War against Social Besitas

20 Nov

What it Is:

Let me introduce you to Anti-Social and Freedom, the Social Network and Internet blocking software for your Mac of PC. These programs can help you with creating some online time out. Anti-Social will block all your social media networks, so when you really need some old school ‘alone’ time this program will make sure you won’t get distracted. It’s only possible to use these media again by re-starting your computer again. Freedom is almost the same, only this program (from the same makers) will block all online applications on your computer. Perfect for when you want to focus on studying and don’t want any distractions! There’s only one problem, you still have to make sure that you don’t put your iPhone or iPad next to you because they don’t have an app for iOs, since Apple doesn’t want to corporate. (Why would that be?!)

Why it is Cool:

I think this software is a perfect solution for the big population of people suffering from ‘socialbesitas’. Sometimes it can be really stressful to continually keep up to date with what your friends and family are doing, but also keep your own status up to date and watch how special the lives are of the other people you follow. All these factors are not really contributing to a relaxt working or studying environment. But not only when you don’t want any distraction from work these programs can be perfect for when you want a little offline vacation. Just imagine that time when you didn’t know what this perfect beautiful girl in Hawaii was doing and you had no need to get jealous because you’ve never been there and don’t have a fit bikini body like her. Or just because sometimes it’s really nice to not be up to date via social media, but just by calling your best friend and asking what he or she is doing.

Why it has Future Growth Potential:

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a Anti Social media girl. There are a lot of good and positive things possible thanks to social media, but there are a couple of disadvantages that we are starting to notice. I think in the future people will be more careful about what they post online and will keep more information more exclusive (SnapChat, Path). Programs like Anti-Social and Freedom can bringing up the discussion about Social Media and what this will mean in the future. I think it won’t be really weird to be online with kind of visiting hours, so we can also take some quality time with our real selves.
