Organic. Free Range. Buzz words? Sure. But do they matter to social media? More than you know!
- WHY DOES THIS ARTICLE MATTER? It’s about YOU!
This article matters because ultimately social media is about YOU! Because all of this interactivity is not just fun and games, it has changed our generation in dramatic ways. For example think about how often you “leak” important news in your life onto your wall, or tweet, instead of meeting all you friends in person to share exciting news? New relationships, break ups, trips and vacations, funny memes, etc., are all shared, discussed and saved forever on this network. This system of life via digital scrapbooking, discussion and relationship, comprises what we all know as “social media” and it is here to stay! The question becomes; how do you personally use the platform of social media, and why?
