Will the world know that I like to eat?

Technology helps us leave a trail of information no matter where we go. However knowing that companies or government starts following theses trails and using the information from the trails for their own purpose scares us. Simply because we feel that it is an invasion of privacy. The things we post or share is something like a shout out to the world. We do it because it is an activity that has become a social trend. Sometimes we don’t even realize we did it because it slowly becomes a habit and society is supporting these actions. Nowadays anyone can see what you are doing and what you like. We are all under “SURVEILLANCE” whether if its form friends and family or governments and companies. We should start asking ourselves Is what im doing being monitored? Should I post my location? Should I instagram my favorite ice cream? The lesson here is think before you post because once its out there, it stays there!

I only got 1,000 likes?!?!? Something is wrong here

More and more people are using social media platforms to become micro-celebrities. The fact that everyone is doing it reinforces on this being an acceptable behavior. Not only that but we contribute as the audience because we to like and follow people who we believe are role models or peak our interest. When a person does not do these action we feel that somethings not right with them. Which brings an important question. Has social media, a tool that was suppose to help us meet and stay connected with people drive us away from what is really there? We are so fixated to what is on the screen that we sometimes forget to look what is actually around us. We take pictures of beautiful¬†sceneries and post it on instagram with the caption “OMG loving the view” #amazing #colours #sogladtobealive but do we actually enjoy the scenery more or the likes coming in from the post.

Thanks for listening!
