What is your view in social media?
I like social media because I now have friends all around the world. I don’t have thousands of social media friends as some people do. I’ve learned quite a lot about different cultures from talking to my 30 or so friends. I have a painting I bought from a female artist friend in Greece (I’m in the USA, age 50, male, physically disabled). It’s just nice to interact with people whom I know I will never meet in person, but still, I like to hear their opinions. (I also am learning foreign languages by reading their posts.)
technology articles quite often and see plenty of authors attempt to dissect or describe the teenage audience, especially in regards to social media. However, I have yet to see a teenager contribute their voice to this discussion. This is where I would like to provide my own humble opinion.
For transparency, I am a 19-year-old male attending The University of Texas at Austin. I am extremely interested in social media’s role in our society as well as how it is currently evolving. Thus, the views I provide here are my own, but do stem from observation of not only my own habits but my peers’ habits as well.
