Hi diary,
Gone are the days when the Yorubas refer to a radio station as a media without feedbacks. Well, my translation might not be perfect but the idea is that you can’t get a feedback from this medium of information. Information are now been received as well as replies from the public through phones. Radio and Television were old medium of passing information. The advent of social media has made information passed easier. Now the broadcasting stations both radio and televisions has social media platforms. The comment sections of these social media is a means of sharing views on a particular subject been posted. It is the feedback section of platforms such as twitter, facebook, instagram and so on.
Millions of stories, pictures and videos are posted on these platforms daily. Comment section is where friends, enemies, followers and so on get to react to whatever that is been posted. To those that surf the web, it’s a place where they are entertained and informed. It is a place where different minds get to show their thoughts. It is a place where people like celebrities also get feedback from their followers. The comment sections also make a post interesting and lively. It is the life of a social media.
One thing I have discovered surfing the web is that the comment section is made of pessimists and the optimists. Just like the world is made of the good and the bad, such is this world too. No matter how positive the post, there will always be a negative comment. If it is a negative post too, there will also be encouragers. If you post a picture of your new car, you will likely see someone saying the car tyres are second hand. Post a picture of burnt house, another will say it is the picture of the day because the owner is an armed robber. From here, I learnt you have to be yourself whatever others say about you. You don’t have to live life based on what people say about you. There are people who have been depressed and hurt by people’s thought. Well it is good to get people talking about you but make sure you don’t fall because of what people say. It is one of the doses of living life well. Remember you only live once. Live it well diary. See you again but don’t forget to drop a comment. We are covered.
