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?
