KEEPING UP WITH SOCIAL MEDIA!!

THE FACES WHEN I TELL MY NIECES AND, NEPHEWS THE INTERNET WASN’T AROUND WHEN I WAS THEIR AGE, OR WHEN PEOPLE SEE ME WRITING A LETTER. OR PLAYING A NORMAL BOARD GAME.

I AM GUILTY OF USING CERTAIN SOCIAL MEDIA OUTLETS DAILY. THE ONES THAT I USE THE MOST ARE FACEBOOK AND, YOUTUBE!! I DID HAVE A TWITTER ACCOUNT BEFORE, A FEW YEARS AGO, BUT I FOUND IT POINTLESS. I ALSO HAD A MYSPACE ACCOUNT BEFORE, BUT THAT IS NOW CONSIDERED ANCIENT HISTORY BASICALLY, AND I HAVEN’T GONE ON THEIR IN EONS. I AM FAMILIAR WITH VINE, TUMBLR, FLICKR, INSTAGRAM; BUT I DO NOT HAVE ACCOUNTS FOR THOSE SOCIAL SITES. ALSO DON’T JUDGE ME, BUT I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT REDDIT IS!! MY FACEBOOK PAGE IS PRIVATE, ONLY MY FRIENDS AND, FAMILY ARE ALLOWED TO SEE MY PICTURES, AND ANYTHING THAT I MAY POST. I DON’T BELIEVE THEIR ARE ANY PRIVACY SETTINGS ON YOUTUBE. YOUTUBE HAS A AGE LIMIT; MEANING YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO BE 18 AND OVER, TO VIEW CERTAIN VIDEOS THAT MAY BE CONTAIN GRAPHIC OR CONTAIN ADULT CONTENT. INSTAGRAM I KNOW ALSO HAS PRIVACY SETTINGS ON THEIR SITE AS WELL. I MADE MY CHOICE TO HAVE FACEBOOK TO STAY IN TOUCH WITH FAMILY. I DO NOT NEED TO SOCIALIZE ON SEVERAL SITES TO DO SO IN MY OPINION. THE SAME PICTURES THEY WILL POST ON INSTAGRAM GETS POSTED, OR RE-POSTED ON FACEBOOK. I CHOOSE TO HAVE A YOUTUBE ACCOUNT, BECAUSE OF ALL THE DIVERSE KINDS OF VIDEOS YOU CAN FIND. FROM OLD T.V SHOW EPISODES, TO HOW-TO-VIDEOS. ITS TRULY AMAZING THE EXTENT OF VIDEOS THAT’S ON THEIR. AFTER READING MS.BOYD’S ARTICLE I FEEL THAT SOCIAL MEDIA CAN BECOME VERY ADDICTIVE, AND IT SHOULD BE TAKEN A LITTLE BIT MORE SERIOUSLY. YOU WANT TO BE AWARE OF HOW YOU DISPLAY YOURSELF TO THE WORLD ONLINE, BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY ITS REALLY THE WORLD THAT CAN POSSIBLY BE WATCHING YOU. THE INTERNET HAS TAKEN OVER SO MUCH, THAT NOTHING IS DONE IN PERSON ANYMORE. THE INTERNET TO ME IS A GIFT , AND A CURSE. SOCIAL MEDIA IS THE SAME WAY. SOCIAL MEDIA CAN BE USED AS A WEAPON IF YOUR NOT CAREFUL. SOCIAL MEDIA. AND CYBER BULLYING HAS HURT , AND DAMAGED MANY OF FAMILIES AS WELL. MUST KEEP SAFE WHILE ONLINE.

ADDICTION. LOL COMPUTER SOCIAL MEDIA, THE INTERNET PERIOD. IT WILL CAUSE YOU TO SEE THINGS!!!! LOL
