For me the best thing about social media is that I can keep upto date & stay connected with family and friends but the rest of the world. Being at home most of the time with just the dog and bubba to talk to I tend to go on Facebook, Twitter and other forms of social media to pass the time & see what's happening in the world when I'm not caring for Alex or tidying up the endless mess that is.
One of my favourite social media apps at the moment is snapxhat. Mostly I follow celebs and my favourite YouTubers, as well as some of my favourite bloggers. The video format allows me to feel more connected and on occasion get a well needed chuckle.
