One thought on “BLOG 2: SOCIAL MEDIA & MY LIFE”

  1. I agree that social media is a powerful tool that is now so personal we can learn what we want when we want it. I wouldn’t go as far to say that social media is secure, which is why I always strive to edit my social media accounts. Especially with news nowadays about accounts being hacked and personal information being shared, I think we should all take extra care not to post every little thing that could end up being harmful to our lives one day.
