Ever wondered why humans are considered social beings? According to Wikipedia,
“Humans are social beings. In comparisons with animalia, humans are regarded like the primates for their social qualities. But beyond any other creature, humans are adept at utilizing systems of communication for self-expression, the exchange of ideas, and organization, and as such have created complex social structures composed of many cooperating and competing groups. Human groups range from families to nations. Social interactions between humans have established an extremely wide variety of values, social norms, and rituals, which together form the basis of human society.”
Let me take you on a journey, In the Bible God is considered as the creator of heavens and earth what we as human beings refer to our world but my point is not about ownership but a few characteristics about the nature of this world and how it transforms and you as a human being has been bestowed with the ability to choose either to transform with it or you perish.
God’s laws are very clear and simple “Follow my ways or burn in hell forever” Anybody who can read this understands what it means. This is one rule that we all follow/not follow in one way or another. You will be surprised to find out that in all your life you have been answering either/or regardless of the laws that we follow. For Instance, we all know it is wrong to over speed but many CHOOSE to over speed any way. You can be educated or not educated and they say you are either smart or a fool. All these are options that human beings encounter in their lifetime.
I like to use this statement ‘social media has become a basic human need’ and since we were created as social beings, thanks to the technological advancement which has facilitated our journey to the modern social media platforms. All I know is that as humans we have reached home but what am not sure of is whether social media is heaven or hell.
I am sure we are home because since we are social being, we are very skilled at utilizing systems of communication for self-expression, the exchange of ideas, and organization, and as such have created complex social structures composed of many cooperating and competing groups. Notice that i have used the same words as the ones underlined on our definition from Wikipedia, but is this not what we do on social media each and every day? The time we have been waiting for is here, the place we have been looking for is social media platforms. We simply cannot live without social media platforms. Its either you are utilizing social media or you will simply perish.
Remember our journey in the Bible? God speaks a clear message that you either follow Him or you will perish. This is the same message i am going to borrow thus, its either you are utilizing social media or you will perish.
In future, when every country will be developed everyone will be online somehow. Today many businesses can give testimony of how social media has helped them achieve growth in so many ways. In fact, every sector of our economies is on social media platforms. One advantage of social media is that it has brought the global village to your smartphones where you can easily interact with anyone from every corner of this planet. Is this not a miracle of the modern day world? This is where the world has transformed itself to and its either we are transforming with it or we perish.
If you are not using social media platforms then you are doomed for failure. The world has created its own “god” which is social media sites to manage and feed our social needs as human beings and it’s our duty to worship social media for deliverance in our modern world. They say the internet never forgets perhaps it’s true just like I don’t know whether God in the Bible will remember all your deeds on judgment day. But just like God, social media sites will judge you on your deeds. If you are a marketer, blogger, pastor, doctor, cab driver or a teacher, one way or another you will have to use social media platforms to offer or receive some form of services based on your own interests.
My appeal to you is if you do not have social media accounts then you might consider opening your accounts in some of the most common social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Whatsapp, Snapchat and many others on the web and could also be different depending on your locations. Whether social media is hell or heaven I don’t know but you have to obey social media platforms for now.
