Social media compresses

the moment,

what is captured

in the moment

is now past

and the future,

already having

been on Facebook

and Twitter — 

art becoming pop

and pop becoming art,

the moment is no longer

in the present,

delegated to the past

and the future,

becoming art.


Capturing The Moment Becomes Sharing The Moment   10 comments

In the age of social media,

capturing the moment

allows the parallel universes

of past,

present, and


to coexist 

in the moment.

This iPhone image

of Cathedral Rock

was sent via


Twitter and

StumbleUpon —

Capturing the moment

has become

sharing the moment.


Who Uses Social Media? Informative Infographic   1 comment

As an active social media user, I find this infographic very informative. Even though we may think that the use of social media is a youth thing, almost 50% of the users are over 45 years of age — interesting!

Blogging in an Era of Facebook and Twitter   Leave a comment

As a blogger, this has been an interesting year, since I have also become an active Facebook and Twitter participant. Not new to either, I have organized my time to allow entries on both without too much of a lose to my blog site. Even so, there are some things that I share on them that I haven’t shared on my blog — usually it’s more the other way. Here’s a taste of some recent Facebook entries:

Social Media Can Help Your Organiization, Group, Club   Leave a comment


Medusa, by Caravaggio

To Twitt or Not Twitt, That is The Question

Everyday I ask people to become “friends,” “follow-me,” etc, resulting in, “Why?”

One of the groups I belong to is a book club, The Society of The 5th Cave, and now we are Twittering — well, some of us are. Since we are mostly older generation guys, it’s not easy to Twitt just because one of us puts 5thCave on Twitter.

Today I received another one of those “Why?” questions. What following is my response:

Good question. Here are some reasons why you need Twitter:

1.    Easily link with people sharing common interests i.e., reading, book clubs, etc.
2.    Quickly share club information and history.
3.    Have interactive dialog on books selections.
4.    Others can follow the 5thCave and learn about our reading list and reviews.
5.    The social media group provides an element of trust because of our knowledge of one another.
6.    Provide avenues for choosing to link (follow) other like minded people.
7.    The are many other reasons for using Twitter, i.e.:
•    Identify potential clients, news sources, leads, etc
•    Find a job
•    Build brand awareness
•    Make money
•    To get news and information
•    Drive viewers to blog or website

. . .but may not apply to 5thCave.

To be a part of the Twitter 5thCave, one needs to register on and start following 5thCave.

Twitter is just one of many social media sites that allow people to network, which is fundamental to being human, but make use of technology to network.

The real negative of Twitter is you will need to check your site, which will contain postings on 5thCave if you are following 5thCave. What shows up on your site are the posting of those you are following — so the choices are all yours.

Hope this is helpful.

I would like to hear your comments on why you use social media.
