As usual, another comic full of win from Dilbert. This is from Tuesday July 12, 2011.
I’ll confess that I’m not a daily Dilbert devotee (like that alliteration?), but I do visit the site every few weeks and take a few minutes to catch up.
When someone asks about my usage of social media tools, I often receive comments like “Well I’m too busy to waste so much time on stuff like that.” And I have to be honest, it’s getting increasingly annoying. I don’t have time to natter on about your favourite reality TV show (nor to I bother wasting hours watching it), but I’m not getting snarky at you. Sorry, but I’m not interested in the latest cutie that was unfairly was voted off this week.
Despite what you may think, I’m not playing around on Facebook or Twitter (or Google+) all day. When I share something to one of these social media platforms, it’s while I’m researching or getting up-to-date on current events. If I see something interesting, I’ll hit a button on that website that will allow me to post a link to one of my social media pages.
Ironically, it probably takes you longer to read my post, click on the link and then evaluate whether or not you want to take in all of the information on that page. So maybe I’m not the one wasting more time…
