Social Media? Thought someone mentioned a famous name recently. I was tricked into registering, but don’t participate. Yep, a kiddo wanted me to join so I could keep up with what she’s up to. Finally arrived at her page, then it got more bizarre. What is a wall?
I realize it’s a losing battle, with people nothing more than chattel – but, I keep hoping we come to our senses before we all wear a number on our forehead (via chip). We are logged and numbered, but don’t have to look at it every day – until we buy something through any means other than cash. When the web goes down like melting blackberry pudding, having internet friends won’t mean much. “It’s just you and me, Babe,” will have a whole new meaning.
In the meantime, all was not lost. I decided to checkout a few other pages! There it was, in plain view, the personal lives and activities of so many people – I felt like I walked right into the middle of culture shock! Now, tell me please, how many pairs of shoes does a woman need? How many girlfriends does it take to make a young man happy? Are there really that many people that play all night, AND work all day? Why do so many hate their jobs and the people they work with?
Believe me, the stories are endless. Yes, I also saw some excellent pages that were interesting and salient to public relationships. The whole experience was enlightening and expanded my view of the world. I suppose that’s not all bad … especially for my perspective from a cow pasture barn in the middle of Texas.
