Social Media has taken over our communication abilities, it seems it is easier to get on social media & Google to find out what is going on than check your local newspaper, the local news station, or world news.
I can remember growing up and the only news we received was when we got home from school our parents would discuss the important things we needed to know, we were too busy with school, taking care of our 4-H projects, helping parents with yard work or gardening, playing with friends & neighbors.
Our only link to news and activities was our weekly newspaper, word of mouth, friends & parents.
Today we have a 24/7 connection to EVERYTHING, good and bad. Temptation is everywhere. We find ourselves tempted to go check out a shopping site even though we are on a tight budget, sign up for coupons, sign up for newsletters, and fill our email inbox with JUNK and SPAM, LIKE a post on Facebook, SHARE it, and the movement goes on and on.
Did you know that ALL OF YOUR ACTIVITIES are being tracked? That means every time you check your bank account, check your email, open photos, etc… Facebook and other social media track your activities. This is why you are receiving SPAM, your accounts get hacked, because they have all your information.
Think about this for a moment, everything is turning to ONLINE ONLY.
Shopping online on websites, Amazon is much safer than going shopping at stores, you don’t have to worry about being robbed, kidnapped, etc… right?
Our banks have closed their lobby’s only have drive-thru or ATM deposits or Mobile deposits now.
We the American People must take precautions to sustain our personal interests and safety for not only ourselves but our grand blessings.
When you are scrolling thru your Facebook, you LIKE a post, then you start seeing posts similar to what you like, and you realize how overwhelming scrolling thru Facebook can be so you remove yourself and interest, or you continue to like and be overwhelmed.
When Facebook started, businesses started finding ways to promote their business, products, and services and we found a great way to catch up with old friends and schoolmates, never realizing how much we allow ourselves to be controlled by the technology.
The technologies were created to do just that! I can remember growing up and my parents had seen the transition of technologies they said “The world is going to be run by robots” never realizing how true of a statement it was, however, WE ARE THE ROBOTS.
With the new AI and other technologies being introduced, we will be forced to all be connected to the internet to survive until our power grid goes out and we will have to relearn how to be human.
