The Social Networking Craze

Facebook. Twitter. That kinda thing.

Social networking has become quite popular (that’s an understatement, in case you didn’t catch that).

Millions of people use Social network websites, and most of those people obsess over their accounts. These people check their accounts a dozen-dozen times every DAY, and they post every little thing; ‘I’m feelin good right now how bout u?’… that kind of thing.

But facebook don’t work fer nothin’. It gets it’s money by… Yes! you got it! Selling your personal information (i.e., what ads you click on, what games you play, what friends you have, etc, etc).

Be careful what you put on your profile, what info you reveal, what you click on, what you play, ’cause you’re gonna get some ads emailed to you, and some pop-ups that try to sell you what you ‘tell’ facebook or twitter you’re interested in.

Also, don’t obsess over your social networking profile. Make sure you spend plenty of time off the computer and with your friends in person, and if possible, more time with them than online.

See ya soon,

New Video Game: “Shoot-‘Em-Up 3–Blood ‘n’ Guts”!

Hello again, faithful readers!

You know what?

Video games are awesome.

I love ’em.

I love playing them.

But nowadays the majority of V.G.’s are rated M for Mature.  WHERE DID ALL THE AWESOME GAMES GO?!?

Personally, I think the best games are the ones made in the 2000/2006 year range.

Unfortunately, this un-kid-friendly stuff doesn’t stop at video games.

Comic books, for instance.  Batman wasn’t full of really, really, really, really dark stuff until recently.  If you want an example, take the Batman movie The Dark Knight.

Thankfully, not all games and comics are like these.

Now, don’t let me insult you.  Maybe you like the things I’m talking about.  I’m not saying they’re bad, I’m just saying they’re not all-ages.  I’m not gonna like that too much, as I am 12.

Some kids play games they’re too young to play.  Their parents have different views than others, different rules, different ideas of what this will cause.  Maybe nothing, maybe a lot.  Depends on the kid.

Just expressing my viewpoints, as this is something I think about a lot.

I’ll post soon! (comments more than welcome.)

See ya.
