Whether we believe it or not, it seems that there is a general notion supporting the concept of a near end to the world, as we know it now at least. Moreover, sites have been developed, countdowns have been setup, documentaries have been produced and videos have been created to make sure the world is aware of the predictions towards a nearing annihilation of the world!

The one thing all these warning tools have in common with each other is the signs they speak of, such as: Wars, famine plague & disease, earthquakes, traffic accidents, rapid transport, knowledge, violence and more.

Since I consider myself an active social media user, I think I can safely state the following: regardless of whether the end is near or not, social media plays a crucial role in further spreading the idea and enforcing it into our minds, even if unintentionally!

I promise you, if you are a regular Facebook user focusing your use for business or just to staying connected with friends and their lives, you will just hate being bombarded with more than 2 video or audio shares per day. I personally removed friends from my account due to the fact that they seem to have too much time on their hands and they share meaningless and useless audio and video clips on my profile!

2. Limit their access to your profile!

Are you shocked? Well, don’t be! I had friends remove me from their Facebook account simply because I placed them on my Limited Profile list due to privacy concerns! Sometimes, I even got calls r messages complaining about it to the point where we almost lost our friendship!
