Yesterday I linked to a small post on Gawker that mentioned the name of a relative or a relative of mine and posted it on my Facebook account. The lovely young women whose name was mentioned was not the one pictured...sadly enough I did not realize that the offensive picture associated with the article would come up and when it did I didn't remove it as quickly as I should. I don't think I realized that I could! Well, it turns out her dad was not happy. I did my Facebook research and removed it. I also apologized for his unhappiness. We all knew it was not his daughter!
Now everyone you should see this is a warning...what we post socially has to be monitored very carefully. The world is watching! Even those innocent remarks are seen and what we think is just between the involved parties can be inadvertently put up for the world to see. I would even say that when Gawker used the woman's full name they somehow involved everyone with that name. I know my profile is up with my name online. This is a job for me. Hiding does not work.
So there it is...I am just saying! Be very careful.
The reason I am adverse to profanity is that it is, very simply, a verbal release of negative energy.ReplyDelete
I don't view the user of profanity as "bad," or any such thing, I just wish to avoid being exposed to the negativity.
I agree...I find that when I feeling a little grinchy I am more apt to use those little profanities. I don't feel better after i am done that. Sigh!!!ReplyDelete
