A perspective on Facebook

A perspective on Facebook, January 21, 2019:

Many days and weeks, I receive more comments via a tiny Facebook group (which is specifically about a 40 year old Linn phonograph turntable) than I receive on my regular Facebook timeline. It’s not uusual, but my phone beeps when there is a Facebook message.  It’s a feature that occurs so infrequently.  It does not take a rocket scientist to know that that bias can be traced easily. From that perspective, Facebook and its ilk in social media are ALL at risk. All of them can always find out anything about you. You can also watch them. The problem is that it also must be about them. It is their property. Yep.

Or, we can decide to use their media rather than be abused by it.  Used to what purpose you may ask?

Will we tire of looking at ourself?  Or, will we tire of loving another?  Or, will we love at all?  And then, will we tire of that?  And what does that say about us?  Can you love another if you don’t love yourself?  The answer is no.  If you don’t value yourself, then you have nothing to offer of value, Ayn Rand would say.

It says to me that we are being analytical.  But not too analytical.

It says that to me everyday is a new dance.
