Our Lives in the Hands of the Internet.

    Gosh. Social Media. I have been studying it more and really getting into ALL the different types of social media for a good 4-5 months now...and i STILL have not even come close to be notified of a majority of them. Social media is a completely different world, and reality and people are starting to realize that it is now a new way of living. No, it WILL be the way of living. So where does it go from here? Can we REALLY come up with a newer and better phone while we have already invented a phone smarter that most beings?  Can we come up with new ways to educate ourselves, make a career, keep in touch with others? The truth is...yes we can and we most likely with quite rapidly to say. Social Media, in my mind, is kind of like the ocean. Huge, never-ending, a little unsafe, and the biggest comparison would be there is something new to discover about them 
    With something to up and coming who wouldn't want to be a part of that? Who wouldn't want to shop, do you homework, find an answer to absolutely ANYTHING with the tap of a finger? The internet is the whole world at the tip of our fingers, and we need to take advantage of it. The internet was not always accessible not to long ago a matter of fact and now I could not even imagine a world without my iPhone. 
    To stay on top of social media one has to be smart and involved. Like anything it takes a lot of practicing to be tech savvy but it is so worth it. Stay on top of the peaks and pits of the Web and like life itself being able to take on the world takes skill, and survival of our surroundings. And the Internet has us wrapped up in the power of the web, we must not be foolish and let it take over and most importantly we must control it.

    You're right, it can definitely be overwhelming. We've just scratched the surface in this class. I hope you continue to explore and uncover new tools and innovative uses of technology.
