The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World Review

This post is sponsored by The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World book by Allison Sher.

I was given a digital copy of this book. I thought that it would be good to read, even though I am a Gen X'er. There is just so much talk about the Millennial's right now that I thought that it would be good to get to know what is going on inside their head.

About the Book  The Millennial's Guide to Changing the World teaches young people everything they need to know to change the world, while building a happy, healthy adult life for themselves. It explains how our current social systems work, the challenges young people are inheriting and how millennials can step into our power to create a critical mass conversion to solve them. Everything from politics to spirituality to love relationships to education to sex to economics to mental health is covered. And it includes 50 or so juicy, true life stories from millennials across the country…

Reasons Why I Don't Follow You On Social Media

I don't know if this makes me look like an ass or not, but there is a pretty good chance I don't follow you on the social media sites that I try to stay somewhat active on.

I think I have my reasons. I only use Twitter and Instagram and tried Periscope but nah.

The Twittah

I think I was most active on Twitter around 2012-2013. I stopped doing twitter chats as I was never around my computer in the evenings when they happened. Being in my fitness funk I kinda didn't even want to go on to Twitter because it would make me feel bad about not being out there and loving my workouts.

I follow over 500 of you peeps on Twitter and I can't keep up on all of your fabulous blog posts and happenings. I have a personal twitter account where I only follow a handful of people and companies. I can engage with them and read my whole feed during the day. I can't do that with the RunInBoise account.

On Instagram, I follow the least amount of people, but with the hashtagings, its easier to connect with you. I spend more time browsing and looking at everyone's posts and even stalking their blogs. And if you like or comment on my posts, I will gladly do the same. I want to follow more people but I could not keep up with so many people posting so much every day.

I want to connect with you. I can't do that when companies change the analytics to show me what I need to have at the top of my feed. I want to read my whole feed everyday and I can't do that with every awesome one of you added to my account.

Plus, if you don't like or comment on my comment(s) or even on my posts, I generally won't follow you or even click on your posts. I'm kinda shallow that way.

So that's why I don't follow you on social media. How do you decide who you are going to add to a follower on social media?
