking social media as much lately, which is why I’m not really doing Instagram anymore. Goodreads is definitely my favorite social media. 🙂
