The Artist at work episode 21
Believe it or not, Facebook didn’t even exist when I was in college.
I know, I know.
But I’ve always been an early adopter when it comes to social media. I was on Friendster then Myspace then really held off for Facebook, but was quick to nab my Instagram handle to ensure it matched my AIM screen name from high school. Hey, I'm brand loyal.
I loved Snapchat before stories existed on any other platform. I’ve always kept my LinkedIn profile up to date. And well, I’ve just admitted to myself I’m too old to participating in TikTok 🤪
But what’s interesting to uncover is how my relationship with each of these platforms have shifted over the years.
I’ve always approached things with a channel-specific intentions, but when Timehop shows me a glance into what I was up to 10 years ago with an obscure Facebook status update and 10 grainy instagram feed pictures from the same day, I can’t help but be a little bit embarrassed.
On Episode 21 of The Artist at Work, we are talking all about social media – our changing relationship, being more intentional with the content we consume and give to the world and the nuances along the way.
It’s an interesting conversation with varied viewpoints and undoubtedly silly references and tangents. Give it a listen 🎧
