I was thinking about the web of connections we make in our lives and the method we use to communicate.
I’m not a super social person. My day-job is a remote position. I spend my days in wall-to-wall phone calls, wading through email tsunami and IM flood.
My order of preference for most communication is Text/IM/Hangouts then email then phone, then in person. And well after smoke signals and Morse Code would be Vlog or video calls/chats.
When I see Vloggers and vids on FB, I don’t get it. I’m not sure it’s an age thing. Maybe it’s because I feel talked at or that the media feels awkward.
Awkward like a first date.
Just like a first date, the person could have an annoying habit. A head toss that drives me insane. Or flailing hands that are trying to escape from their body. Or maybe a stare like that crazy dog in the pound in Shaun the Sheep the movie. ( https://www.pinterest.com/pin/348254983666104853/ )
So for me, until I know you won’t be subjected to my hair-trigger eye rolling, let’s stick to a non-video form of communication.
