These days, when i watch advertisements that encourage young people to share their daily routines on social networking sites it gives me a bad feeling.
These business houses should be more responsible, there are so many incidents of online bullying resulting in suicide these days i dont believe that they have missed all of them, and most of these bullies hurt their victims by taunting their private insecurities, sore points.
We, who are quite mature, we too often end up sharing more than we should in our blogs, or sometimes in our friend circle too, i will clearly admit that during my emotionally toxic stage of life i have picked up a ghoul, a ghoul who orchestrated quite a lot of problems in my life thereafter by squeezing out informations from me, by replacing all my cyber friends by himself, using the advantage that i was avoiding people in flesh and blood and counting too much on people i will never meet, living under the illusion that it will keep me safe from those predators i have met, those who befriended me and abused it so badly that it made me hate human beings for years (am not still totally over it). I never thought a simple harsh truth- you may not know your cyber friend, you may think he is a divorcee, american who lives in chicago, a couple of years older than you, but he can know who you are, can be an Indian old man with sons almsot as old as you and a very happy, healthy wife, living in Kolkata and monitoring your movements, because he runs is dirty scams in your home with the help of some disgusting human beings who live there! that was an eye opener, and after he brazenly shared his photograph (only after i met him face to face) i realized that one should not open oneself too much to cyber friends or in internet. it can be really dangerous.
So next time you think about baring yourself in your facebook account or blog PLEASE DONT DO IT!
