Social media has us all hooked in some way or another. From tweeting our thoughts to Instagramming our meals to sharing our cat photos on Facebook.

Well, almost everyone. A few weeks ago I asked my grandma if she had ever used Instagram. “No never,” she said. “But grandpa uses it for his eczema.” Hmm. Okay.

Here at the Channel24 office we focused our attention on our social media presence this week. From Pinterest to YouTube we took a closer look at how we interact with our readers.

Each platform has its own challenges and some even have a completely different audience. Weird right? But we love a challenge!

It seems like we aren’t the only ones that love to communicate with our fans via social media. Celebs use it as a tool to promote their latest projects or express their personal issues.

Just look at all these recent celeb stories sprouting from social media:

Justin Bieber has a whoops down stairs – then instagrams it

Jim Carrey disses his new movie – on Twitter

A photo of Victoria Beckham smiling – Shared by David on Instagram

Amanda's latest shocking surgery – update regularly via her Twitter account

Are you a social media addict? Do you tweet in your sleep? We’d love to hear from you. Send us an e-mail at or just tag us on Facebook or Twitter and we’ll talk back. Promise.

Until next week,


Who cares???
