✅ A Social Media Strategy
I think it's time to admit that as much as I love connecting with people, doing it in environments that are actively harmful is a violation of my ethics. I'm talking about using social media.
Currently I have a presence on just about every platform except for TikTok, and I primarily use Twitter with a dash of Instagram. But any app at scale that uses algorithms to "engage" people has proven to be harmful. I find the whole thing with problematic billionaires buying board seats gross. But the latest being this story of an incredible onslaught of online harassment of women with no response from Instagram:
This is a proposal to change how I use social media.
Option 1: Nuclear 🤯 Delete all accounts and stop using social media. No apps on my phone, no accounts on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
Option 2: Broadcast 📡 Unfollow on all accounts. Do not use apps for consumption or interaction, but only for broadcasting of KmikeyM announcements.
Option 3: Dark Mode 🌑 Make all accounts private. Use apps for small group interactions with a primary focus on shareholders.
Option 4: A Break 📅 Less a solution and more a break to see how it feels. Take a six month break from interacting with social media. Use this to determine what is useful and provides value and where to go next.
Option 5: Status Quo 🤷♂️ It's fine. It's all... fine. Just keep going.
