We all have seen the boom in the social networking in the last years.
Friend’s (find a person to fuck networks) like facebook has been booming for already 5+ years, professional business networks like Linkedin and xing are becoming an absolute requirement for everybody that has to be a player in the business realm.
Moving forward the list is endless orkut , my opera , twitter , flickr you name it ..
What is the big lie about social networks? The Social word.
There is anything else but social in this networks.
You make an account join a network and start exploring a dead binary data in form of picture music, irc chat, or play games alone or with others. The amount of time you spend in front of a computer screen an ipod, iphone, ipad or IFUCK! 🙂 gradually increases.
People are starting to become an electronic zoombies, live interactions like a simple game of football outside, chess tournament a simple coffee or tea with friends is starting to become an extraordinary thing.
People share more and more, it’s important to share the best of you it’s important to create a false image of yourself in let’s say facebook , it’s generally important for most people to look good on their uploaded pics to smile and share everything they do in real life.
In practice if you have signed up in any social network and do actively post your information you’re building an online very thorough dossier (record) of everything you do.
Your online record that large computer software and manifacturers like Microsoft and Google does most probably already own a tremendous record of who you’re what you do, why you do it and how you do it!
What makes it even worse it’s voluntary you’re transperant, you share your thoughts you create new identity, you hide under a new avatar to build just one big lie identity.
How it comes that people knows each other that well that they could share themselves that much? Maybe I ask too much, but it’s a fact.
How can go into creating new identities, if are not even aware of what our own identity is.
Have you felt that bad feeling, when you see a lot of morons in facebook posing like a great and glorious people?
The rule in the social networks is the more dumb you’re the better, be opened, share everything, share your soul …
All I describe is a enormous breach of privacy and the consequences for the real life interactions of people are really destructive.
We are so social on the internet today, that the internet has become our second home, maybe our first one? Maybe we live in the virtual reality? Where all this meaningless insanity would end up?
And what is even worser about social networks is that they’re all about money, it’s also true for the internet, even though it started as a promising and good intention, when business entered they turned it into a dead place for business.
The fun of the old computer glorious days is no more. Computers and the coproduced technologies are being used inefficient increative and binding.
We don’t even have control over the social networks, it’s all a large database filled with information about millions of people around the globe owned by a business company.
The more people interact with technology and the more pseudo social they become, they’re all becoming in an inexistent imaginary place that constantly reshapes and takes forms.
The old sanity we all had is lost somewhere in the days …
