New Internet Order

May 12, 2015 2 comments

All the world’s countries have decided that the Internet itself needs a government. Your country asks you to run for Prime Minister of the ‘Net — do you accept? If so, what will your platform be?

Yo maan, this is my domain
Cause Im the PM of World Wide Web
Welcome to the virtual world
Where power is in terabytes

You are the apple of my eye
my followers on facebook and twitter
You spam my timelines
And post your updates

Information overflows in myspace
So be wary of a lurking threat
Stalkers, spammers and cyberbullies
Are preying on you in cyberspace

Double check your passwords
Secure yourself from hacks
Scan and clean your pc
from viruses and trojans

Shopping is a breeze
With Alibaba and Amazon
Don’t get carried away
Cause you still have to pay

Lets build bridges of trust
Not walls of hatred
As we unite for a common cause
To make the net safe place

Today it is easier to meet your friend online than on the street.  Yes, the social media is taking over our lives.  We have facebook, orkut, twitter, Linkedin,digg, mashable.  Today, everyone from teens, to middle-aged to the old use facebook to keep in touch and play with applications like farmville, cafe world etc. 

Social media use has increased astronomically since this time last year.  According to a recent survey during December 2009, global users spent an average of five hours on social networking sites, up from three hours in December 2008. That’s an 82% increase.

Facebook and orkut are platforms to share pictures, ideas and network.  Facebook has recently setup one of its biggest offices outside the US in Hyderabad in India.

Twitter has the attraction of sharing short tweets/messages limited to 140 characters.  It also help to share pictures, news, music.  Here one can follow celebrities and can also increase once following and networking.  Twitter also helps like-minded people to share stuff through the retweet feature and good ideas can reach a very large audience within seconds.  Today, politicians and celebrities are tweeting and they have thousands of followers/fans. 

Linkedin is another tool for professional networking.  Infact it helps to advertise your cv and also to keep abreast of jobs online and with movements in the workplace.

The social media is also becoming a great advertising tool as you can have a great network by increasing your followers and following the right people.
