Social Media
 
Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, Instagram.....JM.
It's everywhere we look and we are all connected in one way or another.
So, do you love it or hate it?

As much as I love it all I also hate it. I don't mind being connected. I kind of feel all in moderation though.

I love it, personally. We live far from family and my closest friend, so FB is such an easy way to keep in touch with everyone and to share pictures. Also, being a SAHM, it's an easy way for me to feel connected to others.

I like being connected; I keep in touch with a lot of old friends from my childhood who live in another country. And then keep connected with current friends/relatives.

What I don't like is some people's drama - some people are too public about their personal life/business and it gets old.

It has been an amazing tool for communication in our family. Most of us live all over the place. This has allowed me and family along with friends get a glimpse into each others daily lives. Where as before we only caught up on holidays.

Julia, I agree. The drama is the downside for me.

I like keeping up with old friends. Without fb, I'd never talk to them. I can do without the drama though. You gotta take the good with the bad :)

I don't participate in social media. It's not like I think it's all bad either, but I like not being a part of it. Everyone that I really want to keep in touch with I do via email or blogs.

Of course, if JM counts, then I do participate somewhat. :)

I think it is helpful to keep in touch with people, but it can be a way to waste time for me rather than being productive.

I like the means of keeping in touch and getting to know others (JM) through it. I tend to ignore the drama. I also try to remember that most people only put the good stuff out there (myself included) and nobody has a perfect life despite what it looks like on FB (or other sites).
