Does social network mean a social structure made up of individuals or organizations which are connected by one or more specific types of interdependency, such as friendship, kinship, common interest, financial exchange, dislike, or relationships of beliefs, knowledge or prestige? Leaving the jargon and questionnaire aside, it has certainly caught up with the people around the globe. It has produced multi-billionaire college drop-outs, and certainly they are ranked high in the list of wealthiest people on earth, and more are expected to follow suit, going by the remuneration these fields are currently offering.
Social media can be tricky at times for people who are constantly making sarcastic remarks, snarky comments, or are just plain rude to everyone. Though they say old habits die hard, it’s important to stay away from such remarks on the Internet, since it’s often hard to find the humour in the comments when just reading online. The obvious classic eye roll sarcastic comment is part of my everyday life, so it will be on the virtual social front. Though it’s fun to joke around with some people’s misfortunate spoken ideas (especially when they just don’t understand sarcasm at all), these jokes don’t go over well on the Internet where facial expressions can’t be conveyed.
Rather than being funny, we probably either be seen as agreeing with or congratulating an idea that is truly horrible and be labelled as someone who comes up with horrible ideas themselves; or you’ll be seen as completely rude and unhelpful. Clearly, these are two categories you don’t want to fall under, so the best advice you can heed to is avoiding such sarcasm in posts (and yeah, host of others too!). Just because it’s blatantly obvious to you doesn’t mean the rest of the World Wide Web will understand the humour. And oh! Yeah, none of this matter when your comments are being shared among the closed ones, because it’s like when I read your posts, I can hear exactly how you would say it.
Social media can be more regarded as sociology and psychology more than technology. The “Face” of social networks has changed drastically even compared to the times when wireless networks became available. It accounts for nearly 25% of the Americans “timeline”; the numbers are definitely bound to increase. India, a country where more than 60% of the population don’t know the “networks” to get basic necessities of life, has more than 30 million social network users. An average facebook user has around 130 friends in its circle (that’s what Google prefers to call it); it’s not hard to suspect that many of them are just for numbers. In some ways, social networking levels the playing field of friendship stratification. In the real world, we have very close friends and then there are those you just say “Hi” to when you pass them on the street. However, the fact of positive feelings can’t be denied, as we are no longer depended on postman to deliver messages or “poke” for us. One out of every seven American is in a wedlock due to the so-called “Facebook”. Creative thoughts are being shared on-line, people quickly share their thoughts; our government is already contemplating to screen some which may be “derogatory”. So, the virtual arena is already showing its effect to the babus. On the whole, this viral is bound to remain, in one form or another, and there’s no looking back on the virtual social frontier.
