Everyone knows that the Pope was in town, and how did most of us find out? Social Media! Our Twitter Newsfeeds blew up that day with hashtags greeting the pope like #PopeMobile, #PopeInUS, etc. Facebook articles blanketed our live feeds letting us know about Obama and the Pope’s first encounters, and we all followed Pope Francis as he traveled the US in his Popemobile!
Although true, the pope believes that Social Media can lead to loneliness, as shown in the video above. With everyone striving to have the most followers, and news constantly streaming on social media, it’s getting hard to look up from your phone or tablet!
Here at Konnect Interactive, we strive to make a connection through social media. With this in mind, we also attempt to make those connections in the real world as well. In today’s culture, social media has a huge impact in our lives. We truly hope everyone takes the Pope’s wise words into consideration.
We love trends and fads, and we can’t deny that these don’t play a large part of our lives. Though true, we want everyone to still remember to look up from their phones and smell the flowers.
Next time you want to tweet a friend, make a trip to see them instead. Make a Konnection!
