Social Media is a TRIP. I joined Facebook in 2009 with one intention; to figure out where my class reunion was going to be. How in the world would I know if I no longer lived in my town anymore, not to mention been in much contact with any of my classmates? I was determined nonetheless to get home and share stories, life achievements, and reflect on those who died too soon. Fast forward to 2016, I am still on Facebook and jumped into Linkedin for the professional networking. I have never been on MySpace, Kik, Instagram, Twitter, SnapChat. Never got into WORDS with Friends, and the list goes on; I just wasn’t interested. I tried online dating, and let’s just say that will be a future BLOG…UGGGG. Facebook has been my safe place.
“Heyyy Helen” was created because one of the things I do on Facebook is post sports updates, trash talking, and dancing video’s when my team (Philadelphia Eagles) win. My Facebook Friends would comment, like, and the Trolls (lol) I’m sure they do what they do best…Troll. But the question was and still remains… Does anyone REALLY care about what I have to say? With a considerable amount of confidence, I say; “Yes they do”.
People care about what you have to say when it’s helps, encourages, and benefits them. I often say I’m no expert, and I don’t know everything, but I know enough to be dangerous ☺ I say Social Media is a trip because, there are plenty of people that have something to say, but it’s not always helpful, encouraging and beneficial. For example, If I see another passive and subliminal FACEBOOK post about “somebody hating on you, or how folks need to stay out YO (yes I said Yo, instead of YOUR) business, You know the BUSINESS YOU decided to POST on Social Media
Because of Heyyy Helen I had to step outside of my comfort zone which includes me increasing my Social Media Presence and Engagement. Life is too short to spend it angry ALL the time. Trust me I know everyone won’t like my POSTS, BLOGS, Pictures and even my Views, but what I do know is for those that want to take the journey with me, we going ride this thing until the Wheels Fall OFF…. Because WE CAN!!!!
