I wonder how many count on FB for acclamation. I have a student studying social media, Bridget, will share this with her! Love this!

Thank you, Jama! Yes, I confess to a bout of inferiority or two (hundred)... I recently deactivated my account and I feel much better. =)

Thank you, Sally! I'm in good company! =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Liz! Unfortunately the feelings lingered after I turned it off that recently I ended up deactivating my account to gain this perspective. =)

It seems like you boiled some sociological studies about Facebook down to their essence, Bridget!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Karen! =)

Thanks, Tabatha! It is amazing the changes in society in such a short time because of social media. =)
