Logic is Variable

an argument starts here


My Abode

I don’t live in hell of this world.
Then where you live?
In my thoughts.

Approach to acceptance

No doubt you love the girl but she doesn’t listen to anyone. How did you succeed in winning her over?
I asked her to hate me, treat me real bad instead.
Because she has destroyed me; made me worthless. All the time I keep thinking of  dreaming about her. I want to get rid of this miserable condition I am in. I have so much to do in life. May be I will get back to normal if she behaves badly with me.
Did she do accept your request?
No. She accepted me instead.

Net result

No one comes to my rescue in sadness, hopelessness. Assurance by religion, society, family and friends, strength of the wealth, countless mediums of attractions all fail.
What happens to you then?
Sadness, hopelessness pass by thinking this person is totally powerless.

What you do at facebook?

Facebook is one of the busiest destinations online. With over 500 million active users and millions of them updating their status millions of times per day has made it the most ubiquitous way to interact and reconnect online. One wonders what users do at Facebook?

Facebook has grown fast over time. I started using then not very popular social site when it was young, meant only for students who had .edu email address. Later it was opened to general Internet users and now one finds everyone (ok, almost everyone on facebook) including old people, businessmen, celebrities, writers, artists, political activist, governments, organizations, NGOs and a whole lot more promoting and pursuing their concerns.

It is hard to categorize who people use it? Adam N. Joinson (University of Bath) who studies Facebook users says, “The main use of Facebook is the recreation of social connections between people who had, or still have, a connection in their everyday lives. So, people mainly used Facebook to reconnect with people they went to school with, worked with, or friends they lost touch with. But, the key question is 'what do people do once they have created this network?' The results of the research suggest that this can be divided into four main activities – they can use applications within the site to interact with their network, they can browse their friends' friends and learn more about them, they can join groups and express their identity via shared social experiences, or they can use the site to inform others of their news, and keep up to date with others' actions.”

Adam N. Joinson’s work urged me to observe what users in this part of the world are doing. My personal scouting and spending some time on Facebook reveals two groups: some local members are using facebook purposefully promoting what they like (products, services, ideas). Other group uses facebook simply to have their presence, tagging other simply or replicating what catches their fancy. And ironical, I know of children who interact with their parents through facebook (pun intended).

Interestingly, I know facebook users who have created online profiles, displaying whatever biographical information they want, locations, workplaces, photos, hobbies, interests and some who simply don’t display any of the information through which someone can recognize them to become a friend. I know a few who update their status and sit by connected computers to wait for who comes and likes what they have done.

How you use facebook? Care to share here.
