I really don’t have much of a social media life to be honest. I have a Facebook account that I’m not always consistent with and my youtube account that I do use a lot to look up music videos and have several subscriptions to specific music artists as well as people who I find entertaining. Which is very different to what I do with my Facebook. I tend to view/ comment on my friends pages and post things that I think that they’ll find equally humourous like pictures or memes that I just happened to stumble upon while I was on Facebook. I honestly didn’t even know that G+ was a new social media site. Mainly because I feel like Facebook is enough for me and if people want to know what’s going on in my life, normally the can just call me or text me and I’ll let them know! LOL Even though that’s very true I would like to get more into the social media life and actually get involved with things like Instagram and Snapchat.
I believe both my Facebook and my Youtube accounts are private and have never been open to the public simply because I value my privacy as well as other people’s privacy and I think that certain things should be only be seen by friends and family.
After reading Danah Boyd’s article I definitely will think more about the comments and posts that I’m going to be uploading to Facebook and videos I post on YouTube, from here on in because one day I might regret posting or saying something inappropriate on the site and what’s on the internet is there forever so anyone can find it! That means my future boss’s too! So I’d also like to be more careful with what I say because one day when I’m applying for jobs, the difference between applying and getting a job might be what comments from Facebook comes up in the google search engine when you type in my name!
