There are many reasons that I have cut back my time on Facebook. One of the reasons is that it just drives me crazy to see what the young people of the world are putting on there for the whole world to see. And it isn’t just the younger generation, but the majority of it is and no matter what I try to tell them about what could happen if certain people see this stuff, they just don’t get it and continue to post crap that they will eventually pay the price for.
The Lat Thing I Remember Dude!
The majority of these people are relatives of mine of some sort, so I do have a vested interest in what they are doing. Many are dealing with the courts and various legal organizations – many are trying to keep or get their young children back from the courts or other relatives. So when I see them post things such as this Wall Poster that I cut and pasted on here today (and this is pretty mild in comparison to some of the stuff that they put there) I try and encourage them to stop and think before hitting the Submit key.
My mother and father drilled into our heads way long ago when the first computers come out and the Internet started to become more and more important and vital to our daily lives something that I have repeated over and over to people in order to make my point. It is most unfortunate that I seem to be talking to deaf ears and have even pissed a few of them off and they have “unfriended” me, what a shame.
My parents used to say “Don’t put anything on the Internet (and that includes all of today’s technologies that we have access to most days and evenings) that you wouldn’t take the time to write in LARGE letters on a HUGE Billboard that stands right in your front yard! I just can’t think of a better way to get the point across. My parents were also fond of saying “It’s too bad that youth is wasted on the young!”
