Anyone can bounce a basketball, but few people can shoot hoops with proper technique.
Anyone can hold a pencil and write, but not everybody is a hand lettering artist.
And I’d like to think the same way with social media.
We live in a world where we’re allowed to share almost everything (but does it mean that we should?).
Anyone can hit the Post button, but it takes a lot more to understand why others would care to see your post and engage with it.
Communication is a skill, which means it can be practiced and improved.
Instead of fearing social media, I believe practicing our communication skills would be a worthy use of our time.
