Our Life In Social Media

In this social media world, is it necessary to express our so-called “knowledgeable thoughts” to others? In this busy world,  we always come up with not understanding the concept and always rush to the idea of solutions. We feel excited when we get some good news. We always want to express this to others, right? But, what if we get some bad news. Yes, this too we express to others but few people do write this somewhere on the internet.

We all have seen the world in our ways. Some face-to-face , some on the internet. Whether through pics or through written posts, we have seen all. But is it worth posting such things on the internet?  Well, in today’s world, we have major deep privacy settings. So, even if you type a long message, and you want that one person to read it, then mind you, that person is reading your post, laughing at your post, deleting your post, ignoring your post, unfriending you and still you will have no clue of it. Because of our latest privacy settings.

So, what’s the use? You wanted that person to react but he / she didn’t even bother. And then you get msg from any random person, whom you never thought of and what ? he / she will start telling his / her own stories rather  than solutions. So you end up being more depressed and unhappy. This is the world my friend!. Where people are ready to hear the good news and ignore the bad and depressed one. 

Let’s take a few scenarios here. Lets imagine, in this pandemic you got a job. (Wow, awesome feeling right). You want to share this news to someone. You start calling one by one to all the near and dear ones, you tell them how you struggled to get the job. Everybody will listen and congratulate you. Right? (prayers for everyone to get settled). Now, the second scenario, You lost your job due to the pandemic and you need a job to meet your financial needs. So you start calling one by one, but who will listen to you. Even if your story is true, that you got fired because of no-reason, yet  people will come up with their own stories, and spread lies about you. Even though their company has a vacancy, still they will judge you for your past and not offer the job to you. They know you need financial help right now, still they will not give you money. Forget about this pandemic, people will not help you financially, in any condition. and will always be away from you.

Here comes the online scenario. Many people took help of social media to express themself. Some say it’s very bad. I used to think it’s a very bad idea to write everything online. But there is one different angle to it. People write not to put their own dear-ones down, but to start a conversation. and hence people started writing their posts online. Whether it is facebook, twitter or instagram, people don’t leave any social medias’ now. People even mention that they are taking a break from social media. Yes, all people read, Even the concerned person reads, But get response from the person to whom we are not connected. 

But is this right? Yes, it’s completely right. In this social media world, where we have many friends online, one friend always comes forward just to say “hi hello”. Though he or she has no intention to help, they know by talking at least someone will feel better. To be honest, real friends also do this. But they also expect us to consider them as “busy”.

It happened a few days back,  my one comment on social media landed on their whatsapp group. Although the group is not active everyday, at least someone replies whenever others say “hi” or “good morning”. Feels good when someone shares an old pic, and the conversation starts with it.

So, If you don’t want to type your sad post, at least comment or share some old post, the conversation will start automatically. And hence if good, share with others and if bad share it online.. Good wishes.
