An advice : Don't log on to your social media on your shitty days.

When I studied at UiTM, the closest thing I came to learning about media social is that it is a multimedia platform. Never did I actually realize that we will all be spending up to 10 hours on it. If in 1997 some of us would spend from RM5 to RM30 a day at the CC to chat on MIRC or sending e-cards, nowadays we spend the same hours on many platforms. These days there's email, Facebook, Instagram and blogs. For some there are myspace, twitter and google plus. I am also on dayre, and I hope you won’t find me there any time soon.

With a new kind of platform to socialize on, new kinds of ethics and self censorship is needed. Add this to the always changing terms and condition of Facebook, wallah you always have to read the terms and conditions of your beloved social media platform.

Anyway, on Facebook some people kept sharing their dos and don'ts on media social. One particular married friend posted this today.



I regularly read her post because they show up in my timeline and I noticed that she has been posting regular stuff like when she’s baking cakes or going for work trips. From the statuses I guessed that she must be facing some unhappy things, I don't want to state my guesses but as I am forever going to be a wannabe spy, I have some guesses there.

Actually I felt like she pointed the second item on me. I keep posting stuff on work, on my ideologies and on my pregnancy (no 2). It isn't like I post everyday, just my thoughts so that friends who are in the same boat will share their thoughts too. Since I have been on social media for about 7 years now there are a lot of things which I hope people don't post on their timeline. 

I had this Facebook whom I never actually met, but I added as a friend because I bought some item from her. So she is a person who earns much more than me and can buy so many pricey items and she shows them all on Facebook. At first it feels annoying but as she is always on my timeline I decided that for the sake of sanity, I shall hide all her feeds from now on.

There is always a choice on social media. Since I can't go hermit like and deactivate my social media, I can hide all those annoying feeds and go visit them when I feel curious.

I feel that our attitude about social media is mostly like this.

"My appreciation of your status depends on my mood of the day. If I am in a sad state, then I hate all your happy statuses, but if I am overly happy then not even a tsunami can flatten me."

This reminds me when friends who works as 
radio deejays tell me about callers who call them to say that they are furious because the deejays played some particular sad songs "Are you trying to tease me? I am having a bad period and you deliberately chose to play that song today to abuse my emotions right"

ps: sucks, my english is bad. I need to read the thesaurus on Friday.
