I generally like Facebook. It is a way to connect with friends and my readers. Facebook itself is a great social tool. It only becomes a problem when Facebook users start to do creepy s**t. Like, instant messaging someone whom you have never had a conversation with, never met, know nothing about and the first thing that comes out of his mouth is him asking someone for their full name and address etc.. When the person they are questioning becomes offended at their aggressiveness/stalker behavior, their response is “Sorry. I just really want to get to know you.”
Here is where the problem lies. Facebook and other social networks allows individuals who lack social skills to be the boldest them they can be. Chances are this person would never walk up to a stranger on the street and ask them that same line of questioning. However, via the power of the internet, they somehow feel empowered and bolder than ever before! It is a load of brilliance and scariness all rolled up into one fat weird ball.
On one hand, I can’t fault someone who approaches someone boldly on Facebook. After all, you are in essence putting yourself out for the cyber world to see. This includes all of the pedophiles, rapists, stalkers, and general weirdoes etc.. They ALL see you! With this amount of openness you run the risk of becoming subjected to one of these individuals interacting with you. Why? Because it is Facebook and they can be as obnoxious as they want to be online….. To Read The Rest Go To YeahSheSaidIt
