Not everyone is 'social'. Some of us are very private people. A few weeks ago some German sociologists and psychologists came up with the idea that there 'is something wrong with you' if you're not part of a Social Media group. On the contrary, there is 'something wrong' with them
for suggesting such a silly thing.
Before Google came, we had the internet...it was free and easy, you could go anywhere and look for anything. Now we have become near dependant on Google, Yahoo, etc, because they have muscled up to become the standard internet portals. They store information, and in Social Media, disseminate it...for money. The whole thing is unhuman and very sick. I haven't posted in Facebook for an awful long time now. I signed for Twitter a couple of weeks ago. More shite. I'd rather keep a long-hand diary...
It is becoming more necessary than a CV to have a PUBLIC profile on a social media portal. In many ways, our dependence on electricity and electronics is going to end in tears. All it takes is a solar storm to knock everything on Earth out. Everything. It is not something that 'might' happen, it is something that 'will' happen. Such events are not uncommon. In space time they happen all the time. In Earth time there are long decades between 'serious' storms...it may happen tomorrow, it may happen in 100 years. It WILL happen. We are building houses on water. Unfortunately, we cannot get a celestial event to knock social media out ONLY.
Right. I'm off to the Scottish Highlands now to rave with the locusts, John the Baptist style, that the World is going to end...sometime. I will baptise allcomers in Loch Ness, and wear the skins of a mountain Stag.
