In today’s “world on the top of your hand”, you can easily get information about people, their relationship status, working place and whereabouts. This was not the case previously – the 90’s were much more different, not to even mention the years before. You would have to work really hard to find out about a certain job opening and interview, or you would have to get a private detective to follow someone to find out their whereabouts. And, you would have to call the home of your friend to set up a date to go to the mall or the park – now, we’re carelessly spending much more time on the cellphone, knowing that people that are on the other side of the world (literally), can be found in just a second.
But is this really that much convenient?
Our phones became much more than just tools to get reached when we are needed – we are being followed by people we don’t even know that exist!
That’s why you should NEVER EVER write on social networks, nor discuss in circles with people you don’t know about the following subjects:
- Your finances – it is very easy to get robbed, besides all the technologies and alarms and passwords. So, bragging about your financial situation, might get you robbed – the information will definitely get to “the right ears”. On the other hand, complaining about your financial situation will net get you any better on that field as well – will you really want mercy from your friends, or the most common advice that everything will work out eventually?
- Goals and plans for the future – you should definitely not mention these things if you are an enterpreneur or have a business on your own – you never know just who might be your competition! Also, sharing optimistic and unique ideas might get someone else inspired to do what you’ve already dreamed about, leaving you with crushed hopes and dreams. Scientific studies have shown that those who work in silent, achieve the best results.
- Your kind and good deeds – bragging about your good deeds towards friends, or homeless people might be dangerous for you in two ways: – the people that you’ve helped might start resenting you for talking about that example. People want help, but they don’t want other people to know they needed help at some time in their lives! Remember that! Or, in the other way, you might get new followers and strangers around you, talking you into helping them in a similar way. Good deeds have the deepest meaning when they are done in silent!
