Social Media and Some of the Anti-Social Stuff That Goes On.

It seems to me that these days it seems to be important how many friends we have on every and all social media.  

social media, anti social behaviors, beware

Social Media and You

You are no-body if you have less than 100 friends on Facebook, you are no-body if you don’t have at least 1K in followers on Pinterest, likewise if you don’t have at least 3 circles on Google + with hundreds of followers,  you might as well stop everything you are doing and correct that short coming.  

But, I need to be clear, with all these friends and circles and followers, there are maybe only a hand full of people that I trust.  That totals 5 to 10 at the very most, and even those have different levels of trust factor.  There are maybe only one or two that know my innermost secrets and I aim to keep it that way.

I will not give out personal information on any Social Platform.  If you want to know about me, then you had better find a way to meet me in person and it better not come as an invite from any Social Media Platform.  

My on-line persona and my off line persona are quite different.  I will not respond to private messages that give me a hotmail account to respond to.  My curiousity about whatever it is you want to discuss with me,  has just ended.  So save yourself and myself the trouble and Don’t Bother!

If you want to know more about me, then follow me for a while, respond or acknowledge my posts. If you ask questions of me, and they are within my comfort zone of answering, I will.  If they are inappropriate for our level of intimacy, then I will let you know that too.  

I don’t want or expect that anyone will want to know more than what I post here, in the open, for all the eyes of the world to see. What I share in these Social Platforms is not the core of who I am, but rather some of my thoughts and some of my feelings about what is going on around me.  The personal stuff is for close friends who come and eat with me and spend time (sometimes hours) just relaxing and talking about the world around us.  

Friends are not what you find on Social Media, but I guess calling them acquaintances just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

    I had to look to know that I am a little bit over 100 FB friends lol. But a few of those are hidden from most things as they are only there to help with a couple of games I have. What amazed me was how many class mates suddenly wanted to friend me when we never spoke to each other in school let alone stay in touch after.

    It really is amazing how many people are on FB…..but it’s also a great place to find out what people you knew way back when are doing now. Still you have to be cautious.

    Social media users most of them are fake. I am also very selective in choosing my friends in that media, especially Facebook. This is reality and I am bragging it. I have more than 12,000 friends and followers in my Facebook Page. I created it for school ICT coordinators. I have set a schedule in interacting with them of things related to school technology and communication.

    Wow, that is a lot of “friends” indeed… with that many you would spend the whole day just filling in what is happening with them….I’d never get any work done….Good Luck with it, glad you can handle it.

      As for me, I am able to handle them and other members are extending their help in gratis. I never use my day to be with them. I usually do it during night time.

    It is so strange how many in the world devote their days to keeping up with people they don’t know, products they don’t care about, etc. For those with a real life-enough is enough. Why are some trying to satisfy strangers with their numbers and activities.

      You are so right Pat. I clicked on someone’s link who told me they had 12,000 friends. I was curious. Well guess what… lead me right into a virus. I should have known better!

  6. Olivia Morris Post author

    maybe a bit of insecurity or just dumbly following the crowds….who knows, what I do know is that there are many people out there just willing to share viruses, and all kinds of other “not nice stuff”……why, I don’t know, just to be really pains in the neck I guess.

    Social media has done so much changes in our lives. Privacy and even day to day activities that were used for family only event or personal thing now are all in media. I don’t share a lot of stuffs too on Facebook and seldom open or interact with my friends anymore, it seems not healthy anymore for me. Everyone is competing with a lot of things.
