The power of social media is that anyone can share anything with anybody. This technology has not only connected us with other people, but it has given us “a voice” that can be heard far beyond our own physical sphere of influence. It allows us to not just share a funny video, cute picture or quick comment to those within our network, but it has given us the power to share our lives with those who are willing to listen.
Some are of the opinion that social media will somehow disconnect us with people, that it gives us a false sense of relational community. I totally disagree…although I do see their point…BUT in my experiences, social media has actually helped me connect, share and reach more people with my life than ever before. Through social media I can share parts of my life that, until now, were only possible to a select few.
