“I now pronounce you man and wife, you may now change your Facebook status.” Anonymous
In today's world this is soooooo true. If it didn't happen on social media, it didn't happen.
As a parent, I only find out if my kids are dating someone if their Facebook status was changed from "Single" to In a "Relationship". I know I'm not the only one that can relate to that.
Social media is a here to stay. Without it we wouldn't be able to connect with lost family members, keep in touch with college or military friends, and more easily share our message.
Today's businesses also love social media. The advertising potential is far and away better than anything that was available 10 to 15 years ago.
Embrace it, use it, own it, but don't let it get out of control. Never forget the personal touch.
To keep a balance make sure you write a letter, pick up the phone, or go out to lunch with people on the other end of your social media address book. Doing that will ensure meaningful relationships that can be enhanced with online contact.
And don't forget to change your status after you get married.
