Social Networking~ Are you Addicted?
Everyone seems to be doing it.
You are doing it…because yes…you have got caught up in it…
Whether you are working in an office…
….waiting tables at a busy restaurant…
or at a stop light somewhere in your city!
You are updating your status or checking on someone else’s status!
You are either doing it for fun or are doing it to make some money!
Social Networking is not just for the computer geeks and nerds.
…Nope, it is for all of us!
We are of all ages…even my mother is now on Face Book!
So, from teenagers to Senior Citizens, we can be found updating somewhere at sometime…
On the throne, on the couch, in the car, in the elevator, in the grocery store, in church, while we run, bike, camp…oh yes, we update everywhere.!
Even celebrities, update on the red carpet, while they are in the studio, while they are eating dinner…
There is even this guy who sits with his grandfather and Tweets S##T, his grandfather says!
Year’s ago My Space was the biggest trend for our teenagers and then it seemed all ages seemed to be utilizing the website for connecting with others, advertising or blogging.
Interesting fact…..Blogging…hum? Seems that shouldn’t come up in red or in my spell check, considering how popular the word is today…
Maybe it will be a new word for 2010.
So, when I finally decided to get a MySpace, I was informed by my teenager that I was too old!…to have a Myspace and that it was embarrassing for her!
Nevertheless, I did create a profile….
The next social networking sight I found was Netlog.com.
Which I soon discovered was a “lets see how many people I can flirt with or hook up with! The content there did not appeal to me.
Then, last year sometime a friend of mine told me to find her on FaceBook.
I honestly didn’t know what she was talking about, but my curiosity got the best of me and I logged on to create a profile.
…I soon became addicted
…and then last Spring my daughter told me about Twitter.
Well, that was 800 followers ago! And before Wine Glass Girl was created!
Interesting Fact ~A professional blogger found me on Twitter and noticed that I had a knack with words and well…..
….this is the rest of the story.
Social Networking has changed my life in so many ways.
I have been reunited with friends that I have met over the years of my life.
…And the friendships I have made with via Twitter and Facebook are some of the most special people, I have ever met.
Well…I haven’t really met them…but I can see their heart in their words and there a few extra special friends…that I have been blessed to hear the warmth and passion in their voices.
So I’ am thankful for social networking for giving me this chance to share with others.
The addiction is controllable for now but I do foresee in the future a possible stay in Rehab for TwitterHolics and FaceBook addicts’.
I apologize to my family if I am addicted. Countless hours updating and checking out profiles, uploading pictures, is this a trend, I hope not.
In the meantime…In the Entertainment world….
I hear there is a movie being made about social networking and I also found this talented artist that has given us a song about our social networking addictions! So click on Kelley James name and check out his music, Im sure he will become a huge hit with this song!
Happy New Years Everyone!
Make sure update your status before you drink too much!
