Social Media is arguable one of the best tools for Millennial’ s of today… if you don’t know who a millennial is then I probably don’t know how to start with you.
I don’t know how it started for you guys but for me it started with the old ones. Hi5, Black Planet, and all those pen pal sites, I was excited at the thought of meeting people from different parts of the world outside my immediate environment, it was exhilarating.
I was obsessed with the internet, I would be at the cyber café at odd hours doing nothing but chatting, catching up with celebrity gossip, sending mails (wait I still do that don’t i?) but when Facebook came that was the turning point.
I suddenly reconnected with all my friends who abandoned me and went to the States and different parts of the world to school , if we bought new outfits we would post it, when we went out we would post it…snap…snap…snap Social media became a vanity propellant.
I just loved getting those comments on Facebook and I loved the attention (hey I am being honest), and the drama that followed the relationship status. Facebook slowly turned into a dating site, people were rushing into the site to hook up, Facebook has created loads of marriages, children, hook ups, friendships and sadly kidnapping, fraud and also deaths which brings me to the negative part .
