  • “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 ....
  • that becomes thinner overtime until – without my knowing – 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.

    In steps Facebook.

    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.

    It wasn'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't always feel I fit. What I did find was that I was able to connect with my SONS! That was a big bonus.

    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.

  • It’s all about the connections we make with others!
  • A recent article in Scientific American Mind discusses the benefits and potential dangers of using social media tools such as Facebook or Twitter.
  • 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 – increasing depression and anxiety.

    I want to give you some ideas on how to use Facebook sensibly.
  • I can’t claim that I use Facebook perfectly, and have the epitome of a balanced life,

    but I want to share some small steps towards letting it be a positive influence in your life.
  • How can I use Facebook to improve my connection with others?
