More and more I’ve been seeing people online constantly! I have to wonder if this taking away from their family time or their interaction with the world. I would criticize teenagers that don’t leave their mom’s basements, spending all day and night playing video games, is social media and what you are doing really any better?
There are times when I’ve left to go show homes, or to go coach baseball, and when I’ve come back and they have been on Activerain, Facebook, or Twitter and you see that they have left 125 tweets in those few hours. What? You didn’t sell any real estate? You didn’t talk to your family?
I do understand the importance of tweeting, as I picked up my first client today from it. I’ve gotten most of my business in the last 2 years from blogging on Activerain, but there is one thing that will and always has come first and that is my family and family time with softball, the parks (which I integrate in to my blogs) and the family dinner.
So, has social media taken over your life to the point your family has to wait for you finish typing one last comment or one last tweet before you will even look up to say good morning or good night?
Think about your answer then go kiss your family and say, “I’m sorry.”
