This article is about Sharing with friends and followers best practices.
I want to make an attempt at an apology for sharing certain YouTube videos with my friends on Facebook. I have noticed a recent video that was on a subject about global climate change and the rants of a man who likes to use colorful language to express himself. I made the mistake of sharing it before fully watching it first.
For those who tend to share on Facebook or Twitter, it is both a rule for me to learn to follow by and for others who may read this post to also follow. Many of our friends and followers may be highly sensitive as to the content of certain videos we like to share. I too have experienced offensive posts that were graphic or videos that were offensive to me and know exactly how it feels.
My intentions were basically to share the things I am interested in, not always positive nor politically correct or even polite in the face of things. We all need time to chill and look back at things we have done and reason ways to correct our mistakes, such as posting a video from YouTube to others, who may indeed be offended by it's content, be it the subject matter, the language, the graphic images or the background music or ads of the article, video or website shared with friends and followers.
So, I am trying to tell you that I will start posting the videos on my own Private Facebook wall. At least for the most part. If you want to see what I see, know what I know and feel some of what I feel about the world online that I see day after day from my own vantage point, you are welcome to look at things I post on my wall. I regret that I have been impulsive with sharing lately. I need to tone it down and make it easy on my fellow Facebook followers and friends. The thing is, I had not even bothered to think or even notice that certain subjects might even offend others. I figured most people would either watch it out of curiosity or ignore it and move on. But in case anyone who reads this, has noticed that certain videos on YouTube that I have shared over time, might contain Strong Language, then I make an effort in the future to refrain from sharing them Publicly and just keep them for my own reference on my own Facebook Wall.
Okay, enough said. Have a good day everyone.
