I was dragged into doing Ebay by a dear friend. It became a source of selling my books from our walk in store. But what was unique was the social connection it created. I have received cards from all over the world after a transaction with one buyer who just wanted me to know where he was going. Folks have asked me to pray for them over concerns for their family. We develop friendships with customers who wanted email or even to do instance messaging. I remember one customer who I followed her little girl having her front teeth knocked out…to their home burning down and the lost of their breeding dogs…etc. And because of that connection through another buyer that knew them..I was able to provide all their home school material for their daughter during this time………………..but our story goes on….finally, I was convinced to blog, to do facebook, and now the church I attend has as it main source of connection among its congregation through facebook. The pastors do tweeter,,,use Blackberry phones, text messages, etc, blogs, posting sermons, even cartoon movies that they create for messages….so I am in the midst of all of this and it has been a learning field for sure. My son has an online business that has blogs, etc and their customer all act like family. My youngest daughter has a blog for her up and coming business. My middle daughter does school on line and their is social connection required for the classes…..social media connections is the way of life today !

When it comes to technology, I have never considered myself to be an early adapter or early adopter. In fact, I comically yet truthfully dubbed myself “Fred Flintstone” because it was well into the 1980’s before I graduated from a black-and-white television to one with, can you believe it, color. I also remember my reluctance to use a pager/beeper. Even after I finally purchased one, it stayed hidden somewhere in the clutter of my handbag. Yes, I was afraid of an invasion of my time, my privacy, and the exposure to everyone that I was technologically handicapped and confused.

But, oh, how things have changed! I don’t know what transitioned me into the mindset and world of social media. Maybe it was just pure survival; the survival of the fittest. Perhaps it was my desire to further my education later in life. At that point, I took online classes and was forced to adapt and participate with other people, complete strangers, through vehicles such as live chat, texting, and Skype. My life has not been the same since and I would not turn back to the “Stone Age” again for any reason! Imagine my twenty-something-year-old daughter’s surprise recently when she found out that I was on Facebook. She became utterly shocked – an OMG (yes, I know what that means) moment – to learn that I regularly tweet on Twitter.

Social media is here to stay and the demand for real-time information and conversation can only increase. I say that we all get on board or get left behind. This is especially true if we want to keep up with younger generations, particularly our family members. Think about it, what is a newspaper to them or a “land line?” Great post! You are on to something good!
