أحيانا أحس أن التواصل عبر الشبكات الاجتماعية عندنا مفهوم بشكل خاطئ – يعني أنا صدف مرة معاي واحد التقيته بأحد المناسبات الاجتماعية بالكويت و كان يبي يوريني حسابه على الإنستاغرام بس ما شبك معاه الجهاز فطلب مني جهازي الايباد – دخل على حسابه من حسابي الشخصي و أول شي سواه إن خلاني أتابعه غصب – فلو – بعدين دش على صورة صورة يضغط – لايك – بكيفه و قال لي لما رجع جهازي ترى إنتي ألحين متابعتني و حاطة لايك على كل صوري. الموقف الثاني معاي كان مع وحدة بمعرض عندها مستحضرات تجميل – المهم كنت ماسكة موبايلي بورييها الأشياء اللي أبي أسأل عنها فقالت ليش ما تتابعيني على حسابي الشخصي. وقفت على راسي لين شافت إني سويت فلو. اكاونتها حلو مافي شي بس نوعا ما خلت السالفة غصب! شرايكم بالموضوع؟ هل صادفتكم مواقف مشابهه؟
I have been into situations where random people I meet at functions, people I know, even friends asking me to follow them… or “like” their posts! Let me give two situations’ examples…
I am at this dinner thing, a random guy that I just met was talking to me about his work and nature of business! He was trying to show me his Instagram account, but his connection was weak… so he took my iPad and went on to his account from mine. First thing he did was click “Follow”!!!! Then he went scrolling down his posted pictures clicking “Like” on every single picture! I was annoyed and it showed… he was like “By the way, you are following me now and you LIKED all my pictures” – NOT Funny!! Of course I unfollowed him the next day
I was at this event and as I was shopping and browsing through some items, I asked the owners a few questions while holding my mobile and pointing at the cosmetics she had posted on Instagram… she was like I am more active on my personal account posting personal experiences and different looks, and have loads of followers… she stood next to me, shoulder-to-shoulder and asked me to type in her name in the search, then she was like “Yalla, follow me here!” She was being nice about it, and I liked her posts but that was NOT cool!
Forcing someone to “Follow” or “Like” you wont really make them followers/likers! You know? I have more situations to share, but was wondering what you guys think? What kind of similar situations have you encountered???
