Using social media.. a tricky question from a skimmer

These days I have been quite overwhelmed by social media.. I have been having an email ID for over 15 years now, slowly migrated to orkut then replaced it by facebook, followed by Linked In and more recently into Twitter.. more frequent on What's Up...

Well this is a profile of a social media skimmer I guess , just the basics and most trending or may I say outdated social media networks.

Social Media, Digital Marketing are some of the often used catch words in the marketing and brand space these days. So much so that even British tight lipped dictionaries have come to accept them and Like, Follow, Tweet, Googled have all become accepted and correct words in english.

Now that brings up some questions.. how well connected is Social Media ? how many people use it regularly, are truthful about it and have no issues being in the public media.

Recently I saw some statistics which mentioned that only 5% India own cars ? Now  I am yet to believe this stats, considering the amount of traffic, but if that were true, then what could be the extend of social media -  2-3% at the max.. of which you have skimmers like me..and completely hooked technocrats... so what could be the reach of social media ?

Is social media  more about sensationalism, trending, instant access than a long invested relationship building method...

It is indeed fast... and does influence many people who can be called twitteratti.... but in terms of relationship building.. its far out their in the periphery !!! That's the view of a social media skimmer in gist...

Kerala assembly - Failure of Democracy !

As more and more images from the Kerala legislative assembly get streamed across media.. I as a voter from Kerala have to hang my head in shame.. of course the scenes are laughable and can be confused with pictures from a bunch of unruly kids.... wait I apologize.. children are better....animals may be !!!

Are these leaders that have been elected as our representatives... how can they call themselves our representatives... I do not want to be represented by those who hit..abuse and bite... is that what democracy is all about ? those who can hit most considers themselves the winner.. and those who get hit use it as political mileage and self martyrdom ???

Is this sort of anarchy called democracy ? India is largest democracy or largest anarchy ? How else can lack of conflict management and inability to handle a debate called ? are these the values you want your child to adopt ?And then you gloat over these as victory ?

The minimum we the voters need is an apology... for destroying our trust and forsaking your responsibility.....and ofcourse for spoiling public infrastructure...
