Segregating your vegan posts doesn't sound very positive, does it? Wouldn't that make it difficult for other vegans to connect with you? Stay with me. There are actually some very good reasons to do this. For one thing, you will save all your non-vegan friends from having to put up with your constant vegan postings. Of course, that's not all.
Ease of contact and communication
Keeping your vegan posts segregated on social network sites can make it easier for your future vegan friends to find and connect with you.
Remember when I talked about liking vegan Facebook pages and joining vegan Facebook groups to find friends?
How about making your own vegan Facebook page or group to attract other vegans?
It's not as difficult as it would seem. Facebook pretty much walks you right through the process. If you can't figure it out on your own, try using these Facebook help links for creating groups and creating pages.
Of course, you can do this without segregating your posts if you wish.
What else? Well, depending on the type of page you make, you can attract mostly vegans like you. We're all different, after all.
If you're mostly focused on finding great vegan food, create a recipe exchange group or page.
If you're an outraged vegan, create a page where vegans can vent and dissent.
If your focus is on compassion and positive action, reflect that on your page or group.
You decide how your page or group is run. You can even make a set of rules for group members to follow. That way, you only attract vegans with similar views.
Another thing you might try is making a Facebook list for vegan friends only. This way, you can share your applicable posts with only those people who share your convictions.
Summing it up:
Segregation may seem to be an ugly word, but it can be a positive way to connect with other vegans, no matter how you choose to use it.
