A common response to all the social media options out there is feeling overwhelmed. I think people start feeling like they “should” be using all of these new tools, and the rate at which the perceived to-do list lengthens is a little alarming.
So far I haven’t been overwhelmed at the huge variety of options out there. Don’t get me wrong – I do indeed get stressed when I see the tasks before me growing exponentially. It’s just that I don’t see social media options as a to-do list at all.
I see the options more as a bowl of fruit:
- There are lots of different, enticing choices that I can mix, match, taste, or avoid as I see fit.
- It’s right there, just hanging out and waiting for me to partake.
- It’s yummy and healthy. Why not try some?
Do you see social media as a bowl of fruit? Do the options stress you out? How can we reduce social media’s overwhelming-factor?
