How FACEBOOK, TWITTER and social networking has helped me.

Dude, I am real pissed off or irritated as I don’t know how many people have said me on how much I am addicted to Facebook and Twitter. Many asked me why Facebook ? Why Twitter..?? What’s the use of Social Networking.? So this post is for the people who are fed up or who don’t know how much powerful the social networking sites are. Or How these sites helped me professionally and personally. This is my approach and how Social Networking helped me in everything…
Lets get started with small introduction to these sites. I am just considering here, Facebook and Twitter. Ya I know about ORKUT, but I have moved over from it when I have other sites which are far better than ORKUT.
What is Facebook.?
Facebook is a social networking site created by a harvard geek called Mark Zuckerberg, it seems he had fought with his girl and was occupied with her thoughts while he was in his dorm room. To avoid her thoughts he created a site called thefacebook.com. Which he used to display two pictures and would ask user “Hot Or Not”. For the images Zuckerberg hacked into harvard campus database, obviously he was charged over security which were later dropped. Earlier it was used only his campus, it became instant hit due to facebook’s minimalistic UI and robust features like “Like”, “Comment”, “Group and Pages” etc.
What is Twitter.?
Twitter is another social networking site which provide micro-blogging service where you can broadcast your messages to your followers within a  limit of 140 characters. Here the people/ your friends who follows you are called as “followers”. Here the followers are same as friends in Facebook or Orkut. The main feature of Twitter is it allows you to send or read other users updates, which are referred as Tweets.
Okay, lets get back to my post. So here I am listing few points why I use Facebook and Twitter.
1. Friends:
– Facebook: Wow, what to say. I got connected with my friends with Facebook. The “Friends Suggestion” feature in Facebook is an awesomest feature to see in a site. The suggestion feature has helped me to get connected with my ROCKSTAR friends, Colleagues and off course my College friends. Forget college, Facebook has helped to get connected with my School friends. Tell me who doesn’t wants to get connected with their friends..?? Apart from that guy who is an freaking INTROVERT.
– Twitter: In Twitter you cant add others, but others need to follow you. So they are called as followers. These days even Twitter started the suggestion feature. But Twitter is also cool to get connected with the people you know. With Twitter I am following various people in technology, Mac and iOS development geeks, social groups and etc. There tweets help me to be updated on the various trends and technologies going out there. Don’t forget my work seniors, who keeps tweeting on various stuff which I love to follow.

I got Bangalored/My new year resolutions:

Hi guys,
Its been so long since I updated the blog, probably a month. That was due to I have moved from Udupi to Bengaluru, err Namma Bengaluru. Things are going great at my end, happy for everything. My parents, friends, roomie’s, and work is going great. I just regret for staying at Gadag for only 3 days. (Dad, really sorry…  I am sure, will get couple of leaves this time). Even couldn’t spent much time at Hospet, I met maamu’s in Hospet railway station for 5 mins. WTF dude…!!!
Bengaluru: Namma Bengaluru.
Dude, about Bengaluru. It is true for what people call it as Namma Bengaluru. I really felt like home. (Kindly forget avi as he made me to wait at railway station for 3 hours… :)). Bengaluru is about nice people, nice infrastructure, nice climate (freaking cold, cant go out without any hoods), nice cafes and restaurants and more importantly  well connected by all means.
For each and every bit, I am loving it… Bengaluru rocks… You know what it’s also called “Pub Capital Of India”.
About the post , I was thinking from last couple of months to change something in me or avoid something which I normally do. Trust me bro, I am serious with this list. Take it as my new year resolutions.
1. Pubbing.
Well, I need to stop pubbing at any cost, (screw you guys, don’t call me for your crazy parties.). It is crap, I never drink or smoke but need to be with you guys until late midnight. No proper food and sleep. Forget pubs, hotels, you guys even take me to god damn local bars (missing Aishwarya bar :)).
These days new trend started, get drinks at room and chill out until sun rises.
Smoke..?? Dude, I am gonna die before you all die. Some one said to me “Passive smoking is damn dangerous than active smoking”. At new flat, room has become a boiler(sort of water heater), so much smoke even mosquitoes doesn’t fly in room… Really…
2. Screw friends
He he, this cool… I am fed up of my god damn, freak friends. With these friends I have just roamed, did crazy stuff, wasted money, time and everything. Told you bout local bars and passive smoking. Its not bout smoke or something, dude around 4 in the morning I need to go and get the drinks.
I need to arrange for everything, snacks, places, music (forcibly I need to be a DJ), bike and blah blah… In short screw you guys…
3. Facebook.
I know I am addicted to Facebook, damn I need to stop that. I got all my friends, joined my favorite band’s groups, games and joined forums. So addicted for it, every time I always think of updating my Facebook status/what’s in my mind. So addicted that, I even forgot using orkut. :). Another best part with Facebook is I get various events, gig’s and parties invitation. I need to stop this all and save some bucks. Save..?? File Save right..??
4. No Metal / Head banging.
Boy, these days I have become a metal head. This is how it started, earlier during in engineering had listened to Metallica. Later it was in SJCE Mysore annual day last year where I saw KRYPTOS performing, I was stunned. Even though I was hearing KRYPTOS for the first time, I felt I knew all the songs. Felt like metal is in my blood.
Later it was in “The Big Gig, Manipal” where I saw “eXiled \m/” performing for Metallica covers and their own composition, thats it. I became an metal head, full head banging whenever I hear some Metal. Ask my roomie’s at night I will be with iPod touch listening heavy metal and head banging.
