Fun Fact Friday: Social Media

Today Amy and I are talking about our favorite social media sites! The inspiration for this topic is this article, that suggests teens aren’t all that into Facebook anymore.

I already knew that teens aren’t all into Facebook anymore, because when I talk about it in my Pop Culture classes, they roll their eyes and say, “That’s soooooo middle school, Ms. Rowse.”


If I had to choose which social media site is my favorite, I’d have to choose Facebook. It’s where most of my friends are, and I’m part of some really great private support groups that even though I’ve never met the members of the group, I feel quite the emotional connection to them.

I also like Facebook because I have several friends from grad school who often post articles that are quite useful in my Pop Culture class.

My least favorite social media site is probably Instagram. Only because I never take any photos and I forget to check it most weeks. Then I feel guilty when I do check it and I realize I’ve missed out on my friends’ photos, and I feel extra guilt because I never take any photos.

Wait. No, my least favorite social media site is Google Plus. I don’t get what that is or how it’s supposed to work, and I don’t have time to figure it out.

Not when everyone is already on Facebook anyway.

Do you realize next Friday will be the first gratitude post of the year? Do you realize two months from today is Christmas? Are you freaking out yet?
