my own digital world.
I’ve loved social media for as long as I can remember having access to it. “Webshots” was a website where you could upload photo albums, long before myspace and very long before facebook. My best friends and I used it religiously at the tender age of 12; making new usernames everytime our free membership’s maxium of 120 photos was up. But, when “MySpace” became more popular than the mall food court on a Friday night, my friends and I thought we were WAY too cool. “Facebook” rocked my world though.
My older sister informed me that you couldn’t go to college without having a facebook. Luckily, it became a neccesity by my junior year in high school, and I immediately jumped on the bandwagon. I was deeply enthralled by the internet by that time and facebook gave me an acceptable outlet for it. I could post funny links or pictures to my other friends’ facebooks and upload photo albums. I was obsessed and it’s barely worn off with time. Everytime I walk into my apartment, I open my computer and pull up Facebook and my E-mail, every single time.
While I haven’t expaded myself into other social media websites (yet!) like “Twitter” or “Flickr“, I still consider myself a social media groupie! And speaking of social media, check out this video, it’s really cool and informative about how social media is taking over the world!
