For me, the most marvelous thing about social media is documenting the ordinary things in one’s life through blogging, microblogging, Tweets, etc. It’s a diary written on a virtual wall. “I was here. This happened. I thought this.” It doesn’t matter if anyone even reads it. It’s better to post like no one is. I have a preference for the less popular social media sites.
I’ve enjoyed it since the first time I got a howling dialup modem to access a phone line.
“I’m eating a roll at the buffet!” is a perfectly valid post.
