Exhibitionist

Exhibitionist

I wonder what it is about social media that brings out the exhibitionist in some people. It can really become cringe worthy after awhile. So here is my rant about how much is too much to post.

Profile pictures seem to be just everything. I saw one with two men’s bare rear ends on a woman’s profile. Another had a BDSM picture of a woman. Now these profile pictures can be seen by anyone on the internet. They don’t last very long as they are sometimes so offensive they get reported and taken down like these two were. No one cares about your freaky sex life except for your significant other and maybe a couple hundred of your social media friends. Please share it with them not the rest of us. I have seen naked men’s butts they are hairy and do not make good profile pictures.

There seems to be a lack of a filter of common sense with some of the stuff that is posted. Personal stuff about relations, affairs, sexual proclivities. All on a public profile. People there is a little button you can click to make these things to your friends only. One assumes your friends are into the same sort of fun. That is fine I like a bit of spice as well as another person I just would choose not to share it with the world. If you are being cheated on dump them or keep them it is up to you but don’t discuss it with the rest of us. Honestly it is your PERSONAL problem. Think they cheated with someone else. Deal with them don’t drag out your ridiculous drama all over for others to see. Besides nobody can take someone else unless they want to go WAKE UP!

Some also put every picture they can post publicly of their children. Pedophiles are rampant on the internet. Why you would put those pictures for every stranger on social media is totally beyond me. Again try that little button. Share your wonderful kids, pets etc. with your friends people that you supposedly have some idea who they are. Also bear in mind that your pictures can be copied and used in places you probably don’t want them to be. You don’t want to see that wonderful picture of your children on some pedophile site.

Another older lady put where her city was and posted a huge diamond ring to brag to the world about her station in life. No doubt her name and address is in the local phone book. I only hope she has an alarm system in her house. She is going to need it. People put all kinds of personal information on their profiles including where they work and live. Social media is a stalkers paradise. Don’t feed them the information to stalk you unless you really need friends that badly.

Recently the US military informed their members that ISIS is stalking social media to find military members to attack. Don’t put your unit and pictures in uniform on your page. We know you are proud to be US military. We are proud of you too but want you to remain safe so use a filter. Make your profile as private as possible.

The rest of us also don’t want to know every detail about your personal life. Share your medical problems with your friends and family or don’t that is even better. People tire of that after awhile as they do all the poor me posts you put on your social media. The bottom line is use some common sense. There are almost a billion people on Facebook alone. Do you really want everyone of them to know your business???

    Really for for thought sugar. Some people really dont realise exactly how wicked some people on social media sites can be. I myself have had my personal details posted on a person site, after they obtained knowledge of my details from a source which they should not have been able to access Not nice at all. Please be careful and stay safe.

      That is really sad bad enough when they post their own stuff.

    I try not to be judgmental regarding others’ parenting because I’ve never had children myself, but I get a tad bit icky when I notice that some people only post pictures of their children as profile pics. Or, every picture posted on all their social media profiles is of their children doing some innocent activity. It’s cute, but is it wrong that I automatically think of what horrors come out of copy, paste, Photoshop, and pedophiliac blogs?

    I watch too many talk shows.

      I don’t think you have. It is a,fact of life and just dumb in my opinion making it public.

        Yes. And maybe a form of child worship in some instances.

        Either way it is scary. They had a story on the news the other night about people that steal other peoples pictures of their children then pretend they are theirs. A lot of really weird folks out there. I don’t even have kids and this scares me.

        Wow. I mean, someone on the website imgur uploaded a confession saying he was a “pedophile in rehabilitation” and that yes, it’s true that people can do some pretty horrid things when you post pictures of children out on the Internet like that. I couldn’t get through the Q&A. Too much.

        Yikes. We know they are out there but to just go out and proclaim it?? The mind is officially completely boggled.

        Yeah, but then again the first time I heard of this thing where people actually copied and pasted children’s pictures for their own personal use was on a talk show where some pedophile in a tie-dyed shirt was talking about his blog, which was pretty much a “How To” guide. I don’t think it was an actor either.
