Engrossing in Social Media

By  | 

If someone asked how many times you've interacted with a computer or phone, could you count on two hands?

Most likely you'd have to use your feet, and even that might not be enough.

"It's a huge issue, and it's something that we have to be aware of as a society. It's kind of getting to an unhealthy level of reliance on social media," says Mountain Time Media outreach coordinator Aaron Rosenbaum.

It’s even affecting time at home.

"It's completely changed. The whole family dynamic has changed as we now have everything on demand, and everything on the go," Rosenbaum added.

Often it's used for entertainment, but social media can be informative too.

Members of the Casper Police Department realize how effective it has become.

"That is why the police department here wants to get on to that and start being part of the social media. It's not going away,” Detective Hatcher of the police department said. “It's here to stay and it's only going to continue to expand. You might as well jump on the train and ride it, or you're going to get left behind,” added the public information officer.

You will be left behind in an age where our fingers take lead.
