I just have to say that social media and technology is helping me so so much to be able to stay in touch with everyone back home. I cannot imagine how hard it must have been moving abroad just 15 years back when there weren’t all these options to connect with my friends and family back home.
So yesterday I had a skype/wine date with a friend which just makes me so, so happy 😀 !
I keep chatting my day-to-day with my friends over Whatsapp. Talking to my family over whatsapp, seing updates from life back home on Facebook and get to have some insight into my friends and their kids’ life on Snapchat. I have a group with a couple of friends on Facebook where we can discuss what is happening on Norwegian TV or they can update me on current affairs from my hometown. I have another group on Instagram where we motivate each other to work out- it is fantastic when I think about it!
It just makes me so happy, and makes this possible- that I can live abroad and love it!
So thanks Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), Niklas Zennstrôm og Janus Friis (Skype), Evan Spiegel (Snapchat), Brian Acton and Jan Koum (Whatsapp), Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger (Instagram) and alllllll the other technologies that makes this possible- I appreciate it!
