I see the words on the page, perhaps they are sprinkled with emoticons. I visualize another person beyond the text runs at the confluence of an obscure point in cyber space and the real world of their life. At this intersection what they intend to convey is not necessarily what they show. The image projected may not be flattering or becoming.

Often there is considerable emotional investment in the words but what is the return on that investment?

I often visualize someone too agitated, too wrapped up in something that is insignificant within the bigger picture of a person's life. Each day spent in anger due becoming consumed in detrimental petty pursuits is one more day a person will never get back that could have otherwise been enjoyed.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

Amen, brother.

Some people really do enjoy wallowing in their own misery preoccupied by imagined monsters under the bed, I used to pity them but now I have a to each his own attitude and if they want to live a miserable life have at it dude or dudette, In the end the main people they are hurting are themselves because everyone else is long gone by then,

There are those who are unhappy in their life for whatever reason and they come onto social sites to harass, bully, or just let loose. Some will come onto a social site just to put their thoughts or opinions out there.

It's the audience that reads it that will actually determine the tone when they respond. An author can use all the little smiley faces they want, but if one doesn't see the message of the words, but instead uses the platform to turn it into a battle zone, that is what will happen.

And in the end, when all is said and done, it's all words on a screen.
