At Almost 11 years that I have been on Facebook, I can honestly say that I have made some great friends through this social media outlet through groups, pages, mutual friends and more. Some, I have met in person for the first time in the last 6-7 years. It was a special moment and we have created some fabulous memories and hopefully we will reunite again soon, however, there are some of my dear Facebook friends, I still have yet to meet. Sometimes I ask myself this question if I am ever going to meet them too? God willing it will happen and to finally see someone face to face instead of looking at pictures and communicating through screens. I am so blessed on great people from all over the world that has a special place in my list, my heart, mind and soul. Thank you for making the world smaller, but hopefully, it will become smaller at the moment we meet physically. I want to make this happen.
Thank you to Social Media for uniting great people to communicate with. Without social media, never knew some people existed, never knew how lovely people can be. Of course being careful all the time. You just feel that gut instinct by the way; someone communicates with you, you feel it in their tone and everything when they write, what the person posts and everything. You automatically feel this closeness or this instant comfort when you being communicating and creating bonds with people. That personality of a person shines and you feel like you have known them for so many years.
It is always good to find people you can relate to, who you have stuff in common with and those who just understand you and so much more.
However, there will always be some people who are not what they say they are and of course; you have to exercise caution at the same time, but you will know. You can sense it. Technology is great at bringing the world of people together but never forget who is near you, beside you and those who are physically with you as well and those who you share your life with. They say that the more further you are, the more sweeter you become, but don’t forget your friends and loved ones who are right there with you. That is super important to remember.
So very true. Social media is great but it’s easy to get caught up in it and forget those who are right in front of us. Great timely post.
I like how it allows me to stay in touch and ‘connected’ with friends who have moved away. It’s nice to be able to remain in touch without the limits of distance being a factor.
I really enjoy the connectedness I ‘feel’ with those in my Social Media Networks. God has allowed our minds to touch and those who believe will see one another in heaven. Great article and well written. Blessings to you and yours! Marie
I love social media like you. I have many friends overseas and FB helps me keep in track with their lives. But I cannot embrace all social media – I just started using Snapchat and have to say – it’s not for me. Seems very silly but I have understood that MANY people absolutely love it.
