What is social media?

Social media. What is it. Is it a place to socialize and make friends or catch up with old one's.
Or Is it a place to advertise your business socially. Why do they call it social media if it's used for everything under the sun. So basically social media is the internet but they wanted to try to group small sections of the internet  to make it easier to monitor. Or to make little business like monopoly everybody needs a home and or business per-say right.

Well the reason why I'm writing this post is to try to break it down to make it easier to understand in laymen terms or in away that a little kid could understand it because kids now days can figure out technology faster then the person who built it. Or for 60yr old and up. When I say 60yrs old it is for the people who just don't have time to get to know the technology or just can't get it , or they don't want to learn it per-say because I know a lot of people 60yrs and older who know a little of it. lol
So let's get into it. You have the internet which is where you can use a search engine. like google, bing, yahoo, or and so on to research things like how to cook a chicken or find the weather or look up the news. And some times the internet will take you on a wild goose chase so you might have to be specific on what your searching for. Then you have social media. Social media is a small but bigger platform were you can search for either business or people. And usually when you search for a business on a regural search engine it will tell you the basics of the business hours, location and reviews and maybe a couple of pictures. But when you search a business on social media you will get a lot more from reviews, pictures, people supporting the business to even short videos of the store owner. There is a lot of different social media like facebook, twitter, tumbler, Google plus, instagram, Pinterest and more. some are just for photos like pintrest and instagram and others are more for like short paragraph statements like Twitter but all these social media's have a specific job and I will later make a post for each social media and explain in depth what they do.
But the main theme with social media is to socialize. each platform  is a place where you can meet, follow, like and comment on other people's business or just there picture. You will literally make a online friend that you might actually talk to a lot or every now and media is a place where people will see you online everyday and actual feel like they know you personally exspecially if you are really into it and post pictures, statements and video or blog everyday.
Before it was social media there were parties and going to the mall or something of the out and about nature to interact with another person but now with social media all you have to do is log in to an account and boom you already made 10 to 20 friends just by a small paragraph or a short video.
That's how easy it is now to make a online friend but if your interacting online with people all the time are you still getting the same interaction as if you were face to face with a person. not so much but it is a good way to promote business or a good way to catch up with old friends or they can be helpful for research. In my next post I will talk about in depth what pintrest, instagram, facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn in is all about I choose these social media accounts because I have account with them but at the same time I know my mom or my son always ask what are these sites and what are you suppose to do on so I am doing this for them and others who feel like there not getting it. I hope you guys enjoyed this read and there is more to come.

Are you a single mother? Are you a mother that feels all alone? A rubber face with a stripper's name. Memoir by Katja Berg is a book for you. This book is

No more bad secerts by Daisy Copelin (Book review) #Mustread

No more bad secrets. By daisy Copelin

To read a book from front cover to back is. What I did when I got this book I knew it was a children's book about personal bodies but wow. This book is so well written as I read through this book I was so proud to read it because one its telling something every kid should know and think about at school age. I love the fact that the author painted a picture of a child a good, innocent, child to see how kids are so proud to be children but someone can change that innocents and it's our duty as parents to always talk to our children and check in with them and make them feel so comfortable that no one can ever take our child's innocents and also check every adult predator and child no one is safe and always check for ques. I'm glad I read this book because I'm always talking about what is a good way to talk to our children about abuse, sex, or inappropriate behavior and this is a good book for parents and children to get a dialogue g…

what age do you have the birds and bees talk

Today is a day where we are going to get straight into it. When is a good age to have the birds and bees talk?

I ask this question only because I keep having these almost close talks with my son about the birds and bees. my son is only in the second grade and has come home asking me what is sex, and saying kids are doing subjective dances at school and he sees it and it confuses him.
now at this age you already have the regular talk about personal body's and personal space and no one is to see their personal body unless it's your parents and doctor and your doctor can only do that because your parent is around and letting them know the slang of there private parts so they could never get tricked or anything. Now the birds and bees talk is more for preteens to teenagers because you talk about sex and everything else under the sun at this point because there of age to understand mentally and physically understand there body and puberty and everything else. while being able to un…
