Your kids will stalk the shit out of you. Online. Yep. I’m not here to censor you or limit you in anyway, I’m just here to let you in on a little prediction… just something I’m prettttt-tty sure will happen in the future.
Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – all so very sporadic and fleeing. Quickly captured moments of bliss or boredom… *BLEEEERTT* except, the moment might be fleeing, but the print is forever D:
And what better tool to start with than Facebook? A website designed for you to capture the now because it is always a future past. And with the Timeline layout, it is only the more inviting to go fill in the blanks between your birth and 2000-whenever you got Facebook. But it’s okay if you don’t… I’m sure there’s enough from 2010+/- and onwards, to have your kids laughing at the way you used Facebook, back in the day.
I think it’s a funny perspective to look at things we post online. I especially notice the posts where we nag and are demotivated to do the vital, responsible, important things in life, like going to work. Especially if it becomes a series of the same demotivated theme…or a series of any one dimensional theme, actually… you know your kids will stalk that shit one day?
I’m not saying be happy 24/7 – I’m saying something more in the lines of, awareness of the online being real, being a depiction of who you are, might just make what you share fuller.
I think it’s a funny perspective to look at things we post online. Especially with the people I know in real time, it is already peculiar to express myself here, to them. Anything you find with me online, anywhere, is me. It’s reality. It’s an opinion in a situation, a thought in development, a well-thought expression, a bad angle, a good angle, younger me, wiser me, drunker me.
When was the last time you expressed yourself fake/unreal online? (I’m assuming the fewest do this)
Now: Would you say the online and digital is unreal? Does the term URL(UnReal Life) describe your behavior through a keyboard?
^Feel free to answer… although, it’s meant as a rhetorical question to be elaborated on later.
