Are you a social cookie? What kind are you???

Whether it be Facebook (personal profile), Facebook Business page, Linkedin, Twitter or YouTube.. How are you being Social… That will determine what type of “Social” Cookie you are.  Remember Social Media is called “Social” for a reason.  When you are being social what type of posts do you create and how do they influence others???

Chocolate Chip

They only post comments, photos and videos about their family and respond to their family members.  They also tend to have a smaller friend list.

Peanut Butter

These are the smooth talkers also known as the influencer.  These are the people that when they post doesn’t matter what it is, it is worth listening to.  I am sure you have some you can’t wait to see what they have to post. I would consider Zig Ziglar one of these influencers.

Oatmeal Raisin

These are the people that are well balanced.  They share a little of everything and not too much of one thing.  These individuals would be considered givers.  Usually community minded.


These are the individuals that say sweet things  and make all the great compliments to and about others.  They are an encourager. John Maxwell refers to them as a lid lifter…


These individuals post all the humorous things.. from funniest home videos to the funniest jokes and quotes.  The kind of person you want to connect with as they make you feel better with humor.


These are the individuals who are sour about everything.. If the sun is shinning it is too bright… They tend to be the complainers, however they also challenge you to look at things from a different angle.

Ginger Snap:

These are the people that snap to decisions and post comments they wish they hadn’t or shouldn’t.

Care to share what cookie you are??? Are you more than one kind?   Know any of these cookies??  Look forward to hearing your thoughts on this or maybe you have another type of cookie you would like to add to the list….
