Follow me!!

So Facebook asks "Whats on your mind?" and Twitter asks "Whats happening?". Social media is trying to be a boon to some people but for some its just waste of precious time.So tell me how many of you spend some quality time on internet. The good old days of internet has vanished where people used to come online seldom as the cafe would charge 40 bucks for 1 hour and only richmen could provide such facility to their children.But that was some 5 years ago.Considering today's scenario one can say that  even a common man can afford internet.You get internet on your mobile and there are twitter and facebook which are compatible and optimized for  mobile users. These days I see that lots of celebrities are  showing active interest in Twitter.I admit Twitter is fun. But its sometimes cool to read those tweets. Amitabh Bachhan who is a legendary actor tweets about Rajnikanth who is another Superstar in South India.The Anna Hazare anti corruption campaign proved successful and enormous support was gathered through this social media. Sachin Tendulkar is now India's Twitter king as he has more than 10 million followers. I take this opportunity to wish master a very happy birthday .Happy birthday Sachin "GOD" Tendulkar.

So by writing whats happening and whats on your mind ,don't you feel that you are exposing your real life to the virtual world. Now a days popularity is measured on the basis of the followers you have on these social media's.God Damn I have some 275 followers in Twitter and 330 in blogger ,so does it means I am not popular?.Well this is not the case.So whats all this fuss about Follow me!!.
There used to be a time when two friends  who meet after a long period of time would say
"hey add me in Orkut!" Forget Orkut,its dead now.
It was soon replaced by "Hey,Are you in Facebook? then add me!!" .

Facebook these days represents our virtual world .It indicates our virtual  reality.How virtual are we? Facebook says I am 80% virtual. How I get it is based on some stupid ,absurd application which claims to measure your virtual quotient. So the one thing which is popular now is this.

"ok Follow me on Twitter ,Ok?" 
How easy is life? Just click on follow and you get the updates from your friends in form of Tweets.

A Girl asks her boyfriend to follow her.This boyfriend of hers is not techsavy unlike her.So he thinks his job is to follow her anywhere and everywhere she goes. So there she goes to the washroom and she is shocked to see her boyfriend in the Ladies washroom.

"Hey ,what the fuck are you doing here ?" she says
"you just asked me to follow you,so I'm following you," he replies.
"Idiot,Following me doesn't ,means that you follow me everywhere.I asked you to follow me on Twitter," she gets vexed for once and throws him out of the washroom.

Creepy Ehhh!!

Nevermind  and hey I forgot to tell you that you can Follow me too ;) My Twitter handle is @Crazy_geniusS

So now I hope you won't be knocking my door to follow me. :P .Take care and have fun and you can follow me on my blog if you like my writings. I am planning to write a short story after a long time.
God bless and hope to be back with sometimes and I take this opportunity to welcome my new readers.


  1. Thanks for following me. lol :P

  2. LOL.
    I am vexed with this social networking sites n deleted all my accounts in Twitter,FB n Orkut yesterday.
    Somewhere it hurts but I thought that's gud 4 me n 4 my studies:)

  3. nice post
    u wrote right abt social networking
    and i don't think people still show real faces there ,still they used it for fun only and more for attraction
    most of the status on fb and twitter is just to attract people
    i used internet a lot and not for social networking
    i used it to gain knowledge about my subjects
    and hai followed u on ur blog..

  4. I just use Facebook to converse with friends back in Florida and others far away from me. I don't have the patience for Twitter.

    I also have my blog, but beyond that, at least until it comes time for me to promote my second book (whenver that may be, since I still have to research it, write it, and find a publisher, the latter of which I didn't have to do last time), I've no desire to engage in any other facets of social networking. My idea of social networking is decidedly anti-social, whereby my love for one book leads to another book, and it's my brain networking that way rather than with anyone else.

  5. I left an "e" out of "whenever" and didn't notice. But considering my record otherwise in that comment, that's pretty damn good.

  6. These social networking sites are turning ppl crazy. Especially ppl on fb seem the most possessed cuz they leave status msgs like "going to pee ll return in a sec" I mean thts crazzzzzzzy man. huh I am not on fb and i am real happy bout it. Just joined twitter cuz of edu purposes so i dont actually use it quiet a lot. great post as always : )

  7. and yup i am done with the tag.thx again : )

  8. have to agree with what u said... :D

  9. Very well written and really true stuff..:) interesting read.

  10. The application of fb always cracks me up and i have so many people around who use those apps and expect the computer to tell them what's in their mind, duhhh. seriously? oh common!!!!
    Too much.
