Provident Living: Managing media

Managing my media viewing, I am going to discuss a software program that you may not have heard of. It is called Facebook home. It is a smart phone launcher. A default role of this software is to make a rolling feed of the background images for the phone from Facebook. This let me follow entertainers and learn of the world and the musicians that I enjoy. When I first got Facebook home, I saw this opportunity, adding several and all the musicians that I can think of or care about. I followed upward to 100 musicians, and the images of their lives were most easily discoverable. I wanted to learn of their lives, see their personalities, and their professions. I sought for active pages with administrators that portray the lives of the public figures. Many of these imagines are suggestive and few pornographic.
I see that learning of these people creates an artificial relationship of no meaning for the other public figures, distributing my interest in people among hundreds of people that I will never see. These relationships required only a flick of a finger to learn their lives. The forsaking of following these people were easier than it was to find the pages that portrayed the lives of these artist and public figure were. I have unfollowed all the artists and public figures and artist that come on my phone. I further unfollow my friends that like pornographic images, for the images that they click to like are displayed on my phone.
Not following media figures is fruitful in families is good, for it creates a distraction for real family relationships. Discussing Movies, television programs, and talking of musicians and the lives of people in the media numbs the personal fruitful relationships that we can have between each other. I see that people rely of media applications for connection with each other. This reliance make the media application attracting to be accepted among friends and people. I see that taking away these media applications makes relationships more personal. This is important for family relationships to be meaningful.
