What Is Social Media To You? What Is Social Media To Me?

In this day in age and in modern society, social media is at an all time high. Most of us in the world are connected through some social media website whether its twitter, Facebook, pinterest, tumblr, WordPress, Google+, Blogger, Blogspot, MySpace, Hi5, and so many more websites out there to cater our social media, communications needs. Now social media can be used to boost business, advertising ones self, giving tips, advising people, about a hobby, society, issues, subjects, technology, and so much more. We are all in an interface of social media in some form or another. E-mail is also a part of social media.

Now, what does social media mean to me? Well, social media to me means that I can share myself with the world, that I can give my points of views about certain topics and things that happen in the world, also about targeting important subjects leading to prevention of bullying, as well as other social issues that I need to address too. Were all on a social media front and it all depends on a persons individuality, feelings, freedom of expression on certain subjects, among everything else. To me, social media is such a great tool to have. You never know who might pop by your blog, you never know who is viewing your blog and it is always a mystery and if someone from a big company or somewhere sees the great work and time you put into something and if somebody sees something interesting, they will contact you to talk about it or offer you something so incredible. It’s happened to me numerous times. I love expressing myself and social media has given me such a boost to do it.

I am not afraid to share and give out my opinions as everyone is entitled to their own opinions and people should not be penalized for it, and its great to see people share different points of views on certain subjects that can be relative to them or just simply just discussing it. I love social media because I get to meet some really great people and I get to interact with so many different types of people all at once. Its incredible how social media has boomed especially the last 5-10 years. Social media sites began as far as Asian Avenue, Migente, Black Planet, Hi5, MySpace, Geocities from Yahoo, and so many other websites I can remember from back in the day and now Facebook and Twitter are on the rise. It is incredible how social media changes. Social media always has its ups and downs, but in the end were all in it, and social media is defined in so many ways and it depends on individuality on what it means to someone.

Now its all comes down to you, what does social media mean to you? What do you use it for? for communicating with loved ones? Finding different opinions from others? looking at pictures, finding information, learning, Interacting on the internet and constantly being updated with news? Do you find Social Media a rewarding and fun experience? I would love to hear from you on it.

All the best!

Twitter – A Social Network I am Enjoying

Since 2009, I joined the world of twitter. I gave it a lot of thought. Should I join the site or not? So I decided yes, I will join this awesome site. In 140 Characters or less you have to come up with status messages and retweets from others. I have developed a liking for twitter, and when you hashtag, and link to keywords, you can see other people on twitter tweeting about the same thing. Its a pretty cool website which I am enjoying a lot. A lot of my friends, a lot of celebrities, anchors, reporters, companies are on, and social networking is booming ever so quickly because of twitter and a lot of companies post job opportunities, travel agents, travel companies post discounts and specials, among being updated with your favourite shows, celebrities, sports, and everything else. Twitter has enlarged my social networking and networking has become so huge and so incredibly enhanced. Facebook and Twitter are booming. As well as pinterest. I remember when I first started using twitter. I never had too many followers in the beginning but then after I started to blog more, and after I started to really get to know twitter, the followers kept adding up and it was amazing. I wanted to expand my social networking and reach out to as many people as possible. I wonder how so many people get so lucky with thousands of followers. I am still wondering what you have to do, to become a successful twitter user with followers adding up and everything. I have always wondered what to do. I have looked online and there are so many websites of content on how to be successful in twitter, but I keep hitting a dead end because its just too much out there and I just can’t find a great website for great tips. Do you all have tips for a successful twitter account holder like me? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much!

If you have twitter please add my blog one called @TweeterTalin and my Professional Twitter @TalinOrfali — to get the latest updates, news, quotes and more.
