Why I Heart Media

There are many reasons for my love of media, but perhaps it is most prevalent in its use as a social arrangement. Social media is a relatively new aspect of media and it is fascinating to see just how integral it has become in a media dominated society.

As I have traveled, I have been fortunate to meet some fun, intelligent, and interesting people, some of which have since become good friends of mine. During my travels as well as at home, I found them to become really important people in my life for a number of reasons. With the advent of social media, I can now connect with these friends while separated. I find this really special. Of course I would rather speak with them face-to-face, but knowing that I can easily reach them at a moment’s notice is pretty spectacular. I find a lot of comfort in this.
