A Social Media Obssesion

You know you’re obsessed with social media when the first things you do after your alarm goes off in the morning are… (via my iPhone mind you):

1. Check for any Twitter mentions

2. Read through the emails notifying me of my new Twitter followers

3. Check for any new notifications on Facebook

4. Check Instagram for any new followers or likes

5. Go to my Google+ app to view who’s added me to their circle

6. Check out my Chicago Groupon app to see what deals are popular (especially for dinner that day)

7. Head to my LinkedIn app to view the profile of who wants to connect with me

And then to make matters worse, after I spend 10 minutes doing all this on my iPhone, I head straight to my Mac and do it all over again, just so I can see it on a bigger screen or is it because I’m obsessed? Three other things I do once on my computer – (1) head to my iGoogle homepage where I’ve subscribed to and follow multiple RSS feeds of different blogs… all based around social media – here, I read up on any new interesting articles – which I usually end up Tweeting/Retweeting (2) I do a little stumbling on StumbleUpon to see if there’s anything worth sharing with my Twitter followers and (3) I head to my WordPress Blog account to check out my site stats/views/comments – and sometimes take a few minutes to write a blog post about something that is on my mind.

I think it’s safe to say I’m obsessed. I’m starting to become a real Social Media Enthusiast – and I’m not ashamed 😉
