If you are perfectly content with your current social life, then do not bother wasting your time reading on, as the following does not apply to you.
Now for the rest of you, there may be some out there saying:
Get off Facebook… INSANITY!
Hang on Cowboy that was just a headline to get your attention.
Now let’s break down a rough approximation of your current situation:
- You are not one of the cool kids
- You either don’t care about what is trending, or if you do care, nobody else cares that you do
- You want to find interesting stuff on the web
Back in the day when Facebook and Twitter were a lot smaller and not every 16 year old girl spent 8+ hours a day posting every thought that runs through her brain, and not every socialite wannabee spends half their lives hoarding up followers and friends, Facebook and Twitter were fine places to go to share and discover funny pictures, news, interesting youtube videos, opinions, and anything else that is worth looking at on the web. Sadly, those days are over and both these sites have degraded into a ‘look at me’ spamfest. If you are one of the ‘cool kids’ and people will look at you, then Facebook and Twitter are probably the greatest self-propagation tools ever invented.
To demonstrate this relationship between your personal popularity and how much you can benefit from using social media I have included this visual aid.
As you can see, some people greatly benefit from using social media all the time. If you are one of the cool kids, or a wish you were wannabee, social media is definitely for you. However, if you don’t fit into one of these two categories, you should probably consider some other options as to how you can best spend your time on the internet.
Now let me be out front about your options here, there are plenty of great websites for socially disenfranchised individuals (Reddit, 4Chan, 9gag, etc…), but maybe you don’t exactly fit into any of these rather exclusive communities, and maybe you aren’t particularly interested in posting your own content as much as you are finding someone else’s content.
Well, then FuturEchoes is for you. Even if your looks and personality are uglier than Pizza the Hutt you are more than welcome here, and you will be considered equal to even our richest and most beautiful users. But the real benefit besides a judgement-less platform is that you won’t have to sift through all that look-at-me spam that is all over the any social media feed. We’ve got content, just content and it’s the best content on the web. To demonstrate the relationship between your personal popularity and how much you can benefit from FuturEchoes I have included another visual aid.
It’s your time, and whenever you open up your browser, you are making the decision, maybe next time you spend an hour on Twitter just to see Mr. Popular with 100,000 followers soak in the shine, you should ask yourself: Is this worth it?
