How I Use Social Media and How It Doesn’t Use Me

I didn’t grow up with the Internet. It became a household thing when I was in my mid twenties. And it was dial-up. Remember that? It evolved quickly and gave birth to the new ubiquitous beast called social media. I didn’t “get” MySpace since I felt creepy looking at other peoples’ profiles. Today subsequently “creeping” is now a completely acceptable term meaning that someone was looking at your profile. I did join Facebook in the early years and found it incredibly useful to share photos with friends and family without having to see them in person. Was that a good thing? Of course it got out of hand with people I barely knew in high school or met once through a friend at an event. Even people from work started “friending” me.
