What do people think about social media? I totally get facebook, MySpace and those kind of internet social places to connect and keep up with friends and family, but how about people who use social media like Youtube and twitter to reach out to an audience whom they dont even know on a real level. Im not going to lie, I tried doing things like Youtube, and flickr to reach out to an unknown audience, but for me, mainly its so I can add some kind of social factor into my life rather than feeling like I am all alone with no one to talk to. So yes, what I wonder is why people go into things like chat rooms, youtube, and the like, to want to reach out to an audience who they dont know at all. The first thought that would come into my mind if I found out that one of my friends were actively involved in creating youtube videos and etc is....strange, off, weird. Probably because its outside the box of the norm. Any thoughts?
