Week 14 – social media

Week 14 – social media

When I decided that I was going to start a new way of working I knew that if anyone apart from friends and family were going to find out about me I really needed to engage with social media.   I had effectively avoided doing this during my time in Acas.  I had a Twitter account and was Linked In, but never engaged in discussion on the latter and wrote a total of at most 10 tweets over a 2 year period (my apologies to all my ex-colleagues who tried their best to encourage me in this) . This blog was my first tentative step in trying to establish an online presence. This weekend I gritted my teeth and set up a new Twitter account: @Fionathere4you . I always struggled at Acas with knowing what to share via Twitter. I felt that anything I might say was rather obvious – I had  probably been in the world of employment relations for too long . The advantage of a entering a new sphere is that to me everything is fresh.This time round my plan is see how I get on sharing interesting pregnancy and massage related material I come across; as well as updates on my “business” – just hope that it does not come across as totally banal!
