Social Networks

   Muliply, Friendster, Facebook, Yahoo Chat, Skype...is something not for the faint of hearts. It may broaden ones sphere of influence, increased the number of acquaintances, learn from experiences of another, get in touch with former classmates and more so with other friends and relatives. But the arguments and misunderstandings that sometimes come up can intensely be distressing.
   A young lady I know once said "You don't have to take things seriously. Else...". That was when I pointed out an inappropriate photo tagged to her by a male office mate of hers. (Nothing for the Censors Board to rate on or anything of the sort though). She's so spot on by what she said. Still the photo is suggestive to say the least. I can only imagine how it would be with next door neighbors who are also in the same social networking site. It's not going to be much of a problem with people hundreds of miles away apart. More if one is on another continent. Or a planet?
    Ah yes. I think I am on another planet. It's like a fiction story of a child on a planet that comes to mind. I only remember taking it up in school. And that was ages ago. Anyhow I would like to imagine being on a planet, on a world of my own. And the only line of communication with others on another world is Yahoo or Facebook.

  1. As for me, I am on an island, all by myself, drowning in my own thoughts, my fears (specially in regard to my illness), my sentiments, and the only line of communication is through the invention called Facebook.

  2. Thank you for the response.

    "The Little Prince" was the title of the book.
