Social media is one of the biggest things of our generation.  About 99% of the people I know have at least one form of it, even my parents and grandparents!  If you’ve been keeping up with my channel, then you’ve seen one of my recent videos talking about the power of social media and why it’s so important.  I just wanted to expand on my thoughts on how our generation can use social media for the right reasons!

Chelsea Crockett - Social Media

For me, I live a lot of my life on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, etc.  With the following I have, I feel like God has given me a platform to help further His kingdom by posting different verses, quotes, or my own thoughts that have impacted me.  That being said, I use social media as a way to spread the love of God to all of my followers because I believe in the power of social media!  My point is not that you need to tweet about God or the Bible.  My point is that social media can make a different and it DOES make a difference.  That’s why being positive and solely uplifting is more important than you think!  If you’re only logging on to complain or post negatively, then maybe you should rethink why you have social media in the first place.    

Start using social media to spread love instead of hate!  If we as a generation made this our mission, we’d be unstoppable! 🙂

Love, Chelsea

Biblical Tips on How To Avoid Facebook Drama

Facebook Drama: We have all been involved in it one way or another, whether we were the one who started it or an innocent bystander. Whatever the case, it is never a pleasant experience. As a lover of Jesus I try to hold myself to a code of higher “social media ethics” and take the higher road, but petty arguments, rude comments, and subtweets sometimes test my patience. To avoid the hurt, annoyance, and all around nastiness of Facebook drama, here are 5 ways to avoid it that are inspired by the Bible.

  1. Never comment when you are angry: Proverbs 15:1 says: “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh answer stirs up anger.” Your quick-tempered comment might sound great today, but tomorrow you will probably regret it.frabz-facebook-drama-facebook-drama-everywhere-298113
  2. Tame your jealousy monster: So your best friend and her boyfriend are totally cute and post completely adorable selfies all over their timeline and you are 100% single. So what? Be happy that they are happy! Facebook brings out the jealousy in all of us, but just remember that although they take cute pictures and make cute statuses, things aren’t always flowers and rainbows for them.
  3. WWJP?: This stands for “what would Jesus post?” and this is pretty self-explanatory. It goes for comments as well as posts. Knowing what is appropriate to post and what isn’t will save you lots of drama in the long run!
  4. Forgive and forget: As Elsa would say, “Let it go!” Let your social media grudge go. Jesus calls us to forgive. Yeah, it is hard, but you will be so much better for it in the end!

Facebook is great, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes it can be more of a hassle than anything! As the Bible says in Philippians 4:8, we are to focus on the things that are right and noble and pure and admirable. This goes for Facebook! Let your page reflect you as a Christ follower and let it be a platform for God to use you as an example for others!

Social Media Don’ts

Social media is both a blessing and a curse. Once something you put online is out there, you can’t take it back! With how often us teenagers log on to Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc., we need to learn the ropes for what NOT to do on social media. Here a little guide I like to live by:

  • Don’t start an argument! We’ve all seen those Twitter fights that we know the person will regret later. Don’t try to “subtweet” anyone just to push their buttons. Be the bigger person!
  • Don’t be inappropriate/offensive. Ever hear the saying “think before you speak?” Well… you should think before you tweet too! First of all, don’t say or do anything you wouldn’t say in person. You might think you can get away with posting something inappropriate, but chances are, your teacher/coach/parent will see it. It’s definitely not worth it!Chelsea Crockett - Facebook Don't Like
  • Don’t deal with relationships online. I’ve seen breakups happen and escalate for everyone to read on their feeds. Keep that private! Chances are you’re just making the relationship worse. The best way to solve your problems is face-to-face!
  • Don’t be afraid to be yourself! One of the coolest things about social media sites is the freedom to express yourself. If you’re into photography, Instagram’s for you! Maybe you write poetry and want to tweet it for others to relate? Don’t hold back if you want to show your creativity :)!
  • Don’t associate with people you don’t know. This has been told to us ever since we could first use a computer. Stranger danger is actually a thing! Be careful!

Although there are many things to think about when logging into your account, the main thing is to make sure you’re having fun. Don’t overthink it :)!

Good luck! – Chels

As thought by our grandparents, social media is the “route to all evil”.  Our generation is constantly on our phones or iPads, checking twitter and Facebook, and editing pictures for Instagram.  Although social media may be taking over the world, it isn’t all bad!

Social media is a great way to express yourself through photographs, thoughts, and ideas.  Some use it as an outlet to post their passion for photography or wise words!  It’s also a great way to Chelsea Crockett- social media proskeep in touch with people and raise awareness for multiple events/causes.  Facebook and Twitter have started becoming more and more inspirational.  Uplifting quotes from popular accounts and celebrities have been hitting the Twitter timeline more frequently and stories that give you faith in humanity again have started popping up all over Facebook timelines.

On the downside, social media has its negatives.  It has taken over the lives of teens all over the world.  It has also become a place to complain and vent about their lives or other people through Facebook statuses.  Unfortunately, it has also been a target for cyberbullying.  Making fun of how someone looks in their pictures has become a nationwide trend causing many teens physical and emotional harm.  If you’re going to use social media, use it to uplift, inspire, and show off your creativity.  Prove to the world who YOU are in a positive light!

Love,

Chelsea

Social Media: Watch What You Post

I’m sure you all are on social media, am I right? If not, at least you have probably heard of it! I’m talking about Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, all that jazz….

I’m sure you all are on social media, am I right? If not, at least you have probably heard of it! I’m talking about Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, all that jazz. Today I am going to tell you how important it is for you to watch what you say and post on social media, because when you post something, it is out there forever.

I know how tempting it might be to comment on someone’s picture or status and tell them how you really feel, but hold your tongue. Watch what you say, because other people are watching how you react and respond such as future employers. Yes, I said it, your future boss can look you up on social media and see just who you really are! That is an important point. Do not post anything on the internet that you wouldn’t want your boss/parents to see, because it will find their way to them.  According to CareerBuilder.com, 25% of employers check your social media sites when deciding whether or not to hire you.chelsea crockett social media

Also, never put much personal information on social media sites. By posting where you are at all times and putting personal information in your “bio” on the sites, you could put yourself in danger. Another risk of social media is cyber bullying.  Odds are, you have been cyber bullied or you have been the one bullying. Cyber bullying can be something as simple as commenting on someone’s status or picture with a rude remark. Words hurt, girls. Next time you are tempted to comment on something or post something mean, think about the verse Luke 6:31, which says “Do unto others as you would have them do to you.” I know it might be hard to hold your tongue, but be the bigger person!

I hope this article makes you think twice before posting anything on social media!

Love you guys,

XOXO, Chels

 My iPhone is one of my favorite things I own.  It allows me to take goofy pictures and keep in touch with my friends, lets me communicate with my fans through the Internet, and of course, enables my mom to get a hold of me at any time during the day.Frown  I don’t know what I’d do without it!  Many of you have been curious as to what apps I use and what’s on my phone.  Here’s a breakdown of my favorite iPhone apps!Chelsea Crockett- apps

            I’m sure, like me, you all are addicted to social media.  How could I communicate with all of my amazing Insiders if it wasn’t for the Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine and the BeautyLicious app?  These are 5 of my favorite apps and I love to be very active on them.  I also have the ProTuber app, which is just a more advanced version of YouTube.  As you all know, I’m on YouTube A LOT. 

            If you’ve ever checked out my Instagram account, you’ll soon figure out how much I love taking pictures.  My phone is filled in editing apps!  One of my favorites is called PicPlayPost where you can add a video in with a collage of pictures to upload on your Instagram.  If you’ve got bad skin, try the app PhotoWonder to smooth out your skin for a flawless look!  Last, what iPhone would be complete without a game or two?!  My favorite game at the moment is Minion Rush!  You better check it out!

Teenagers and young adults alike are glued to their phones.  It’s rare to go to dinner or watch a movie without one person checking Twitter or updating their Facebook status.  While social media is fun, it can also be dangerous.  Monitoring yourself and others can save you from trouble in the future.  Take caution when using social media!Chelsea Crockett- caution on social media

Did you know that what you post on social media could keep you from getting a job or getting into college?  That’s right!  College admissions and employers now check a variety of social media accounts including Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook in order to see what their possible student or employee is posting.  If you are underage and post pictures with alcohol in them, you get could turned down.  Likewise, if you are always using profanity or making fun of someone, that can be a major red flag.  Many don’t realize that what you post on different social media accounts is very important.  It can actually determine what happens in your future!

Next time you are about to post a picture, status, tweet, etc., make sure it is something that you would be okay with your grandparents seeing!  This could save you from a world of trouble!

Be safe!
