Hi guys! It's Greytopher once again with a new blog series!
Once again, I'd like to say hello once again! I've been gone for 27 days, and through these days I've been at a summer camp in Yosemite. Through this camp, it has been the most eventful summer of my life, and I'm so glad I went there and experienced it. I'm glad you guys have been patient enough to wait for another blog, and now, here it is.
PMC Think: What it's about...
PMC Think is a new blog series I've though of over the past month based off of a community opinionated idea. In PMC Think, we'll talk about different topics every week, and how it'll affect us as a community/world.
I want you guys to voice your opinion about each topic. Please constrain yourself from one liners like "I agree". Try to explain your reason on why you agree. You guys have no idea how much I love to read your comments, and I'll try to reply to all of them ASAP.
Topic at hand: Social Networking
So, today, marking our 1st ever PMC Think session, I would like to talk about Social Networking, and how it has both helped mankind yet slowed it down in different ways.
For those who don't know what Social Networking is:
Definition: The use of a dedicated Web site to communicate informally with other members of the site, by posting messages, photographs, etc.
Basically, it means by using sites like this (PMC), facebook, MySpace, ect.
What I want to see in this chat is you voiceing your opinion on this. I want to see questions answered by it, and my main questions to you guys are:
- "is it good for people? Is is bad? Explain in detail."
- "What do you use social networking sites for?"
- "Do you use your time productively on these sites?"
- "Did you join this site because it looked fun, or because 'everyone else was doing it'?"
- "Why do you use social networking sites?"
When it comes to Social Networking, I'm basically on it everyday. Since PMC is considered a social networking site, I'm connecting with friends and posting information to share with others. However, this has taken up my personal time that I adore and I'm suppost to use for more important issues like work and homework. Sites like these distract me from actual work at hand, except for now since this is now my "work". Other then that, I find PMC somewhat distracting from life but I like it in a sense that it makes me feel wanted since people like my writing.
On the other hand, facebook is what really ticks me off. Over the past couple of years since I've had my facebook, I've been gradually going on it less and less to a point where I just never think about it. There was a time in my life where I was addicted, and I was on it all the time to the point where it controlled my life. "You're dating that girl? I didn't know it since it didn't say on facebook. FACEBOOK OFFICIAL, BRO". I personally don't use it for reasons like that. Being "facebook official" really makes me mad, mad infact because it does happen. Happens all the time at my school, and it irks me to the point of no return.
Another thing that annoys me of things like that is specifically the facebook games. I don't know about you guys, but I bet every once in a while you'd love to play farmville or mafia wars or another game like that. I for one was addicted to Mafia Wars in the 7th grade, I was the only kid in my class that played, but one thing I remember distinctly was my brother to tell me to stop sending him Mafia Wars requests because it was overwhelming his email account. I abruptly stopped after that, realizing how much anger I brought upon myself from other students.
I get this a lot now too, so far I have way too many Farmville requests to count, it's sad. I find it annoying and irritating since it doesn't put my time to good use, as far as I can see.
Now, the last thing I want to touch up on is, that I wanted to use facebook as a tool to help me in the future. I never did so, and the so called "friends" I made on that website didn't help me with that either. I think of facebook as just another tool, to help people in finding friends, finding answers. It's branched off in so many ways that you can use it in so many ways, it's hard to count. Depending on how you use it, what do you use it for?
That's it for now, if you think this is a good blog idea for a series, please leave a lovely comment on what I can improve to make it better. A new one every week, if all goes well!
