Social Media. It’s not a fad. At least, that’s what many people say these days. Indeed, it looks like it’s here to stay.
At the moment, I neither have the time nor the energy to analyze the ramifications that this new form of media brings to humanity. While I do have strong feelings against it, I have to admit that I am one of those people who is actually addicted to it.
These days, I find myself more and more engaged with my friends activities through Facebook and Twitter than actually engaged in activities with them. It just feels so weird that the more I try to connect with them through social media, the more I sort of also get disconnected with them. Does that even make sense? It probably doesn’t.
Anyway, why am I writing about this? I’m writing this because I’m having ultimate fun reading my students’ blogs. I guess if I don’t have enough time to sit one one one with them to get to know them better, their blogs somehow give me an insight to what makes them tick.
I’m rambling again. Ciao.
