Big Announcement

Guys, followers of The Ramble, I (John) have some news for you. And this isn’t good news. I have decided to take a hiatus from several projects that I have started, and one of those projects is The Ramble. Right now I’m trying to find out what is important and what isn’t and The Ramble along with some other stuff has just been stressing me out and worrying me to get content on here and I just need to take a step back from some things. I don’t know when I will pick this up again if I ever will but I am calling it a hiatus just so if I ever decided to pick it back up I can. I hope you understand and I hope you will continue to follow me through my other social media accounts and my website JohnMStuart.com and support me.

Thank you guys so much,

John Stuart

Vlogging: Parasocial Relationships

 “Parasocial relationships are one-sided relationships, where one person extends emotional energy, interest and time, and the other party, the persona, is completely unaware of the other’s existence. Parasocial relationships are most common with celebrities, organizations (such as sports teams) or television stars.” – Parasocial Relationships: The Nature of Celebrity Fascinations

As promised here is the second post about vlogging. This one I want to talk about the relationship that is formed between the viewer and the creator. It is called a Parasocial Relationship. It is really one sided because the viewer starts to feel like they know the person on the camera. They feel like they know a lot about that person. But the person on the video doesn’t know one thing about the person watching their video.

The Ramble In 2017

“I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.”
–Leonardo da Vinci

It is a new year, which means a chance to make things new! This year I want to post on The Ramble more often. I want to get other people involved and get them posting weekly so that you can have content each week to read. In order to do that I have to set aside time each week to sit down and write something for The Ramble. Which also means I must have something to write about!

Vlogging: Long Term Affects (Opinion)

“A video blog or video log, usually shortened to vlog /ˈvlɒɡ/, is a form of blog for which the medium is video, and is a form of web television. Vlog entries often combine embedded video (or a video link) with supporting text, images, and other metadata.” – Video blog – Wikipedia

I watch a few YouTube vloggers and one of them vlogs daily. They are a family vlogger and I love watching them as they do all different things from day to day. I love watching their family grow and just hearing their story. I feel like I know them even though I really don’t. But it has got me thinking. What kind of affect does it have on them long term?

Facebook “Hacking” Going Around

I’m seeing this almost all the time. One of my friends will post “I don’t plan on making a second Facebook account. I have been hacked, do not accept friend requests from me.” But what they don’t realize is they aren’t being hacked at all. People are searching through Facebook and finding someone, they create a new profile with that persons name and they use that person’s profile photo, or one of them. Which profile photos are set to public as default. Then with this new profile they go through that persons friends list (again public, most of the time) and they friend request everyone.

There is no hacking going on here. Simply just impostors pretending to be you. You’re account most likely isn’t in danger and all you have to do is report the new profile and maybe tell your friends to. That’s all!
