Some Things I’ve Learnt through Facebook & Twitter


Nowadays, the social media universe (which is effectively dominated by the likes of such popular networking utilities as Facebook and Twitter – both of which are mediated through the Internet provisions of ISP ventures like HughesNet internet service) affects the daily lives of billions of people around the globe. This virtual – yet discernibly real – impact is influential both personally and professionally.

Social Media – the New-Age Communicative Front Par Excellence

The notoriety of social media with the public demographic base – of every country that you can think of – largely rests on the ease-of-accessibility and stellar overall user-experience that it manages to impart on a consistent basis. A millennial or Gen-Z’er, based on every day empirical evidence, prefers to make use of the social media tools at his/her disposal to communicate with the outside world – instead of (and in preference to) the unitary and now-deemed-traditional mechanisms of email and chat.

In my long experience in contending with the various novelties (that seem to arise with each passing day) offered through the Facebook and Twitter platforms, I have learned a few key insights which describe the user-engagement trends & dynamics that relate to their regular usage.

The following (brief) listing presents my particular takes on this issue, and these opinionated points may diverge (in both substantial and cursory ways) from the views of the reader.

1.    Employment of Backend Artificial Intelligence Frameworks

In order to enhance the end user-experience made available through their neat platforms, both Facebook & Twitter employ powerful A.I frameworks that tailor content-feeds in accordance with the thematic inclinations of users. This aspect of their operation can be recognized by any experienced user of the said social media utilities quite easily – and is made conspicuous through the types of multimedia offerings published on their ‘home streams’ that bear similitude to all the others that follow & precede them.

2.    People appear to be More Eloquently Verbal

People engaged in normal (in-person & physical) social discourse are usually more self-conscious about what they say to others, and this tendency of theirs lends to the establishment of a certain degree of harmony within the societal sphere. On the Internet, however, and particularly on Facebook and Twitter, I have always found individuals to be more explicitly open about their real views pertaining to a subject.

Perhaps the reason behind this observed overtness stems from the physical barrier that the Internet affords to social media users; which allows them to largely escape unscathed after venting out with some publicly unpalatable expressions of their feelings.

3.    People Like to Adorn Virtual Facades (Avatars)

Being in the virtual world of Twitter and Facebook equips Internet surfers with one additional advantage: the deployment of avatars to conceal their true identities, and the fortification of new ones. This facet of the modern-day Internet is interesting to study, but it can also be quite off-putting when people use it for the purposes of bullying others with profane words indiscreetly (and sometimes illegally).
