Social media is used for many reasons. You can offend or be offended. Sell your personal stuff or your business products. Continually complain
about everything and everybody even though you may not have your facts right. Read and add to rumors to the point that it no longer resembles the
truth. Promote your religious beliefs. Let the world know what you had for dinner complete with pictures. Write about your most personal problems
that before this media you would have never told a living soul. Express your personal views on every conceivable subject because you have the
right to, then get angry when someone disagrees and points out you are wrong. You can also share photos of the exciting trip you were just on. Ask
questions and usually get a reply from helpful people. Complement someone on a job well done. Receive helpful information about what’s going on
in the community. And the list goes on.
My question is this. What kind of person are you? Do you live for every opportunity to post something negative? Or do you look for the good in a
person or situation then add your encouraging thoughts? Do you only concentrate on the bad things in life? Or do you prefer to stay upbeat and
start a conversation about history that benefited the world or your home town. Do you write about helping a person or family in need? Have you
thought about starting a community project that would make a positive difference for others?
Yes, social media can be used for many reasons. How do you use it?
