Living each day much muchier
For most folks, no news is good news; for the press, good news is not news.
Facebook. Do you ‘like’ or ‘unlike’ it? Is it part of your life or do you detest its incursion on your privacy? Do you pity its addicts or envy their number of friends?
Millions of people now publish their lives daily (in some cases more) and it’s not just for self gratification. We’re addicted to connection. Constant conversation flows back and forth and nobody’s quite sure, is it good or bad for us?
Here’s something to consider, at least.
How much of the daily news will impact you directly. Not just interest you, but is actually relevant to you and your life?
Dad jailed for under-10’s footy bashing. Thousands gather for glimpse of Oprah. Therese Rein wins human rights medal. Kayaker dead after horror croc attack.
Now imagine your own personal newspaper populated with people you know.
Actually, it’s right at your fingertips.
Yes, Facebook is problematic, but it’s powerful too. Use its powers for good (not evil).
