What Are You REALLY Using Social Media For?

Why do we use Social Media??

I got to thinking the other day about how young social media really is and how much/often we use our social networks in addtion to what we use them for. I ended up writing out a list of what I do on my social networks as well as what I see others use social media for.
Take a look at the list and see if any of these things line up with what you do on your social networks, then in the comment box feel free to add to the list!
  1. News
  2. Business
  3. Shopping
  4. Venting
  5. Friending
  6. Following
  7. Liking
  8. Linking/Connecting
  9. Blogging
  10. Commenting
  11. Being Nosey “Curious George”
  12. Talking
  13. Venting
  14. Hanging Out
  15. Socializing
  16. Exploring
  17. Meeting People
  18. Showing off (from time 2 time)
  19. Having Fun
  20. Expressing (good/bad/indifferent)
  21. Sharing
  22. Networking
  23. General Communication
I listed 23 things off the top of my head. Viewing these 23 items, how were we (how was I) doing all these things before? God forbid, but what if social media went away….how would I then go about doing these things?
Interesting thought, no? It’s just so apparent that we use social media for a lot of things especially in everyday communication/living.
Isn’t it amazing how one thing can shape a whole bunch of different avenues in our life. For instance. The world of marketing is changing. Social media is in everyone’s new marketing strategy!
