Giving Thanks: To Social Media

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have you will never, ever have enough.”

Oprah Winfrey

During the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives, we sometimes lose sight of how lucky we are and the many good fortunes that we’ve been blessed with.

I decided that in honor of tomorrow being Thanksgiving, I wanted to put together a list of 10 things that I’m thankful for… in the social media world.

Here is what I came up with (in no particular order):

  1. The fact that Pinterest came into existence.
  2. Awesome deals and discounts that companies offer. 
  3. Maintaining friendships with people that live across the world or just across town.
  4. Mobile apps that mean I can lay in bed, Tweet and Facebook-stalk people all day. (Joke! Sort of…)
  5. The ability to make a difference and support causes around the world.
  6. Amazing GIF sites like My Friend Are Married and What Should We Call Social Media that make me laugh throughout the day.
  7. Finding work through sites like Elance and LinkedIn.
  8. The ability to make any picture look awesome with Instagram filters.
  9. Meeting and networking with people from around the world.
  10. Learning something new every day.
Why are you thankful for social media?
