We had the most fun fourth.......
but the FIFTH of July has us like whoa. A lot of crying, tired kids around here. ha!
So I wanted to talk social media. I'm curious what are you using and what do you love the most?
I started out with Facebook and have always loved it but then I got into twitter for a while. I lost my love for Facebook briefly when I decided twitter was my very favorite.
I still think Twitter is a great source of news for me - but I rarely every look at it anymore. Do you use twitter as much as you once did?
Then I discovered Instagram - and it still reigns now as my favorite. I love the pictures and story telling. It's like a super quick blog post. I think IG killed blogging for a lot of people which I hate but I love scrolling through and seeing pictures of people and feeling like I'm keeping up with all of my "friends".
And then recently, I tried out snap chat. (I'm mrskellystamps) I always thought Snap Chat was just for teenagers. But I guess like most social media forms that start out with just teens - the middle aged people move in and soon it won't be popular with teens anymore. I read it is the most used social media now. It's hard to find people to follow and I'm still figuring it out but now that I'm following a few people I know - I sort of love following their "stories".
Are there are other social media sites you use regularly?
I know social media gets a bad rap. Yes - like anything else - it can be good or bad. Ice cream is something that is so good but if you mis use it - eat it for three meals a day - it will quickly not be good for you. Social media can cause comparison issues and self esteem problems and jealousy - it all depends on who you follow and what you choose to look at. I also think it can be used as a source of encouragement and to lift others up. What are your thoughts on that?
Next we are going to discuss Podcasts. Because I have really gotten into those lately. :-)
