As a sociable person I have always tried to keep up to date with the newest social platforms, websites, and apps, I think at one point I also had a Bebo and a MySpace account.
The information available on me publicly online is mainly two accounts which are my Facebook, and LinkedIn which act like my first impressions for people, – where Facebook is my social first impression, and LinkedIn is my professional first impression- all my accounts on other platforms such as Xbox, Instagram, Twitter have nicknames or usernames that aren’t really direct to my name, since they are quite personal and not for the public to see anyway. Vine however is where it got out of hand.
So when Vine (six second video on a loop) came out, I decided to give it a shot and use the trending hashtags in order to gain followers and likes and share it with the world, what I failed to realize however is that there was a Facebook page which was saving the videos and posting them on it’s page, and that page ladies and gentlemen was ArabVines which has about 400,000 followers, yeah exactly.
The problem wasn’t that they have posted one or two vines of me on Facebook, but three ladies and gents, and this also goes further when I decided to search my Vine username on YouTube and found a few Vines on there too, so the information on me Abdullah AlSaad online is limited to friends and family, however my six second videos under a username (which I sadly won’t be sharing with you guys) are there for the world, and they are there to stay.
