This past week I did a story about college students giving up Facebook for lent. I'm not very technologically savvy, so my first thought was "Hmmm, that doesn't seem too difficult." But then I realized I check my own Facebook at least once a day.
However, by no means am I a Facebook fanatic! I've never posted a photo album or changed my status to let people know what I'm doing, and rarely do I write on my friends' walls.
Actually, when I really think about it, I'm pretty anti-social when it comes to on-line communication!!! I know the Internet is a great way to keep in touch with people you rarely see, but I just can't seem to get more involved with the world wide web!
The really bad part about all of this is that the Internet is the future of the business I'm in. I think I would have been a much better reporter ten years ago before the Web Channel became such a priority. I just can't seem to grasp the concept of posting a story on-line before writing the on-air version.
However, I know that viewers flock to the web and it's important to keep you all updated as quickly as possible, so trust me....I'm working on my cyber social skills, and hopefully someday soon I won't be such a cyber outcast. :)
