I don’t know about you, but I am starting to feel like a man with many wives when it comes to social media. What started out as an innocent bout of social media dating has quickly turned into a full blown affair.
At first I thought it would be a simple case of the grass being greener on the other side of the social media fence. However, it didn’t take long for me to realize that I thoroughly enjoyed making out with Google Plus.
My Infatuation with Google Plus
Ok, so infatuation is probably a bit overstated here – but what I will say is that my relationship with Google Plus is becoming quite steady. Like any person in a relationship, I check in multiple times a day and keep a tight account for the activities that go on throughout the day.
That being said, I have to admit that I’m simply drawn to the visual appeal of Google Plus much more than Facebook. I’m a minimalist and like things simple.
Now let’s talk about being this Facebook thing, which reminds me of what happens when celebrities wear too much makeup.
A Rock and a Hard Place
So here’s the deal – as much as I like Google Plus, I’m still stuck with Facebook.
Because unfortunately Facebook was here first, and sunk it’s nasty claws into me early on and I feel there is no way out. (Back in my college days we called this sort of thing having beer googles.)
I committed to Facebook a long time ago, so I really can’t walk out the door cold turkey. I feel like I’m in a bad marriage. The kind of situation you settle for too early, before you’ve had a chance to date around.
Polygamy is the Only Solution
The funny thing is – I haven’t even talked about the relationship I have with Twitter. Smooth as silk. No complaints. Love the interface, how it moves, the way it smells.
And have I mentioned that I also have wandering eyes when it comes to social media? I’ve recently been seen walking around town with Instagram – so the rumors of that torrid love affair are completely spot on.
What can I say? I love me some social media, and really can’t come to a rational conclusion when it comes to making a decision. I’m actively involved in a number of social media relationships – and I’m ok with that.
Have You Looked in the Mirror?
So take a long hard look in the mirror of your social media life and tell me what you see. Are you performing social media polygamy too?
I’d be willing to bet that most (if not all) of you are doing the same thing I am and living many lives. So fess up – is it Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter?
Which one, er, rather how many social media relationships are you currently in? Discuss in the comments below…
I am well aware that the image I choose to use for this post is showing 3 male lions and one female lion. So from a gender standpoint the depiction isn’t quite accurate.
But cut me some slack – will ya? You don’t have much to choose from when you search royalty-free images for animals + polygamy…
