The World We Live In – Technology is Not Bringing Us Together

  • In my opinion social media was a social experiment that can no longer be controlled.
  • We have a president that bullies people on social media via Twitter.
  • The faster the technology comes, the more we depend on it and we don’t use the most powerful computer known to mankind which is the human brain.

Today is July 7, 2019 and the world we live in is in complete disarray. Real is not real. Fake is in. Petty has replaced common sense along with common decency. We have a crook in the oval office; and not a good one may I add.

Everything revolves around social media likes and comments. The world is at a point where doing something “out of the kindness of your heart” has to be documented for a later release. It seems as if love has lost the ongoing battle to vanity. What happened to morals? What happened to genuine people? In my opinion social media was a social experiment that can no longer be controlled. From something that was supposed to bring us together to something that drives depression, murders, suicides, etc.

I’m not blaming all the world’s problems on social media but I think it fuels a large percentage of them. Think about it. We have a president that bullies people on social media via Twitter. Some people would commit murder on camera over a social media “beef” as opposed to getting beat up on camera.

Social media are interactive computer-mediated technologies that facilitate the creation and sharing of information, ideas, career interests and other forms of expression via virtual communities and networks.

It’s people literally making fools of themselves to go “viral.” People of all races and ethnicities perpetuate stereotypes for a like. Who do those likes come from? What value do they add to your life?

We’ve become brainwashed by technology. The computers have already taken over. Take a look around. The faster the technology comes, the more we depend on it and we don’t use the most powerful computer known to mankind which is the human brain.

Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying that social media is not a powerful tool, but only when used right. I get it if you have a talent to monetize, than yes social media is a powerful tool. I don’t know if twerking applies, but if that’s your talent than aye.

All I’m saying is please don’t let social media define who you are as a person. What’s the point in living on the internet like The Sims when people know you in real life? Who are you fooling, your followers or yourself?

There’s so much more to life than a like. The ironic part is that social media has replaced social skills, from how to talk to a woman, to how to talk to a man, to how to conduct an intelligent conversation.  I’m not bashing social media but at the same time this is not the end all be all.
