Shattered Lives Radio welcomes returning guest Pamela Katz Ressler to discuss a topic that’s showing great interest; what personal stories should, or shouldn’t, be shared on social media? With the increase of users there has been a trend to use social media platforms as the neighborhood fence to talk with one another about all the ups and downs of the day, and, in many cases, our illnesses, tragedies, and diseases.
Pam Ressler’s article written for Cognoscenti addresses the issue of writing, blogging, or discussing the very personal aspects of our lives. During the show we will delve into the fact that people are sharing very personal experiences and whether it’s always appropriate. Is there often a stigma attached to being so open, or are people finding support within their online communities?
