    dotsTheories On The JTA & Israel's Social Netdots

    Well, according to a recent article on Googlenews, originally culled from the JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency...Israel's answer to the Associated Press), it turns out that Israelis are actually the world's leading social networkers, with an average total of 10.7 hours a month devoted to or spent on sites like Facebook! Now this leads one to suspect a correlation between the two main types of people who dwell, work (and social network, apparently)in the sovereign State of Israel: terrorists and counterterrorists. It does sound a bit far-fetched, one would agree, but if the reader would merely think about the general social atmosphere of Israel and couple that with the actual, physical, climatological atmosphere of Israel, then they would see one of two possibilities, two explanations: One, that the people of Israel, tired of the hot, overhanging sun, have taken refuge indoors or beneath shady and capacious storefront awnings, but yet refuse to give up their socializing, so they found a way to continue to do so, while eschewing the raw brutality of the Israeli sun; or, two, that the terrorists need to communicate, especially in the semi-covert way provided by SN (Social Networking) sites like Facebook, and this is the intent of the counterrorists-to distract the terrorists with sites like Facebook, and the games it boasts, and to track them using new encryption technology that they have placed on the site itself, within it's framework. Of course, this is merely this reporter's theory and one which may not carry as much weight as a 350-pound Rabbi lugging a 25-pound barrel of gefilte fish uphill...but, when one thinks about it, neither does this story itself! For, where did this reviewer find this article? Why, on the Jewish Telegraphic Agency's website, of course! And who is mentioned as being the world's greatest, most frequent social-networkers? Why, the Israelis (the Jewish people), of course! Thus, it seems a bit suspect-for it would appear to be more than a little bias. Perhaps if the JTA had said this about another country, then the reader would be more likely to believe their candor. And there are even so still a few things that this reporter/reviewer takes exception with: For instance, the fact that, according to the JTA, the 10.7 hours Israelis spend per month logged on to various social networking sites is somehow supposed to be impressive? 10.7 hours? That would represent, when done evenly and equally, probably less than 15 minutes online per day! Now, this reviewer knows that not only he, but several of his associates, friends and acquaintances spend far more than that online! Therefore, this reporter's final conclusion is either an inconclusive one or else one that debunks and refutes the credibility and truth of almost everything said in this highly suspect, bias article!
