How are we all? As a follow-up to last week’s blog about how *NOT* to use social media, I thought it would be good this week to highlight a story about how *TO* use #SoMe and so my #TOTW this week is:
“Some people think breast cancer is just a lump, but in fact that is not true, it can present itself in other ways” Woman shares photo of dimples on breast to raise awareness of cancer symptoms http://mashable.com/2016/03/07/breast-cancer-dimples/#cu2gTMpka051 … via
For all the criticism that social media comes in for, it does have many positive uses. Those people that choose to share information about their private lives in such a way as this i.e. for the benefit of others should be praised and applauded, not derided. Like any media in life, whatever form it takes, if used appropriately it can be done so for the greater good. Unfortunately the doctor I mentioned in last week’s #TOTW chose to use social media for negative and mean-spirited purposes. This story shows that when used positively it can also save lives…literally.
Thanks for reading! Please share this with your friends and family. It only has to be seen by one person and you never know how much good it might do!
