So it appears that I have spent the best part of my day communicating with many people. Friends, mainly, some who like to think they are my friend but are merely just an aquaintance of life or social network wonderment. Then there are customers, this is the part where I had to leave behind the networking part of my life and drive to the place of employment and actually had to TALK to my Customers. TALK, can you believe it.
I drove down the motorway kinda chattering away to myself, I thought it best to practise this phenomenon just incase I had forgotten how to do it by the time I got there. White van men slowed down and considered me a visual beauty but then stepped on the accelerator and quickly broke free from the loony in the Polo who clearly had made a friend of the bear shaped air freshener on the dashboard. (Go with the visual beauty, Im liking the idea even if it seems that it is so not true, makes me feel better!)
Work doesn't see the social networking sites as part of everyday schedule, how rude? Work still gets done doesn't it? Ok granted it gets done 100% over 6 days rather than the 1 it was supposed to be completed, due to the fact that the "Aquaintance of life" has just updated her status for the 15th time within the hour and is now on their 6th cup of tea and has just done the ironing and awaits Jeremy Kyle to start as it is the best part of their day. How can this not be of interest?
The simple truth of it all is that I miss my networking and had spent the best part of the morning texting arranging precious time off with my friends, inboxing via facebook. Had to laugh yesterday as I was in discussion with a friend and her husband and I said " Yes I inboxed her earlier" . This created huge hilarity within conversation, you see to me it's part of my daily terminology but I suppose to the non inboxer (haha) and someone who does not spend copious amounts of time within the digital world then it must seem funny.
So back to today, I found that I was tweeting on Twitter, I was inboxing on Facebook to tell my friend Michelle that I was tweeting, we then, between us had a text conversation to assertain if she had found me, to follow on Twitter. You see facebook is not enough we HAD to follow each other on there too. We may just miss something. I found Redroom to follow and "tweeted" to Michelle to explain that I had found it and she should follow too. I updated my facebook status to advise of some other random gobbledegook ( I just love that word!!)
On another tab I had my email account open, just incase Redroom emailed me to tell me that someone had posted a comment onto my blog, I waited patiently and eagerly whilst emailing my other friend at her place of work to see how her world was rolling today. Continually checking my comments just incase Redroom "forgot" to send me an email. Checking back on my tweets I found that a certain celebrity was tweeting about a subject that I had spent time blogging about, so sent her the link! ( To which she has not replied as yet, I could have updated that I have a celebrity friend)
So you see, all this blogging ( I am offically a Blogette!) and texting, inboxing, tweeting and updating, oh and almost old school now emailing makes life so much more interesting, doesn't it? I find it does for me.
Athough I don't update about Jeremy Kyle, or that I am bored, or how life is crap. I update and try to be positive, to be fun, to make people smile, to make friends and to communicate with interesting people and most of all to learn something new everyday and pass it on.
The way of the world of communication has changed, where will it be in 10 years time.
What will you have learnt? How will you be communicating?
Thanks for reading, don't forget to check your tweets and I don't really have a bear shaped airfreshener!
