Giving Thanks For My Gift Of Discernment.
It is yet another Tuesday Newsday
and today we are in for a special treat.
As a result of moving forward and working out the bugs in this new and improved ultra pimp system, I figured it best to see if we can in fact work together to come up with solutions that work for the mutual benefit of everyone involved, so while conducting some research on matters of social media, I came across this insightful article on Mashable.com
that explores the concept of a strictÂ real name policy that has been implemented by Google+
(my personalÂ Google+ profile link)Â and whether or not it really is in the bestÂ interest of its users as well as the websiteÂ administrators to continue toÂ keep this policy in effect.
Interestingly enough, it is an opinion article (OP-ED), in which the publication disassociates itself from the articles stance and sticks it to its author, which usually happens when there is some hard to stomachÂ truth being discussed, and this particular article actually goes as far as attempting to be hip by using references from Hip-Hop culture and artistsÂ to explain the position held by its author, which often happens when a need to keep it real presents itself to a certain group of individuals.
In closing, what the article points to is the basic yet complex concept of personal and socialÂ identity
, and while the concept of Fake ID’s is nothing new, the information age and its technologies have brought about some interesting and alarming trends that insiders know can be destructive to an entire society, which runs on what? You’ve guessed it… COMMUNICATION
With that said, keeping this online publication embedded with substance is a must to retain its value, so the now normal formula of listingÂ actual dictionaryÂ definitions of the terms has been applied so that each can nowÂ make more informed decisions about their identities, in regards to the preferredÂ character traits of their own choosing.
