What is this life if full of care
We have no time to stand and stare?
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep, or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this, if full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
These beautiful lines by William Henry Davies describe the kind of life we lead in the 21st century. A century where people are have no time to say a 'Hi', where we do not know who our neighbour is. This is the century where we have made remarkable progress in the field of science and technology but have equally regressed in the field of culture and community.
We are living in a world where a broken iphone is more sorrowful than a broken heart, where having fun is limited to television and video games and in a world where our endless wants only lead to disappointment.
Humans are social animals. We communicate and interact with each other and share experiences to build a bonding with the society. And time being scarce, we've forgotten about the way socializing was back in the old days. But thanks to technology, we've been able to take this entire experience online.
A few years ago it was only possible to keep in touch with family, friends and colleagues by phone, text messages or email. Now you can update your profile on these social networks and every one knows what you are doing. Simple and quick!
From the business point of view, the use of social networking sites for personal and business use is underestimated by many online business owners. Using social networking strategies for marketing a product or service online is very effective because you can scout out target markets and potential customers with just a few clicks.
Social networking is the buzz that communities like Okrut, Facebook and Myspace created. Today we can connect with our friends and family even from thousands of miles away thanks to these wonderful social networks. Sharing the most memorable moments of your life through media has become a child's play. Increasingly, people are joining these networks to virtually engage in social activities and continue holding the banner of being a part of the society.
One of the most amazing social networking site that has been created recently is Buddy Puff. It can well be compared to the likes of the biggies like Facebook and Myspace. It has created a fusion of social networking + blogging + media sharing + music sharing to create a one of a kind social networking community. The sheer simple yet sophisticated interface is promising and extremely easy to use. I highly recommend Buddy Puff as it stands out from the usual social networking sites like Facebook and others.
