We are living in the 21’s century, which means we are surrounded by technology everywhere;
technology makes life easier, not only easier but faster; it speed things up. to the extent that sometimes you can’t catch your breath.
What is the easiest and fastest to get an information/update ?! Surf the internet.
When it comes to communication; we cannot ignore social network’s role, keeping in touch with friends/family..etc. and one main role is that it kills time; when you are bored having nothing to do; nothing is better in killing time than logging in to any social network. that’s a bonus but it’s not when it’s about to kill your real life.
Using social networks have turned our life into an E-life , instead of calling a friend or a family member you just leave comment on their Facebook/Twitter, Does that count as communicating ?!
Instead of spending time with your family or hanging out with friends , or attending any symposium. We are just turning our backs to real life and convince ourselves with Fake world. we are missing great opportunities and we are not even realizing this because we are too busy Socializing online.
As for me; Am a person who is using social network 24/7, am getting used to posting daily updates; I reached a point where am updating my twitter every single minute, yes am enjoying my time, having fun,discussing various topics& having the chance of meeting new people; creating new friendships.
I love how you can discuss whatever you want and you’ll meet people out there sharing the same thoughts; it will allow you to be introduced in a whole different world than the one you are living in.
– How much time do you spend online ?!
– A lot ?
– then how about your real life ?
– Do you hangout with friends?/ -Do you pay your relatives a visit every now and then ?
– When was the last time you got in touch with an old friend by telephone ?
Your answer to these questions will explain a lot…
Do you think if people continued on this rate there will be calls/visits anymore ?
Why don’t you just ask elders how happy they were back in time, how beautiful it was to have a picnic, to travel , to sth crazy..
Why don’t we control our time and create a space that we can use it in volunteering? just an hour or two will make a difference in others life and in yours too.
We opened a discussion days ago,a friend was mentioning how important is the applications in her life: Facebook , twitter , whats app , bbm service !!!! she said exactly : “i almost forgot so many voices of people in my life, i rarely get in touch by any means but chatting online. ” she was glad to say so, as long as it’s easier and faster so why bother doing it differently ?.
When i told her about my challenge i was getting a reaction of ” are you crazy? “; you won’t be able to live like that for more than 24 hours.
I’m happy to get involved in this challenge, and let it grab change into my life.
The challenge : stop using Social network (Facebook/Twitter) for 30 days.
ACTION : accounts deactivated.
Target : take the effect of social network out of my mind and find useful replacements; writing / reading ..etc.
I am sure that i will find things worth doing than just refreshing Facebook or twitter every second.
it will be a tough challenge, but it will make a difference in my life ,Count down is set already.
wait more updates 😉
