Do you remember the last time when you did something that you didn’t share on any of the social media?
I know you don’t unless you are quite unfrequent on them… Or may be perhaps before you started using any of these…
In regard to updating our status have come in trend the very popular and unavoidable ‘hashtags’. If you are a social media user, there is no need to explain about it. Even if you aren’t, you might have heard it somewhere or the other. Using ‘Hashtags’ is a very smart, short and appealing way to express all your feelings, events and everything in just a few words. They are a perfect description of what you have on your mind. #party #enjoying #love_at_first_sight #breakup #feeling_low #home #ldr -a few to name, who doesn’t love putting them all around their fb posts and photos. And not a single on a post, but countless hashtags do you find on any of the posts.
Lately, we had started living our life through hashtags. Our day starts with #bedtea and ends with #goodnight_kiss; and between these are an endless number of hashtgs. And some of these are even fake, just to trend their walls,people post shit. I mean, like wonder, it does makes sense to post #vacation@goa, but does it make any sense posting, #waiting_for_pizza_boy.(Shouldn’t these people have asked it on fb only, you know instant delivery, no wait…) And guess what almost all of the friends make more shitty comments on it, like ‘that 30min wait for dominos is like 30days;last time I died of hunger.’, ‘I would have asked for his mobile number and bike number and caught him half way’.
Just wonder if life worked on those hashatgs. You’d receive a message #salary_credited_100k, you go to ATM for withdrawl and the machine displays 100k hashatgs. Would you prefer hashtags over money?
Or your science teacher would say, #leaves#chlorophyll#CO2#H2 O#O2#Photosynthesis…Would you understand a bit of thing?
Or your food would be cooked like #cooking_food and #food_cooked and you’d eat like #ate_more_than_enough. Would you be able to fill your stomach or even enjoy the taste of food…
You would bear a baby on fb with hashtags, #pregnant#labour_pain#baby_delivered_successfully#motherhood/fatherhood,all at the same time, and instantly you would get it and it will have a face hashtag shaped.
So would you love your abstract life?
Do everything, use hashatags, but only where they make a sense, where they are required, where they don’t spoil the dignity of the social media.
