I believe that social media is a form of communication that everyone can benefit from. It might seem daunting at first, with so many networks out there and all, but it’s a very fun, approachable, and easy to understand medium.

I find it hard to accept that there are any true social media ‘experts’. This field is constantly evolving – there are new networks popping up every few months, and updates to the ways these networks operate on a consistent basis. To be an ‘expert’ is to know absolutely everything there is to know about something, and with social media, there is always something new to learn, and we’re all in it together.

On a deeper level, I believe that social media is a fairly decent reflection of our collective consciousness. We can learn a lot from each other, reach out to audiences that we had never fathomed of having before, and use social media as a catalyst to inspire happiness, well-being, and interconnectedness. The moods and attitudes that social media conveys also serve to show us where we can improve as a society.

That being said, if you’d like to be ambiently aware of me, you can find me online at the following networks on a regular basis:
