What did actually happen to social networking? God only knows.
this was reminder to facebook this morning, i remember opeing up this account one day i got a email through saying this was the way to connect with pals! which hey it did that and have to say it was great for about 4 / 5 years until the younger ones started getting on, leaving there crappy bebo accounts to come to the big worls and cause trouble! Now not so long after that it started to shw when young adults start venting there anger off and causing more trouble which then spanned to adults im afraid. I personally use this for business and its effective i also have a block list as long as your arm!! here is a small list or problems.
- being stalked
- abuse from people
- abuse from family members
- people trying to add me with fake accounts
- people being negative
- people think you are talking about them when your not
Even though of all the down points we tend to carry on using it, i do write what i like to be honest i dont care who thinks im writing about them or what i write, because i really dont care! i think to be honest if facebook used the same segregation than google plus it would be a safer place to setup camp as we could which groups of people we want to hit with our posts, if they dont do this then we are right in depths of hell and bother.
So whats the alternatives?
i like twitter i spend a lot of time on twitter connecting with like minded people, whether it be music, computers, linux, tv shows right up to my local boozer and TV shows i watch! Tweeting cuts down the bullshit we write and gets down to bits of information we share and reaches a big audience from personal to business – twitter is a must just dont get drawn into following a load of dribble you dont want coming up on your feed.
Well google plus is what facebook should set its system out like – i use it more for technology and communicating for people in the linux and ubuntu world if i owned a droid id guess id use it more.
well its a handy resource for connecting in business and looking for employees, mew business and jobs and groups for information on jobs – but it lacks something – not sure what.
Im not sure what to say – seems like a nice place, i have a account but dont use it much, give it a go it might rock your boat.
All i can say is be-careful using the likes of facebook as there are some odd people out there, in the past few year ive had to block most of the people i know as i dont know who to trust. Rustling through my facebook to see who might be part of my stalking experience is my idea of fun. I have to say people who dont work should not be allowed access to facebook as these are the ones who have to much time on there hands to ruin every bodies lives.
ive even been told from people who live out of boil in the bags and chicken nuggets how to cook on facebook!
