Mad Season

I feel stupid, but I know it won’t last for long
And I’ve been guessin’, and I coulda been guessin’ wrong
You don’t know me now, I kinda thought that you should somehow
Has that whole mad season got ya down?

Rez Day

With mad season I don’t mean the silly Christmas season. I had a very interesting encounter last night. I was dancing at a club, but really just listening to the music while I worked in Photoshop, when I got an IM from someone I knew from seeing around the grid. He just said ‘hi’ and we started chatting. I then realized, that things has changed so much. Today is my 4th rez day in Second Life and three years ago, when someone IM’ed you, the normal getting to know each other ensued.  Basic questions of where are you from etc.

But our conversation of last night was different, because of social media this guy already knew about me.  He has been on my Facebook friends list for ages as we know the same people. Then I wondered about my reputation. We never talked before, but I was curious to what my reputation said about me. I didn’t ask, but it made me look back on the type of things I posted over time… this is surely a social media mad season and it is going to last for long.

What role do you wanna play?
I’m just a click away night or day
And if you think I’m not the one
Log off, log off and we’ll be done

Do you wanna date my avatar?
She’s a star
And she’s hotter than reality by far
Wanna date my avatar

– The Guilt

You KnowWhen I was still relatively new and was spending most of my time at The Shelter, we used to joke about ‘How you know you spend too much time in Second Life’. I know we all made those jokes but it was fun to revisit some of the reasons, so here goes:

1. When you look at your hair in the mirror in RL and think… omg, I’ve been ruthed!

2. You meet someone new and you have an overwhelming urge to look at their profile.

3. When you find yourself moving like your AO.

4. Thinking of clothing items you want to wear and not being able to remember if you own them in RL or SL.

5. You buy new furniture in RL and wonder if it will take you over your prim limit!

6. When you sign documents with your second life name.

7. Instead of laughing in RL you actually say ‘LOL’ or ‘sadface’

I’m sure we can all identify with this. let me know if you have more! In the photos I’m wearing another romper from 20.FIVE. In my opinion it must be my favorite so far. It fits my shape really well and I had fun playing around with different looks and had a hard time deciding on a final one.

Social Networks

I have decided to do another Meme as it is fun. 🙂 So here goes my Social Media Meme:

What was the first social network you joined using your SL Avatar?
Kionup since April of 2011.

Which social networks are you currently on using your SL Avatar?
Flickr, Facebook Page, Twitter, Plurk, Pinterest, Koinup, Instagram

Which network is your favorite and least favorite?
Facebook is my favourite as I have all my close inworld friends that I chat with there and then Plurk is a really close second, although I have only met about two people in Second Life. The community on Plurk is funny, fun and always keeps me informed! My least favorite network is Tweet. I really only log onto Tweet when I blogged, to post a blog. I don’t have a network of friends on there.

How/Where do you usually read/use most of your networks?
I interact more on my networks when I’m at work as don’t have access to Second Life.

What do you like most and least about social networking sites?
I really like the friendships that I form the most about those networks, but also the information sharing.

The least is the negativity and when someone post something deliberately to hurt someone else. I know I’m a dreamer, and that if people are like I want them to be, life will be extremely boring. I have read so many comments about ‘I hate nice people’. Niceness can be overkill, but if some people just consider their actions and think about someone else’s feelings, there will be a lot less hate in the world.  You don’t have to be ‘nice’ all the time, but you also don’t have to be negative and downright spiteful all the time either. There is a fine line.

Do you feel social networks are a good way to promote you/your brand/your work? 
Yes it can if it is used correctly. If not it may be away to break down your brand. Another fine line and I’m learning as I go. 😀

What is your main reason for using Social Networks?
My number one reason is to enjoy time with friends. Yes, I know a weird thing to say when I am the one that never IM’s you first! I get easily distracted okay! But I try and my second reason is to learn how to improve the things I love doing, e.g. photographs and blogging. And then to show off what I have learned.
