Too much !

Technology needs to help us take control so we can manage the people who ring too much, text too much, tweet too much ,snapchat too much, clog the Instagram feed, status update too much. They are no different from the people who ring too much. They ring and you don’t answer. So they ring back and then they ring back and then they ring back. Your choice whether you answer your phone or not but the obsessive ringing can only be dealt with if you can turn the volume down on the phone. Not all  cordless landline  phones do that any more and not all phone bases do. Twitter is the only site I know which offers reasonable ways of dealing with excessive behaviour. If it is unwanted you can block the person. If it is just them having a moment you can mute their tweets for a while and then unmute them to see if they are over whatever it is they needed to get over. Facebook you can block individual status updates when you want to and that helps. People get in moods and people get unwell and so they use social media and technology inappropriately . What about phones , though? Someone who keeps texting you when it’s your day off? You can turn your phone off. You can ignore them but in the end it makes your phone unusable and has a negative impact on your phone use. It would be so much easier if you could mute the person who constantly messages you on your mobile on your day off. I watched this with someone today which is why this post came to mind. For me , it’s the home landline phone ringing and ringing and ringing when someone is unwell. Unplugging the landline is not an option but I have no volume control on the new phone setup. We all know people and we all have people who do not realise the impact of their behaviour sometimes. We have technology. Offer us some workable solutions like Twitter .
