I Love You More Than I Love Social Media

Social MediaNo doubt, social media has become a ubiquitous part of our lives.

Some go to bed with social media. Others wake up to social media.  And, during the day, many of us check our social media more often than we check our email.

I love social media, and it shows.

Unfortunately, on more than one occasion, my daughter has sadly exclaimed: “Daddy, put down that iPhone and play with me.”

“Of course, I will play with you. Just give me a minute to jot down a few more notes for a new blog post I am writing.”

Lilyann, this blog post is for you.

My dearest,

1. I love you more than teenagers love Snapchat.

2. I love you more than Mark Zuckerberg loves Snapchat.

3. I love you more than the social web loves cats and bacon.

4. I love you more than Guy Kawasaki loves Google+.

5. I love you more than this guy loves double rainbows.

6. I love you more than Jeff Bezos loves weird ideas that just may work.

7. I love you more than astronauts love David Bowie.

8. I love you more than smart phones love dumb apps.

9. #ILoveYouMoreThan Jimmy and Justin love #hashtags.

10. I love you more than social media gurus, ninjas & enthusiasts love social media.

11. I love you more than Taylor Swift loves to sing about bad relationships.

12. I love you more than the Oxford dictionary loves selfies.

13. I love you more than a blogger loves comments.

14. I love you more than words or social media can say.

Have a delightful and lovely Valentine’s Day!
