I have a Facebook page. Two written blogs. One personal I don’t share with certain family and friends. They would be judgemental and I could be talking about them. One I could careless who reads. I have a YouTube channel. Which I talk about natural hair and randomness of my life. I cannot see myself using twitter.
This all started when I wrote a book that a friend and I self published. It isn’t selling well so I don’t even want to discuss that issue. Well that is when I started in social media.
Then I got addicted to YouTube. Some of the tutorials and people lives on video. I never thought my life was that interesting. Also I wasn’t sure how much I would actually share on YouTube. I bought a camcorder because I was excited to get stated. It sat in its box for months. I kept thinking to myself would I really put myself out there. Then one day I said why not. What do I have to lose.
So I have 39 videos and climbing. Tutorials, opinions, product reviews. It is my own little news cast. When I am pregnant, I will chronicle it in weekly videos.
The boyfriend doesn’t understand this in any way. He actually refuses for me to even take a picture of him. I would never go behind his back and put it out there without his approval. I told him when the kids are here I am taking pictures. I won’t put him online, but my kids will have pictures of him. He will have to get over it.
I don’t know how social media has become my thing, but it is. My blogs and YouTube channel takes all my attention. I am not that big into Facebook. I go on there once a month maybe.
Well all this to say I did a video on service I was not pleased with. Yes I went on a rant and it was not pretty. The word sucks and never use them again came out. Which I was being honest . I was shocked by what happened next. The store I was complaining about contacted me via my YouTube channel. I guess they want to correct the issue. They posted this long comment apologizing for the issues I encountered. They gave me contact information to give them a chance to make it better.
I have to say I was beyond shocked. I do not have a big following on this channel. I have one video that did get 5,000 + hits. I have no idea why that video is popular and what I did right. The others are not popular at all. Not even the video talking about this chain store. When they emailed me I had a total of four hits. It had only been up three days.
Well I contacted them via email, as they requested. They are going to get back to me in the next 24 hours. I am very curious what will happened next. I will kept you posted. The powers of social media. More videos will be going up with any problems encounter from now on. You can believe that!!! 🙂
