Social Network? Fuk all of em!!!

Over the past 8 years, social networks has taken over peoples lives, literally. I took the time to break down each of them and why people seem to be so attached to them.

First social network I ever joined was blackplanet. A simple page to let the world know who you are. Blackplanet was easy, simple and trashy! If you met anyone from blackplanet it was on some sex shit! I feel like the soul purpose of this network was to meet folks online and fuck but that's just me. I didn't have a digital cam to take pics and didn't know how to do html so my page was on some whack shit, I got no play.. NO PIC NO RESPONSE haha!! I met a bunch of yahoo messenger buddies from BP though, I enjoyed it for what it was and what i got out of it. Nothing to major..

became rappers because of Myspace was the next social network I joined. It was an upgrade from Black Planet. I don't feel it was trashy like bp. I finally got a digi cam so I had pics and what not. It's too easy to find people on here! Folks I haven't seen in years and didn't want to see found me on myspace. I liked the fact that it was more business handled on here. If you had a company or was trying to network and get people to know about what it is you do, you could do it on myspace and that was cool up until the influx of fucking RAPPERS! Toooo many ma fuckasmyspace. IF YOU NEVER RECORDED A SONG BEFORE MYSPACE POPPED UP OR YOU BECAME A RAPPER IN 2004-05, AND YOUR OVER THE AGE OF 23, YOUR A FUCKING JOKE! why I signed up for It was too easy for someone to just record a song, post it on myspace, take a few pictures and be a rapper. Bitch you ain't a rapper and that'sFacebook. So I don't have to deal with all the rappers, the snooping around, the drama. Myspace became about musicians, old friends popping up, and who has the most friends..

When facebook came around, it was exclusive. You had to approve someone for them to see all your info and what not. That was cool. It was more laid back and more casual then myspace and BP. It was less drama and bullshit.. Until everyone got on there and they changed the layout. Now its just too much!!! If you don't want everyone in your buisness, DON'T GET FACEBOOK. I don't sit on there and snoop around on pics, wall posts, status updates, that's just not me but.. I've seen many people just sit on there and click pictures, see who tagged in the pic, add the person tagged in the picture, write on their wall and befriend someone on the strength of being nosey. If that wasn't enough, you get an influx of messages from, not rappers, but party and club promoters. I don't know how the fuck they send me messages, I don't know how to stop them from coming. I'm tired of the drama that comes with facebook. All the nosey ma fuckas who get a kick out of snooping around, I let them have it. I no longer upload pics, add females that I date, write on peoples wall. I just use it to showcase my music and blog.

Twitter is bullshit. It's an instant messenger that isn't so instant. The site always fucking up and its becoming a competition on who can have the most followers. It's status updates only. No pics, and you can't send long messages. Bullshit. "Let me tell people what I'm doing at all times" is what I think the site is about. I only like it because I can tell people when I drop new music and a new blog. Other then that, I prefer instant messaging then to tell people what I'm doing at all times.

I have only signed up for these four social networks. I signed up for them for promo use for music and blogs. I don't care to keep up with people and what their doing because I'm just not that kind of person. I'm not knocking anyone who love these networks, do ya thang. I sometimes hate the fact that people have relied on the Internet to meet friends and lovers. Some people can't even talk to you in person but if you get online, they can talk yo ears off. The Internet has killed public speaking. It gives people a false security and allow them to just talk and not worry about being rejected in person. Some people are totally different online then they are in person and look totally different online then they do in person. We gotta stop relying on these mediums to meet people and to have a social life. Just cause you have 20,000 friends on myspace don't mean you have 20,000 friends in the real world.. We are still living in the real world right? -DizZy

Great Post--think I may just re-tweet it!!! LOL

Jasmine Nicole April 7, 2009 at 3:43 PM  

truth !
I've been/currently a member on all.
I never took em serious tho, I was always on other low key sites or forums...still nothing serious.
It's all just entertainment.
I don't mind twitter, i think ppl are just now finding out about it and its nothing but hype. The ppl who are just now finding out about it are the ones complaining and its like no one put a gun to your head and made you join...same goes for other sites.

I hardcore fcuk with the last part of yaa post.

people will talk your ear off online but wont say a damn word or two in person.

I had mad facebook/myspace addiction for a while but then I realized how bullshit it was and deleted em all.

Maaaan I remember when BlackPlanet was POPPIN...now I'm like Black whaaat?! Myspace, agreed. Everyone thinks they're a damn rapper, or artist period, smh. I don't even know why I have one; photography purposes I guess...Facebook is whatever, I enjoy changing my status every now and then. And I'm not even gonna front I fxng love Twitterrrrrr. But that soon, will become like the rest of them and fall off.

Then there'll just be more crap to flood the internet and help people brush off their real life insecurities & what-not. Jeez...

I met a lot of lifelong friends on blackplanet. Some I've known for yeaaars on top of years. (bout 6). lol. But around eh.. 04, or 05 myspace came about and dominated because bp was inhibiting my graphic and html using skills. lol..

myspace will forever be my shit.

twitter, is a new addiction. i can feel it fading slowly though.

facebook is the devil.

wow I love this post I've joined every site in that same order. BlackPlanet...wow can we say throwback?? I remember those days.

Anyways some people are just so lame in real life that they have to put on some facade for the WWW to see & assume that they're "cool". they have no life. And since these sites are talking over peoples lives they've lost their communication skills, thats why they can't hold a decent conversation, or they'd rather spend hours in front of a screen "conversing".

BUT thats just my opinion.
To Each His Own

"Just cause you have 20,000 friends on myspace don't mean you have 20,000 friends in the real world.."
so true...the ppl who have the most friends on myspace usually be the ones with the least friends in REAL life..lol..the way i see it is..
blackplanet= junior high
myspace= high school
blogger= college
tweeter= dropout w/ too much time to update ppl on yuhr EVERY move...
another great one diZz
