Facebook kindly reminded me today that I first joined 10 years ago. Wow! A decade, duh but seriously, a decade. Then and now I’m amazed at the ability it gives us to connect, share and often divide.
Many say that people consistently post happy, everything is fine, bla bla posts. I disagree. After a 10 years of being on FB and raising amazingly intelligent, digitally integrated children who actually do have the best posts, not everything is always peaches and cream.
Yet, many needs are met: people connect; emotions have an outlet; children are rescued; animals are adopted; emergencies are blasted and even love happens.
I do realize the dangers and advise all to safe guard your children, family, and friends from toxic social media outlets.
That being said, I can attest to having breast cancer, deaths, a million reason to complain, I have been able to turn to a digital community of incredible souls who support me when some barely know me. Those far from me can send me a digital hug. Those nearby pray for me. What a blessing!
Perhaps my perspective is rainbows and butterflies because I hear so many complaints about this & that with social media. My perspective is the more you can share love – the joyful vibes, posts, jokes, successes, goals, trips, love, pets, and kids – the better. Keep them coming.
Lastly, realize FB is now integrated with Instagram which opens even more doors. They have free webinars this week updating changes. Enjoy the ride of learning social media and it’s benefits. ©️
