Social media experiences are only as good as what you put into them. Say for instance you just post status updates like, " Can't wait for the
weekend! " or share links like " How to catch the perfect one night stand ". While we all want to say these things, upon further inspection they
share absolutely NO useful data with the rest of the human populace. Now flip that and say you post updates about, say, enviromental causes you're a
part of, or clothing drives to help the less fortunate. Due to you sharing when the local blood drive time is, they notice that they have a few more
people show up to give blood. Then they start sharing that sort of information with their friends, and it just keeps snowballing.
Of course you can still organize get togethers of your friends ( and the fact that you can share different things with different circles is one reason
I - adore - Google + ) and update people on your social life, but it should be done in moderation.
Social media is an awesome way to share different views with people who may not have any other way to hear about them, but we do need to practice
moderation in acessing their features and intergrating them into our lives.
I hope I have given you something to chew your mental cud on!
