Social media

Up until recently I had heard of people blogging and tweeting but never really understood what the obsession was, and I could never understand why my sister was constantly on her pad keeping herself updated.  One day I decided to give it a go and I have to say I can see what the attraction is and I'm hooked on it.  If you get me and my sister together you won't get 2 words out of us! Some of you may now be saying that that's the problem, technology is killing conversation but its not, I believe these social networking sites are a way of people socialising even more. I love my blog page, I have only received 2 comments up to now but not to worry its early days, but when I press my audience tab it shows people in the UK, USA, Poland, France and Japan are looking at my blog page and that puts a smile on my face and encourages me to write more. I admit I don't fully understand how to get the best out of my blog page but I am certainly having fun in finding out. Over the next couple of days I'm even going to attempt to review a product including photos, watch this space! I love using twitter, I have been on it for just over a week and already gained 10 followers and I have had replies and retweets from Thomas Cook, Easy Jet, National Trust, Pembrokeshire Lottery, icklepicklex and ship mate, not bad for just over 1 week. Another one I like using is Facebook, again at first I used to just look on there and not comment but now I've got to grips with it you can't keep me off it!  The only thing I don't like about social media is the bullying, nasty comments and negativity that comes from it, this isn't what people should be using it for and that side of it needs to stop. Overall social media plays a big part in our lives and things like the ice bucket challenge shows us just how powerful it can be! Talking of ice bucket challenge,  have you done yours yet?
