Interests
Posted this on facebook concerning a widely circulated video. What are your thoughts?



So, this is the video everyone seems to be talking about. A rather pretentious and rhyming piece, criticising social media, which, ironically, is being shared by the thousands on social media like facebook and Twitter. I don't know about you, but I like social media. I like the fact that I can be friends with people from all around the world, rather than only those who I meet because I happen to live close to them, or because I happen to work with them.

Now I do realize that being friends in the real world is different from online contacts, but that doesn't mean that being friends online is completely meaningless, which the maker of this video obviously doesn't think. I like to share my experiences not just with the people who happen to stand right beside me during a beautiful sunset, but with everyone I know on facebook, DeviantArt or Twitter.

Does that mean that I spend my life looking down at my cellphone, ignoring everyone? Of course not. It just means that I make use of commonly available technology to interact with people who I wouldn't even know if it weren't for the internet. But according to mister rhymes a lot, that's apparently completely irrelevant, since I have to look at a screen. Well boo-hoo, guess we're all mindless robots then.

But keep on sharing it, I'm sure you'll all suddenly throw away your cellphones and laptops after having seen this video. No? Oh well, then why the heck does everyone keep sharing it? Does it make everyone feel better about using social media if you share anti-social media videos? Seriously, I have no idea why everyone on facebook keeps sharing this video instead of, you know, getting off facebook if they think social media is that unholy.
