I’m a Social Media Outlaw or How Being Restricted on Linked-In and Google + Made Me Not Better, Just Mad.

2 Comments

  Yes I am a Social Media Outlaw.  I have been restricted on Linked-In from making connections because apparently I had too many people who said “no” to my invitations by clicking an “I don’t know you” response.  So, their Social Media nanny had to tell me to take my toys and go home. I guess the whole point of Linked-In is to connect with people who you already know and ask them about their lives, which you already know about, because you already know them.

Eventually everyone is going to catch on and move to other sites like Google +. 
However, I hope you have a “normal” American name because if you don’t you will end up like me, restricted on Google + as well. I understand that it takes months to have an abnormal name approved like my husbands’, which happens to be Like. 

Here I was having a really good time making new friends and building business opportunities for myself and others.  I was researching profiles to make sure that I could add value to their professional lives and reading the great group discussions and connecting to like-minded people.

Oh well, back to skulking around the mall, meeting people at the grocery store, and resurrecting my holiday card lists. I’m sure that all the truly mature people on Linked-In would say that obstacles make you a better person and mountains are there to climb.  Nope, not me, I’m an outlaw so this hasn’t made me better, just mad.
