“I don’t give it a shit”
“Stop reporting non-issues”
These lines sound familiar to people who follow a lot of news stories, tech blogs or analysis aggregations around the web.
Okay. Let me put this straight – if you didn’t care you wouldn’t have landed on the page, you wouldn’t browsed the content neither would you have commented.
Blog fights are not new to the valley, to the alley & to media – & to almost every other industry. Bill Keller’s attack on Huff Post & Arianna Huffington’s response is the latest ‘famous’ addition to the list.
You’d see a lot of comments around the web claiming apathy to the issue, when it’s not the case.
Wouldn’t be a bad time to look at my take on certain differences (from a social media perspective)
So, is it just the people who don’t understand the difference between disinterest & dislike?
No & the biggest example is Facebook – it is just everywhere. Even at places I don’t want it to be at. Of course, there’s an obvious ambition of having the ability to drive the entire web through Facebook and to users benefit – a congregating service for all your web activity and benefit of relevance, recommendation about using a certain service.
But, you wouldn’t want your mom to know everything you see. You wouldn’t want your professional Linkedin contacts to see you approaching their competitors –
Neither would I wanna know what all my Facebook friends are doing on across the web – <Disinteresting>
Partnership like Skype-Facebook or probable alliance Amazon-Facebook would make sense but not much else; definitely not ‘too-much-unwanted-transparency’.
Solution as of now – stop using the social connects until there’s mask-update/hide-update feature and wait for a line to be drawn between transparency & non-privacy.
