A to Z – S is for Social Media

Social Media –

Not a day goes by so I see someone complaining about social media, my mum for an example hates it and I can see why she does, she doesn’t agree with ‘sharing your life’ but I don’t think she understands that you don’t need to share everything you do online.

I use Facebook for family members who I don’t see often, it’s easier to share photos of the kids to their great nan on Facebook than it is just waiting until we see her.

With twitter I talk to new friends who I’ve found through blogging, some of who I hope to one day meet and talk in person with

And of course Instagram, which is full of inspiration, who doesn’t like Instagram?

Perhaps it’s because I’m a bit younger than her, I’ve been using the net for most of my life and I remember a time before social media and honestly nothing has changed, besides from the fact you couldn’t randomly tweet that celeb you sets your trousers on fire, I do sort of miss a time before social media, everything seemed less stressful and carefree..

….apart from the mad time of being in someone’s ‘top 10’ on MySpace…

But without social media, I would probably feel very lonely, which considering how everyone used to view the internet back ‘in the day’ isn’t a sad thing, I’m grateful for all my friends who I’ve made through the bright little electronic gadget in my pocket.

Until next time

  1. I’m half half when it comes to SM. I love sharing beauty ramblings and chatting to like minded beauty lovers as well as finding a bunch of new blogs to follow and meeting people from across the world. But i keep my personal life completely separate and never share anything on any platform.

  2. Social media is used for my “me” time being that I’m a SAHM of two kids lol. I don’t have any other adult interaction (besides when my boyfriend gets home from work). But until then I need to catch up on blogging and everything in between!

  3. I feel the exact same, I love social media so much but it can be so draining and can really effect your self-confidence and self-esteem! I’ve met some amazing people through social media but at the same time I wish I could turn myself of from it sometimes!

  4. I think Social Media is great, especially for someone like me who works on a creative business, it is crucial to be connected online. I understand when my mom also says she doesn’t like to share too much but looking on the bright side we get to know so many people this way! x
