Which Social Media Cliché Are You?!

Windows Quiz 2You’ve seen them, you know you have. There is one on every friend list. They’re the selfie queens, the #Hashtag Hypers, Play-By-Playahs, bonafide members of the Meme Team, and the total N00bs, among others. If you read that list and didn’t recall at least one person, then you might consider taking Window’s “Which social media cliché are you?!” quiz because you may be it

Windows Quiz1

For a short 13 question quiz, it really captured the different personalities that I see on my friends list. This question about what you’re most likely to share is a prime example.

“Mommarazzi. Everyone thinks their kid is the cutest by mine actually is!”

While I don’t disagree with their statement, the results really hones in on one of the ways I use social media – especially Facebook. For me, Facebook is a place to connect with family. We’re spread across the state and across the country, so my family uses social media to watch my daughter grow. It probably doesn’t hurt that she also happens to be my favorite photography subject. So I wasn’t surprised at all by my results, but I felt there were a few other categories that could have easily applied to me as well. 

Personally, I get it. Everyone uses social media for different purposes, at different frequencies and in different ways. The Internet has become an integral part of our everyday lives, whether you’re a parent connecting with friends, a student applying to schools and jobs, or a teen simply sharing the latest celebrity gossip. It takes all kinds of kinds right?

But it also made me think about the things we put out into the world. It’s so easy to mindlessly give something a thumbs up, favorite, or share. Chances are, we may not even remember half of the interactions we make on a daily basis. More now than ever, the “digital footprint” we leave has a lasting impact on all ages and stages of life.

Now, Microsoft is encouraging you to #Do1Thing to take charge of your online reputation. Ensure that what you – or your kids – are doing online doesn’t cause harm to their reputation, virtual or otherwise.

  1. I try to be careful about what I put on my online profiles. I know that when looking for a nanny, my sister searched the applicants profiles. It really helped show who they were (pictures, posts, etc) and helped her determine who to hire and not to hire.

  2. I took the quiz and got the one upper. I don’t think that one is me at all. lol …. Maybe because my answers where mixed with my personal fb and my blogger ways. I do a lot of social media as a blogger but just for personal not much.

  5. What a fun quiz. I agree that we need to be aware of the digital footprint we are creating, not only for ourselves but for our kids as well. That is one of the reasons I don’t use my kids’ names online.

  6. One really has to to be careful with their online profiles. My husband is one who will check online profiles and if he sees drug picture references, gang signs, ect. the applications don’t even get considered.

  7. Quizzes like these are fun. It is important to pay attention to how one looks online because so many people search. It is not just jobs, it is also your kids’ friends at school, teachers and neighbors.

  8. This is something I have long been cognizant of. As someone who not only exists in this space as a blogger but as a professional as well, I have had job interviews where they reference my social profiles! It really does matter what you put out there.

  11. And this is why…my boys will not have an active Facebook nor my little 17 year old brother is not allowed to have one. For college recruiters and something that could haunt them for years to come. One stupid comment meant innocently enough could ruin it. Wish we took it more seriously as well. Great statistics thanks for sharing

  13. I always tell my kids (two who are grown, one who is a teen) to mind their online accounts like their parents, grandparents, and teachers are watching. At some point in their lives, those people probably are… :)

  14. Whenever I am on a social media, I am always either promoting something, or watching silly videos! I am scared to even take the test to see what my online reputation is LOL!

  16. What a true comment regarding the employers looking and people being responsible and thoughtful of their footprint. I tell this to my daughter all the time.

  17. That’s a good question. I am randomly all over the place, but I’d most likely be the one that shares all her blog posts lol
