Although I am not American, I am well aware that this weekend was Thanksgiving in the US. I found this interesting picture while on Pinterest. I found this picture interesting because it shows how easy it is to collect social media facts, it also shows how much of daily life people are posting on social media.
Social media is so integrated into everyone’s life that they feel the need to share their side dishes, desserts, recipes, and when they are eating dinner. If as they were posting they realized that their social media engagement could be turned into statistics on Thanksgiving do you think this would cause people to think twice before posting.
As a social media user does it worry you that people are using your posts to monitor statistics? Does know that marketing companies can target you through your posts cause you to rethink how open you are on social media or have you accepted this as a common factor of using social media?
The added benefit of this post is that on Black Friday people were still posting about turkey – meaning the true meaning of Thanksgiving is not lost — a big turkey dinner that is!!
