Addicted to Facebook

I don’t know about you, but I am so much addicted to the social networking site and other stuff. I hide this under my online marketing research :-P. As said, the life is changing. People have started ‘Liking’ a lot of stuff. Introverts are commenting. Photographers and Photoshoppers are uploading their pics. Yes, I have coined a term as ‘Photoshoppers’. Those who have no sense of photography, those who take photos, may be of some insect, or tree, or sky, or building or any random shit, come back, upload it on their laptop, Photoshop it, Auto correct it, play with colors and upload it on Facebook! sigh! The motive of taking photos is to upload it on FB.

Are the special moments of our life limited to photos for facebook upload?

Then there are few others who thinks and come up with funny and witty status message. See, making you all more creative. The rest of his friends then give him instant feedback so that he can improve! Two way communication. Then there are games. I was taken aback when I saw a book called ‘Facebook games guide’ at the famous mall in Thailand.

There will be a time when your kid will ask, ‘is there any wall in China which is bigger than the one on Facebook?’

I was sitting in one of our group meeting when one my friend secretly revealed that he has no FB account. That was the last thing he said before getting the status of social outcast! And why not, FB helps in breaking Ice if you wanna talk to someone who is in your class. I know of couples who are in a relationship with the help of Facebook, chat 24hrs but are never seen together in real life! See, it gives you the platform to express. You might not be comfortable in talking to a person face-to-face. Chatting is like a survival tool then.

The whole of India is starving and complaining of inflation,food prices, when most of the youth is playing Farm-ville.

Tell me, how many people do you actually know in your friend list? with whom you are comfortable talking? the one who can be called as ‘friends’? I have many ‘have I really talked with him’ friends or ‘ooh, he must be that one perhaps’ kinda friends. So let me change the legendary quote and say-

‘A friend in FB, is a friend indeed?’

We are so much interested in each others life, FB gives us freedom to ask, to comment, to like, to tag, to meet, to make friends(without any awkwardness). But whatever it is, when you are alone, and has got nothing to do, close the novel or any book you are reading and open Face-book.

Next time you click a photo, say ‘FB profile pic smile please’. And I am sure you will get the best smile 🙂 🙂 🙂

Do we have so much of time? or we take out time for the wrong stuff?

Is it information sharing or a waste of time?

    I rember being to those small villages where people after their work meet up, generally under a tree or meet up early in the day with the panchayat and discuss things……Faceboof is the new panchayat platform…..i hv nothg against ppl following Facebook or this internt culture bt i feel bad when i see the same ppl dont knw who their neighbours are….what about tht convential meetings which we had…..as a child i rember i knew everyone in my locality bt now i see my nephews and niece they know people living far away in US bt nt their neighbours……I know India is leading in IT industry bt its the same India wich has a culture of entire family having dinner togethr, where you are asked by your parents to go and spend some time with ur grand pa….I hope with this 21century culture of internet we are not missg out on somethg really precious….
    It doesnt matter how much u chat online or how pwerful ur web cam is…the essence of real meetings will always be there.

    whats the point of giving a platform to express in a virtual world…if u r living in real world n doing things in real word..this reminded me of the movie ‘WALL-E’.
    why is the Q i am asking why people turn towards lcd(2560×1600)screens than the highest resolution live picture.
    whats more interesting in virtual world than real world.
    is it that the V-world gives us blanket to hide under.
    so that u can become what u want to become than what u are.
    as u know its a 1min job to fool the public in v-world.
    or we have bcom to lazy.i hav been in a situation where a girl sitting 2feet away from me sends me a chat saying ‘Wazzap’i was confused should i reply to her on the chat box or should i talk.(what is that wch even made talkin on chat box a potential option with talkin with mouth in my mind)well i choose not to talk.
    bcoz i knew she was getting bored in studio had nothing to do so wanted to chat n so jst picked a random name on fb online list.i had better things to do…

    but one thing jst came to mind…
    when did virtual world came into existance..
    well what is letters…ppl who couldnt propose a girl/boy used to right a letter isnt it a type of virtual world in a way.fb is jst a upgraded version on letters.but with a lot of addictive elemts..
    got to go..will complete it later..
