Facebook Users Want To Look Good


A recent study in Britain illustrates that Facebook users are more concerned about their physical appearance in photos and less about their intelligence. This is an issue that I am always talking about on my Facebook status updates and my Tweets on my Twitter account. I am always asking much of the British or Newcastle female gender why they can’t take a photo without showing much of their naked body. Many Facebook or Twitter users I have come across can’t take a photo without showing their legs, chest or stomach.

Many would agree that much of the Facebook and Twitter users in Britain are careless and do whatever they want without any limits, self-respect or personal moral. In the study 56 per cent of the 4,374 people admitted they’re more concerned about their physical appearance in photos on social network and not their intelligence. Those in other European countries and the Middle East indicate in the study that they care more for intelligence and how they are perceived.

It clearly indicates from the study that British people are not concerned about how they are perceived from intelligence but what perception they portray from photos. Many of the users photos do be perceived as being ‘careless’, ‘spoilt’, ‘no morals’ and much more. The issue is that many other countries in Europe and East are improving their intelligence and over-taking Britain as manufacturers, designers, constructers, research and etc.

This recent study is showing us that much of the British people are insecure about themselves and trying to create a mask to hide who we really are through lying to others. The study indicates that only 34 per cent of men in Britain admitted to lying online to cover up their insecurities but 45 per cent of women were doing the same.

The difference is of course very clear and tells us that we do not have much self-respect or morals that we stick to. Many of the women upload photos of them doing some sort of ‘sexy pose’ to seek attention from the men and receive numerous comments and likes. That is a major problem because women are relying on that to be satisfied with their appearance and are attracting the wrong attention at the wrong time from men who perceive them as ‘easy-to-get’.

Women have no one to blame but themselves if they are being treated as a piece of meat or ‘easy-to-get’ by men from the interactions they are receiving. Women create that perception online and then men perceive them as being who they are because of their online lying to cover up the insecurities. Many of the women are having difficulties finding a decent relationship because of how men are treating them at the present. This causes women to not trust any genuine decent men because of bad experience with those who only wanted them for their physical appearance.

The study also found that 89 per cent of users believe that parents should take a bigger hand in this and teach their children better online etiquette. This suggestion does make me laugh because this is not possible in this modern British society with very low standard morals but Britain was not always like this. Back in the day if you have watched any documenteries British men were gentlemen and women were polite and respected their own body.

If today someone who was a man or women who confronted another man or women about being more decent in their appearance then they would be offended and kick-off about it in a violent manner. Many of the places I have seen and been to in the Asian part of the world have some set of morals and self-respect, example in my family we don’t want to be perceived as people with no respect. In Muslim or Pakistani society we have great self-respect and ensure we do nothing to make our family members (e.g. parents) feel/be ashamed in the Asian/Muslim community. If some British people set some for themselves like some of the cultures around the world have then there wouldn’t’ be this problem.

I only hope that this changes because I prefer to be in the company of someone who is concerned about their intelligence and not appearance. Someone who is only concerned about their appearance does not have much to talk about that is interesting except themselves and majority of it can be lies to cover up insecurities. Think about this study and what I have said, visit some of your social networking accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and etc) and have a look at what you see.

You will notice that many of the women young or old take a lot of their photos with their legs exposed with very little shorts/skirts, chest and stomach exposed while doing a ‘sexy pose’ by bending one leg and pushing in the stomach.

This in human nature usually is done to attract men because men are attracted to women showing their sensitive parts and the hour glass figure via the exposed stomach and back. It’s a signal to men that she would be suitable to have children with, human instinct which men have and can’t avoid.

So all I will say is STOP it British women and show off your intelligence and not your insecurities through body exposure. It will only get you the wrong attention and then you will get used for just pleasure by random men until you are a pregnant and unwanted for not having the appearance anymore or the intelligence.

No More Twitter Gallery


I do not understand what has happened to Twitter‘s gallery recently in July 2012. Before when you would visit Recent Images of your own or some other User you had the option to see a Gallery of 100 (Thumbnail) images. Just recently I have noticed that when you hit the Recent Images tab you have to cycle through all the images and do not have the option to see a Gallery of 100 (Thumbnail) images.

I want the gallery feature back on Twitter!

Twitter Should Have Bought Instagram


I was not very happy when Facebook bought Instagram because I wanted Twitter to have made the acquisition. Personally I just feel Twitter would do better a job with Instagram and keep it simple and integrate it into the social network. Facebook does not plan to make any changes to Instagram and make it similar to it’s social network. Facebook has said it wants Instagram remain how it is and not be effected in anyway.

I guess Facebook knows Instagram’s potential and do not want to lose all the users that Instagram has at the moment. Post your opinions on my video on YouTube or on this blog post.

Purpose of Facebook ‘Poke’


Image representing Facebook as depicted in Cru...
By Naveed Ahmed

Many people see this tool called ‘Poke‘ as a method to annoy other people or get their attention but as a marketeer I see something else.

The ‘Poke’ tool if used effectively and consistently can be a method to imprint you into your ‘Friends’ minds. For example if you poke them not every minute but atleast twice a day then you can make sure they remember you as a valued friend from any experience you may have had together offline or online. You as a user ‘Poking’ friends will ensure they remember your face and important facts. No matter where that person goes they will remember you because you keep ‘Poking’ them and appear on their notifications on a computer or handheld device.

I am not saying this technique will work because many users do not poke back or delete that ‘Poke’ to be able to receive anothe poke. This does mean that this technique can work with mutual or close friends who you have had positive experiences with. Even though that user may not remember anything about you from Facebook but they will remember any good time you had together, for example a party, dinner and etc.

This is a good technique to ensure that you are remembered by a friend and not forgotten through a busy life. Good marketing ‘drip campaign’ to advertise yourself for free by ‘Poking’ people. However I do want to state that ‘Poking’ random people may not have a positive effect because they won’t know you personally unless they ‘Add’ you and become online/offline friends.

You may raise awareness of your existence through this but that user you poked may not acknowledge it from the numerous other pokes they have received. This is mainly the case with females because they get a lot of pokes from random men if they have a photo revealing what guys want to see and touch. If you show a Lion some flesh with blood on it then of course his natural instinct will be to eat it and this is the same case when guys see a womens body. Guys just want to get what they see without any thought.
