Why Limit Yourself to a Computer?
Often times, we think that being socially connected means fingers on a full keyboard, seated at a chair, staring into a display. That assumes, of course, we’re talking about socially connected in the internet sense. The fact of the matter is that being socially connected doesn’t mean you’re locked into a chair at home. You can very easily mix your in-person social life with your web social presence at the movies, the pub, your favorite restaurant, or the ball park.
Of course, you’re now curious what I’m referring to. Social media is starting to find a home on mobile devices so you don’t have to stress about staying connected at your home machine 24/7. If you’re the kind of person who loves taking pictures with a mobile phone, many mobile social networks will allow you to upload photos to an entire mobile social community dedicated to sharing different media content. If staying connected to a plethora of social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and others is more your flavor, there are quite a few newly-emerging platforms that aggregate all of your most important social activity right on your cell phone.
That, friends, means freedom — freedom from the confines of your home office, freedom to live your life as you want and still stay in contact with your social communities. With smartphones, touchscreen handsets and very affordable standard handsets being compatible with these mobile social platforms, answer me this: why are you still sitting at your computer toiling over each and every update your friends send you on all your different platforms when you could be out? Instead of answering me, go out and go mobile!
