Keep reading. It will all make sense soon.

It’s easy to go cross-eyed looking at the web of social media options and trying to understand how to use each one of them.

Twitter just looks like a sea of @ symbols and # signs while every time you think you have a handle on Facebook the layout changes again.

Don’t over think it.

When in doubt, remember the immortal acronym, K.I.S.S. — Keep It Simple Stupid –because it’s just as confusing for your listeners as it is for you.

Just focus on making it easy for your friends and followers to engage and play along with you online.

For example, I saw this post on my friend (and former broadcast student of mine turned professional airtalent) April Haukreid’s Facebook page:

Pick the month you were born:

  • Jan – I ate
  • Feb – I screwed
  • Mar – I ran naked with
  • April – I smoked with
  • May – I ran shirtless with
  • June – I beat
  • July – I cuddled with
  • Aug – I needed
  • Sept – I shot
  • Oct – I shanked
  • Nov – I stabbed
  • Dec – I slept with

Pick the day (number) you were born on

  • 01 – my lover
  • 02 – a dog
  • 03 – homer
  • 04 – A homo
  • 05 – a condom
  • 06 – A toothbrush
  • 07 – a hippie
  • 08 – a glass of milk
  • 09 – a porn star
  • 10 – Paris Hilton
  • 11 – the trojan man
  • 12 – a teletubby
  • 13 – the kool-aid man
  • 14 – some crack heads
  • 15 – an easter egg
  • 16 – a pot head
  • 17 – a bum
  • 18 – a stripper
  • 19 – a horse
  • 20 – a homeless guy
  • 21 – a drink
  • 22 – my best friend
  • 23 – the cookie monster
  • 24 – my boy friend
  • 25 – a bowl of cereal
  • 26 – a golf ball
  • 27 – a bag of weed
  • 28 – a french fry
  • 29 – your mom
  • 30 – your grandma
  • 31 – a mop

Pick the color of shirt you are wearing:

  • White – because hoes keep stealing my tacos
  • Black – because I’m sexy like that
  • Pink – Because I’m good in bed
  • Red – because I have AMAZING boobs
  • Brown – because I had to
  • Polka Dots – because I hate my life
  • Purple – because I’m gay
  • Gray – because I love marijuana
  • Other – because I have double D’ s
  • Green – because I love to snort cocaine.
  • Orange – because I smoked crack
  • Turquoise – because I have a noodle in my nose
  • Blue – because I’m a pimp
  • Shirtless – because I’ve got abs
  • Yellow – because I didn’t like the way he/she looked at me
  • Gold – because the people in my head were banging
  • Tan – because I’m a soldier boy/gi

While the choices may not be right for your format or show, the idea is simple and makes it easy for listeners to play along.

For the record, “I cuddled with the Kool-Aid man because hoes keep stealing my tacos.”

Damn those hoes! I like tacos.
