Smart phones and dumb people?
Posted June 22, 2014on:
I will let the video tell its story. It is a good one, but it is one-sided. How so? Within the first minute, it makes judgement that social media is not really social.
“Social” media is not the misnomer. Having hundreds or even thousand of “friends” on Facebook is. Those friends are not the traditionally defined ones. No one has that many no matter how popular you are. Even celebrities can probably count on their hands and feet how many real friends they have.
The larger issue is whether you let your technological servant become your master.
Let us not lay blame on the wrong thing. It is not the smart phone that is at fault. It is the dumb people who judge before listening, who assume before experiencing, or who do not know how to look up every now and then.
