Yew Good Morning Alikom!
This is an idea that crossed my mind while I was trying to concentrate on what people call "studies", anyway, I was thinking about the universe and how to protect nature and fish and everything except what I should think about until I came to a conclusion which I know many of you know already but have you ever tries to imagine how it is done? I'm talking about Facebook as a mean of experimenting ways to control society by governments. I know Conspiracy theory, we're not over with it, yet!
Have you noticed how Facebook each year comes with new "options" which are imposed on its users, in the past we had the possibility to hide our so called "walls" so nobody could see what pictures/statues you comment and today it is no more possible to control that. You will tell me you can still control who has access to your pictures and your output yet, it causes me more problems to have to justify to 20 people who don't share my opinion when I comment somebody's status than to share a picture of mine and have 20 likes.
Now let's imagine the Facebook republic, I imagine the Department of Interior, in the Archives centre with registers with citizens' names, birth dates, pictures, best friends, people they love, people they hate, relatives, family, what they do in life, what school they have been to, their phone numbers, their opinions (status; what's on your mind? and a year later Facebook says one year ago you wrote this "....."), religion, what books they like, what music they like, what fashion they like, what football club they like, everything! And we, unconsciously find ourselves giving at least one of these informations to Facebook by a status we share or page we like or a group we join. I always imagine this scene in the future like dystopian films, where we think we're free but we have no where to run to from Big Brother, they have everything about us and "President of the world" (remember el Fhama ) would control every bit of our lives. The flag is blue and white (Mark Zu...etc has a biiiiiiiig and laaaaarge one in his flat, that of Israel not of Facebook), language is English, culture is Meme's Center, political views: Revolution, Black Bloc, Anonymous, Democracy Imposed, national security: OTAN, mission: imposing Democracy
Last time I needed to subscribe to pages which could bring the latest news about what was happening in the country, I started by finding a page made by Nahda fans, as I subscribed to the page a panel appeared below a proposed about ten other pages which all have the same political views (pro Nahda).
Next thing, I typed the name of a Leftist party, I subscribed to the page and all the pages proposed later were laftist although they did not mention that in their titles or their descriptions (neither those of Nahda did). Most titles were like Tunisia news, latest news, avenue Habib Bourguiba, Tunisian Revolution. The only way to see these pages' political views was to read their output. Facebook engines are really intelligent, I guess this is the posthuman era, the machine is no longer a theory, the process of enslaving man and depriving him of his humanity has already started.
And guess what, I tried to create a Google+ account and I didn't want to use my family name and my birth date, the profile was rejected because it did not match the information in their data basis, wallah ila galouha w mahachmouch, so I changed my hotmail name and the work was done!
But I guess you all already know this I just needed to procrastinate!
