Social media can be a great way to find connection and conversation. People share everything from what they did over the weekend to their favorite events to causes they care about. Just today, I scrolled through some impassioned posts related to politics, parenting and college football. Those are certainly three areas that get people taking sides.

Many of you could answer these questions about your interests, but some of you may have given little thought to your passions. Here are a few questions to spark some fresh thinking:
