It is amazing how you gave me and millions of others the voice to be heard. You made communication between me and the manufacturer of the facial wash I use everyday, the network I subscribed to, and the mall I stroll around spontaneous and interactive. Directly or indirectly, I can now take part in improving brands, products, and services to serve the best interest of consumers. You made it possible that I need not try them to test for quality myself I simply need to search sites for opinions, forums, and testimonials.
As a student, you have been extremely of help. Since I make no money yet, you provided cheap and convenient ways so I can supplement my research, home works, or reports. You also allow me to connect in real time with friends, classmates, and even family that reunions became quite popular these days. Another of your wonders is the fact that you can make anything viral. From videos, photos, ads, literatures, etc., you turned ordinary people into producers, contributors and tastemakers.
I also appreciate that I can express myself the way I want to around you. I can manage people’s perception and impression of me. I have the power to design my own page and select only the ones I like without having you offended. You even question my apparent dislikes and feed me suggestions of what you think will interest me. I don’t compensate you for your work yet you never ask for anything in return. You even continue to evolve, for my sake.
When I feel down and lonely, you’re there to comfort me. When I’m filled with glee, you’re there to share it with me. New Social Media, please stay. I hope we would grow old together.
