Using Our Social Media Powers For Good
Using Our Social Media Powers For Good
6 days ago 9 comments Categories: Lifestyle Tags:

I wrote this blog before the events of last week with the intention of posting it today. After the events of last week, I seriously considered holding this blog back. But my intended message is important and not intended, at all, to address current events.

 

As many of my Facebook friends know, I posted on December 31, 2020 that I was having my annual mammography and sonogram. I strongly believe that regular mammograms are important for women as it has proven over and over that early detection is our best possible defense in the fight against breast cancer.

 

What I did not post that day was, I had failed to heed my own advice. Due to my own procrastination and, in part, the pandemic, I was nine months late in scheduling my mammography. Having had issues in the past I sat in the radiologist’s office angry at myself for my own failure to follow my usual practice and extremely nervous and anxious about the possible results. I am happy to say that my results are back, I am fine, and greatly relieved.

 

I posted on Facebook on that day with the hope that others would not be in the same situation; that my post would nudge someone to make their appointment. I was so happy to have read all the comments on my post. Many friends confirmed that they already had their appointments scheduled. More importantly, many friends thanked me for the message and confirmed that they were going to schedule their mammography. That is what I hoped would happen. If only one friend scheduled a mammography because of my post then I accomplished my goal.

 

I tried to use my social media account for good that day. Can you imagine how wonderful the world would be if we all did?

    Great blog! You’re right. I’ll schedule mine today. Social media is a tool and i agree, it’s best use is for passing around “the good” in this world.

    Great to hear you are OK. Social Media can and should be used for the good. Unfortunately, it often is used for bad.
