Social Network? Why?
Here’s an interesting Lug_Nut thought.
Communication is a very important to most, if not all RVer’s With all the latest wireless technology , internet, smart phones, GPS location devices, etc, I think we are pretty well equipped. After all, we can contact and keep in touch with friends and relatives regardless in the world they, or we, are. Our family and friends network is complete.
Not so, according to the multiple folks that Twitter and Face book off. What’s up with them? If they really want to let friends know something, why can’t they e-mail them? You can do it in a multiple recipient if it is many contacts you would like to advise. Instead, these lonely folks seem to need to post their life, perhaps in hope that they will be discovered as not a social dweeb!
Don’t these people have friends? Are these people in that need to reinforce their popularity? Are they insecure with their personal status? I guess so. There is no other reason why people would feel obligated to post everything they do, or are going to do, on any public site. Oh yes, they will tell you it is secure only to those “Friends”, (Many of which they have not seen for years or may be never). Hello! Hacking your information is probably “Internet 101, to break into any or all of this gibberish.
This social networking is supported by commercial enterprises, and probably for good reasons. If you owned a business, you would want to reach everyone you can. Why would a private individual ever want to expose their life to any and everyone? I can only assume that these people either are socially challenged or want to increase their popularity image, to others, or more likely to themselves.
Well, to each his own. They can keep what they are doing and I will too.
