My Favorite . . . Social Media Account

My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it.. The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive. For more info: My Favorite Meme.

So, I love social media. It’s like i can talk to people without actually talking to people. I’m on Facebook, both my personal account and a page for my blog. I’m also on Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter, all 3 of which are a combo of personal stuff and blog stuff. It’s hard to pick a favorite. I enjoy Facebook for seeing what friends are up to. I also share events I want to go to on there with my husband and mom, so I don’t forget to tell them. It’s also a great place to share articles with the people I think would find them interesting.

I honestly don’t use Twitter much. You can tell when I’m on because of the rash of re-tweets, but that’s about it.

I love Instagram. I like seeing photos: families, friends, food, books. I’m always amazed by how creative some people are and how perfect a simple photo can be.

My favorite, though, might be Pinterest. I don’t post original pins often, but I do love combing through others’ pins for ideas. Yes, I’ve had a couple of fails, but I’ve also found a bunch of recipes that are delicious. I also really like trying craft ideas I find. It’s also a great way to organize ideas. I just started a board with ideas for Amber’s graduation party and I’ve got one with places I want to visit when we finally take a trip to Washington, DC.

You can find the links to all my social media accounts on my sidebar.

And then I looked at sidebar and saw Goodreads. Does that count as a social media account? Because I adore Goodreads, if only for help keeping track of what I own and what books I still need to get ahold of. I also like the ratings and reviews; they help give me a sense of whether or not I want to read a given book. I trust the reviews on there way more than those on Amazon.

  1. I loooove Social Media too! And I have accounts on all of them. But I think I love Instagram the most. I just love watching through all those photos. It’s like traveling without having to go somewhere. 😀
    Thanks for joining and sharing your favorite!

  2. Oh yes! Social media junkie for sure. I’m about the same on Twitter. Only reason it looks like I’m there is because I have some other apps that retweet things (FB and Instagram posts) lol

    I need to hop over to Pinterest. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. I LOVE Pinterest! I find a lot of great recipes, book lists, and other ideas on there. I’ve had my share of fails as well. I also pin a lot of stuff I probably won’t ever try or do. But Pinterest is awesome!
