Happy Hump Day guys!

Grab a cup of coffee as we continue our discussion on what the ideal social media membership is or should be.

Less than 36 hours ago, the first highlight we identified under this topic, is the attribute of building an appropriate and strong profile. ClickHERE to view post.

Today, we’ll be looking at another attribute of ideal social media membership.

CIRCLE BUILDING

This can also be referred to as environment creation (where environment in this context means what surrounds you on social media).

A circle can be likened to a rotation or continuous cycle. This is to define the viscous cycle of following people and getting followed.

Circle building can be looked at in four important ways:

1.) Do unto others as you have them do to you. Whatever vibes you give out on social media is what you’ll get.

2.) Who and what you follow on social media determines the circle you build around your self and the environment you create for your mental health.

3.) Keeping track of people with the same school of thought as you.

4.) Creating substantial relationships and friendships

Your mind often has an open door, whatever you take into the room of your mind metamorphoses into a house someday; Your eyes are a window and whatever they see continuously, seats in the center of your mind.

This is to say, followership or following people on social media is a serious cause of being made or broken by social media.

The posts of the people you follow, you should ask yourself often: “is this good for me”?, “is this moving me in the direction I said I want to go”?, “is this good for my mental health”?, “does this challenge me to be a better person or does it intensify my weaknesses”?, “does this boost my confidence or does it magnify my insecurities”?

One thing we often fail to recognize is that social media feeds our minds and influences our thoughts , words and actions”

The best way to build a circle or environment for yourself on social media is to identify who you are and then start to identify the people who are on the same page with you in life.

Whoever and whatever you follow on social media determines what follows you 95% of the time.

I hope this was somewhat helpful in some way.

Do have a lovely Wednesday and see you guys in the next post.

This blog post is over due as social media craze didn’t just start neither does it ever reduce . It’s always on the increase.

IDEAL SOCIAL MEDIA MEMBERSHIP .

This was one of the topics addressed by Fashion blogger , movie costumer and entrepreneur Desola Mako at the Exhale Woman Christmas edition of SLAYCADEMY. If you follow my social media, you’re already familiar with the “Exhale Woman” initiative.

What is social media and what is it meant for?

Social Media as the name implies is different and various medium of socializing. And to socialize means to integrate with your peers, older ones, colleagues, business tycoons, celebrities and basically diverse human beings.

Social Media is for socializing, integrating, advertising, giving information and keeping in close contact with people across borders. The above mentioned can be further broken down into different positive things that social media can and should be used for.

Over the years, these uses of social media have been sidelined, forgotten, misused and exchanged with cyber bullying and all sorts of online shuddering.

But this blog post is not intended to shed light on the various forms of social media negativity . Instead, we’re here to discover what ideally should be our mandate for being members of any social media application.

PROFILE:

Building a profile on social media is serious business. This is in few words, giving the whole world a ticket to being a part of your journey whether private or public. Your profile is an encapsulation of who, what, how and where you are in life. How you choose to portray it is solely your business. However, you may choose to learn from top social media creatives , celebrities or your mentors. In that light, one must not confuse getting inspired with copy and pasting. Regardless of likes and comments, building your profile should do the things mentioned below:

1. Post pictures of yourself owning your beauty, skin and style. Preferably clear and pleasing to the eyes.

2. Infuse interesting or not so captions that give people an insight on how you are character and humor wise.

3. Advertise your brand whether it is a private or public business. You just never know who needs what your brand has to offer and who wants to be a blessing to it. And even if you don’t have a brand, you may choose to advertise what you are known for or good at even if you are a “9-5” er or student.

4. Celebrate your family and friends as well as support them. It puts you ahead of others.

5. Don’t get High on likes and comments however appreciate them as they come.

….to be continued.
