S.N. II

“1000 friends & counting, what does a person do with 1000 friends?”

If those friends are Internet-based they are much like my graphic caption depicts.  You don’t know if you’ve got a beast such as a lion.  This beast might be an exotic animal trainer, then…  Blam, look again, you see that you missed the leather attire along with the whip suggesting some dominatrix activity.  Whatever the mix generated on The Net, you don’t know.

One thousand friends, letmesee.  If anything it is exciting to see so many FOLK interested in your bio.  But let’s be real, an Internet based bio is always full of embellishments.  A standard during the creation of such a thing goes like this.  (Very-very secure in my personal beliefs, own my own home, have a car that is paid for, have a job & love my social life).  All this comes with a pic strategically positioned defining the members’ better side.  A pic that has definitely been Photo Shopped, and if you’ve got a crafty member, they’ve incorporated higher end techniques.

A steady mind would question this especially when considering motives.  Internet relationships normally generate a response on the line of; “I really like what you say and was wondering if we can do a private chat line or something, if that’s okay with you”.  Many assume this is safe as it is an additional way to evaluate the person you are seriously considering gettin’ with.  Not so, once you go off the reservation be prepared to deal with the real as in motivations.  This private chat line is where you will hear those famous initials used over The Net.  “FWB” isn’t foreign to your ears because most of those 1000 friends are no different than you.  Seeking a way out of their drab surroundings.

Social Network members are those who the Politicians need to take a course from as these members play the hypocrisy role way better than most.  Without mentioning any names, (you can go to other sites for the bust-outs, I don’t do it like that), but…  I know of a person just like you probably know of a similar person who speaks so bad about others, then places theses same people’s pic on their Social Network site.  Showing smiling faces & many happy times.

Well, when you establish a friendship you’ve gotta take the good, the bad and the ugly.  So taking this into account and you’re playing The Internet Social Network game, don’t be surprised when you see your pic there with one of those old friends that you fell out with and…  Well , just know today you are a part of the hit parade and tomorrow you will be a part of a totally different hit parade.  One that is built on completely different standards and you have been hit like you didn’t know you could be had!

The premises of The Net is simple and easy to understand.  Check this out.  The Chinese invented black powder but once the Euros’ got a ‘hold of it, realizing the miraculous long-range applications of the stuff.  It was claimed and quickly weaponized, creating the chaos we now experience globally.  And imagine, the Chinese developed the product for use in celebrations.  Hummm, much like a Social Network was designed to be applied as.  A tool to celebrate the ability to connect to life by sharing life.

In my…  Let’s say, Internet research, I have been asked to attend various social gatherings by females who were seeking male “friends“.  Arriving to these events you are greeted by a gracious hostess who would set up these elaborate setting, then sit back and wait.  Wait for the “cream to rise to the surface” as in “let the games begin boyz with the most competitive of you having my pleasures when it’s all said and done”.  I must admit, I sometimes fall to the compulsions of being male.  Engaging in these silly little games boyz always play when a female is in the mist.  I’m cool with this because like women, men also seek the strongest, but what many miss is strength doesn’t always include cleverness.  Word-games in a party setting are all good, but the objective is no different than when playing any other game.  What makes you supreme at a game is recognizing the main objective, not forgetting the goal while understanding when to motivate.  That is mental and I do it well.  Hey, I said this wouldn’t ever be homogenized.

While engaged in these parlor games our hostess had “all her glasses of milk” positioned but…  She forgot something.  No matter if the milk is in waxed paper carton or comes in a huge plastic jug, milk is milk as boyz will be boyz.  What this means is you’ve got to take a moment and review the milk based on known classifications.  For me, I arrived in that ‘ol school style.  I came in a glass jar and was chocolate!  Now kick it up while recalling this all started via The Net.  A place were you cannot read those micro-expressions so well.  And, here we all were, and I was one-up on her and my fellow boyz.  None had anticipated or were ready for my arrival or presence.   “It’s way more than, Got Milk.”

In this case she had her milks, but…  Forgot the consistency of the various flava’s of milk, with Yours Truly not ever being a 2% of anything.  This is to say that what you seek, know the basic characteristics of origin before you…  Right, reach for it.  Social Networks with all those numbers appearing under the invited friends’ column doesn’t mean a thang, or prepare you for what is to come.  Social Networks attract those who are usually intimidated of real personal interactions because with FACETIME there is an immediate unmasking of YOU.  Oh, the masquerade can remain in full effect but this only applies to those who are good at it.

All said and done, technology is meant to advance all civilizations and contacts.  Even those that are carnal in motivations, still…  Nothing beats the vibe that runs through the human body when FACETIME comes into play.  With that physical, visual connection understanding micro-expressions becomes so important.

“You play, I play, but who stays when they find out something isn’t what it appears to be?”

Social has a meaning that is simple.  You engage with every one of your senses primarily for personal pleasures, and when you do, draw in the other with all that has been blessed onto you and don’t hide the faults.  Smile when smiled at or when something amuses you while forgetting the foolishness.

Paul Ekman, PhD, recall?  I really like this guy, his team and what they’ve accomplished in their research of emotions as they relate to micro-expressions.  What is more important is their position regarding ethics.  They refuse to comment on those who are in the public arena when it comes to micro-expressions.  Nor, will his team extend an opinion on those engaged in litigation with many of the masses finding this appalling.  Not me.  Even in the advent of our advanced technology you must have those who have a sense of how quickly something can be put to use based on ulterior motivations.  Some things must remain in the realm where privacy is supreme.  Intimacy reside in this realm.

Social Networks are great for connecting those separated by geo-boundaries.  They are the right tool needed to eclipse the psychological drain that comes from being alone but, they will not end loneliness that comes as a result of one’s personal malfunctions.  Like those who have no real understanding of what human interaction is really about.

Psssss; Sometimes, many times a smile is just a frown turned upside down.  There is no need to run when you see this facial gesture even under the review of micro-expressions.  Communications is just that.  Having the ability to recognize and understand bits & examples of YOU when you see them reflected right back at ‘cha.
