Happy Social Media Week

Social Media Week kicked off today with events in 12 cities around the globe. CNN iReport is partnering with the global platform this year and it has gotten us thinking about the question: "How does social media affect your life"?


We put the question out on our Twitter account this morning and received some interesting responses:


User @nidhi_delhi said "social media makes me feel heard and responsible with words.”


"It's affected my life in a good way,” said @Burntoast89. It lets you communicate easier and much faster than ever before." That's a mixed blessing for @Flack4RIC, who gets "more customer interaction, less sleep."

@ca7butterfly says that she might need "social media rehab," because she can't function without checking her iPhone every five minutes.


@alxchrstnsn also stressed the importance of social media, saying that "for us youngins, every week is social media week." (Thanks for making me feel like a geezer, now get out of my yard you whippersnapper).


The week has just begun, so we’re looking for more stories from around the world. Let us know how social media affects you in a short video.



If you're in Beirut, Berlin, Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Chicago, Glasgow, Los Angeles, Milan, Moscow, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, or Vancouver, you might want to check out some of the Social Media Week events. You can also watch a lot of the events online. Let us know if you see something interesting.

Social Media would affect my life in a really significant way, if CNN would put my comment about Israel on the Piers Morgan show by interviewing anyone (like me) whos against sending Welfare in the form of Billions of Dollars(16 Billion Dollars last time I chedked years ago)to Isreal/Pakistan(and God knows who elese)every year.
