For last few years we have been experiencing a debate on whether there is life after Wikileaks? Can we currently toss question in the bag? Is there life after Social Networks? Does Social Networks pose comparable crisis and risks? What is going to occur when your confidential info is exposed?
Social networking is considered an exclusive virtual room for like-minded individuals to share data. Is it actually an exclusive area? How it could be exclusive when all the data is in the hands of a couple of individuals that own as well as operate Facebook, Google +, LinkedIn and Twitter? Can the so called cost-free and democratic web space come to be a rampant minefield like the Wikileaks? After all, it is all about the info, your info.
Efforts to answer these inquiries frequently develop into a comparison of different innovations and services accessible on the internet and end up with a quite difficult combative protection of Social Networks by their creators and customers. When it pertains to securing details all net solutions have blemishes, we think.
Technologies are imperfect, so are the Social Networks, however they are useful. Over FIVE HUNDRED Million individuals that use Facebook surely can’t be wrong. Or does it imply that such an enormous number of clients of Facebook are in some way healing the world with warm gossip, sexy pictures, stale ideas and petty chats concerning their regular lives.
Today the numbers of networking devices linked to the cloud amount to the complete universal population. By 2015 the number of these gadgets will increase. As of now, every minute 277,000 people log in to Facebook which amounts to 6 million Facebook views, 320 Twitter and more than 100 Linkedin accounts are generated every minute. On You-Tube 30 hrs of video is uploaded every minute. Also in a single minute 1.3 million individuals will be checking out these videos worldwide. Every minute more than 2 million queries are made on the Google and with their new Google + the scope of Social Networks will grow even more. In Thailand approximately 28 percent of individuals have Facebook accounts.
With all this evidence, it appears that we are standing on the front wave of ubiquitous connectivity. And the more that we are linked, the more we want to discover new opportunities to engage with one another and share ideas as well as info in methods that were not possible simply a few years back. In this strongly linked, always switched-on world, Social Networks makes much more sense than ever before. They provides anyone who needs to learn a new skill, get ready for a new job, or pursue a new career, get a certificate, or earn a degree without relocating or leaving their present employment. As Social Networks expands the reach of the campus and corporate learning facilities, it provides more ways for them to broaden.
To some cynics, social networks are looking more and more like cyber centers where lonely people collect to bond and make themselves feel better. Millions of individuals devote hrs and days surfing via the toxic wasteland of their memories and bare them all for the entire globe. Millions of individuals invest hours checking out videos and films.
What will occur when the Social Networks are all depleted? Exactly what will take place to cyber space when it is all filled up with trash? Just like Earth which is currently filled with polluted and foul air and spoiled water, Internet is additionally being polluted with the electronic fumes of abandoned chit-chat and terabytes of recycled and stinking data. What takes place now that the Internet and Social Networks have fused in to a single predatory entity with a slim veil of an exclusive communication room with large intention of optimizing revenues for its designers? Can something that has originated from being a complimentary source like Internet truly be complimentary? Where are we heading with the rampant growth of the Internet as well as mushrooming of new Social Networks? These are the concerns we should be inquiring.
What we require today, for the sake of the survival of human species, a long term vision regarding the part of modern technologies in our lives. Every technology has its negative side. As we know well that the benefit of a car has resulted in the contaminants of air all over the world. Large scale industries have created useful products for our consumption by polluting both air as well as water. All the three points necessary for our survival – the air, water and nutrients are under threat.
Food and water has actually actually become a product. The successor is the air we breathe. Cities like Tokyo currently have Oxygen bars in the same building as an Internet cafe where people go and breathe some fresh air, for a fee. Internet is additionally becoming like a gigantic parlor hosting Social Networks, gambling as well as porno sites.
And do not fail to remember that there are some good things in the cloud. All the email, weblogs as well as other helpful services are making our lives greater. Although the Internet provides enormous potential for socializing in a web area it even maintains the masses suspended in front of a flat plasma screen alone. They may not touch or feel anything. In reality, interacting socially without physical or actual contact is similar to a floating cloud. In that sense, these networks have actually shadowed the individual spirit as well as thoughts. It exists but just in the slim flat glimmering screen of a computer, a notebook or a mobile. But those that utilize the Social Networks believe that something is better than nothing. Some individuals even think that the online world can change into a real encounter. Well, everything is feasible in a void or a bubble?
All we need to do is to assess its cause and effects, its real value in improving the top quality of our lives. In actual phrases, modern technologies have brought us where we are today as an individual civilization. We should inquire this question “with everything that we may have today minus clean water, clean air and a nutritious meal are worth having?” That is the question.
Momentarily, ignore clean details. There is no doubt that Internet has actually connected the globe in remarkable methods yet connectivity alone is insufficient to improve the high quality of life. Life is all about clean water, clean air and a healthy meal. And following these three things, perhaps a restful night’s sleep. Surfing social networks on glaring plasma monitors may not match the magic of a sky brightened with twinkling stars. There is life beyond the cloud; there is life without Social Networks.
