Ignoring may lead to negative ladders . . .

In the past I have shared that I have a Facebook page, but have done little with it.  I get notices that people want to "friend" me, but have for the most part ignored them.  Recently, I received a message that people are I think it said "unfriending" me or something like that.  This may be a reaction to my ignoring requests and that creates some dissonance for me as I think about the message it gives when I don't accept or respond in any way.  I guess it is time to figure this thing out or discontinue my reserving a space that is not used.  I don't want people to think that I don't want to friend them.

Some way I also joined LinkedIn and have started receiving the same kind of requests.  I know even less about this one and can't even remember when or why I joined.  So, I have some social media decisions to make.  Ignoring requests and the possible negative ladders of inference that may result is not what I want.  I've decided to try and change my behavior, not a new year's resolution, just a positive step in my social media image.

By the way, have you visited Tahoma's Facebook page?  I think with over 20,000 people in the city plus the thousands in our system living outside the city we should have more than 2,674 followers.  If you have not yet joined, please do and let your friends and neighbors know about it.
