As a person who lived when social media didn’t exist, I can say life was far different. The world was far smaller. Neighbors were far closer. Friends were people you spent time with. But change is the only constant in life. One day social media will be gone also. Replaced by something else we humans will eventually ruin. LOL!

For those who have never experienced it, go outside and leave your phone at home. It might be scary at first. But after a while it’s liberating. No electronic tether. Real freedom. And you’ll be forced to actually think.

And for those who don’t realize it, social media is not mandatory. I dumped Twitter and LinkedIn and don’t miss them a bit. And I rarely check facebook anymore. The fun is gone.
