Socially Addicted

Social Media; toxic and yet so addictive. Who in this day and age is not part of some sort of Social Media Community? Just take a quick look around, spot the two most common addictions. Probably half of the people you see are occupied with their mobile phone checking some sort of social app.

Now I am not saying I am the exception, cause of course I jumped on the bandwagon just like the rest.
I check my Facebook page on a regular basis, but every time I see a picture posted by someone showing me what they are eating at that exact moment, I wonder if they just try to make me hungry, jealous or perhaps they think people are actually interested.

Earlier I watched a video, and paused to laugh for this great sentence:

and the list goes on and on… And it is so true! Did you know the whole concept of Twitter was derived from text messaging, I don’t know about you, but my text messages aren’t half as personal as those on Twitter. It makes me wonder though, why do people feel the need to share every single thing with the rest of the world?

However, when it comes to cameras on the street, being used for national security people freak out and say it is in violation with their right to privacy.

In the end aren’t we the ones who make it possible for this high-tech world to exist where everything is possible and excepted?

I’ll tell yah, next millionaire in the biz will be the person inventing a “nicotine patch” for social media, perhaps it will be me?!

Anyway time to say goodbye, I’ll just leave you hanging with this last comment:

“We don’t have a choice on whether we DO social media, the question is how well we DO it. – Erik Qualman
