Keeping up with social media

As the years go by our world evolves into a a place where being tech savvy seems mandatory. I can remember being a freshman in high school when we went from MSN (now Windows Live) Messenger and AOL messenger to Xanga (which didn’t last too long) and then MySpace.  MySpace was the "cool thing" for a little while, but only  an amateur version of what was to come.

 Facebook was then set up for  college students (at first) to use. Not only is Facebook good for networking, but it allows us to keep in touch. I like Facebook because it is a good source for finding and posting photos.  A downside is all of the whiney and opinionated people .... sometimes it can get a little out of hand.

I have entered the world of Twitter and at first I wasn't  the biggest fan. However, the more I use it and familiarize myself with it, the more I enjoy it. You can update as often as you feel with random thoughts. You also don’t end up with an enormous amount of friends on your page if you don't want them. With Twitter someone can follow you and you don’t have to follow them back. 

Our social media will be forever evolving because we live in a world where people can’t stay off of the computer and they constantly have to know what is going on in everyone’s lives.
