  • &#x201C;My life story is filled with wonderful connections to amazing people, but I lose contact with too many. The energy created by friendships and the brain happiness of those connections fade to a fine silk thread that .... <br />
  • that becomes thinner overtime until &#x2013; without my knowing &#x2013; it frays to nothing and the connection is lost altogether. At some moment, when I realize that disconnect, I go through a soft mourning of the loss. <br /> <br /> In steps Facebook. <br /> <br /> I fought Facebook for awhile, but then I realized that all the younger members of my extended family knew about each others happenings and were "connected", from Edmonton, to Provo to Rhode Island to San Diego. I gave in and joined. <br /> <br /> It wasn&apos;t a comfortable fit at first. I found it difficult to find my way around, as I do with all technology. Being a non-native / immigrant its uncomfortable at times, and I don&apos;t always feel I fit. What I did find was that I was able to connect with my SONS! That was a big bonus. <br /> <br /> The part I love most is that it has become that fine silk thread again. I have a small connection to friends of the past, friends at a distance, friends of my children, family far away. <br /> <br /> http://www.flickr.com/photos/hippie/2439322634/ <br />

  • It&#x2019;s all about the connections we make with others! <br />
  • A recent article in Scientific American Mind discusses the benefits and potential dangers of using social media tools such as Facebook or Twitter. <br />
  • The gist of the current research shows that if a person is socially competent/healthy/well and uses social media to augment their relationships, then the results can be very positive. But for those people who struggle to maintain their social well-being using social media as a replacement for healthy relationships can be detrimental &#x2013; increasing depression and anxiety. <br /> <br /> I want to give you some ideas on how to use Facebook sensibly. <br />
  • I can&#x2019;t claim that I use Facebook perfectly, and have the epitome of a balanced life, <br /> <br /> but I want to share some small steps towards letting it be a positive influence in your life. <br />
  • How can I use Facebook to improve my connection with others? <br /> <br /> Share pictures <br /> Invite to events <br /> What is a Network? <br /> Manage time <br /> Turn off e-mail notifications <br /> Change privacy settings <br />
