Shared Human Moments

Take a few minutes to watch this video.

Powerful. Here’s the backstory.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how Twitter is not simply about sharing information – it’s much more about sharing our collective human experiences. When we read tweets, we read lives – or at least the parts that someone chooses to share. Don’t take that for granted.

    I read your tweet and watched the video right after talking to my dad who we recently had to move to an assisted care facility. I realized even more as I sent my siblings a message on FB about our dad that social media has allowed me to share the losses and challenges and celebrations I experience with others and theirs with me. It has allowed me to reconnect with old friends, stay in touch with others, and even make new friends – some who I have never met face to face, but with whom I found a common interest or passion. I believe the benefits of social media far outweigh any negatives! Thanks for sharing this – it was very touching!

    Thanks Alec
    I`ve been using social media for the last 6 months that I have been abroad to connect. Its amazing how I wake up in the morning looking for those little snips of information. They can really make my day

    What good is that information can have on hand at any time.
