Social network...The word says it all, we all know what it means on net. Today everyone of us have Twitter, Facebook, Orkut etc... accounts used as Social network which connects to you more and more people, making a chain of friends of friends of friends .... and friends!
This is good, to connect to friends and new peoples online. Also it seem to be an easy way to communicate, so its widely used. But have you ever thought what a real Social Network means? It means to live in Social group, to be Social by nature, attitude and doings. It means to be in relations other than colleagues, family and friends and keep them live.
We all know that human is the best creation of nature, and they evolved day by day with new things in life. But as our life goes ahead, we forgot the main logic behind mankind. It is, mankind is always different than other animals in a way he behaves. We all forgot this truth which makes us special and different than others.
Since mankind created on earth, man had always been in groups and created the societies. From there the world social came right? And today, what we have done? We have just kept the word, not the meaning. The social networking technology today is good for use, but not to be addicted much that you forgot your originality.
I always say, "man has created technology for his ease, not the technology created us". It always be in our control. It's same like SkyNet from "Terminator" Movie. Technology is taking our minds and being our basic need, it should not be.
Remember the time before 1995-1990s, when people used to talk on phones, send letters, visit their loved ones, make real communities who have meetings in month etc...They lived without net friends, and better than us I think. Ask your parents Or grand-parents, how they have enjoyed their life before, and you will know what you are really missing.
Find your real friends... relatives... neighbors ... family members from your parents' natives... and meet them face to face... Build your own relationships with such a real society, and let Facebook shame on itself. It's just a idea for earning by your online time wasting. I don't say it's a bad idea. Use it, but don't get addicted.
Be real... Be Social... by the rules of mankind's nature... Understand the root element of human life...Relations...Isn't it?
