I’ve had an incredible amount of resistance to Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc. I think a lot of it has come from not understanding the media and not understanding that there are really people behind it all. When you’re staring at a screen and typing on a keyboard, it really can be easy to forget the human element. After further delving into Facebook and Twitter I’ve found it’s really about building community, connections and sharing information.
Cheralyn Watson first talked to me about twitter and I found it tempting but I resisted… “Oh, it’s going to suck up my time which I don’t have enough of b.s.” I do think it’s important to monitor one’s time online but with a bit of time invested, it can be well worth the outcome… When Bobbie Altman mentioned to me how much she was learning about the local art community, I couldn’t help but join twitter and to my delight because of this I was featured on Sub-Studio Design Blog. Such a treat! Thanks Anna and Sub-Studio Design!
