Confession…in our social ineptitude (we’re old enough to wear it like a badge, now!), Brock and I just about gave up on Facebook and Twitter. Neither one of us quite ‘get’ it. In person, we’ve finally come into our own when we can look you in the eye and read all the social signals…but on Social Media, it’s just hard.
Nonetheless, Brock and I have set an early New Year’s resolution. And we’re giving Facebook and Twitter another go. We’re trying to post and interact every day…and we’re wondering, do you have a hard time on social media? If you’re socially – what word should we use – awkward, disadvantaged, challenged? – do you have a hard time interacting? Or does the anonymity of the internet help you?
What about your kids? Ours don’t have any problem at all coming up with witty posts and clever responses.
We promise we won’t make fun of what you’re wearing and we certainly won’t stuff you in a locker or anything. In fact, we’ll be so grateful that you’re talking to us – we might be rendered all speechless! Just like when we were in 9th grade…
