How much time do you spend on Social Media ?

I’ve recently read a few articles of social media and the writing life, and this has affected the way I think about both. One of them is  ‘Our minds can be hijacked’: the tech insiders who fear a smartphone dystopia : There is growing concern that as well as addicting users, technology is contributing toward…

Are You On #Feedly ? #socialmedia

Hope to discuss all things Reading, Writing, Travel, and maybe a bit of Social awareness / Culture/ Philosophy. in the spirit of connections, maybe all of us who comment and chat at this space could connect on other social media as well. Some of you I already chat with on Twitter and Facebook, but others, not so much. A lot of us are on G+ too, and on Goodreads.

Hoping to follow all of you on your social media profiles, so please leave yours in the comments.

Beirut, #Paris, Nigeria, #Mali, #Syria : what can You do to help?

Instead of fighting with each other on social media, I urge everyone who is in a position to physically or financially help out those in need to do so, now more than ever.

One of the organizations my support goes to is Projectwhy in New Delhi, India, about which I’ve written here.

If you want to help a genuine organization trying to help children with a few dollars (as little as 5 dollars or Euros would help), where each cent of your money would go to the kids themselves, donate here. I’ve supported them for years, and this place is run by a woman with a large heart, exactly the kind who can protect us from guns with flowers.

Or, find another place, people, or cause to add your positive energy to. Do something for a person or animal or plant without concern for your own material benefit. We cannot fight darkness, we need to light a candle in order to make it melt away.

Do #Inspirational #Quotes Work for You?

If you’re on Social Media, you’ve seen those– Inspirational Quotes meant to lift you up, or your day, if you so choose. In the internet glut of images and words, some tend to stand out, and yes, I do share them on Twitter or Google+ or Facebook, and yep, now Pinterest, from time to time. Inspirational quotes operate as currency on social media – not only in terms of the way their wisdom is handled and passed on, but because motivational tweets have become a key indicator of a person worth following. What about you? Do you read Inspirational Quotes? Do they inspire you? Or do they annoy you just that little bit sometimes?
