Have you ever had a social media withdrawal? It is ok to admit. Was there a time that your internet would not connect or you left your Blackberry on the charger at home? I found the drawing below that is insinuating that our dependance as a culture on social media sources is similar to a smoker who needs to take a break for a cigarette in between shifts. How often do you check your Facebook? In between classes? Do you get flustered when you know you have a class when you can check your cell phone without receiving some sort of punishment? I mean really, in that 50 minutes class, the world could come to an end.
What is even better? How many of you have started to think about “cleaning up your Facebook” so what future employers do not see togas, red cups, or other unexplainable photos? This is a new reality that college grads have not faced before. We have created this online character we call ourselves, but what if we do not want future employers to see the Saturday night us? Next time you post photos, take that into account.
