Our interactions with family and friends are often social media-dependent. If grandma and mom aren't privy to a party or event, oh well. We'll tell them about it a week later. Our Instagram and Facebook friends see pictures of an event before family even knows there was one in the first place.

Watching really bad TV shows/movies: I have a confession to make. Of this, I am an expert. Think something bad, something so, so bad, it's actually good. The Bachelor is a great example of this, and the finale this Monday (which I totally didn't see), an even better one.
