Selfishness of Social Media

 

 

Cordova, TN; February 13, in the year of our Lord 2015--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is bringing up a topic that has been internally discussed for over a year now. What is this topic? What is this issue? Well it more of an observation than anything else. What is it? How utterly, totally, and completely selfish social media actually is. Social media is Daffy Duck screaming: “MINE, MINE, MINE!” Or a toddler yelling: “LOOK AT ME!” It is all about having people like you, and follow you, and tell you how wonderful you are. Starting to sound like The Emperor’s New Clothes, or a whole bunch of YES-MEN telling you what you want to hear.

I have scientifically studied this for months. Family Friendly Gaming would give away free games online on the social media channels. Our likes and followers would sky rocket. We did not do any give-a-ways for a few weeks and those dwindled the fell off. As long as we gave them what they wanted they liked us. So buying adoration. It can be easily seen from a variety of different gaming sites. They give stuff away to get higher numbers. I also denoted something very interesting in terms of who likes and retweets. As well as what they like and retweet. There are real genuine people who like and retweet stories, reviews, images, videos, and more from Family Friendly Gaming. There are also company representatives that like and retweet the work we publish. The interesting thing is these company representative only like and retweet stories that related to them. We might publish fifteen different stories in a day. They only like and retweet their stories.

It dawned on me that despite the words being used when a company representative likes and retweets only their content they are actually saying they only care about themselves. Which fits right under the definition of selfishness. If they cared about Family Friendly Gaming they would like all items from that day. Whether it is five, ten, fifteen or more. Ultimately I look at that and shake my head. Whenever I find out a reader liked something I encourage staffers to see if there is more stuff they said we can like/favorite. I like to try and return five or more in response to their one. It is a way we can be nice, and go above and beyond. It also shows we care about them, and not just ourselves. It is my hope that this concept will get through to the massive amounts of selfishness on social media.


God bless,
