Dr Tanya has given her Blogging Insights series a facelift and is now giving us a quote to work on every week.
“Twitter is like a calling card. Facebook is like a phone call. Blogging is like a full-fledged conversation!”
Ah, I really can’t comment on this as I don’t have a twitter or facebook account, nor do I want one.
My social media is my blog (and meeting dogs), and with the to-ing and fro-ing of comments therein, it is indeed a conversation.
My family are on facebook, and I believe keep in touch that way. Good for them.
I was put off years ago when someone put an invite to a party out on FB and over 250 people turned up, most of which they didn’t know. I do understand that you can restrict your friends and family, but for all I know, the latter would not keep in touch with me anyway for one reason or another and any other means of communication is rarely forthcoming.
I’m old school, pen, paper, stamp and snail mail. I’ve progressed to email though and keep in touch with a few close friends that way.
There is texting, phone calls, skype and zoom, so other means of contact is available.
The art of true conversation seems to be dead though. TV and computers killed that IMO.
My late FIL loved to have debates, sometimes deliberately taking the opposite corner to me and hear my point of view. We often agreed to differ, each respecting the other’s opinion, but when we agreed on something, we were practically joined at the hip!
