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!

Not In My Best Mood Today. It Has Been an Emotional Roller Coaster Today

As most of you may have read my previous blog to this one about the Manner less society today, that did hit quite a few peoples nerves. I know I received some comments that were not so pleasant to read, and from that, I have been having a really crummy day. I am not trying to be condescending and ranting about a certain issue, but I felt the need to express it. I see so many manner less people, that it has become unbelievable. If someone does not speak up to talk about it and to write about it? Then who will? I want to see a world of people that will be pleasant to each other, to be nice, to be polite, and respectful to one another and have a world of peace, happiness, positivity and love. If messages like the one I wrote does not get spread around and if etiquette is not taught to people at very young age, people will grow up to be unfriendly and impolite. I mean I did not mean for it to sound harsh which I did not, but I needed to say it. It has been on my mind to write about this topic for quite sometime now and you know its just so hard to bring up topics like this without someone or some people writing distasteful comments back to me.

I know that everybody has their own opinions and everything and you are entitled to have that, and I know that blogging is something that not everyone will agree with what is said and what is written, and sometimes it will hit a huge nerve on someone, but it is all about the blogging journey and not everything will be perfect all the time. I have been in a terrible mood all day and maybe I should not have brought up that subject, but In my heart and in my soul I really had to come out with it. I wrote a blog about not keeping things bottled up inside, and today I am taking my own advice to write about something I should have done a long time ago. I am not here to point fingers at anybody and I am not here to cause grief and trouble, but I believe in freedom of expression and freedom of speech. I want to send out these messages to people, I want to make a better world for us all to live in and to tolerate each other, to be nice, kind and do great things. Life is too short. People need to realize that the world is ours and we need to take care of it and take care of one another and have a great world.

We do live in a great world, but it is our actions that speak louder than words. Today I was very close to not blogging today and keeping today blank, but I didn’t have it in me to stop. I cannot stop. Not now. Blogging is part of my life and and writing on subjects like this is something very important to me. If people don’t speak out about something than who will? You know what I am trying to get at and say? I am talking to everybody in all age groups. I am not just pointing the finger in certain age groups. manner less people come of all ages. I really hope things change. I care too much for people.

About My Previous Blog – My Apologies If It Was Overwhelming For Some People

I would like to take today to apologize for my previous blog about what I wrote about the Illiterate Generation we live in Today. I just feel and from what I am seeing when I am out in public and everything, I see technology doing the thinking for people when it comes to basic math and everything and that is why I am so concerned and I had to touch base on this subject as why it is important to me. I mean there is a limit as to how much technology we use on a daily basis. I believe that I have right to express what I feel and what I have been witnessing. If I was not a concerned person about this subject, and if I didn’t genuinely care, I wouldn’t even have bothered writing such a blog, but I do care about this subject a lot as the new generation comes in and life is truly changing by day and sometimes life changes in a fraction of a second.

What my blogging passion is, is that I want to make a difference in this world and touch base on recent society, recent happenings, issues, and merely about certain subjects that need to be discussed and blogging is a universal language and we all learn from each other and express our feelings and the freedom of expression to subjects that need to be addressed such as my previous blog. My blogs are about positivity, optimism and touching base on important topics. I know that sometimes my writing needs improvement in terms of paragraphing and everything but this is the way I want to express my blogs, this is the way I learned it, and the way I feel. I never write things as an outline of what I want to talk about. It just comes naturally and I just start writing and writing. It just comes to my brain and boom its being written. Again I am sorry if I pushed a few buttons of people but I did warn people in my previous blog that its all meant in general and its all from my heart and soul and I am pouring my heart out into the blogs and the subjects I write.

I am just so passionate about blogging and I am so passionate about these subjects. My eyes were teary eyed just reading some of the comments that people left me that they were sort of attacking me in a way and it really got to me. I was in a crummy mood all day and tonight when I was gone out with friends, they had asked me what was wrong and what happened, I just didn’t want to say anything and I said oh don’t worry about it, just thinking about stuff. No big deal. I was just so stressed out today and you all bring valid and great points. I really never meant it in a way that I was pointing fingers at anybody, but I just had to speak the truth about technology and what it is doing. My friend is a teacher in elementary school and i have a few friends who are teachers and they told me about stories on kids that cannot go without a calculator or some sort of technology without even writing and holding a pencil or pen in their hand anymore and I keep hearing them and I said something must be done, I must write about this ASAP. People are so dependent on these gadgets and stuff, that people are going haywire to see the newest technology and want to be first in line to get it. That is all. that was my take on everything.

Again my apologies.

 

Working on Getting People’s Links on My Favourite Links Page.

Hi All! I have started putting links to people’s blogs and links on my Favourite Link’s page. However It may take a bit of time as I have a lot of them to post up. It may take about a week or┬ámore for me to put them all up, but don’t worry, your blog will be there to see. I have put quite a few of them on the page today. I believe in recognizing, and appreciating other people and their blogs and each persons blog deserves recognition and every blogger is different, has different perspectives on life and things, and people have different motives, different interests and all that is wonderful. Each person is different in this world and likes different things. I respect that very much and each person is entitled to his/her opinions, and freedom of expression. I strongly believe everyone has a place in this world and I believe in making a difference in ones life and recognizing them, and putting them on the blogging map. I am dedicated to people and I appreciate people for who they are and I have come across some really wonderful blogs and wonderful people and that should be celebrated. People who work hard day in and day out to keep their blogs alive, to keep people in the know and updated, is something so incredible. All of us have a gift and were talented in some way, shape and form and its something I love about the Humanity and Society of this world.
