You’ve Got 99 Problems But Social Media Ain’t One

by | Jan 20, 2020

Brace yourselves. At the time of writing, ‘New Year, New Me’ is in full swing and people are making drastic changes everywhere you look. One of the most popular resolutions we’ve seen is people giving up on social media.

Now, what’s weird is, as social media progresses and becomes a bigger part of our lives, more people are giving it up. On LinkedIn, we’ve seen people saying, “Oh, I’ve given up Facebook or I’ve given up Instagram.”

Yes, some people do need to stop. Particularly one guy on LinkedIn who was saying that he’d be checking Facebook at traffic lights (which we’re pretty sure is illegal!), at dinner, in bed and even on the toilet. I mean, the toilet…! How un-British!

So some people should indeed go cold turkey and stop straightaway.

But, for the average serial scroller amongst us, cutting back a bit will do the trick. Social media is a powerful tool, and with great power, comes great responsibility. So, for the sake of good vs evil, let’s get some moderation….

So long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, good night

A good way to start, if you think you’re getting a bit too obsessed with social media, is to do a cull. Look at the people you’re following, the businesses you’re following, the kind of people you’re connected with. If they don’t inspire you, educate you or make you feel good, it’s probably best to go your separate social ways. Design your feed to be a place of positivity, learning and motivation.

If certain people aren’t doing it for you anymore, but you don’t want them to know, just unfollow them. They go on thinking you love their four rants and six selfies a day, whilst you go on blissfully unaware.

Tweet people the way you want to be tweeted

Whenever we produce content, it’s sole purpose is to either inspire, educate or motivate you. We’re not trying to sell you things or make you feel bad about yourself or your business. We’re sharing what we’ve learned over the years when it comes to marketing and design. We put out what we wish to receive. Helpful, creative posts.

It was one time…

You looked at one Star Wars T-shirt, one time, and now you’re seeing adverts 47 times a day for it. If you’re getting bombarded by ads you think are irrelevant and overly repetitive, block them.

Tell Facebook/Insta/Linky Dink why you don’t want to see that kind of content anymore and it should magically stop.

 We were on a break!

If you think you are addicted to social media, or you simply feel drained by it, then maybe just take a break, rather than stop altogether.

Social media is brilliant and has the power to really transform your business. (OK, we’re biased, admittedly.) They say you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with. So, if you’re the average of the five social media account you follow, make sure it’s good stuff.
