Social Networking today

Updated on January 5, 2015

Unity comes at a huge cost to the individual today!

Connecting with your fellow man and woman is imperative today. Disconnecting however happens a great deal too. Networking today takes earnest efforts and strides to do what's right for oneself and for all others. If you are struggling in this regard, it may be due to the fact that you may be self centered and only care for the likes of yourself.

This really isn't the most wisest approach at all, and especially when it comes to networking with others online, mainly because we all need one another. (To help another person without expecting anything in return, is indirectly helping out humanity in some way or another for sure.)

"I affirm this to be true and undeniably self evident, I have been a person who contributes to a online global community. I have been someone who cares for the likes of all others that I do indeed come in contact with today."

Whatever your part you play in the full scheme of this bigger picture today, will indeed determine that of your future success. It's up to you to determine such a reality, and the choice is yours today to begin to think about making such a change.

Sometimes washing your hands of any given situation is the best approach


Dealing with negative feedback

It's not easy to let go of negative thoughts, happenings, occurrences and the likes. It also isn't easy to just up and change overnight, but the major thing to be certain of is that of the true moral fibers of which you've become as a person today and surely as a social networking person. Your actions towards all others may be perceived on differing levels as approachable, or unapproachable and its one undeniable and inescapable fact. (Not everyone will like you, and for what you stand for, hence we all have our freedom of speech and may like what or whom we choose to or not.)

Truth be told a dilemma does indeed exist in the views and overall perspectives that others in any social community, may indeed have on you, or of you (Becoming an easy target isn't a good thing at all either way). Whether you care or not for all others is completely arbitrary and ambiguous to that of your online activities with all others and not just one select group or party. This is so because no one is all seeing and all knowing. (For example what happens on some other web location may not be seen by everyone and at all times, so some situations that arise are completely isolated incidents if anything.)

However, people will always feel that they have some sort of angle on you no matter what happens. Either the likeable or dis-likeable perspective views of these folks will also tend to make them appear to be better off in the end or somehow superior in some odd way to that of you. Maybe this is the underlining motivation for them to isolate and focus on a certain person, who knows. The fact remains in how such people project upon onto the online computer screens for all others to see, the energy they have emitted holds and bears the truth all in itself.

The only way to truly fight such a thing online that may or may not be apparently wrong, is to either ignore what's being put up and out entirely, or delete per say a negative comment, block such individuals if they are indeed being abusive, or report them for their intolerable acts. Now, acting as if what they've done wrongly wasn't bothering you is no good at all, lets say it occurred here on hubpages, then such a thing needs to be addressed promptly to rid the network of such negative activity or intolerable acts that are causing harm to the unity and good conductivity of such a social community.

Dazzled in distress and dangling off a hot wire


The sore Loser phase - Networking feeling no connections or communications are coming your way

Once a loser always a loser right, and it may become a tag that's been placed on such a person maybe spread around by childish rumors, but hope is never over for such a person who shows their true emotions and never holds back, but also does it not to bring harm to anyone. (Some folks are being real behind these computer screens and many others are truly being as fake as possible.)

A come back like no other may be derived from such a persons once low life positioning in such a networking community and or non-acceptance by any social group (The under dog approach - Rudy!).

The real truth to it all lies in all of those whom have managed to maintain falsehood of oneself, and to make things appear as if they're indeed the most righteous, the most loved and cherished or most caring individuals when in the background they truly aren't at all. Holding grudges, scoring vendetta's indirectly and the likes. (Social communities have many differing personality types and its not at all about any single person, its about us all as a united global community.)

Staging the scene of a crime

False perception of self, can become a true venom indeed and in any social environment or community at large, and also used as a complete disguise, or vice to win over the crowds in the millions. (Hitler staging of his false flag event or also known as the Reichstag fire, etc...)

It's a most definite truth mainly if and when such individuals aren't being true to themselves and definitely not true to all others in their paths of self declaration. It's virtually impossible to help everyone no matter what anyone may think or believe. It's virtually impossible to change all others as well today, because us humans are stubborn old farts, and many are not ready for such an evasive change of actions, behaviors and or self expressions. (Only god can judge us, no one on earth has the right to bare false prophecy or false judgement upon our peoples and especially in a networking community.)

This is why we all must decide for ourselves to take a more realistic approach to things today, as a networking community, as individuals who care or care not for others. The other dynamic factor involved is that many people across this globe, are also unstable for the most part both mentally, physically and emotionally due to countless reasons. (So please be careful what kind of messages we are to choose to put out to all others online, and definitely while networking professionally.)

It's a lonely road to walk, so do whats right!


How does one do what's right?

Doing the right thing means to evaluate our own issues at bay and in our lives. Take the right steps to cure our physical ailments if any, and to help our family to become much more stronger so that we can potentially help others in lets say our neighborhoods, and even further outwards.

Humanity has some serious issues to handle for sure, and its going to take a deep inward look, and insight into what is the culprit that makes a person go the wrong way entirely (Inherent evils even exist in the kindest of individuals, reading between the lines on all things being rendered or delivered digitally and on all surfaces is a must).

There's many real true to life issues that are to arise on a moments notice, there's jealousy, envy, self loathing, loneliness issues, persecution, hatred, oppression, and the list goes on and on. While networking with others today we should also be mindful of these true realities at large, because we cannot see what each person is going through just looking at the computer screens. (Like a hurricane, tornado, earthquake, family crisis etc...)

It all definitely needs to be assessed entirely, and may sometimes take a psychologist to do, because the side effects of people harboring such feelings and not dealing with them appropriately then may lead to behaviors off and online that are totally uncontrollable.

      Hello @sholland10, I feel what your saying with the networking thing and also the family thing as well.

      My family raised me traditionally and with the old school ways of strict behaviors, and being respectful to all others, and so yes indeed I know what you mean. I also make sure to difuse from any negativity, and been trying to remain focused on the prize by avoiding it all completely.

      Thanks Susan for the cool comment and for sharing your thoughts about this issue we all are indeed facing today online.

      Hi Michael! As I read this, I thought of my big family (my mother was the first of 7 and I was the last of her 8). There were good times and bad, but we each knew the essence of the others. In networking, we have to draw from what we see. I tend to be the "glass half full" person because I was raised to look for the positive. We must be ourselves and accept those we choose to be in our networks. It is all encompassing. I do try to stay away from the drama, though. It is just too draining on the soul.

      A great message! One that needs to be out there in this day and age.

      @always exploring, yes indeed Ruby I dug deep for this one and thanks to the words of my good friend Bill Holland, I was inspired to write it. Thanks for giving my hub here some much needed love. Have a wonderful day.

      Lol, brother according to Acts 17, God calls you a person of noble character because you choose to do the studying yourself and not just take at face value what you hear others say. It's refreshing really. God bless and you have an awesome day!

      @Kasman, thanks for reaffirming to me such a position you stand firmly on, and as to caring for those who act in opposition to you or to that of your way of life.

      Yes indeed I shall someday read that part and chapter of the bible, I'm more of a spiritualist type of person who believes in God, but I don't follow any documented way or formal belief per say of him.

      However, I do know what doesn't feel right to my senses and what does thus the way I can detect when someone isn't being true or they are (many folks were trained in false ways so it may not be their faults, so again I agree with your premise and position), and I go by that pretty much today, but I will surely in due time get into reading the bible to discover much of its truth for sure.

      Absolutely Mike, there's a point I definitely reach when I think it's healthy to cast off people who are divisive and want nothing more than to make life miserable for everyone. For me, it's usually after many offenses...I can still keep forgiving but at some point, you have to let them live their lives and you live yours....if they just choose not to walk with me but against me....then I have to make that hard decision. That's actually in the word too, but in a slightly different's in the book of Titus. God will love them no matter what.

      Thanks @Kasman, yes indeed those who fake shall be loved and still need love, but I care not to deal with them much, because they have the tendency to try to destroy everything that us true to life folks attempt to build up.

      So yup I know how you feel in that respect, and Its cool you was able to take from this very article something valuable, even if it is a very simple yet obvious well known thing in all reality.

      I like the fact you mention the Bible and Jesus, because everything has a tendency to repeat itself for sure especially history let alone biblical occurrences, and many things are undeniable when it comes to humanity, existence and that of the universe as a whole.

      I firmly believe that God plays a huge part in it all for sure, and without him, none of us would be here and so I must agree with your thoughts on that entirely. Cool comment bro!

      Hey my fellow Explorer! Great hub. I take a few key things away from this: Don't forget the people who are your friends, and we all need each other. I'm sure there was more to take away, but this is what spoke to me. It reminded me of the Bible in some ways. In the book of Hebrews, the author tells us not to give up "meeting together" as so many have been giving up. All throughout the Bible it speaks of Unity being numero Uno. Jesus said it about himself and the people who loved him. About bringing others in unity with you.

      I love the not being fake details. I'm tired of fake people, but you've still got to love them where they are. Great hub brother and voted up!

      Your very much welcome Bill, I try my best to take time while delivering certain messages to folks here online, because I do know the issues that are truly a major game changer for us all as a social community and as a world community as well.

      How we choose to configure and craft or creative forms of self expression will also determine how such an effective response we shall get from those who deem it necessary to respond.

      I myself never want to be falsely perceived, and so I speak what I feel from the core of my existence on this earth. I think this is where many others may hopefully learn something from, I cannot do much more besides be me, and that's also what my mommy dearest taught me to do.

      She told me that I would fail in life by trying to be someone other then myself, and I discovered that the hard way once, and will never ever return to such a decrepit condition of the mind, body and soul.

      Thanks for choosing to read this very hub, it was you who inspired me to write it, thus the reason why I was able to churn it out so swiftly. You are a good man Bill, you mean well, and it stirs me up to do much of the same bro. For you are a true to life inspiration to us all!

      So thanks for being who you are Bill a true person who knows how to motivate and inspire other like minds. I know your a cool dude as we have been good friends, we network positively fair with others and with each other, and its what matters for sure here today and on the world wide web.

      Your budd Mike,

      I don't know how you write a quality hub so quickly. Within four hours of my hub appearing you have a related hub posted. That is impressive, buddy...and this is a quality hub.

      Networking....I guess I do it, although most of my work on Facebook is about getting to know people and sharing experiences and thoughts. I call it my low key networking system. LOL I don't even know if it works regarding my writing...certainly not in earnings...but man oh man, I have some great friends.

      Thanks for this Mike! Love the message!
