Summary

I am talking about this day and age of how we get so consumed in all kinds of electronics, cell phones, Ipads, Iphones and other social things that we lose ourselves and our relationships. I think I spend more time on Facebook then anything, which is really bad. Hope you can relate and see where I am coming from. Enjoy!!

We are all a product of this social network society.
Producing short feelings encased in parenthesis,
Desensitizing our thoughts,
Reducing our feelings to three syllables
and symbols with smiley faces and punctuations.
Using Acronyms as a way of communication.
To get to know people by means of short statements like "ASL"
which mean age/sex/location.
We can have a whole relationship, that has nothing to do with the presence of a physical body.
We use instant messenger to see if someones home.
Why don't we just pick up the phone? Just a suggestion!
Maybe because you don't have time, almost on that next level to candy crush saga!
What a mess it would be if there was a complete black out!
Relationships would be broken off.
People would actually be forced outside to live a life they never get to see!
But we are stuck trying to reboot, a systematic culture of Internet Websites.
See, this is what we've become!
A generation of databases, being programed and re-programed; so they can install a virus,
in our minds making us become like the walking dead.
We have fought to stay out of the box, but we have been fooled to go in and maintain this box.
Never wanting to breakout of this social diverse world of destruction.
Spending hours upon countless hours, of unproductive activities.
Instead of finally opening our eyes we allow ourselves, our families
to be sucked in these social network societies.
Putting us back in captivity, placing our brains in these gas chambers.
Like we never left the concentration camps. Like we are still stuck in slavery.
So they can make games to control your day.
And you can't even get up from that screen to use the bathroom,
because you are almost to the next level; that you spent all night trying to beat.
So they upload the very thing that traps you and keeps you captivated.
While the world is in turmoil, you are not even aware of what's going on around you.
"Tag this!" you obey, "Click this!" you obey, "Believe this!"
and you believe what ever they install, your mind will compute.
You need to reboot! You need to reboot!
De-frag your system! You don't have enough ram in your mother board!
You make it to easy!
Now they know how to control you.
And they say slavery is gone! No it's just begun!
We chase love looking in chat rooms and social dating sites,
trying to find our husbands on match maker.
Only using fire fox as our protection.
Like, you might not ever have that one chance to meet a real live serial killer.
Let me say this in your language! How can you say, "ILY" meaning I Love You,
to a face you've never seen. But we, "SSITD" still stay in the dark.
Because these cyber space emotions are not real. And we are so out of touch with reality!
Waking up to a, "XOXO" meaning hugs and kisses and a, "WYWH" wish you were here.
Really? When your only a drive away.
"LOL", "OIC" You would rather see me on Skype and kiss the computer screen.
But we are all, "IRL" in real life are, "ISO" in search of something.
And these social network companies depends on you. "B/C"
Because what! They are only doing, "BAU" Business as usual!
