Fitness, Health and Wellness Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes New Blog Asserting Social Media’s Exploitative Problems

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, writes about the possible health issues caused by social media’s meaningless connections.

NEW YORK, NY – January 10, 2011 – Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published a blog on her website about social media’s spam-like growth. The blog, titled “The Exploitation of Social Media” explains the reasons why friend- and follower-requests from strangers that have no interest in your personal or business cause cloud the true relationship possibilities offered by social media.

Dr. Anderson writes, “I realize the business uses of social media to build an online presence, visibility, and search-ability, but I am determined to get rid of the crabs of social media in my circle of online connections. The bottom line is that I refuse to be bombarded by ads for weight loss products or SEO promises on my Twitter feed. Followers that appear out of the blue with no purpose are akin to junk mail – and I’ll reject them like I do spam.”

“The true gravity of the health consequences of social media is the risk for illness and declined healing. Many studies show that people who have a strong community or social circles have decreased illnesses of their body and mind. In fact, they heal faster from sickness and surgery… I choose to keep my social media networks exploitation-free and I encourage you to do the same in your own social media circle.” asserts Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the Real World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
