Strong Evidence That Social Media Bridges the Gap between Social Isolation and Mobility Limitation


I don’t know where I would be if it not for the social media and the internet of today. Okay that may sound a little strange. But look back at just how far technology has come from car phones to cell phones and smart phones. For me I feel like technology is an equalizer and it can really bridge the gap when going out in winter when snow makes such travels more challenging

Social Media the Bridge between Social Isolation and Mobility Limitation

Living in a climate where our winters feel longer than anything else, sometimes I find it a challenge to get out and about. I find that is a time when it is especially nice to grow up in the age of the internet.This makes it easier to be social especially in winter because where I live the snow in the depths of winter can make it a challenge to be social but the internet can bridge that gap that would otherwise have been created

Limitations of Winter Are Gone because of social media

Social media and other forms of social engagement on the Internet remove any limitations of being socially engaged that are caused by physical limitation. In my case, I find it difficult to get out more in the winter months when the snow makes my mobility a bit more challenging.

Do you see benefits of social media in your own life? If so, what are they? I am interested to know your thoughts on the subject.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
