Art asked: “What do you have to tell those of us that use a computer but barely use a cell phone, and certainly not a smartphone. What can we do with social media?”
Art, you can pretty much do whatever you want with social media other than maybe use Snapchat.
Social media networks like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have web pages you can access using a computer, in fact, most of them started out on computers before catering to phones, and the reason they cater to phones is because that’s really what most people use to access the web these days.A lot of people who don’t need computer outside of the office don’t bother to buy them for home use anymore, and that’s very understandable considering that our phones can do the vast majority of what people use computers for. However, computers are still more powerful devices than phones are, and anything phones can do in the social media world computers can too.
If you feel like wasting some time on Facebook, by all means, go to Facebook.com, if you have too much faith in humanity, Twitter.com can cure that! Social media is internet-based, so usually accessing it from a computer is not a problem.
