Social Media Phenomenon
Social media has changed alot over the years and I have had my fair share of experiences on the internet. I didn’t grow up in the internet age so for me I had to pick and choose where I interacted with people. It is just so difficult to keep things private these days and social media really makes it hard to do that. When I started using social media, it began with Facebook in 2010 and it was so surprising to me how people can upload pictures and find friends and family members to connect to. I was able to connect to some family members and friends that any other way wouldn’t have happened. This was a great thing for me. Through Facebook, I found out about Instagram, which was a little different but the same concept. I like being able to share my life with friends and family but the fact is is that the people you connect with don’t always follow you and while you follow them. Twitter came next and I have to say that is my favorite because it is simple and you don’t have to spend alot of time on it. I use it to promote my blog and find others to follow.
Now that the platforms have gotten bigger, there is more unwanted ads, people like to bash others or stalk people and it is not family friendly anymore. I don’t get on it very often unless I am posting something about my children or on instagram about my blog. Too much anxiety involved.
My children on the other hand use other ways to socialize on the internet. They use videos and snaps, which is beyond my understanding.
The way I see it, social media in the next 10 years will become obsolete and people will go back to the old-fashioned way of communication-picking up the phone and calling people. Or making an attempt to travel to where their family and friends are.
