Social Media is everywhere; it’s integrated into every platform and, let’s face it, it’s here to stay.

It lead to a plethora of other smart devices and, ultimately, was the catalyst for the development of the Droid and Apple platforms that now dominate the smart-device market.

Today, we are connected 24/7 through every platform, on demand, almost anywhere we go. We really can’t avoid the trap of using and consuming socially driven content.

However, like everything in life, there must be limits. The enjoyment of using these platforms can evolve into an unhealthy obsession that may not only be problematic for you but for those closest to you in real life. The signs of addiction are everywhere, and if you care about your friends and loved ones, you will want to take steps to change things.

I am a content strategist, designer and developer. I use my experience as a magazine art director and web editor to help publishers, marketers, non-profits and self-branded individuals tell their stories in words and images. I follow all of the technologies that relate to the content business and try to identify the opportunities and pitfalls that these technologies pose. At the same time I am immersed in certain sectors through my content practice and am always looking to find connections between the worlds of neurology, economics, entertainment, travel and mobile technology.
