Click Share And Like

People sometimes irritate the daylights out of me on social media.  It is like the place for responses that have absolutely no care or respect come out in full force.  I don't know what it is about typing into a screen, but its been this way too impersonal since the early message board and forum days of the internet.

Social media just makes this type of behavior that much easier.  After all, you can do it quicker and with more ease.  No need to read through long lengthy forum posts, just pop them one liners in the social media feed quicker than you can say snot.  LOL!

I know, we're all not a bunch of conscious human beings and it shows in politics and on social media.  It shows our ignorance more than we want to admit.  Does it have to be this way?  I'd like to say no, but I've got a feeling that unconsciousness will win out.

The happy platitudes, the ignorant and uncaring responses and those in your face sharing every article, link, and web page posted across the internet are more than enough in a day.  In fact, they are a waste of time for the most part.


Of course, most seem to think that if it is in a social media post, then its got to be true.  No need to check it out, because it sounds nice.  No need to have integrity in what you post, just pass it on with a click.

If we want to have a measure of relevancy and be taken seriously, then maybe we need to moderate all that we do online.  I know, I'm asking far too much out of people.  Honestly though, each day it seems to get worse.

If you say, just ignore it - well these days, the only way to ignore it is completely disconnect from all electronic devices and social media and the news and the "you fill in the blank".  It is nice to keep up with friends, but at times the noise that is hurled on social media in a day prevents that from happening.

It really is time to wake up to how we are living in this world.  We aren't helping it right now and no its not just the fault of the politicians.  It is each one of us.  Let's get back to what really matters, not what is easy to click and share and like.
