Effects of Social Media
How has social media affected your life/job/career/interests/relationships (positively or negatively)?
At the risk of sounding totally cliché, social media has completely changed my life. How, you may ask? Well, there’s a multitude of ways for me to answer this question, but the most obvious is to say that social media changed the way I connect to the world and people around me. Ten years ago I would’ve never imagined myself being able to upload a picture of the awesome food I just ate within seconds, or being “followed” by people in the most non-stalker-ish way possible. Needless to say, social media has created a whole new way to interact with the people around me. I can message, tweet, snap, and like as a means of communicating with someone next to me or on the other side of the world! For me, I love this new world of being socially connected with people. I love being able to upload pictures within seconds (making people incredibly jealous of the food I’m eating), or to send a ten second video myself to my best friend on the other side of the country. Needless to say, our generation has completely changed the way we interact the people and world around us; the possibilities are endless, and the best has yet to come!
