A lot of people are asking me what I do for a living. I am a social media blogger. I write about fashion, health, and a lot more. I also offer workshops and presentations on how to use social media effectively. I would like to share with you what I share with my social media followers.
The term “social media” is used so casually these days that it sounds kind of like the buzzword of the day, but I actually think it has some useful, practical applications. Social media, or “social networks,” are websites and apps that allow people to connect with others in real life, whether they are just passing through or meeting for the first time.
Social media are not meant to be used for social interaction. In a way they are like a phone calls where we’re just looking at each other and hanging out. If we want to communicate, we’ll have a social network that will allow us to do so. These social network sites are like a virtual “conversation” with others whom we can share our ideas or opinions or whatever with.
The way people are using these social networks in our everyday lives is by sharing information. These social networks are not designed for sharing personal things.
The idea that we should post or share information on social networks is one of the most ridiculous ideas that I have ever heard. There is a reason why they are referred to as “social networks.” Our personal networks are public.
The idea that we should share information on social networks is based on an idea that no one has ever proved that we can really share anything. The concept is that by sharing information, we somehow prove that we know something. However, this belief is as faulty as it is ridiculous.
Even if we do have some sort of true knowledge of something, sharing it on social networks creates a situation where something we know is true is shared without our knowledge. Sharing information on social networks also means that we may or may not know it. If we’re sharing information about someone’s car accident, we might be sharing it without their knowledge as well. This is not what social media is about, and if you think about it, it’s also not what it’s about.
If we want to help people, we should focus on helping them feel at home. Not on making them feel as if they’re invisible. And if we make them feel as if they have an issue, then we create more of them.
Well, the way that it is now, it’s almost impossible to make a person feel comfortable in a social network and not share that person’s information. It doesn’t matter if we know that it’s true that the person in question is making her/him feel uncomfortable. It doesn’t matter if we know that the person in question is just lonely and miserable. It doesn’t matter if we know that he/she has good reasons for being miserable.
It all comes down to that simple word, “because.” If we make anyone feel like they have to justify everything or hide anything from the public, then that person will feel uncomfortable and will want to share that person’s information. If you know what I mean.
