- From coloq. posturear 'act with posture', and this one Posture and -ear.
- 1. M. coloq. Esp. artificial and impostada attitude taken for convenience or presumption.
In December 2017, The Rae decided to include the term posture in his reference dictionary. Social media had long invited us to think that on many occasions, what a lot of people shared was pure posture. It started with networks like Facebook, but things peaked with Snapchat, Whatsapp and Instagram. The difference is that Snapchat and Whatsapp are usually closed environments, whereas on Facebook or Instagram they can be public if you choose.
Do we publish a photograph in which we practice a hobby is posture? The issue arose in explaining some of the advantages of exposing certain “Secret”, alluding to the Johari's window. Specifically, we exhibited three images on the screen: a girl doing sports stretches, two people playing chess and a volunteer helping in the dining room of a 3rd-year-old residence.
Our Values: Are they explained or transmitted?
This is a question whose answer can also be answered by the previous question. Our Values (Superpowers) are transmitted through our actions, Inactions, because of our behavior, our way of relating. Explicitly including our values in our personal presentation is complex:
“Hello, I'm disciplined, Empathetic, Patient, Solidarity”… Doesn't it seem a little forced, even posture? Isn't it better to prove it than to say it?
It's all about not cheating
An image of a person in a game of chess conveys a lot: Patience, Strategy, mettle, mental agility … But it must be real., un impossed, because otherwise we enter the posture. The bubble effect social media can be negative, as well as an over-exposure. But the worst thing is to deceive, impersonate who you're not, create a character. That goes against us personal brand, without a doubt.
Selfitis: Do you obey the excess of selfies to a transtorno?
That's what they say.. I was recently read in La Vanguardia “…when this action begins to repeat itself constantly and compulsively it should be defined as "Selfitis". This is indicated by the survey published in the International Journal of Mental Health and Addiction by researchers Janarthanan Balakrishnan and Mark Griffiths”.
I rather believe that the abuse of selfies is due to an attempt to satisfy “Fans” by some people with important communities. It usually happens that when they publish a self-portrait (selfie, especially), more likes that in an image, Put, of a magnificent sunset.
Posture or explain how we are
In short, I think that the exposure of images or videos that respond to our hobbies, passions if you hurry me, can be a good way to Show how we are. With resura, no abuse. And if it can be, with some elegance, Best. I like Instagram, I think it's a good Complement to networks like Linkedin (where we explain who we are) or a personal blog.
The problem, as Andrés Pérez Ortega commented in his post The Internet was Instagram, is that this network is our only vehicle for communication. There is not a single social network that covers all areas of communication, not even YouTube. And that's where I'm right., friend Andrew: nothing like a well-fed blog.
