Either we like it or not we’re obsessed with social media. That’s a fact! Well, at least for the most of us!
I’m not even sure to know all social network, so I can say I still have some autonomy.
Personally, I’m often on Facebook, I’ve always had Twitter but I use it only from time to time. Lately I signed up on Instagram as I think I like the concept.
As far as I know the main reasons why they’re used are: to easily keep in touch with people, to get some gossip, to share ideas and information on the preferred topics and to get the latest news in one click.
Pros and cons are in every single thing but with the social media everything it’s kind of amplified.
If you do something silly, everybody will know; if someone needs help, in that way the problem will be addressed faster.
However, just because of that, mean comments or action will spread as fast as the good deeds. No, maybe faster than the rest.
It’s incredible to see such a behavior. It’s like people love to see other people suffering, love to insult them. I know for sure that there are a few of them loving to trigger arguments.
Maybe it’s not even loving to do something, maybe they’re just annoyed with life, maybe they’re going through a crappy period, maybe they’re sad and desperate and to them it’s unbearable to see another person happy or receiving love and compliments. Even worse, sometimes they love to see someone going through a tougher period in order to feel better.
Do you know what? You suck and you’re horrible people!
I understand, we’re all human and, as such, we make mistakes, but this is what they are, mistakes, that’s it!
Have you done a silly thing? Fine, understand it, apologize and don’t do it again.
If you do it twice, fine, three times, less fine but still OK. After that, it becomes a habit, a bad habit loads of people seem to enjoy.
This consideration was triggered by the comments I’ve seen on Facebook on some profiles.
Of course, it’s some kind of behavior that would happen in real life too.
However, people should understand that even if someone decided to make his or her life public, this doesn’t give them the right to destroy them with their opinion. Public profile isn’t an invite to be rude or impolite.
Immediately connected to what I’ve just stated, I have to add I respect a lot public people like Supernatural cast members, or even Stephen Amell – these are the one I follow – who decided to go public but they managed to create such nice and healthy environment behind them, that I want just to prize them.
The detail that maybe annoys me the most is that Italians seem to be the most enraged comment writers. Of course, this data is related to my own field of experience.
Anyhow it’s a pity.
What triggered this train of thoughts is linked to some comment I’ve seen on MasterChef and X factor’ s Facebook pages, but it could be extended to everything.
It’s OK to have your personal opinion, your beliefs, your fear, your bias, even your prejudice, I mean it.
However, for no reason whatsoever you’re entitle to force your opinion on other people, criticize who’s in front of you, offend someone you might not even know. Basically, for no reason at all it’s OK behave like a real asshole!
And this is the end of my rant!
Ok, it wanted to be less of a rant, I really wanted to express my opinion, but I feel very passionate about it.
Well, my dear readers, leave it or take it!
Have a well-deserved Sunday!
