If used wisely social media can be great. You can reconnect with family and friends that you have lost touch with or that are a long distance away. Don't forget that you are dealing with real people who have loved you, shared memories, happy and sad, births, deaths,weddings, sickness, hugs and laughter. People "unfriend" with the touch of a button. The message this sends is clear. They give no thought to the feelings of people who love them. Use social media thoughtfully.
