Is social media all a time suck?

Is social media all a time suck?

It can be but I find it so rewarding to connect with people you’ll probably never meet otherwise. We’ve met some great people back in the day on Myspace, some of whom we now count as close friends.

Also you can reach out to artists whose work you’ve seen and admired. Like with Maria Hassadi and her piece Plastic.

You can tell them directly how their work affected you.

 

So social media isn’t all a time suck, I think it’s invaluable in creating, fostering and connecting with the creative community.
