I’ve never responded to a meme before, but I thought I’d give it a go as part of blogjune. There’s a meme that Mashable has come up with – “what does social media mean to you”? I guess for me social media is about connections. Twitter allows connections to be made easily with people from all around the world. I did a quick tally, and I’ve only met and spoken to 30% of the individuals that I follow. As far as my followers go, I’ve only met 20% of them. I’m a bit choosier when it comes to friends on Facebook, as I’ll only “friend” people that I’ve met.
I guess that’s why it’s called “social” media – it’s all about feeling like you’re part of a group with common interests. And that’s what social medis means to me.
