What is the one Web 2.0 characteristic, platform, or feature you would find hard to give up if you had to…and why?
The one platform that would be the hardest to give up would be: Facebook. Why?, Because I know that I can use it all the time and I helps me to feel connected to the outside world.
To me connection, means a world outside my own home either as an escape or a temporary relief of my routine as a mom. I am a selfish person and that constant connection to Facebook and the events other people attend, pretend or enjoy give me an opportunity to forget that my house is a mess, that the kids have homework, that I have to prepare dinner or that I need to do my own school work.
Being able to connect to Facebook with my phone is my selfish way to tune out reality. I am not saying I don’t love my kids and my husband or even my own college education, but I am a person that hates routine and being part of it tends to get really overwhelming. So that is why I hope to never be away from it.
Emoticons are my favorite too 😉
