You came here to leave behind algorithmic feeds, advertisement and annoying overruling billionaires. But, probably, you won't immediately delete all your corporate social media accounts. It's not easy, I get it.
The good news is that being active in different social media could mean experimenting with different social media behaviors. If corporate social media are spammy and attention-grabbing, why not using them only for the spammy and attention-grabbing posts, for the relentless self-promotion that many of us are sort of required to do for work?
Let's leave the eyeball-accumulation mindset to birdsite (that's what we call Twitter here), facebook and instagram. Free from that burden, we can make this a space of authentic exchange, not one where everyone shouts at one another while nobody is listening.
@entreprecariat you know what? Yes. But. Here’s a thought: so many of these messages, of pretty much the same stripe. Do they do what they are meant to? I think I have read around 8 today alone. As an ex-birdsite peep, I get it. Oddly enough, as a motorcyclist, I get it too, when we all talk about cagers, and I get it amongst my farming friends when we talk about city folk, and I know what it is. It’s all good, we’ll all work out just fine, trust me. Much love…
