Social Media: How to Connect With Loved Ones
One of the greatest things about social media is that we can use it to keep in touch with family and friends. Not too long ago, the only way we could communicate with someone at a far distance was by writing letters and waiting for them to arrive at your home. Now we can not only talk instantly through many mediums, but we can also see what others are doing throughout the day.
When keeping in touch with those far away, it is sometimes hard to find a time you can both chat on the phone. Social media makes it possible for quick communication that allows everyone to be connected with each other while doing their other daily tasks.
Facebook is a great way to see what loved ones are up to. You can view a friend’s status and their pictures so you know what they’re doing even if you don’t get the chance to talk to them.
Skype is a fun way to both see and talk to those at a distance. Using a webcam allows you to see the person you're talking to and feel as if they are right there with you. But you do need to find a time when both sides of the computer screen can meet.
With social media at our finger tips, it is easy to send text messages as well. Email and instant messaging can be a quick way to communicate one on one.
Social media can be used to strengthen relationships and connect with those you love. Even if friends or family live at a distance, you can still be a part of their lives and show you care. Use social media to your advantage!
