My blog post Don’t Tweet Your Face(book) Off via Tyra.com


I love the progression of Social Networking; we can share everything with our tweeps and ‘friends’ in a second’s notice, but it seems that it has affected our human interaction.  Instead of a phone call, text, or email- we now update our status. I think we’re beginning to tweet our faces off!

Here are 5 things to share with people (the ones you actually can touch) instead of to your network:

1.  VDA (Viral Displays of Affection):

I miss my honey so much, I can’t wait to see him later and give him a big kiss.

— Sweet, honest it is.  But keep that to yourself. Tell or text your ‘honey,’ not your social network.

2.  The Play by Play:
OMG! Are you serious! What is Jennings doing?!

— I like sports, but I don’t know who Jennings is or what he’s doing! Stop being a sportscaster on Twitter and just have a game day party with friends.

3.  What’s Your 20:
I’m in a cab going down 9th Avenue.

— I’m not quite sure whom you should be sharing this with, but this should definitely be a conversation between you and the person you’re hopefully meeting, not the entire cyber-world.

4.  Get off the Poll:
What should I eat, guys?.. What album should l listen to?

— I don’t know; I’m not a mind reader. Statuses aren’t an “Ask the Audience” Lifeline. Ask your BFF, they know you best.

5.  TMI:
My boyfriend just broke up with me without an explanation. I can’t get out of bed. FML.

— I sympathize, I really do.  But maybe this is the time to call your girls, and have a girl’s sleepover fest to cheer you up.

Follow these tips and your real-life social network will grow with a little face-to-face contact, feel free to share everything to actual ears.
