It All Depends

by Diana

For me Social Media helps me to keep in touch with my family each day. I have not lost my old habits of calling them and I don't want to, either. I love to hear my mom's voice every day. It gives me reassurance that she is doing well, I enjoy sharing our love, and more. I use WhatsApp to hear about the rest of my family every day but a phone call is always at my fingertips. Facebook on the other hand... I don't have it anymore. It actually irritates me when I see my friends and their children communicating through it, even to say "I'll call you tonight." I don't think it is a good idea to lose privacy in the family or the human touch for the sake of social media. Social Media has gotten a lot of people in trouble; many have lost their job due to lack of control or wisdom. In conclusion Social Media could be a great feature depending on the person or business behind it.
