Social Media has truly changed the world.
When I was college, back in the 1990's, the internet was still a semi new thing with chat rooms and websites first rolling out.
Most of which were still DOS.
I even interned with the first MTV online team, writing about New Orleans area radio stations, venues and music.
That was how they were gathering their content for the site back then.
Geez, times have changed.
As many of you know, Facebook turned 10-years old yesterday.
In honor of the big birthday they created these mini movies for everyone to recap their big moments on Facebook.
Maybe, it's just me, but I have really enjoyed seeing every ones!
Sorta a recap of their last few years, a glimpse into their life and interests, all in one minute time.
Here's mine in case you're interested.
I joined in 2007, 3-years after the launch.
I was all about My Space for years but got talked into joining FB by my cousin Alayna.
The rest is history.
This was my very first profile picture.
A Fall hike along the Boone Fork Trail along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
So crazy to get a glimpse of my life before marrying Brad and Shelby.
I see both the good and the bad in all these social medias.
It's fun to keep up with people, but at the same time, people let you see what they want you to see.
I'm the same.
I'm not one to go onto Facebook and rant about what a lousy day I've had because of my spouse, business partner or something else.
(I know some people are, but generally, people post good stuff.)
But, giving that, it's not always the best place for people going through rough times in their lives.
For instance, when battling infertility, I actually deactivated my FB account for an entire year.
I hated logging on and seeing another announcement about someone expecting a baby.
How do you feel about it?
With how fast technology, social media and the world is changing I can't even fathom what it will be like when Shelby is a teenager.
