I, Taryn Foshee, suffer from debilitating, paralyzing Social Media Anxiety Deficit Disorder. This self-diagnosis is quite serious for someone who blogs and operates over 13 various social media accounts, but admitting there is problem is the first step toward recovery, right? So, what does Social Media Anxiety Deficit Disorder look like? Let me show you…
I will use my personal experience with Twitter as an example, but it works the same with every evil, I mean useful, social media tool.
Sound familiar? You aren’t alone! Never felt that way? Lucky you!
One way I cope with Social Media Anxiety Deficit Disorder on Twitter is Incessant Re-Tweeting. [So lame!] It’s my white-girl overbite dance move, my go-to fist pump. I mean, if someone else tweeted it first, it must be good, right? And Now? NOW there’s Google+ and I have to learn all about circles and what to do in those circles, and how to get people in my circle, and how to interact with other circles. AHHHHH!!!!! Deep…Breath…
So the plan in this: Admit there is a problem (check!), build up my immunity through repeated exposure, get comfortable being uncomfortable, and just in case, keep paper bags nearby.
