What Are You Promoting Online?

April 30, 2017

There are several popular social media websites that give people a platform to voice their views. Some use it wisely. Some do not and to the detriment of those who follow their pages.  We should endeavor to promote and espouse good things online. There is so much negativity in the world. Do not add to the problem. Promote things that benefit society.

It is good to make people smile, laugh, think and peacefully fight for justice through your words.  However, promoting entertainment of a questionable nature is not beneficial to anyone’s soul. I make it a point not to promote entertainment, sports or political matters of an explicit or sacrilegious nature. I’ve given away free promo on my sites, but I try to ensure it is something that will not send the wrong message that contradicts my beliefs, morals and values.

Spreading negativity through hate speech that demeans, defames or slurs others is another issue that is the equivalent of spreading darkness in an already dark world that needs light…as in the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel that gives people hope.

There are promising people online who need to know they are loved and have a place in this world. They don’t need to be demeaned or pressured to feel they have to  be sexually vulgar and crass to be liked online.

So often I see people engage in demeaning stunts for attention on social networking and it harms their name with potential employers who do internet searches before hiring applicants. Once these items are placed on the internet, they also tend to stay there. Therefore, be careful what you put out there. Be a shining example of integrity and class.

What You Post On Twitter, Instagram And Facebook Will Cause People To Judge You Positively Or Negatively

 

June 30, 2015

instagramTwitter-logoWhat are you posting on Instagram and Twitter and how is it reflecting on you and your culture. As a blogger, I read many social networking pages by people of all colors and from many nations, to gauge public feedback on topics. There are times when I am impressed by what I read. However, there are also times when I am concerned by items posted online.

I’ve read posts by men cutting down and insulting women in very brutal terms, as a means of belittling and attempting to control. I’ve read posts containing items by men threatening to hit women, thinking it makes them look cool, in conduct that is entirely inappropriate.

However, women do not favor abrasive, arrogant, insulting men. Women also do not favor men bragging about their many sexual conquests online, showing off and trying to prove to certain men that they are masculine. Decent, intelligent men and women reading such items are not impressed.  It only appeals to a small group of individuals, who do not understand women or how off putting such behavior is to people with sense.

Women prefer nice, decent men. It is a major turn off for most women reading items online by a man bragging about all his girlfriends and how promiscuous he is in life. It leads many decent women to write a man off who states such things. Only gold diggers and hookers don’t care about such things, because all they want is money and will scam you to get it.

I’ve seen pages on Twitter and Instagram, where men who show off about their sexual conquests and how stern they are with women, also wonder why good women don’t flock to them and why their cultural background is stereotyped.  Look no further than what you state online.

People need to remember their words online are a reflection of them, their families and culture. People will judge you, your family and culture by your words and deeds, in attempting to ascertain who you are as a person. Going online and playing into every negative stereotype does not help matters. It’s also wise to remember potential employers and the police read social networking as well. Do not put yourself at a financial disadvantage or get yourself into unnecessary trouble. Set a positive example.

What Messages Are Kids Being Sent About Sex (Video)

May 31, 2015

Video of 6-year-old girls twerking was widely disseminated on Twitter as people rightly criticized its inappropriate content and what’s becoming of kids in society today

Hollywood and the internet are sending kids some serious and detrimental messages about sex and it is doing damage in their young, impressionable lives. There are vines and You Tube videos of preteens and teens wearing next to nothing while twerking and gyrating like their favorites stars such as Miley Cyrus and Rihanna.

This is highly inappropriate and sexualizing minors, which can only lead to trouble in young minds not mature enough to process the full implications and responsibilities of sex.

Preteens, such as 8-year-olds are online making very adult and highly sexual statements on social networking about the opposite sex who attend their local schools and it is alarming. It is not good or healthy for a young, developing child’s psyche to be engaging in such thought and speech.

Preteens and underage minors should not be having sex nor talking about it in graphic and profane terms on social networking. It is inviting trouble from sexual predators, such as pedophiles.

Some may call it old fashioned to espouse these views, but when parents end up with an underage pregnancy in their family, 12-year-old girls expecting their own baby, suddenly life becomes very real and scary for the child carrying the child and the child who fathered the child, neither of whom are mentally equipped for parenthood.

Emotional and mental developmental progress should be done in stages, as the body naturally matures during puberty. Puberty should not include parenthood. However, it happens and in those difficult cases, minors should be given all the help and support they need.

Parents need to watch what their kids are getting up to online and protect them from growing up too fast. Parents need to talk to their children about sex and promiscuity.

I often see items on social networking tweeted in response to items that are trending (being written about by many on Twitter) and at times there are explicit and scandalous tweets by minors (8 to 16-year-olds) that warrants concern for the direction society is going in that kids who can’t even vote, drive or drink are stating such highly sexual things (oral sex, anal sex, vagina sex) that should be reserved for adulthood.
