Six Word Fridays: love

Tweet, tweet...

The truth: I love social media

Not for the tools or gadgetry

Although that does play a part

It’s for the connections I’ve made

The people who have enriched me

The opportunities to build/contribute something

Greater than myself; supporting my communitySix Word Fridays

Participating, engaging, learning, sharing – yes, yes

All those trite, over-used expressions

Are really, truly…what I love

This Six Word Friday post is inspired by the Social Capital Conference – Ottawa’s first social media learnathon – and one that I am fortunate enough to be speaking at tomorrow. Can’t wait!

Hi Ayala,

Yes, and allows you to give in return. That’s the best part!

I know exactly how you feel, and when people condemn it, I just think about all the joy it has brought me.

Yes, despite criticism, social media has provided so many connections to wonderful people from all over that we’d never have connected with otherwise. It’s the new pen pal-ing. Enjoy the conference.

Yup. Me too. Social media <3. Now if only Google+ would pick up… (Is it just my circles, or is everyone being really… professional? over there? There's, like, zero chatter. Just posts and links and such. Weird.)

Hi Melissa,

I agree – not a lot of chatter…people still trying to figure out how to flow it into their social media stream.
