Social Media is becoming a large part of our daily lives. We communicate with friends, family, and even business members. Another reason Social Media is becoming very important is because it can help you find a job or create an ad campaign. Companies often check on their employees through social networking cites as well.

Social media makes tasks such as catching up on local and national current events much simpler. One example of a current event that I personally wouldnt of known about without socail media is the 11th anual ken-ducky derby in the ohio river.

Social media means a lot to some people. A lot of people that I know have morning routines and all of them have social media involved in there somewhere. I use to wake up and go on instagram and go through my newsfeed and then go on twitter and do the same thing then go on snapchat and watch all the stories then go on vine and look to see if my favorite viner posted anything new. If they did I'd watch it a million times then finally get up. But now that I'm older i realized that I dont need that right when i wake up and waste time. So now I do all of that in the car. So yes I don't think i could go a day without social media but it also could get me in trouble for staying up to late and not wanting to get up the next morning a nd my mom yelling at me. Most everyone I know as at least one of these socail medias and I can always find them and talk to them. I met one of my best friends on facebook that lives in maryland. I haven't met him yet but we facetime everyday and it's like being there in person because his and I's families know each other like it's our own. I love social media.

Social Media has changed the daily routine of everyone. Now instead of sending notes in the mail, people can check their messages on Facebook. You can check the news and weather over twitter. Social media changes everything,

Social media is a new way to communicate with people all around the world. It also lets them share pictures and videos with everyone. It is very helpful because it also provides a lot of information that is always avalible. Without social media people wouldnt have as many ways to communicate or share parts of their lifes. It helps bring people closer together if they are far apart.

Social Media can mean many things to many different people but to me Social Media is just the internet in general. With the help of Social Media we've been able to bring people together from all over the world from every platform through videos , messages, blogs, vlogs anything you could imagine is bassicaly possible with the help of Media platforms like Facebook, Youtube, Tumblr, Reddit the options are endless to where you can spread and learn about data. That is what Social Media is to me it is something great that was created which has now brought our world together on one platform allowing us to acesss information in only seconds. With the help of Social Media i was able to find out that Ebola has now striked a fourth American and may slowly rise in numbers.

Social media has a llowed me to learn and share many thigs pertaining to my interests and hobbies, among them being food and running. Through sites such as Pinterest and other Instagram accounts centered around the same things, I have found many ways to learn useful skills, cooking techniques and inspiration for new recipes being among them. Through social media, I have discovered how to change a bowl of bland oats into a super-food creation, not only delicious but aestetically pleasing. Also,  I have been able through the ability to share these things to come up with more ideas and see and hear others throughts on mine.

Social Media  to me is a way to connect with friends and family, by sharing pictures and videos. There are good and bad sides to Social media though. There is cyber-bulluing,it creates a false sense of communication, and it can decrease productivity. It is also useful however,because it can help you stay in touch with loved ones and friends.It is also useful for businesses to get public opinions. I found an article that explains the negitive affects of social media.

I currently do not have a social media account, so social media means nothing to me. I know it is a way to interact with friends, family, and other people. Specific causes can gain support, and people can keep up with news around the world. So I guess to me, social media seems a lot like texting - only a lot bigger in today's society.
To today's society, social media means everything - well, a lot anyways. It impacts people around the world, as welll as the news. For example, I found a web page about how social media has even impacted protests in Hong Kong and Bejing.

Social media pulls away our connection from our everday activities. Inculding work, homework, sports, other school activities, etc. Yet, social media connects us with people we cant necesarly see on an everyday basis.

Social Media, according to me, is a form of non face-to-face communication. It is a way to stay connected with people all around the world. It is also a way to be informed about things happening daily. For example, you can check the weather, watch the news online, research, chat, and do many other things!

To me, social media means a place where people can post different things, such as blogs, vlogs, and anything else they want. It's also a place that you can have a user profile or account, and where you're able to post comments or replies. This is an example of a social media with this article of Ukraine rebels.

Social media has changed the ways people interact and communicate.  There are positive and negative sides to it.  However, the use of social media is so prevalent that it is hard to avoid.  Social media even influences the news and political situations in the world.  It really is a tour de force!  I found an video online that used social media to showcase a volcanic eruption in Japan!
