Have you ever sat down to think of the amount of time you spend every day on the web? It may shock you.
The web seems to have taken the world captive. But what is intriguing is we don’t seem to be aware of it.
We are prisoners without a crime of the web. This, I call self-imprisonment. We seem to be helpless.
But what is it that we do when we get on the web? How useful are the things that we do?
Most of the times, people are on social media. How useful is the time spent on social media? What impact is it having on us? And on the world?
I am not against spending a lot of time on social media but I am against spending it wastefully. I am thinking of chatting aimlessly endlessly.
If judiciously exploited, social media can bring immense benefits to us. Unwisely exploited, it Can become destructive.
You have to know what you want when you go on social media. Get it, and off you go; to wait for the next time you need it.
It is a good thing to share and enjoy good moments with friends acquaintances on your favourite sites; but you can do that alongside pursuing some other useful goal.
The long and short of it is:
Do not be a slave to social media;
Do not be a captive or prisoner
of social media;
Do not be a toy of social media.
Use social media wisely;
Use social media positively;
Use social media in a way that you will reap enormously.
