Social Question

Does the isolation you are experiencing now make you more grateful for social media?

Asked by jca2 (16463points) March 25th, 2020

I’m watching Kelly and Ryan Seacrest and Ryan mentioned how grateful he is for social media now.

Imagine going through the current isolation, due to the Coronavirus, without being connected with social media?

I really enjoy FB, Instagram, Pinterest, and others, always (am not addicted, but still), and now more than ever.

Not mentioning Fluther because we have been told that Fluther is not social media, but I enjoy Fluther and am grateful for it, too.

No, I have always been quite grateful for social media.

Still grateful, yes, I like social media like @anniereborn.
Oddly, I am more grateful for the regular phone these days, having actual voice contact with my loved ones is a huge comfort, much more so than messaging.

I still take it for granted. Why, I don’t know.

I appreciate the pros of social media but not the cons. Naturally.

I can’t think of twitter and trump without feeling disgusted. The mediocrity and stupidity of it all.

@mazingerz88 Yeh, i don’t do Twitter. Basically just Facebook.

Its a nice diversion at times but doesn’t take up that much of my day.
On Facebook many are logged into Genealogy groups and are assisting others to research there ancestors.
Another group is restoring old photo groups.

One gentleman posts a virtual puzzle everyday of which I found it challenging and fun to do.
He produced a book covering the above topic as many are interested since there ancestors first settled in that area due to immigration and job possibilities as the Government gave each 160 acres of land of which they owned and cleared etc.

( mostly images of Manitoba Canada abandoned Churches and old buildings before they fall to the ground.)

No, the gaff is crawling with pond life desperately craving attention.
I’m grateful to be able to spend more time with my family.
