Spam, Spam, Spam and Porn

Since my last layoff in August of 2010, as I was looking for work and trying to figure out what the hell I was going to do to support my family and before all hell broke loose, my good friend of 20+ years encouraged me to use Social Media more.

Dude you got to be on Twitter and Facebook, and I resisted this tooth and nail.  I was thinking like what the hell am I going to Tweet about or put on Facebook, that I just got out of bed or brushed my teeth?

Not for me thank you very much!!!  Well, as all of you can tell if you have been following me.  How weird is that?  Following me!  In any event he created a Social Media monster.

Now I blog, Tweet, Facebook, YouTube and god knows what else daily.  I must admit that not only was I wrong in my assessment about the whole thing but it’s rather fun.

Slowly but surely (and don’t call me Shirley) I am re-connecting with many relatives all over the world and especially in Argentina.  I have met virtual friends by having them somehow find my blog, Tweet etc. or my finding them.

There are still some annoyances as the title indicates, but overall it’s what you make of it.  Now to the title of the blog, it used to drive me nuts when I received email spam or porn solicitations, now I enjoy them, no I kid, I jest.

I realize that’s a part of participating and I am fascinated by the fact that some people actually seem to be pretty intelligent and could use Social Media to try and build a business or promote some other worthwhile agenda.  Yet, they decide to try and get me to click on some porn link?  Oh well, to each his/her own I guess.

Also you may have noticed that I changed the name of my blog from Mauricio’s Musings to Streams of Unconsciousness.

So I leave you with a fun link to Monty Python’s Spam song.  Enjoy!
