Out of all the social media platforms, Facebook allows others to take the closest look at our lives, or at least the lives we lead others to believe we lead. And yet, many people say that Facebook has made communication very impersonal. So, which is it?
It depends on how personal you let Facebook become. If you are an avid Facebook user that posts your every move and every meal on the addicting platform (like many of us here at eKAT Development), Facebook is extremely personal. However, if you are afraid the picture of your morning waffles is too personal (like the rest of us at eKAT Development), you might consider that Facebook has taken away something from direct interaction.
Overall, Facebook has given us what many of us earn for – a choice. We are able to choose if we use Facebook for everything it offers, pick and choose, or not use it at all.
When it comes to businesses, we find that the same fear stands true. Specifically, it is the fear of bad reviews that are uncalled for. To those business owners, we have one advice: trust us, not everyone is out to get you. And just in case they are, we’ll be there to protect your reputation with a swift resolution or a simple click on “Hide as Spam”.
Consider and weigh the pros and cons of letting Facebook into your life. If you decide to try it, remember, you do have a choice of how personal you let it become.
