This post is specifically about social media, and its implications for women. I am writing this from the perspective of a woman, but I think the issues are universal. We have more choices than ever before, and as a result, some of our behaviors are no longer appropriate for our current circumstances.
Social media has given us too much power, and it has also given us too much control. We can change our appearance, our friends’ behaviors, and even our actions on Twitter. We have the ability to broadcast our thoughts, feelings, and opinions all over the world, and we can also share these via text, email, photo, and video. At the same time, these same interactions can also be used against us.
It’s hard to believe that just because we’re on social media with a Facebook or Twitter account that we can’t actually be Facebook-followers. We are people, and that’s the only way we can act on this.
But this is a bit unfair. I am a public figure, and I choose to communicate via social media. I choose to take photos and video of myself in situations that I feel strongly about. I choose to share these images and videos with my friends, and I choose to post those photos, videos, and messages on Facebook and Twitter when I would like to. I choose to be a public figure because I like it.
So many people, myself included, can’t actually be people. That’s the real problem. We’re just people, and we like to talk about ourselves, and we like to pretend to be other people, and we like to post pictures and videos and messages that we think we’re the people that they feel like they’re seeing. That’s sort of like being a public figure.
I think this is the same problem we have with blogs in general. We feel like we have to be “real” to be taken seriously, but are really just people who write blog posts that we think of as “real”.
A blog is just what it says it is. The problem is most of the time, we are just people writing things we don’t know how to say or what people are actually thinking. We all do it. And for the most part, we’re not doing much of it anyhow. We’re just kind of talking to our own selves, and people reading our blogs are just kind of talking to themselves.
To try and put it in a more positive manner, we’re not talking about getting high, we’re talking about blogging. We think of blogs as real things, but this is just our own words. And if you’re reading a blog and you’re not sure it’s real then it’s probably just a joke. A joke that no one else is laughing at.
It’s good to be joking but it’s not always a good idea to be putting yourself on a pedestal. It’s easy to put yourself on a pedestal with the right words and with a lot of confidence. And we all know how easy that is if youre a kid who thinks that youre better than everyone who’s reading your blog. That is not a good thing to do in social media, which is why you’re reading this.
It seems like every Facebook page is a Facebook page, and your social media profiles are all a Facebook page. If you’re not on Facebook, you’re probably on Google Plus, and it’s not something that can be done to your own Facebook page. And yet if you’re on Facebook, you’re still on Google Plus, which is a really good thing for your privacy.
