‘Why Can’t We Be Friends?’: Social Media – Part One

The discussions about ‘social media’ ebb and flow much like the tides. Or, possibly more like a recycling project. One week the banter about it is non-stop. The next week, a new topic will be dissected into small pieces. But, talk about social media never fails to reappear when a new app shows up for this or someone’s found a new outlet for that. The discussion cycle starts all over again.

Due to the number of responses, and their length, this will be a two part panel discussion article. Follow along to see what our first 7 (of 13) contributors consider true social media, how they use it, how often they use it and if they feel it is effective.

    • A Girl and Her Thumb

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

    • Home and Away

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

    • Kiwi Blog Bus

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
