I am not a private person. I like sharing. I like communicating with others. I like getting to know new people. I would prefer doing all of the above face to face but for someone like me, a stay at home mom who lives in the suburbs, that would mean that these physical interactions would be limited to once or twice a week, should busy schedules and different lifestyles allow them to take place.
So, yes, I use social media to connect and stay in touch with friends and acquaintances.
These are a few of the main reasons I keep using them:
I found my dog Benny on facebook.
I reconnected with my friend from primary school who now lives abroad and we have managed to stay in touch thanks to Skype and facebook.
I have become a cinnamon bun freak thanks to Pinterest and an Akis Petretzikis groupie thanks to YouTube.
Last, but not least, I have become an Instagram lover, ever since my dad gave me an iPhone as a present a year and a half ago. And yes, I post pictures of happy moments because these are the ones that I would like to remember and hold on to when things around here get rocky. After all, for the daily struggles I have WordPress.
What about you? Are you pro or contra social media?
until next time
