How much is too much? How much Facebook, how much Twitter? Facebook and Twitter have given to many people the voice they once never had.
But how much responsibility do you take while using these social media sites. Do you use Facebook and Twitter for the right reason?
Studies suggest that people with too much technology behave poorly. Sometimes a darker side of them emerges that they are unaware of or have no control over.
Don’t get me wrong Social media sites like Twitter and Facebook have been used to great effect for social purposes. Things like organising marches against corrupt governments. Unveiling corrupt officials. Finding long lost loved ones. Just communicating with friends and family over vast distances.
These are all great uses, but then there is the dark side. Spreading of rumours, and perpetrating lies and deceit.
Remember the way you behave reflects on yourself and your family whether it be on Twitter, your cell, or in a drunken mess in a dark alley. You can’t take back what you said.
Please tweet responsibly and based only on confirmed facts. Not only to avoid rumours but also to avoid confusion.
My mother, and I’m sure your mother told you: “If you have nothing good to say, then say nothing”.
This applies to social media as well.
So then what are your tweets like. How do you behave on Facebook? Have you seen anyone act irresponsibly on social media sites?
