Take a nice long look. This is social media. How many of these do you have your hands in? One, two, maybe three? Are you a junkie and have 10 or 15?
Well lets see, for me I have (not all are active however) :
- AIM (inactive)
- Myspace (inactive)
- Google (use)
- Wikipedia (use)
20 is quite the number. Maybe not in comparison when you look at all those in the picture but think about it. 20 is a decent number. I guess it is true that social media and social platforms can take over your life.
I went through a phase my junior/senior year of college, tumblr was my game, I blogged relentlessly, during any free time I had. I couldn’t imagine going a day without getting on tumblr. Though the whole need to be on every day phase is over, I still enjoy checking it out once maybe twice a week.
Most everyone has at least one social media account. But it doesn’t cease to amaze me how much is out there, all the things you can do, how these things connect us with one another.
What are your thoughts?
How many different platforms are you a part of?
What do you think is in the future for social media?
