I use social media for the following reasons:
- Stay connected with family, friends, and school mates.
- To get quick information
Social media is also great for entertainment purposes. I'm often fascinated by the funny status posted by other Facebook users. It gives me a good laugh and share it with my friends at work and school. It is a great place to express yourself and get an argument going on a particular topic. Though, sometimes it gets heated and becomes very serious, it is funny how two (or more) strangers can start arguing on a topic.
I am in love with YouTube. Being a visual learner and not being very hands on, it is a great tool to help me on small tasks. I have used a YouTube video to help me replace my car's headlight bulb. Also, I have used YouTube videos as pat of my presentations in school.
Life without social media is scary! I have often tried not accessing my Facebook account and/or YouTube, but I have not succeeded. I don't know what I would do to without social media. Even though I was very hesitant to create a Facebook account in the beginning. In fact, I didn't even create my own Facebook account. Two of my friends created it for me, and sent me the information. I didn't know how to react at the time, but I now thank them for creating the account for me.
