Why I love social media

October 03, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

First off, let me say, I am not a social girl. At least that's what I've always been told, so that's what I tell myself. On a regular basis. It may or not be true, which is why I love social media. I do much better interacting with people at a distance than I do up close and personal. Frankly, and this is hard to admit, but people scare me. I'm a super sensitive girl and take pretty much everything personally. Whether it is meant for me or not, I'm like a big sponge of emotions. I cried when my third grade teacher yelled at our class for misbehaving. I wasn't misbehaving, but I took it very personally - so much so, she had to pull me out into the hallway and explain that it was the class as a whole, not just me. 

 

So when I discovered the internet way back when I thought it was the coolest thing ever. Interaction without people actually knowing you! I could be whoever I wanted! So I decided to be one of the cool kids. One of those people who talked to others, who didn't shy away from people. Someone who interacted and formed relationships and friendships...someone I wasn't in real life, even though maybe I wished I was. 

 

Anyway, I love the internet, and not only for the social aspect of actually conversing with people, but also for the sharing of information. As a visual person I love pinterest, and also Facebook. Through my work with Blanket Statements I have joined up with many, many, many people and organisations who I might otherwise have never known. And I absolutely love most everything they post. At some point it all becomes relevant.

 

Take this photo I saw posted this morning. This is something I probably would never have seen or known about except for Facebook. And it is super cool! Don't you think? Street art. Love it!
