The types of social media I engage in is youtube, Instagram, facebook, snapchat, and groupme. I do not post youtube videos, but i have an account just to subscribe to channels that interest me. My Instagram account is private. I use instagram as a way to share moments of my life with my followers and to see what is going on in todays world. Most of my followers are friends, family, and people who share a common interest with me. My facebook account is also private. I do not add random people. My facebook is to stay in touch with friends and as a way to contact people if phones are not possible. Snapchat is something I just got into. My friends and I send goofy pictures or videos to one another. The plus side of it is that once you view a snapchat someone sends you, you cannot view it again. Groupme is just a way to contact people or set up plans. We make group chats and add certain people in it depending on what the group it far. It comes in hand when you have to do group projects for school and you are trying to contact your members all at once. All my accounts on social media is private. It is only viewable to those that i chose to share my business with. Basically all my social media accounts are for a way to contact me or others.

This article is great for people who carelessly post anything up online. There is such thing as having a healthy online life.
