Social media is not a fad, it is a fundamental shift in the way we communicate
Learning to navigate the new social media revolution will be the next real challenge for many busters, boomers and seniors. Suprisingly though, many are beginning to adapt well to Facebook and other popular avenues of social media . For example, my 80 year old father now navigates Facebook with his new Ipad!
As a boomer, I can honestly say that I do enjoy the world of social media. However, at the same time I am challenged by the time consuming demand it puts on my life. At times I ask myself, "is it really all that advantageous to engage? ... is it a tool or a time robber?"
Paul admonished us to avoid distraction and when we have contact with things of the world, to make good use of them without becoming attached to them...(I Cor. 7:31,35 TLB)
Self control, discipline, and wisdom is needed in the use of social media. However, lest anyone think it's an unnecessary evil, think again. Check this video out, it tells the story! So Concerning Social Media - You in or Out? Let me know your thoughts on this important topic.
