But having an Instagram, Twitter or Pinterest account confuses me. Let's start with the ones that I truly know nothing about... Twitter. I thought it was something that you only did from your phone. You can only type x number of characters and you "follow" people, like stars and stuff who tell what they are up to that second. Huh? Why would I care? If I really want to know what anyone I care about is up to, I can just
Then there is a new one called Instagram... it is all about posting pictures and again, "following" people through their pictures. Am I missing the boat here? I thought I could do that on the social outlets I already use - my blog for one, Facebook, or Shutterfly. I don't see a need to have ANOTHER location to upload photos. Seriously, is there more to it than I can understand. I have to be honest, I have never even explored the option, so maybe there is. If anyone wants to, please enlighten me.
Now here is my all time favorite, I don't get it - Pinterest. I signed up at the bidding of everyone. "You will love it", they said. "You have to do it", they said. I couldn't tell you who "they" are. Trust me, though, they were saying it. So I did, and I tried to set it up. Then I was stuck. Basically, as I see it, it is a like a giant Favorites list, but on a website instead of right here on my browser window. Why is this more beneficial to me? The only logical answer I have for this is that if your computer were to crash and be unrecoverable, you lose your favorites. On Pinterest, you're safe because the data is stored on their site.
I am a Google girl. We are buddies. I search, he provides (I assume it to be a he, though not so logical when thinking about a man's "search" habits LOL). When I find a link that would be useful at a later date, I either add it to my Favorites Bar with a simple click or I use - gasp - 2 clicks to add it to my Favorites List. I creat folders there - Running, Blog, Recipes, Shopping, Bills, etc. When I want to revisit them, I open a folder, click a site and boom, I am there. Sounds eerily like... Pinterest? Please, please someone tell me that I am not the only one!
