How to use social websites cleverly?

There is no denying that social websites’ usage is at its peak. According to Pew Research Centre, 74% of internet users use social networking sites. 71% of online adults use Facebook, 23% Twitter, 26% Instagram, 28% LinkedIn. It is used for a variety of purposes such as social networking, uploading statuses, blogging, uploading photos and videos, promotion of businesses, establishing of online businesses, information seeking, entertainment, etc. We spend most of our time of the day on these websites. So it is very important to use them intelligently. How do you do that? Well, the following are some of the strategies that you could adopt on using social websites.

1. Don’t spend too much time on them.

It is important not to give too much of your time unless you really have to, for e.g for the promotion of your business or setting one, for networking which is benefiting you in an important way, or for an emergency purpose that you feel you can’t be away from it too long. Your time is precious, you don’t want to waste it scrolling through unimportant stuff and which are in no use to you. Ask yourselves, how could you have so no life that you are wasting it on trying to figure out what is going on in others’ and that too is upsetting you, because they seem far more happier and contented than you. So benefit from it, do what you have to do and skip the non essential stuff.

2.Set a fixed time.

Everyday when you wakeup in the morning, ask yourself when am i going to be free today where i am going to just relax and don’t do anything important. And then prescribe that time to using social websites. What this would do is that it would prevent you from wasting your time. It would stop the urge of taking out your phone in the middle of an important meeting, or studying or while interacting with your friend. Tell yourself each day that this is my time during which i am allowed to login to my social websites and i am not going to use them any other time. It could be in the morning from 8am to 9am or 2pm to 2.30pm or 9pm to 11pm, whatever time suits you. I know it is easier said than done but believe me, it is just going to be hard in the first few days or weeks maximum, but after you get through that period, it is going to be very normal. You would be surprised you are going through the whole day without going into your social sites other than your fixed time that you have set for it.

3.Be wise.

Now there are a lot of people who may be feeling just fine but as soon as they log in to their Facebook accounts, smiles on their faces disappear. Why? Because they are browsing through this album of their friend who is having so much fun and he/she is but all alone. First of all, if that is the case, then deactivate yourself from this virtual world. You won’t have to see anyone laughing and having amazing times, and it could help you immensely in lowering your depression. But if you can’t do that either, then wise up, if people have the right to enjoy their lives, so do you. Go out with friends and family members and have the best of your times. Take selfies and videos and upload them. What this would do is that it would allow you to come out of these feelings of being alone and everybody having fun. You would also notice that you are enjoying seeing other people having fun because you are.

A Story of Broken Heart “Heart Patients” Illustrated in a Humorous Way

Story of broken heart “heart patients”

Heart patients on hearing the news of federal panel’s backing of approval of a new powerful drug to protect against heart attacks left them with series of heart attacks.

if we analyse the situation here, people with heart diseases are mostly 50 and above. According to the doctors one of the leading causes of heart attacks is the high level of presence of LDL which is a bad cholesterol and I sure as hell don’t know what does that even mean?? But ask the sufferers of this pathetic disease, their immediate reaction would be “Oh, doctors can say whatever they like but I know what’s the cause of my heart disease. It’s not the bad cholesterol, its the bad children of mine. They say the drug lowers the level of these cholesterols but I say if you could only lower the preoccupied level of my children, I’d be more than thankful.”

According to these patients, “doctors are very strange people which is very much understandable from the amount of books they read over the course of their lives but we as the victims of this disease would suggest to them, I m sorry did I say “suggest??” what I meant to say is that I on behalf of all my fellow victims “request” the cardiologists to find a formula to straighten out the behaviour of our children, the generation Y. You see, its not the increasing level of bad cholesterol that is the cause, but it is the increasing level of so called “productivity” of these kids that is killing us. Doctors of highly intellect profession, we expect a solution, be it not the most accurate one, but at least something which would make these highly occupied children of ours, for once in their lifetime, want to listen to us.”

“We don’t say that you are wrong, in fact we admire you for trying to come up with a solution to the disease, you maybe right about the bad cholesterol thing, but when we feel discomfort, heaviness or pain in the chest, when the anxiety attacks us, it is generally when we see the heads of our children, yes, not faces, as they are screened onto their smart phones, either occupied by Facebook or coming up with a reply to a friend on what the best pages on meme are?!!! It seems that the only way that we can communicate with them is by whatsapping them or by putting them in our Facebook friends list. But even for that, liking and putting up a nice comment on their posts is something that you don’t want to forget or in more accurate words, you dare not to forget!!”

In the end doctors, feeling their integrity has been attacked heard the outcry of the patients. They sat down with them, had a long debate on how to put some sense into this generation of “cool” kids. They understood that as time is changing and so is the lifestyle, specially now than ever with the inventions and technological advances. Reasonably, they shouldn’t be too harsh on them. Although they did suggest these kids should somehow be told and explained that they can’t be involved in their phones all the time. It is for their own sake that they should allocate certain amount of time for each activity. If they don’t organise themselves, there would be no difference between them and the robots in near future. Imagine that! They will have no feelings and certainly no experiences of this beautiful life. And by the time they get old they would realise, “OMG! Im old already, i want to go back again, I want to feel life and experience it.” You are kidding me right?
