Let me check out Instagram. I heard of it, but I've never used it before, so I'm going to create an account on the site right now.

If people are stupid enough to let Instagram control their lives, then it's not Instagram that's the problem, it's them.

These children need gods. If they have an omnipresent being following them around everywhere, they'll be happy.
God or you know...spiders.

Instagram is a business platform.

If people would stop looking at social networks as a place to post cat pictures, trite ruminations of youthful emotions, or underage pornography, you would find that networks like Instagram or Vine or Snapchat are an excellent vehicles to start and promote a small business of your own.

There are lots of people using Instagram to sell their creations... from candles, to photography, to concrete counter tops, to lawn mowing services, to used cars, and thousands of other "things" or services.

The problem is that there is an entire generation becoming addicted to praise. Social networks are praise based societies, and praise is more powerful than a drug like heroin. Thus the reason why some people might be concerned that social networks add no net positives to the broader human experience. However, that doesn't mean that all connectivity is bad.

Start a small business, say candle making, and sell your wares via Instagram. Use connectivity to make a difference to you, your local community, and the world around you instead of constantly feeding an insatiable addiction to praise.

Instagram itself isn't a bad idea, maybe they way some people use it is bad but I enjoy it. I've been on IG way back before Facebook bought it and it wasn't anything like it is now, I don't mean to sound like a hipster but IMO it was better before it became popular. It was mostly adults posting serious photography and people were generally polite for the most part. Despite that I still enjoy it and try to ignore all that junk

Perhaps that is why I am such a Tumblr whore.

Youtube is kinda whack. Some videos are misplaced in the education section or comedy section of Youtube. A lot of recycled jokes, clips, and self-discovery.

All these social media sites are terrible. Why can't kids these days just use chat rooms like normal people and type a/s/l and be happy? Damned punks need to get off my Internet with their new age ways of communicating.

It's so sad, nowadays everyone wants attention but they all got the same webpage; whatever happened to being an individual? Back in *my* day we created our own homepages by handcrafting html in a text editor and uploading it via ftp - the way the creators of the Internet intended! It was like a Jedi creating their own lightsaber, really; what would you think of a Jedi that just *bought* a lightsaber? Yeah, not a real Jedi, are they?

But this isn't the worst of it, oh no! Mark my words, dear readers, because the worst is yet to come! Before you know it they'll have Facebook implanted right into their heads! And where will we be then? People Facebooking while driving. People Facebooking while eating dinner with those they live with - not a family anymore, just some strangers that share some genes. People Facebooking during intimate moments! Is this what we want? Is this how we want to live in the future?

And lest you think this is merely a fad, a passing phase that will soon pass away, let me assure you the threat shows no sign of slowing down! On the contrary, these sites are multiplying like rabbits. Evil, time-killing, mind-devouring rabbits of the Internet!




And that is what we are up against, those of us that are working towards a brighter future where people shut the **** up about what's going on in their daily lives.
