F is for Facebook and social media – one of my favorite pastimes

A favorite of mine that begins with F is Facebook, not so much because of Facebook but because Facebook led me to all social media, including Twitter and my blogs. And my blogs led to me to discover my love for writing, which led me to write my book On the Road with U2 about all my travels on the U2 tours the past 20 years. Facebook, Twitter and my blogs have become such an integral part of my daily life. Facebook put me in contact with friends I hadn’t been in touch with in 20 years. Twitter has allowed me to make several new friends from all over the world, as well as give me up to the minute news and information about events. Ironically I was very resistant to join Facebook. It wasn’t until my best friend Cindy kept bugging me to join that I tried it, and then I couldn’t stop. Thanks Cindy! I love social media!

What do you like better: Twitter or Facebook?

This blog post is part of my A to Z April Challenge – 26 of my favorites. Thanks for stopping by. I am also blogging the A to Z Challenge on my other blog On the Road with U2.

  3. I only use FB to connect with close friends and family, and it’s not a public account. I use Twitter a lot more, though lately, I haven’t been much of a Twitter-er. 🙂 Too busy these days.
