Why meet new people or go out with friends when you can stay home, post stuff on the internet, and get almost instant approval from a world of people you don’t know and will likely never meet. Such is the joy and ease of social media over social life. But even with all this social approval and “connection”, do you ever wonder if perhaps we’re still missing something?
Be Here Now is an attempt to bring us into the present moment from wherever we might be (on social media) if only for a brief moment. By selecting our platform of choice (twitter, facebook, instagram, etc.), we will be notified of the all-important likes, favourites, shares and retweets in the form of fire notification.
1. Because fire is scary (and can spread really quickly if we’re not careful). 2. Because we really don’t want to die, we want to live (so we’ll pay attention)! 3. Because in order to live life we need to experience it. 4. Because life is made up of moments and the only way to experience a moment is to be aware in the moment. 5. Because we can have social media and life. Why choose?
Try it for yourself! Now. Now. Be here now.
