Just for a change
My English-speaking buddies sometimes visit my blog and say "What the heck? Its in Portuguese! How can I read it?". So this post is for them, and for my other buddies who like to read other languages once in a while.
I got asked this question:
"Do Twitter, Facebook, and other social networks rot your brain and make you immoral?"
My answer was:
"Dear friends, I have lived in England (born Brazilian), Japan, USA, and now Back In Brazil. The social media also reconnected me with countless lost friends and colleagues, plus, letting me have a "social life", shareing the good wines and food I had the chance to experiment. Not to speak of pictures of places I've been. Life would be very lonely in this planet, that job travels, money takes you to other places, and your loved ones stay behind. It gets worse when you make more friends abroad.
I have a scottish friend living in London, whom I've known since 1975, and we chat on Twitter about his B2B Marketing agency!
Also, I agree with Brian White's opinion that " The hazards of social networking are no different than the past provided us. It's our parents, or our performance as parents that determine how these tools are abused."
Well, that's it. Have a great weekend.
