Facebook was just beginning to become popular as I entered into my freshman year at Azusa Pacific University. I had no idea what the purpose behind it was so I created an account not thinking I would really spend much time. I came from a background in which I was not allowed to watch cartoons, nor posses let alone play video games. Therefore any kinda of computer work was a challenge, besides typing. I soon came to realize how well Facebook can be used to communicate on a global scale, but for me it was my family. Up next came Instagram (ig) and twitter. Due to my financial demands I was not able to purchase a smart phone until after I had graduated. It was a catch up game figuring out what an "app" was. Throughout the past couple years I have done a few social media cleanses and breaks. These have had some major benefit in regards to increasing my free time and allowing me to gain better focus, along with not allowing the images and phrases to deter me from my career goals. The most recent move was to deactivate my Facebook account and potentially permanently deleting it down the line. Given my role as an Athletic Trainer. I find myself very invested into all of the athletics for my university along with professional teams. There are clear benefits for the apps of social media, particularly in regards to score and injury updates, weather, scheduling, traffic, and so on. Bottom line is social media can play a beneficial role in marketing, announcements, and professional scheduling. One must not overlook the potential hazards that come simultaneously. I am pleased to know that the current university i attend uses both twitter and Instagram in a ways that update parents and fans, promote upcoming events, and advertise what is desired; all through a faith based lens.
