This photograph is of our private family group on Facebook. It’s sole purpose is to reminisce about old memories and to share stories about my grandfather after he passed away. I also use Facebook to share pictures of good times I’ve had with friends.
Sometimes a thought will pop into my mind and I will post a status to see what everyone else thinks. I will occasionally use Facebook chat.
The only other account I have is Pinterest. I’ve only had it for about a month and I’m begging to feel as though is it less of a social networking site and more of a sharing site. I haven’t ever talked to anyone on Pinterest. It is more about photography than communication. I use Pinterest as more of a bookmark for things that I would like to look at again. I don’t have a smart phone so I access all of these sites with my laptop. I do feel as though I waste too much time on these sites and not enough time doing “real” things with my “own” life as Sherry says in the Ted video. I feel like while being “social” through these sites leads to a disconnect socially in real life.
