Something to share?
Some people think they are connected because they share content on the internet.
The idea of connection based on the fact that we can see what you are having for breakfast don’t seem to realize that no one actually read your posts.
Before the internet people didn’t care about each other neither but at least they din’t indulge the illusion like they do today.
People think that having 48 followers’ means that 48 human beings read everything they say.
Well, I have news.
Following a person on Twitter is basically the version of clicking Like on Facebook.
The people who follow you don’t read you, they like you.
But the illusion that Twitter creates is powerful.
Even knowing that nobody actually read what you post, you keep the hope alive that tweeting something means interacting with your followers.
Which Harry Potter character are you?
Which superhero are you?
How stupid are you?
You name the faggotly question and there is an online quiz to find the answer.
Do you know who is interested in those test results?
It is near inexplicably how everyone on the internet believes that all the other people want to see their quiz results.
I cannot imagine even one good reason for a lucid creature to be interested in something like that.
Another thing everyone mistakenly thinks the world will be interested in is chat captures.
You can’t scroll more than 2 pages at any funny page without seeing a chat image.
People think their own chats are funny enough to be captured and sent to a page so they can become public entertainment.
Even assuming that those chats may be funny among your friends, all the fun ends the very same minute you share it with people who don’t know you or any of your friends.
What on Earth make you suppose that any of us would find funny your internal jokes?
It’s amazing how much fun you guys have together but please, don’t share it with us.

Social networking tips
According to a worldwide study 3 out of 4 couples married in the last decade met on the internet.
If you also want to find interesting people please read carefully this tips.
– Please choose an interesting and realistic profile picture.
The picture reflects the features you want to be shown about your personality, so be very mindful in the selection.
Avoid glasses, boobs and make up.
Of course do not add another person. Remember, is a profile picture of you, not a soccer team poster.
If the picture portrait you doing something or in a specific place, make sure that is something usual.
For you to show how great the Everest climb was you will want to create an album, not a profile picture.
– Do not include all your personal information in your profile and make it visible to only your friends, never public.
Even to your friends, hide information, hide as much information as you can without appearing arrogant.
– Stay away of any statement.
Avoid religious, sportive or political references as much as possible.
If other people post in your wall do not like the post or comment, leave it to the public.
– Think ten times before posting something and a thousand before commenting.
You will not have a second chance to re post that so count until ten and when in doubt, throw it out.
Pictures are the image you project to the world about you.
Most people don’t read so they only take information from your pictures.
– Be responsive, educated and quiet.
Reply to every single message and invitation you receive, even if you don’t know who the person is.
– Ask for advice about your profile.
Most of the time your friends and family are the best on correcting you from what is wrong.
Use that objectivity power they have and ask them what they think you should modify in your profile.
Also look yourself at your profile from another person device so you can see how it looks to other people or use the ‘View as’ feature.
– Be specific in the information.
You should not include too much personal information but if you decide to add some do not overpopulate that area.
Let’s say you want to add some music you like, ok but just a few.
Trust me, by telling the world that you like music you are not doing any favor to yourself, pretty much the contrary.
– If there is something you really can’t stand it is better to subtle let that know to viewers.
It can be anything, maybe you don’t tolerate blond people or black people ok, with just one little sarcastic comment is more than enough to maintain blondes and darkies away from you.
– Show humor in your profile.
Without being goofy you need to make sure everyone understand you don’t take yourself or your internet profile seriously.
– Allow yourself to make mistakes.
There need to be something in your profile that shows uncaring.
Even if you’ve been thinking during a month about it, it needs to reflect careless.
If you are perfect like me you probably wouldn’t find any mistakes so take advantage of the social network itself to do that for you.
Just by not posting a background picture or by not selecting the correct city you live in, people will think you don’t know how to do it or you don’t care about it.

Internet tears people apart
The Internet has given us access to remote people and news from all around the globe.
However, the Internet is also opposing neighbor against neighbor in new and innovative ways that only technology could have made possible.
You only talk to people you agree with
The better way you can improve as a person is by making mistakes and receiving corrections from other people.
Receive bad feedback from others is not nice but is the only way we can learn how to be better.
If you surround with ‘yes men’ people you will get disconnected from reality and excluded yourself from creating new social connections.
So far the internet is building that bubble of ‘yes men’ people around you and is not a conspiracy theory, is just how computer algorithms works.
Facebook for example, you think it gave you all of your friend’s updates in order?
Of course not, by default it filters the updates according to your previous preferences.
And that’s exactly why wrong information can circulate in a bubble where everybody agrees with it; because the ones who know the truth have been deliberately filtered out.
Last year I saw on Reddit the following headline ‘Russia is massing troops on Iran’s northern border ready to start a war if US attacks Iran’.
The source was BusinessInsider.com, a very respectable page which was pulling the article from World Net Daily where the story cites unnamed sources.
So let’s follow the path. Front page of a huge news portal -> popular website -> crazy site -> imagination of a random guy.
And by the way, Russia doesn’t border Iran.
We didn’t even pay attention to it because what we spend all of our time doing is browsing, fast browsing information without stop and dig into the details.
As online forums become more populated, for example, customers who are more positive and less involved tend to stick to the sidelines, while customers who are more involved and more critical take their place.
Online feedback tends to be either from people who are being negative or from people who are positive and see that other people are trashing the thing they’re positive about.
Now they have to speak up, just to try to negate the negativity.
One way or the other, the loudest, most negative people dictate the discussion.
You’ve probably also seen this phenomenon in every single political discussion that has ever taken place online.
Internet users versus everyone else
I wrote this complete article talking about different opinions you find on the internet, ignoring the fact that the Internet is not the world.
The digital gap is the breach between internet users and non-internet users.
You may think of the consequences of this as just simply oddity in social gatherings but in global terms, it’s a massive problem.
The differences between an internet user life and a non-internet user life are huge and get bigger every single day.
Internet use rewires our brains.
So if the internet is presenting us with the stories and opinions we care about, and internet is only available to the richest third of us, then no matter how open-minded you are, the pure fact that you’re reading this, means you’re already living in a bubble.

Yuya vs. Shane Dawson
With 80 million videos and 3 billion video views, YouTube currently eats up more bandwidth than the entire internet in 2002 but watching some of the trending YouTube channel videos is like reading the text messages between a 16 year old girl and Chewbacca.
A clear example is Shane Dawson; nobody else offers a more patent evidence that the average US citizen cannot handle the responsibility of an open video channel.
I used to watch Shane’s first videos myself and after a couple of weeks he started to repeat his jokes and every other video was about him thanking us for watching his videos.
In a matter of months he became the epitome of annoying.
Using the same platform we have an example of pureness and commitment with good job: Mariand Castrejon best known as Yuya.
She is a sophisticated and intelligent woman whose videos are of paramount importance.
Her soft and warm voice is another remarkable feature that put the last touches on the excellence of her YouTube channel.
She shares beauty tips and recommendations to help people achieve physical attractiveness and we all know that being beautiful is the first priority of life.
Attractive people are more socially successful, more financially successful and clearly happier than unattractive people.
And women are particularly drawn to beauty and are in their element when surrounded with this kind of training videos like Yuya’s.
Being beautiful and pretty is what makes us healthier and happier than ugly people.
External beauty makes us better people and for a woman to be a good person it’s necessary to feel and look like a princess.
For male individuals being intelligent or good people can be useful too but for women the only thing that matters is being skinny and pretty.
Yuya gives every woman the chance to learn how to achieve ideal beauty by following her YouTube tutorials.
On the other hand Shane Dawson doesn’t give us anything useful, he is really annoying and his jokes are not even funny.
Anyone who films himself raging about trivial things or documenting their personal lives and inexplicably gets a ridiculous number of subscribers must be automatically banned by YouTube.
Google, who now owns YouTube, does a great job filtering the spam content on his other platforms but they are not doing it with YouTube and that should soon change.
Shane is a clear product of the reality show television culture in which people will do anything for fame, even if it brings humiliation and nonsense.
Small minded people always sought fame so it is no surprise he is doing it.
Genesis Chapter 4 tells us that the first motivation for building the Tower of Babel was that the builders could make a celebrated name for themselves so maybe with land being so expensive these days, YouTube is seen as the modern way to satisfy the same primitive impulse.
