Conundrum…

I find myself in a conundrum about social media. There are so many factors as to how people use it.

It can relieve or add to loneliness. It can be used to connect with friends or family that you lost track of. On the other hand, it allows people that you would prefer not have in your life to eventually pop up!

People use it to boost their business/reputation or to tear down someone else’s.

Families and friends use it to keep in touch in a most convenient way or to tear those relationships apart behind a wall we know as the internet.

Let the social media connection (texts included) we are blessed with, allow us to build up one another and not be a negative force. It’s your choice.

Last but not least, remember to make actual phone calls and don’t forget to make eye contact whenever the occasion arises! It happens more often than we might realize!

Best wishes,

Sherry

F.F.E.

F.F.E….
Also known as…
Friendly Facebook Etiquette….

1. No FB Family Feuding Ever!!
2. If someone posts something that they feel hits their mood at the time does not mean that they want controversy. (Just sharing a feeling or a picture. Why get angry)?
4. This is supposed to be a modern day avenue to keep in touch with loved ones. We don’t have to write letters or even make phone calls anymore …kinda sad really.
5. It wasn’t supposed to be this way!! 

Once again,

To Connect or Not to Connect??…That IS the Question!!

Maybe the question should be….HOW to Connect?

 

To Connect, or Not to Connect?? That IS the Question.

Hi Everyone!

I pose this question because I have seen many different facets of, this fairly recent phenomenon, known as, “Social Media”.

Years ago, when MySpace was the place to be, my daughter, and many of her friends, called it a friendship/relationship destroyer!!  I saw it in action!  However, I had the most unlikely encounter from a stranger that found me on MySpace years ago, who wired me $500 to help me with repairs to my house!! I was frightened. I had only mentioned a cracked window in my son’s room. He somehow got my zip code through ??? When I asked, “Why”?, he simply stated he was having a good day!  Wow!  I haven’t spoken to him since.

I see Fathers and Sons, Mothers and Daughters, Friends, etc…enjoying a meal at a restaurant  together, yet NEVER making eye contact. They are too busy making “contact” with others, on their respective mobile devices, to enjoy one another’s company! However, if you take pictures of the food you eat, there are apps you can download to upload those pics to support charities for the hungry!!

I’ve witnessed FB family feuding (so silly) and FB family reunions (wonderful)!!

Many people get ripped off through Internet Scams while others make Fortunes through Internet Driven Businesses!!

It’s up to you to Connect, or Not to Connect! Make the most of it!!

Most importantly….Don’t forget EYE Contact and REAL hugs and kisses!!! XOXO!

Sincerely,

Sherry
