A class blog about social media.

Go without social media? Not likely.

Here is a fun info-graphic that provides some interesting insights as to the motives of why people maintain their use of social media platforms. In a recent survey conducted for social networking management service MyLife.com it was revealed that 2 in 3 people are fearful of “missing something” if they don’t stay connected, and that nearly 40% would rather spend a night in jail, run a marathon or even clean the shower drains at a local gym than give up their social networks.

Take a look at the findings – can you relate to any of the stats? If anything, the key observation is that social media is deeply integrated with our everyday lives to the point that without it, some would not be able to function.
