BONUS POST-MISCOMMUNICATION-PERCEPTION-YOUR OPINION

online-social-networking2

I hate texting and even emailing, I prefer speak one on one on the phone (although phone ah prison people nowadays), or in person. What is on this video is the truth, all and everything is a matter of perception. Which makes “perception”, a really big deal! Am I correct?

These miscommunications happens often, My friend sent this email to me yesterday, and in our conversation we spoke about these nowadays modern communication and how through using them conversations can often get misconstrued.

I agree with my friend when he said that “the new way we communicate, especially with social networking does not encourage real socialization”. It (conversations) are often stoic, and emoticons are used to display human emotions, can you dig it? The human relationship is now an app! How now brown cow!..who remembers how to speak. Others may disagree, but this is the way I see it.

Social media seems to be taking over, through whatever mediums used by almost everyone, whether it be facebook, instagram, whatsapp, or whatever. These mediums it seems creates more disturbance in the lives of those who uses them while making communication easier and better, but at what cost? Instead of pushing us forward, I believe, it has set us back, how many steps back< I do not know?….but it has…my belief!

I have felt insulted already because of a mis read text, and when I called and spoke to the person, it cleared itself and I sighed in relief. I am not ‘Old Fashion”, I ain’t Old anything, but is not every pan ah knock mi waan guh dung deh guh sing! In other words, I am not easy to run with or move with the crowd, to something new, Wisdom!

Therefore I hate texting and worse emailing, but times has forced us to conform. I will not digress and go in the whole “Big brother is watching”, conversation, but watch this video, have a laugh and maybe we can all talk later

Okay,I watch that video that video is funny !! I see how social media can be confusing but it’s funny though I was cracking up watching that video…
That why sometime I prefer talking on the phone because texting back and forth sometime the person on the other side can take the message wrong.

I’ve miss read texts before…and when I do I’ll be quick to dial and ask “what was that?”

Can you provide them with better fence . stop the politics here can be annoying and convenient. It’s convenient when your not sure if the person is able to take calls (my babe during unscheduled meetings) and annoying when persons want to chat for long, and in paragraphs.

Good night Ladies and peepers. I swear with this female…I never in my wildest see her transformation coming…then who did? lol

Sorry, but labels are just hard to get away from because it is a description of a person, even if it’s true or false. She’s pretty, gay wealthy and an american television icon…Labels in truth.

So true Cami…like Al Sharpton says if she a movie role ad and it says African American actress needed, she going to apply…smh

lol, she over-killed on the ethnicity part. I am in agreement about her not wanting to be labeled an African American. I’m more geared towards Black American (said it here a few times ).

Your last paragraph says it all. Nuff time ppl use texting as sykes too. Dem shame yuh and then put ‘lol’. I, too, prefer to hear the tone of voice, it tells me a whole lot.

Besides, as someone said in the video cocomments, I prefer to talk for 5 mins, that to be checking my phone for messages every 5 seconds, for the next 1/2 hour.

on the flip side tho, you can always go back and reread your messages. an like how fimi head nuh too good, mi easy fi figget
