Value and oversharing online

In the age of social media it’s easy to overshare. You can go from sharing behind the scenes of your business, hobby or creative work to showing people what you ate for breakfast, how you ruined your manicure and asking for suggestions for your new hair colour.

For some people, it works, they like sharing themselves with people in that way. But for others it would be considered too much.

It’s can be challenging to judge whether you need to push yourself to share more online or if sharing more is the wrong thing for you.

If you find yourself caught up in uncertainty over what to share online, consider why you want to share those details.

Does it add to the work you create, does it add value, is it something you’re comfortable doing or is it just more ‘stuff’ to scroll through?

 

 

Is this worth sharing?

A question worth asking before you click publish in order to avoid that dreaded feeling of sharing something you’re not happy with.

Not everyone will get something from what you share each day but that’s not the point. The point is to share something you’re happy with.

If it sparks a thought or shifts a perspective etc then great but if not there’ll be something new tomorrow.

And the day after that.
