Help! I'm stuck in the social media loop
By Jenny Kuglin
I love social media. It is an amazing way to stay in touch with friends, meet new people, and find out second-by-second updates about news events from around the globe. I am constantly amazed and grateful for the interactions I’ve had with people who I would have never met without social media.
But…. sometimes I get stuck in the social media loop. And I can’t get out.
Here’s what usually happens in my brain:
“Let me check my Facebook page to see what’s going on.”
“Now let me check the KOMO Facebook page to see what people are saying.”
“Oh, I wonder if there are any comments on my blog.”
“Let me see if I’ve got one of the top stories on Intersect.”
“It’s been awhile so maybe I should check Facebook again.”
Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
Does this happen to you? Do you get stuck in the loop? How do you get out?? Here’s a funny clip about this problem from the new show Portlandia.
