How I think about posting on social media
Would I want to say this / see this post...?
...in a newspaper section (news, analysis, op-ed, advice, amusements, ads, announcements & notices): post public
...in a newspaper were it news, but it's not: post unlisted
...at open mic night: post followers only
...in a surveillance agency's files on me as a telephone transcript: post direct message.
*For me, social media == Mastodon. I don't actively engage with other platforms anymore.
