Social Media and the use of the social networking websites in day-to-day life has brought success and happiness to some and frustration to others. There are many aspects of the online world that is confusing to many people and that is the topic of discussion in this post.
Problems Using Online Social Media
A good friend of mine who doesn’t use social media and online world as much as I do, explained to me his frustration with this whole online thing and asked me if I had any resolutions to these problems.
Just to paraphrase and highlight some of the issues he brought up are:
- If you are on Google+ and I prefer to use Facebook, or may be Twitter – how do we make sure we can effectively communicate and add value to each other on social media?
- There are so many social networking websites and by the time you get comfortable with one, another next best thing comes up. How do you keep up with that?
- In the real world, if I know you, I know exactly how to get in touch with you within a reasonable amount of time. But using online social media, there is a lot of uncertainty around the message delivery and receipt.
Well, I think that my friend has some really valuable points and I do agree that we need to address these issues to be able to make effective use of our online time with social media and effective networking.
