La Socialización Moderna y la Tecnología! Parte#1

Leave a comment

¿Qué hay de malo con la socialización digital de hoy? ¿Qué pasó con la interacción social humana? Como profesional en redes de Internet, seguridad en línea y como padre, puedo decir ahora que las redes sociales no pueden sustituir nunca la única forma de socializarse de persona a persona, esa interacción humana es tan básica como esencial.

Después de escuchar que Google está planeando el lanzamiento de G + a nivel mundial, yo me pregunto ¿no tenemos suficientes medios sociales ya para compartir en línea? ¿No deberíamos volver a socializarnos mejor de persona a persona? ¿No es la interacción social humana mejor, real y más saludable?

Estas son algunas de las preguntas en la mente de muchos padres y profesionales en este medio tecnológico hoy día! Hay muchas preocupaciones en relación con la socialización en línea, el intercambio de información y la seguridad de los usuarios al navegar por el Internet (WWW).

Aunque estoy de acuerdo que, por supuesto, debemos mantener un equilibrio y hacer las dos cosas, queremos realmente nunca más volver a un mundo sin socializarnos en línea? Un mundo en el que, en su mayor parte, se limita la interacción con las únicas personas que vivían en la misma región geográfica que tu.

En un mundo en constante cambio la gente no piensa ni toma en cuenta los peligros que existen detrás de las pantallas, y redes por todo el mundo. Los padres y los hijos comparten información que no se dan cuenta se puede utilizar contra ellos de una manera u otra.

Por esta razón, les digo a los padres que si ellos permiten que sus hijos tomen tiempo en línea en Facebook u otra red social existente, deben controlar y estar atentos a la información que se comparte y con quién, esto es crucial para evitar futuros problemas, dolores de cabeza o una posible tragedia. Un ejemplo de esto es el ROBO DE IDENTIDAD.

No todas las personas utilizan estas redes sociales para hacer daño o cometer un delito, pero la realidad es que hay mucha gente mala en los medios sociales en línea que utilizan la información que publicas o compartes para averiguar donde vives, tu nombre, tus hábitos, la escuela a la que asistes, o los lugares que visitas para su propio beneficio, hacer el mal y cometer crímenes.

Por estas razones, debemos asegurarnos de que nuestros hijos están seguros cuando navegan el Internet y ser cautos con lo que se escribe, dice y comparte en línea. Lo que se hace y publicas en el Internet se queda en ese medio público mundial, piensa en eso. Nuestro mundo, y aún más importante, el mundo de nuestros jóvenes, se ha abierto completamente a la era celular con las comunicaciones avanzadas en todo el mundo hoy en día.

Nos encontramos y conocemos a gente de todas partes del mundo en un clic a través de redes sociales, cable inalámbrico y comunidades virtuales. Nos relacionamos con personas de diferentes edades, nacionalidades, razas, religiones y áreas geográficas en las formas que nunca iba a suceder o ser posible en la vida real antes.

En un mundo nuevo y completo en línea con redes virtuales donde la nube tecnológica esta en cualquier lugar sin importar distancias permite y facilita muchas cosas diferentes que eran imposible e impensables antes, pero ahora están a nuestro alcance a una velocidad increíble, con la movilidad y el poder de la Internet, “los padres deben tomar las precauciones necesarias”.

La tecnología no es mala, el problema es el mal uso que se le da, además la mala intención de aquellos que se aprovechan de ella para cometer delitos. A menudo hay oportunidades para establecer contactos o casos para compartir y conocer a tus amigos en línea en persona, pero para que esto suceda tú debes de asegurarte que estás cómodo con la idea y con la persona que vas a conocer. Asegúrate de que él /ella es lo que dicen, ser.

En mi caso, he asistido a muchas reuniones y conferencias en línea con gente de Nueva York, Argentina, Costa Rica, India y Nueva Jersey donde vivo. Para algunas de estas reuniones he viajado largas distancias para asistir. Con el uso correcto de la tecnología, la verdad es que no tengo que salir de la oficina o el hogar para estar presente en una reunión.

Este conducto me permitió la oportunidad de reunirme con mis amigos y socios de negocios en línea por el mundo sin limitaciones de distancia y en tiempo real, muchos de los cuales probablemente nunca habrían sido amigos o posible para compartir sin el poder del Internet y las redes sociales mundiales.

Por este motivo creo las redes sociales son una excelente herramienta y medio ventajoso, pero si se utiliza para fines equivocados o motivos que podrían satisfacer a la gente equivocada, ahí es donde se complica y empiezan todos los problemas.

Hoy en día vivimos en diferentes tiempos, los tiempos de los medios y redes digitales, incluso yo entiendo que tenemos que aceptar la socialización en línea como una nueva forma de compartir, una herramienta para hacer negocios, y llegar a las redes de amigos y familiares que están lejos de nosotros.

En este nuevo mundo, nos guste o no, la mayoría de nuestras transacciones diarias se llevan a cabo en línea, y si usted no se mejora y se pone al día, se puede quedar atrás y ser considerado como una persona digital iliteral, si no lo eres ya. Los adolescentes pasan mucho tiempo en las redes sociales y juegos de vídeo en línea, aún se socializan algo en la vida cotidiana real, pero parece que la interacción social es cada vez menos.

Cuando yo era joven tenía un montón de posibilidades de socializarme con una persona u otra. Considero que esas fueron buenas experiencias de aprendizaje y formación como también sentimientos increíbles, alegrías tremendas en mi vida, que se dieron lugar antes del auge y era de las redes sociales de hoy. Es responsabilidad de los padres proteger a sus hijos, pasar tiempo de calidad con ellos, compartir y disfrutar de cada momento es crucial para una vida más sana en su desarrollo cotidiano.

¿Quién no recuerda jugando al fútbol con amigos, jugar al escondite con los miembros de la familia, ir en un viaje de vacaciones con amigos de la escuela con toneladas de diversión y disfrutar del vivir y la vida; algo que me parece los padres deben decirles a sus hijos que hagan más a menudo, además de participar de la experiencia para hacerla más agradable y beneficiosa. Tal vez la gente que no tiene experiencia con las redes sociales van a tener un tiempo difícil y viven problemas en un mundo conectado, o tal vez no.

 

¿Cree usted que la tecnología específica de mensajes de texto hace a la gente más social?

Una teoría que supone la introducción de sistemas de mensajería de texto en la sociedad como una forma de socialización tiende a separar a personas y los hacen más distantes, eliminando la sensación de interacción y de la personalidad en lugar de permitir que las personas interactúen sin repercusiones de la experiencia de conversación estándar normal.

Hoy en día con las nuevas tecnologías y los nuevos teléfonos con nuevas cámaras de alta definición, los niños tienden a enviar textos, tomar fotos y vídeo en tiempo real y compartirla a través de una conexión de la línea no segura, donde puede ser fácilmente interceptado por las personas equivocadas.

 

Los niños usan la tecnología en gran escala en el esquema que asumen y dan por seguro las redes LAN, los satélites y las conexiones inalámbricas, sólo para tener una presencia en línea que está dando forma a su modo de vida y la socialización de hoy, algo que les digo hay que mantener un ojo de águila para el bien de la familia y sus hijos.

Yo les digo y aconsejo a los padres, que deben seguir velando lo que hacen y comparten sus hijos en los medios y la forma en que ellos están usando la tecnología, nos guste o no, debe participar y aceptar en cambio y los avances del momento. De esta manera usted será capaz de controlar ayudar y proteger mejor a sus hijos, además también puede ayudar a los niños a aprender a tomar decisiones mejores y más inteligentes, además de gestionar la sobrecarga de posibles amenazas con éxito.

Hoy más que nunca, los padres deben entender los peligros y desafíos que nuestros hijos enfrentan en línea y buscar la ayuda necesaria, poner los pies en la tierra, trazar estrategias para abordar los problemas específicos que enfrentan nuestros niños que están rodeados de opciones infinitas — y muy pocos límites en la Internet.

Modern Socialization & Technology Part#1

Leave a comment

What is so wrong with digital socializing today? What happened to the human social interaction? As a professional on web networks, online security and as a parent, I can tell you right now that Social networks Can’t Replace Socializing and the unique person to person human interaction that is so essential.

After hearing that Google is planning to lunch G+ globally, I ask myself don’t we have enough online sharing? Shouldn’t we go back to socializing in person? Isn’t the human social interaction better, real and healthier? These are some of the questions on the minds of many parents and professionals today!

There are many concerns regarding online socializing, sharing and the safety and security of the users while navigating the world wide web. While I agree that, of course, we should keep a balance and do both, would we really ever want to go back to a world without online socializing? A world in which we, for the most part, were limited to interacting with only people that lived in the same small geographical region that we did.

In a world of constant change people do not think or take in consideration the dangers that exist behind the screens and wires across the globe. Parents and children post and share information that they do not realize can be used against them in one way or the other. For this reason, I tell parents that if they allow their children online time on Facebook or another social network out there, to control and be vigilant of what information is shared and with whom, this is crucial to avoid future problems, headaches or a possible tragedy.

An example of this is IDENTITY THEFT. NOT everyone uses these social networks to do harm or commit a crime but the reality is that there are many bad people in the online social networks that use the information you post or share to find out where you live, your name, your habits, the school you go to, or places you visit to their own advantage and wrong doing; for these reason we must make sure our children are safe online.

Our world, and even more importantly, the world of our youth, has completely opened up with the cellular era with advanced communications worldwide today. We meet and get to know people from all parts of the world in a click via wire & wireless networks and communities. We interact with people from different age groups, nationalities, races, religions and geographic areas in ways that would never happen or be possible in real life.

In a new online world full with virtual networks and clouds anywhere and everywhere that permit technology to facilitate so many different things that were unthinkable before but now are at your finger tips with incredible speed, mobility and the power of the Internet, “parents must take the necessary precautions”. Technology is not bad it all, the problem is the wrong use and bad intentions of those that take advantage of it to commit crimes.

There are often networking opportunities or instances to meet your online friends in person, but for this to happen you must make sure you are comfortable with the idea and that the person you are going to meet. Make sure he/she is what they say, they are.

In my case, I’ve attended many online meetings and conferences with people from New York, Argentina, Costa Rica, India and New Jersey where I live. For some of these meetings I’ve traveled long distances to attend. With the correct use of technology, I really do not have to leave the office or home to be present in a meeting any more regardless the distance.

This conduit had permitted me a chance to meet my online friends and business partners without distance limitations and on real-time, many of which I probably never would have been friends or possible to meet with without the power of Internet and social networking.

For this aspect I feel social networking is an excellent tool and very advantageous medium; but if used for the wrong purposes or reasons you could meet the wrong people, and that is where it gets complicated and all the problems begin.

Today we live in different times, the times of digital media; even when I understand we need to embrace socializing online as a new way to share, a tool to do business, and reach networks of friends and family far away across the world; in this new world and like it or not, most of our daily transactions are going to be conducted online in the future, and if you do not upgrade yourself, you could be left behind and considered as an iliteral digital person, if you aren’t already.

Teens spend much time on social networks and video games online; they still socialize in real life everyday but it seems the social interaction is less and less.

When I was a younger boy, I had plenty chances to socializing person to person. I regard those learning experiences as amazing feelings, tremendous joy, which took place before the boom and era of social media networks of today. It is the parent’s responsibility to protect their children, to spending quality time with them, to share and enjoy every moment is crucial for healthier living.

Who don’t remember playing soccer with friends, playing hide and seek with family members, going on a vacation trip with school buddies having tons of fun and enjoying life and living; something I feel parents should tell their children to do more often, besides engaging the experience to make it more enjoyable and beneficial. Maybe it is the people that don’t have experience using social networks that are going to have a hard time and trouble living in a connected world or maybe not.

Do you think that certain technology specifically text messaging make people more social?

A theory assumed is that the insertion of text messaging systems into society as a form of socializing tends to separate people and make them more distant by removing the sense of interaction and personality and instead allow people to interact without repercussions of the standard conversational experience.

Today with new technology and newer phones with new HD cameras, kids tend to text, take pictures and video on the fly and share it over an unsecured line connection where it can be easily intercepted by the wrong people. Kids use technology in a large scale where they assume and take for granted LAN networks, satellites, and wireless connections, just to have an online presence that is shaping their way of living and socializing today; something I tell you to keep an eagle eye for the good of the family and your child.

I say to parents, you must continue to monitor the means and how your children are using technology; like it or not, you must engage and embrace it. This way you will be able to better control, assist and protect your children; besides you can also help the children learn to make better and intelligent choices, decisions and manage the potential overload or threats successfully.

Today more than ever, parents must understand the dangers and challenges our kids face online, and find the help to make down- to-earth strategies to address the unique issues faced by our children who are surrounded by infinite choices — and very few limits on the World Wide Web.

9-11 Ten Years Later, When Crimes Against Hmanity & Democracy Succeed!

Leave a comment

Still fresh in my mind is the morning of September 11; when I saw the news I could not believe what was happening at that moment, I thought for a minute another Hollywood action movie, but the reality was a truly unimaginable tragic and horrible crime in the making against humanity, liberty and democracy took place.

Much had been said and done since that day, including the war against terrorism was declared, but the sadden truth is that we all lost something precious on 9-11, “our freedom and tranquility”. Deep inside the lost of so many innocent human lives still hurts.  We demanded a clear and satisfying answer. People thought this answer will come when the criminals were brought to justice.

Ten years later and with millions of dollars spent to catch and murder “Osama Bin Laden” the terrorist and public enemy number one of USA, still many people feel afraid and unsafe from terrorist acts. Many citizens also feel that the intellectual criminal minds behind this tragic crime are still at large and manipulating and covering the media and events that happened on that horrific day.

I feel many things are very shady regarding 9-11. I cannot avoid the question rising in my mind “What is the USA government hiding and covering and why? I cannot express my amazement that why the truth has not already been publicly revealed to the American people and the world.

Our government must admit their inefficiency to protect the American public and the proper way to apply and uphold the law and justice. How could these terrorist in the watch list enter the USA undetected; but ICE worries and waste millions of dollars and resources about the illegal Latinos working hard and producing to better our economy, their lives and a brighter future for their families. (I find this “incredible”), I feel they always look in the wrong direction and spots.

Yes, these people have also broken the law but for most part none of them have killed anyone, yet they pay taxes to the IRS even under their illegal condition. These are the type of hardworking people the USA needs to straighten the fragile economy. I feel the Department of Home Land security should put in-line their priorities and intelligently have better use of their resources and tax money of the American people.

Today, after watching many videos, clips and documentals of the horrible events that happened on 9-11, I cannot stop wondering and questioning who helped the terrorist tailor the perfect demolition crime and catastrophe. A crime of such magnitude could not have happened by the terrorist acting alone, it feels like there is still a loose end. Even with the death of Osama Bin Laden, 9-11 feels and seems like unfinished business.

How could they have large amounts of money in USA bank accounts with having the proper authorities wonder or investigate where the money came from? How could they take flying classes where their interest was taking off and landing of a large aircraft? Why the USA government knowingly withheld intelligence about two of the 9/11 hijackers?

Why did the government hesitated to detain and question the Bin Laden family and allowed them to fly out in a private jet to Saudi-Arabia when the entire USA air-space was closed to civil aviation, not even ex-president George Bush the father was allowed to flight to Washington that day; but yet the Bin Laden’s were granted permission and an military escort back home!…

Many of these questions and much more make me wonder about the 9-11 crime, truths and what our government has been covering and why; in God we trust and the truth revealed shall set us FREE. Those who have gained control of a state in an ostensible democracy have many means not only for orchestrating major crimes, but also for preventing those crimes (including their crimes against democracy itself) from being publicized, that is a terrible reality and sad truth.

It is unacceptable that after ten years the USA “Congress will never mount a real 9/11 investigation”. Only the citizens of the world continue questioning this crime and demand clear verifiable truthful answers that could get a real investigation to lead to prosecutions.

Regardless the time that may take to reveal the names of all criminals that participated in crafting the 911 crimes and catastrophe against humanity and democracy, I assure you the time will come, because you can run but you cannot hide, remember that the truths will always catch up to the lies, it is just a matter of time.

In my personal opinion, the establishment of media and communications just keep getting worse, because permits corruption and manipulation. They’re further and further from good, tough investigative journalism, and more prone to be pawns in complicated shady politics with a dirty and declining economy, a broken justice system and process, and a divided society that permits almost without questionable doubt the dangerous games that affect the public interest in untold ways.

Freedom of expression shall prevail and the truths shall be reveled sooner or later; the criminals will be brought to justice and they will pay for their crimes against humanity and democracy… After ten years later, we still remember and will never forget until justice is served accordingly.

“The Fat Boy Chronicles” a reality kids & teens live today….

2 Comments

I was extremely impressed by “The Fat Boy Chronicles” book. It’s impacting and exciting from start to finish. An amazing, moving story, it’s beautiful to read and I can’t wait to watch the movie. This book and movie will accomplish what so few do these days and it could be regarded as a superb venue in which to review the bullying and obesity issues many students face in schools across America.

Lang Buchanan reveals in the book and film an emotionally and painful story many obese teenagers experience in our society; something so difficult and hurtful that many choose to ignore and not to face. I feel this book and film will be regarded by many as another milestone in the history and art of movie-making, a big eye opening and wake up call to parents, students and educators.

The level of realism achieved is remarkable; it retains its excitement and holds the audience’s attention to the end. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the movie will not be the exception; I’m certain it will be meaningful, interesting and very remarkable. We all can learn much from The Fat Boy Chronicles. The entertainment and action values on screen will be phenomenal but the human element that dominated the story will be equally superb.

It’s worth the wait–this spectacular blockbuster shows just how good the writers, cast and director truly are. In my humble opinion, the social achievements of this book and film will earn it a very special place in the history of movie making, in our society and hearts. A must read-A must see! It is cool to see a movie where you feel you got more than your money’s worth.

A true test to diversity acceptance, tolerance and “Do not to do to others what others may do to you”!!! Something many simply choose to ignore but should not. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Give this book a read and/or share it with friends and family; “Make a difference, Make a change, and Make someone’s day…Change Your Child’s Future”!!! “Let’s give them something to RAVE About…!!!!

Sometimes, what can’t be seen or heard…is reason enough. A Mother’s love can drive a VERY dangerous thing.
