Is social media a good thing or a bad thing?
I’m pretty sure that there are as many answers to that question – on both sides – as the number of people you ask to answer it.
I think that social media, like many things in life, is what you make of it.
For me, social media is a way to connect with people. Those connections often lead to positive outcomes for me.
That actually happened yesterday. I was feeling a little discouraged and with the little energy that I had, I opened Facebook on my phone (hoping to find some “good” news being shared).
The first thing that I saw was a quote posted by a friend. Those words gave me relief and hope:
God always has something for you,
a key for every problem
a light for every shadow
a relief for every sorrow
and a plan for every tomorrow.
Those words reminded me that the joy of the Lord is my strength!
As human beings, we experience ups and downs as we journey through life. During those “down” times, we can often find encouragement in places we may not expect – like on social media.
Just like a smile can brighten someone’s day, a positive message shared on social media can lift someone’s spirits.
How do you use social media? Whether you use it or not, do you think that it is a good thing or a bad thing?
