Managing my time on my social media platforms

I had for-seen this thing coming to me, sometime back, I had started to slow down on social media usage especially on my personal Facebook wall and moved towards updating photography stuff on my Facebook Page. In the most recent months, partly due to heavier workload and the friends FB wall getting more complaining, ranting, sharing of stories from “those sources”, it got me to a point whereby I was quite turn off by the posts and rants on Facebook.

The peak and crunch came during the most recent General Elections 2015 in Singapore, the amount of arrows, posts and words flying across the social media channels and platforms. For once, I was kind of switched off totally from my Facebook with the exception of updating my Facebook Page with posts and sharing of photography articles.

Social media, writing, blogging and sharing had brought me to many places, made more new friends and gave me the outreach that I can never imagine for my photography. From the various social media channels and platforms, I was able to learn, improve, participate and interact with like-minded people on photography, travel, heritage, conservation, tech stuff etc etc. Social media is useful for connecting with friends and relatives living overseas and to keep up to date with them.

The turnoff probably come from too much ranting and complaining. In some aspects, fighting and bickering on their FB wall. When my friend Jude shared a video on Anti Social Behaviour, it made me realised that the human race had become Anti Social. Yes, we can’t deny that social media will now be a part of our lives and lifestyle, for the future generations and beyond.

I will still continue to use social media for my outreach, publicity, awareness and marketing. I will also manage my time on social media platforms. The key social media platforms for me in the near future would probably be

Quick and Instant Updates

Twitter

Instagram

Summary Updates

These few platforms allow me to provide instant updates and sharing of my photography. Twitter, of course allows me to say quite a lot of different issues/matters/topics under the weather (I must remember not to anyhow write and post stuff).

Our adult time in this era, quite a lot of time is spent on work and work (and it is already very stressful and pressuring). In my leisure time, I want to spend quality time on quality human touch connections whenever possible and the other is for my personal photography projects that are meaningful, fulfilling, intrinsically rewarding and that can contribute back to society.

This is probably just me, you might share the same thoughts and feelings with me too. However, this might not apply to you too. My friend Jude wrote in our conversation “Don’t disconnect the human touch”. I totally agree, even when we are using the social media platforms and channels.

Let’s bring back the human touch and connections.

A FB Page for My Photography

My photography journey and experiences had been a very fruitful, exciting and life enriching serious hobby and passion. Looking back the days when I started learning the SLR camera, the Pentax ME Super from my father, during the days of analogue camera with film, to the Nikon F401X SLR days to the digital camera before arriving at the Canon DSLRs that I am using today. 

I am not exactly sure when did I really started into photography, there wasn’t any “proof” or “birth certificate” to indicate when I started taking up photography, I remembered around my Primary School days, that would be approximately 23 to 28 years ago that I first ventured into Photography and never looked back since then.

Ever since the arrival of the digital era, I started photographing more often than before. My journeys and photographs were documented, collected and written down onto my photoblog for sharing. It had been a long journey in the blogging / social media world, I grew along with it as well, riding on with the social media wave and expansion. My photoblogging took to a whole new level along with Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Instagram and 500px.

Today, I would like to introduce my Facebook Page dedicated to my photography, my passion in them, my photojournalistic journey. This Facebook Page allows me to share a lot more on my passion, knowledge, learning, mentoring and sharing in photography to my supporters, followers and readers. The Facebook Page would also prevent me from flooding my own Facebook wall too many times!
