I am cramming three topics into this quick blog. I wanted to write about all three but didn’t want to spam out three posts back to back. And, as it goes in the social media world – If I waited a week to post one of these it might not be relevant any longer.
Exactly one month ago I started using Path and Instagram. The delay on Path was due to my utter need to avoid it as long as I could, and for Instagram it was the barrier to entry since I have only Android devices. On that day a month ago, the Android Instagram app launched and I started to walk down the Path. I wrote a quick blog about the two new (for me) social platforms.
This week I did something monumental. I started using two social platforms that previously were completely foreign to me. Well, I knew what they were – I was aware they existed, but I had never touched them, seen the mobile app or really dug in much to what they were all about. One was a matter of barrier to entry. I have an Android mobile phone and tablet, so I physically couldn’t use Instagram until today. The other, Path, I was basically avoiding simply to avoid.
