Too Much Information

Zip it

In the world of social media and the joy of texting, our society has become fans of TMI (TOO MUCH INFORMATION). Everyone is texting, tweeting, Facebooking, etc. about every little detail about their life. You all read the stories about how your friend’s two-year old son made a funny face, seen the picture, threw up, and five minutes later you saw another one. Also we all get the updates about everyone’s life, like if Mike broke his arm he texts everyone on the way to the ER and then tweets about how hot the nurse is. Maybe it’s just me, but as a society aren’t we over sharing a little too much?

Here’s the thing, I am a very private person who doesn’t want to over share all his information to cyberspace and his friends. Not everyone needs to know where I am, what cute thing my dog did this morning I woke up, and where I am going all day.

The world loves mystery and we should allow ourselves to fall back into that. I am seriously, to the ones who post, do you read all the post that people post about themselves everyday? Chances are, probably not, so what allows you to air our all your dirty laundry to the world when you don’t read others?

So everyone instead of posting all those things in your life about XYZ, how about just taking a break from it. Post every once in a while, make it fun, upbeat, and things people want to read about. There is enough drama and sadness in the world, that we don’t need to read about yours.

Facebook and all those social media outlets are great, but use them in moderation. Don’t continue to post stories of the hamburg you just ate from Pete’s Burger Hut (unless they are paying you) or don’t post about how horrible your boyfriend/girlfriend is over the net. None of this ever ends well and honestly, we are so overloaded with information right now, that people get sick of reading it.

Life is meant to be lived, not meant to be lived on a computer screen. Go out there experience it with the people you are with. You don’t need to bring the rest of the world there with you. Everything is much better in person anyway. Enjoy the life and share stories in person, bring the human element to everything, try to cut back on the tweeting and facebooking. When you are out in public with friends and family, PUT DOWN THE PHONE… LOOK UP… DON’T TWEEK or POST ON FACEBOOK…Just enjoy the time with the people you are with.

Not over sharing is key in this Savage World; that you are no longer just living in, but beginning to own!
