Seems like the Digital Age is not going anywhere anytime soon. As we spend increasingly more time online, what are some guidelines that are reinforced in your church / household / work/ circle of friends / individually when it comes to social media and use of the internet? It's kinda like what the world calls e-tiquette. I'll go first: * As a church, we are normally supposed to fast from food and social media as a collective, once every week. For me this means: no Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Just WhatsApp in case of emergencies. * In my solo household, I try to not be on social media after 10pm or before I've done my devotions in the morning. * At work I tend to check my phone a lot, but since my apps are being disinstalled due to system overload , I don't do it as often anymore. * People in my circle of friends abhor social media and prefer to meet and talk face-to-face. One of my close friends is not even on Facebook at all. She recently joined Instagram though. * Individually it's hard because I am somewhat of a hermit and really prefer e-communication . BUT...I've got to step out of my comfort zone. Other than this there are some guidelines I go by: I only post positive and uplifting messages, whether about my life or something going on in the world. I NEVER partake in the mass grief that takes place whenever something like a shooting goes by. What I do is bring it about in our prayer circle on Saturday, we pray about it, discuss it and continue to pray about it at home. I find this to be more effective. Recently a lady from our church lost her sister in the DRC. I had planned to post something uplifting again, but as a token of respect for her grief, I didn't. So that whole day I didn't post anything and just let her be in my thoughts. Also, on FB, whenever I see that everyone has put a 'thumbs up' on a post or a 'heart', I follow suit. It's more beautiful to be 'in agreement' sorta say, rather than bringing discord if y'all know what I mean. Your turn, let's discuss!
