I've been on the internet for a long time. Not just social media but internet. When I was 1st introduced to the internet, the year was 1998 and the sound of music to me was the dial tone of my 56k modem. Internet back then was pretty bad. There was no web 2.0 and the mother of social media was mIRc.
It was all good and fun as almost everyone was just as clueless. We do not have much scams or trolls. We do not have things like SMRT Feedback, we do not have Xiaxue and we also do not have Smithankyou. (boohoohoo). There were less judgement, less "rules"and less of what is "do and don't". Basically everyone can do anything and get away with it?
So we fast forward to 2015 and things are way more advance, internet speed is faster, the organisation of information is better, interaction is better as well.
But are things really better? We got leaked in iCloud, we got sites getting hacked, we got nude picture leaked (not complaining), we got internet trolls that hide behind screens that scrutinise everything, complain and comment everything. Basically, the keyboard warriors.
of course, haters gonna hate in these days.
So what do you do about these people?
When life gives you hater, you are make them happy and give them due attention. heh.
"OMG!! Good news for the morning!! I finally getting one of those balless key board warrior hater thing!!! #FinallyFamous And here's a really ugly selfie for you! #Yay #BestTuesdayEver"
What precaution can you do to make internet a better place? What about protecting yourself? Not uploading your own nude picture? Not uploading important information like your address, your credit card, your passport or IC numbers. Having a strong password to prevent hacking? Store things on cloud?
Anyway, I think everyone need to do their part to make internet a better place. So do your part! And if you have haters? Don't get affected! Heh. Here's NOC's video:
