Social Media Rebel Without a Cause [pt. 1]

Are you a social media rebel without a cause?

The idea for this post came to me in the middle of the night. I woke up and didn’t drift right back to sleep and “Rebel Without a Cause” appeared in my head. I added social media in front of it and here we are.

There are so many different social media outlets in the online market today. 

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • LinkedIn
  • YouTube
  • Blogs – Tumblr, WordPress, Blogspot
  • MySpace
  • Pinterest
  • Google +
  • Live Journal

With so many choices how do you know which one to choose. I personally am not involved in all of them. To join a social media site I have to be able to have a good reason to join and it can’t be, “all of my friends are doing it.” If that is your motto then it is time to delete and deactivate some of your accounts. 

I define a ‘Social Media Rebel Without a Cause’ as a person who has an account for every single social media site known. Here are a few types of rebels:

  • Bandwagon: “It’s new and shiny I just have to join.”
  • Boredom: “I have nothing else better to do, why not join.”
  • Dazed & Confused: “I don’t know how this happened, but now I am on every site.” 

There are probably other types of rebels, but I’m sure you get the point. 

Assignment: Take out a piece of paper and write down all of the sites you have joined, even if you are no longer active on them. Then visit those sites and see if the image fits within your personal brand. If not, delete them.

So, are you a social media rebel without a cause?
