What happens if you press share/what happens if you publish

A part of a larger amount which is divided among or contributed by a number of people

IT is not really rocket science that we live in a world that is so interconnected that more people know more about you than you can imagine. If we could allow some semblance we can always think about the internet as an inner-verse. An internal world to this one but a world that permeates our physical constructs and to a certain extend holds it in checks and balances as far as certain aspects of our modern society is concerned. i.e all the activities we do on the net both good and bad stuff

Let’s go on; take the throng of pseudo friends that are part of your own social networking accounts think about how many messages throughout the day they share with you. Think very carefully about the messages that they fire at their profile walls and how some of these messages or updates you don’t take serious because of who the messengers associated with those posts are. I encourage you to synthesize that number even further by again looking closely at the people whom you know personally either through your professional association or intimate relationships both past and present. Let us stay there a little bit. Of these people keep in mind only those you take serious amongst these so called friends; you will realize that there is probably a small chunk of these okes that you take serious. These are the klevas whom if they post something you take the trouble to read the entire entry even if you start first by scrolling down to tally the length of their whitty-whittly §

Inverse the scenario and think about your self and the space you occupy amongst your friends. Locate your self and gauge just what kind of a reaction you solicit from them whenever you say something nice or disturbing. You will have a clear picture of those friends you do not want to offend or alienate through the things you are saying. Even if you really are pissed off and you wanna let steam out chances are if you keep in mind who is going to read what you are about to say and you really care about what they think of you you will take a moment to reflect the repercussions of your actions in foresight. And of course there are those who are gate crushing, the encroachers in your life you couldn’t care less what they think of you. However remember they are part of your network too, nevermind their clinginess. They have stayed up to this point in your cyber circle of friends. Their stay can only mean two things. For them you are either a shadow amongst many that props their profile upright and they have even forgotten about your existence except on one of those occasions when you say something so profound that even you yourself are left speechless by your flawless deftness and ingenuity. On the other hand you could really matter to them and they could really-genuinely admire your person and have decide to follow you closely. And here is exactly where you need to be very cautious §


Keep in mind that we live in the age of a litmus flare-up fame where the nano second between hitting click to publish and the thought to publish something for the world to marvel at demands us to pause and review the tumultuous effects of that minute-minutiae action that would shockwave from the share or publish action


When you realize that people really do heed what you say. It is time to step back a little bit and edit your self whenever you’re chinked up to say something. No matter how well intentioned, proud and steadfastly you may hold to your ideals or opinions on all things wonderful this is where things gets ultra dangerous, and (allow me to say) even interesting – because on the account of the sheer number of people you influence, because you have stepped beyond the shadow of nonentity into the limelight, you need to be as careful as a feline. People, ahem, your followers that is, take it very personal what you say, how you say it and when you say whatever it is that you are chinked up about and they will take you to task and hoist you by the end of responsibilities twine. It’s even worse when your person is seen as the epitome of a particular ideal that the masses aspire to embrace one day. Keep in mind that we live in the age of a litmus flare-up fame where the nano second between hitting click to publish and the thought to publish something for the world to marvel at demands us to pause and review the tumultuous effects of that minute-minutiae action that would shockwave from the share or publish action. There is no reverse button savvy that; funny to think about the fact that our words are still not sparrows thanks to the internet and its spawns of apps words can be etched from a click-share sequence to define who were are forever never mind our spare of the moment action thrust by our impulse to let the world know what we think. We can be the casualty of our doing or the internet can be the amplifier of the real ‘us’ §
