IMO, many religions and religious people don't see the irony in their beliefs.

Holy crap... I know there are negative aspects to social networking community, but I have never heard of this until now. W-wh-why... this app? WTF. Has this what's it's come too? Judging people, which we all do, but now make it public. You have nothing better do you piece of crap.

Peeple - Controversial people-rating app Peeple goes live, has a plan to profit from users’ negative reviews

Peeple, the controversial people-rating application that lets its users rate and review anyone, is not a hoax or vaporware, as many suspected following the media backlash surrounding the unveiling of the company’s intentions last fall. The Washington Post even called the app “terrifying,” given that the app didn’t plan to allow users to opt out of being reviewed — a feature that remains in the version that launched this week.

I heard about it. I have no desire to even check it out personally and if I find out if any of my friends using this, I will banish them. No lie. I don't need people like this in my life and will not condone them judging people as if it were a sport.

I put this here because it's more about the root cause of social networks moreso than Adele. Sorry, no video

Watch Adele Scold a Fan at Concert: 'This Isn’t a DVD. This is a Real Show'

Quote
Society’s biggest threat isn’t capitalism, but in fact the concert terrorists who hold up phones—or worse, IPADs!—throughout an entire show to capture photos and video for Instagram, Snapchat and the like, thus ruining the live experience of being at a show.

Instead of taking like a couple snapshots or an occasional quick video and then putting the phone away, some of these fans spend the entire concert viewing the show through their tiny machine instead of their eyeballs. Adele complained about this phenomenon during a concert on Sunday in Italy, during which one woman appeared to be shooting a feature film.

“I want to tell that lady as well, can you stop filming me with a video camera because I’m really here in real life,” said Adele. “You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera.” She went on: “Can you take your tripod down. This isn’t a DVD. This is a real show. I’d really like you to enjoy my show because there’s lots of people outside that couldn’t come in.”

Here, now that you’re done reading a post about the video, watch this video of the crowd applauding Adele for scolding the woman for taking the video.

Gawd, I hate when this happens. Watch the freakin show... that's why you are there. Why would I watch a crappy video of someone else's experience of attending said event? People trying to define themselves by posting anything and everything to make them appear to have some validity. Mind boggling.

Thanks

But ya see the irony in THAT video?

I wish more people would do this. Tell people to stop recording sh*t.  You don't have to photograph every freakin second of your life. Your living in a world other than your own.

More along the lines of Social Networking...

One of my new favorite artists speaks out...

Elle King responded to a hater of her Boston Calling set with a lengthy Instagram post

Quote
The final Boston Calling at City Hall Plaza was an eventful one, featuring everything from Prince covers to New England Patriots sightings. Not every artist received unanimous praise at the festival, though. Many attendees were critical of Robyn’s remix-only set, and one Sunday performer felt some backlash from one member of the crowd via Instagram.

Elle King, the Grammy-nominated singer famous for such hits as “Ex’s & Oh’s” and “America’s Sweetheart,” responded to an Instagram user who had commented on a photo of King, posted by a different user, on stage with a drink in her hand. The commenter had written, “[King] was wasted, and sounded terrible because of it. One of the only low points of an otherwise killer day.”


Quote
I have to be honest. I have some followers who know me from Ex's&Oh's and I also have some fans who have seen me go from empty bars to theaters. I am BLESSED beyond belief that I get to call this self expression of mine a career. Someone took this photo and a comment said "she was drunk and was the worst part of the day". Do I drink? Yes. Hell yes. Was I wasted? No. I've always felt different from other people and felt such a disconnect with the social media aspect of what comes along with being a somewhat known musician. For a long time I saw Instagram and Twitter as a way for me to connect with my fans and interact with them. And listen, I'm not crying boo fuckin hoo over the mean **** people may write about me, because brother I'll tell you what, I been called a HELL of a lot worse to my face. But it's very sad and disheartening that our generation have become so comfortably judgmental. I am who I am. I will continue to be who I am, flaws and all. What I'm truly trying to express to anyone who cares is that I have worked really, really hard to get where I am, and I've done it without changing myself to fit anyone's mold. Be it physically, musically, or mentally. I began writing this out of frustration, but as I finish, I'm reminded that there IS goodness in this world. There IS beauty and kindness and LOVE. I've **** up so many times in my life and I'm going to **** up time and time again. But I can and will always try harder, I can and will always get better, and I can and will always remain true to who I am. To my loving fans who accept me, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. If I can do this, so can you. Make room for goodness in your life and CHOOSE to live in light and love. Cool

In response, King’s reposted the photo and a wrote out a lengthy caption in which she confronted her haters and thanked her loyal fans.

“I’ll tell you what, I been called a HELL of a lot worse to my face,” King wrote. “But it’s very sad and disheartening that our generation have become so comfortably judgmental.”

The original commenter was quick to apologize, and King’s post has already garnered more than 5,000 likes.

Good for her. This culture of tweets, instagram, blah, blah, blah and say what the hell you want to the world is throwing respect out the window. Man I'm glad people are speaking up and calling out people.

on a side note, I am seeing more people being downright brazen about texting and driving. These folks scare me. Now they are just holding the phone in front of them over the steering wheel. They don't care.

Thanks for the report. Maybe this will pick up steam.

I knew about the Eagles thing and the audience knew as well. It works out well once everybody knows the rules.

Well, this 'Mannequin' thing initially seemed like a silly thing... and it is, I do see creative processe's going here.

I found this one particularly fun.

Ok, it's funny video stuff, but I see they are at least self aware and making fun of themselves.
