The Post Social Media Age…

IMG_4414

We are now connected with everyone.  Everyone is Friends…

Our photos, videos, most inner personal thoughts and desires we have are part of the digital flow…

Our text messages, cellular positions, automotive positions, our bio vitals close to being tracked in real time…

The frequency of our actions are all measured.  The parallel and serial action’s analyzed without issue.

So when you are on the phone, in the car, texting your Friends, your footprint is large, your actions clear and predictive measures will begin to start being seen as natural…

Your photos, any of them, snap chats, instagram, FB, Flickr, your vaulted locked photos, all are to be seen…

Your videos, the ones uploaded but deleted, the ones “never seen by anyone” all digitally filed away.

Your notes in google docs, your taxes, affairs are all in order in the digital age…

The idea of a panoptic digital arena has become so fluid that there is no need for someone to feel watched, we have accepted it.

It is the price of convenience…  Of instant gratification…

Our musings will be analyzed for anything and everything, whether it is to determine if you are a terrorist, sociopath, bipolar, in good standing with your credit, a worthy mate, a worthy human…

The metrics, number crunching, biofeedback is all there…  It is being used, cross referenced, analyzed and used as a model to create social, political and cultural norms…
