Some days ago I read a very amusing article dedicated to Social Media Sins. Indeed, being a great antagonist of Twitterism, Facebookerism & similar Internet activities, I’m glad that more & more people have started pondering on a malicious, poisonous & even dangerous impact of all these wonder cyber places. Social Networks steal the most precious thing we have – our time & our life. They are becoming a true enemy number 1 of any person on Earth. And let common sense save us from them.
So, the article represented Social Networks according to the Mortal Sins. I provide the list for You, My Esteemed Readers & the link to the original (in Italian) below. So, here’s a classification of Social Networks according to 7 mortal sins:
- Lust means Tinder.
- Gluttony means Instagram.
- Greed means LinkedIn.
- Sloth means Netflix.
- Wrath means Twitter.
- Envy means Pinterest.
- Pride means Facebook.
Be very careful with any of networks below, Esteemed Readers. Keep an alarm clock next to your gadget that would remind you of the real time on Earth not to become a Gollum with his Precious! 🙂

Good one, Maria.
Thank you, dear John! I’m glad you’ve appreciated it. 🙂
Wise reminder… ❤ xo
Articolo interessante, di sicuro non si deve abusare dei social network e neanche farsi sottomere
Grazie per il tuo commento saggio, Caro Pupazzovi! E molto prezioso! 🙂
You make some very good points here, Maria. Social media is very addictive.
Thank you, dear Robbie! I’m glad that you all find this post useful. I could compare social media with a wonderland Alice wandered through. She managed to escape. The rest can do it too. 🙂
Ha ha, Maria. That is an excellent analogy.
🙂 And guess who might be a Cheshire Cat! 😉 Thank you!

Grazie per il repost! 🙂
A great post, Maria. I must confess the sin of “Sloth.” I don’t have a TV, and haven’t had one for years. Netflix has provided a way for me to catch up, commercial free, and see documentaries or foreign films I would otherwise not encounter. Queenie enjoys it in the evening, but he prefers shows with music. It can, however, be highly addictive and a waste of time, too…
Thank you, dear Carol! Oh, well! When you have no TV, I guess it’s not a big sin to use Netflix. Besides you control yourself what you watch. I don’t watch TV at all. If I need movies or cartoons I use youtube or other sources too. 🙂 Ha-ha-ha! Budgies are all alike! Gregory liked video too. He enjoyed any elephant shows, Tour de France, operas & musketeers’ movies.
You are right: Social Media might steal us our precious time… and sometimes the way we interact with people we really begin to care a lot about might lead us to an odd way… Maybe we live in different countries and chances are we would never meet. If you make good friendships that could be very damaging… each argument is a battle and probably the friendship could end, simply due to miscommunication and even misunderstandings!. It happened to me… But anyway, tossing aside the personal account, this post is brilliant and very enlightening, dear Maria xx 😀
I’m very happy that it’s useful for you, my dear Aquileana. C’mon real friendship passes any difficulties! Don’y grief for those who have left you. With time you will see that the true value of this connection was insignificant or,maybe, the time of your relationship is over. Be open for new people to enter into your life. Best wishes. Maria 🙂
Thank you for your encouragement and priceless words, dear Maria! xx 🙂 ❤
Always at your service! 🙂
PS. Social Media is a poisonous illusion. I like to compare it with Alice in Wonderland. And I’m convinced that we must always keep it in mind. While blogging is another illusion too, but here you make rules and you create your own Universe, either good or bad. 🙂 Have a nice week-end!
So true…. I guess we need to be aware of Social Media, as it has its pros and cons!. Blogging is a lot more about “us” and many times about Intellectual interests and creativity; a good thing overall— Good points dear Maria… Happy wekeend to you too 🙂
😃…so so true….will remind myself when I’m getting lost in them. Thank you for sharing this post.
Thank you for your comment, dear Aweni.
Social media, the great mirage of our time, it seems to link us , but deprive us of the time for real social interaction. Thanks for the article Maria. 🙂
Any time, dear Mr. Brigido. Thanks for the comment.
