  9. So true about Internet celebrity. Many people have so much to say on the internet but can not influence anyone positively in the real world.

    Waiting for the story behind your book

    1. Yea, people that open their mouth and say very mean things, lol.

  12. Totally agree

    I am still struggling to understand why some people post bits about their mundane, trifling, boring, inane and inconsequential life on the internet....
    'I wore green shoes today..'
    'I went to a picnic yesterday....'
    'I had a fight with my boyfriend....'
    'We made up.....'
    'We broke up again....'
    Really?

    1. Thanks. I don't have a problem with their 'celebrity status', but I believe we should learn to respect each other and not haul insults on the internet

  15. Gosh! sistah! you just spoke my Language!

    Jeez! outside this cyber world, some people are just not worth it!

    Cyber bullies, have turned blogsville into something else!

    Having plenty comments or followers does not mean you have 'friends'.

    So like this poem, that i am going to read it again!

    kudos sistah!

  18. You were true to your words in writing this poem which really reflects my previous blog post about 'Potential Pitfalls of Social Media'.

    The Internet for its benefits gives some people a false sense of anonymity which doesn't really exist.

    1. Yea, I wrote the poem three weeks ago.
      I guess when people feel they are anonymous, the begin to act out of character, cos they feel no one is watching them

  23. Well written. You hit the nail on the head deep into the skull. What's the point of living a fake life on social media platforms when the real life is bland and empty? Well, I'll excuse some people who see this as the only way to express themselves but then, what do we say about those who go too far and begin to literally 'oppress' online?

    1. Yes, it is the insults that are annoying. Never been a victim of cyber bullies sha.

  24. I just said a prayer for you. Remember He said whe we pass through fire, He'll be with us. Stay strong. This too shall pass.

    I like your poem. :o)

  33. I don't understand the kind of pleasure people derive from having so many friends on facebook. People you know, the ones you don't know and the ones you will never post a message on their wall and the other way round!

    That part of people that cannot look their mate in the eyes and call them stupid making some funny comments on facebook and twitter is the most amusing.

    1. Having a lot of friends on facebook can help you for publicity purposes. I went on a deleting rampage sometime back, but now, I regret it.

  34. Nice one @ilola. It does seem that some people cant separate real life from cyber life. till you drop off fb/twitter and realise that not one of your 3000 friends bothered to ask after you.
