Online behaviour and Aweb

Online behaviour and Aweb

Didn't find your answer?

The recent focus on a particular member of Aweb made me look around and then ended up with this piece. Basically it says our behaviour on the net [narcissism (egocentrism and preoccupation with prestige), Machiavellianism (tendency to deceive and manipulate), psychopathy (lack of empathy and inhibition), and sadism (pleasure of inflicting pain or humiliation on others)] is a reflection of what we do in real life!!

All I can say, then ...

... is that I feel dreadfully sorry for anyone that personally knows a certain Welsh individual.

I tend to think

Online behaviour is a bit like when you have had a couple of (alcoholic) drinks. It affects us differently - for some it makes them aggressive, for others it makes them a bit less uptight or they are everybody's friend or are more honest.

Whatever, it's in us somewhere but suppressed without the catalyst.

I think that you're right, Andy

I notice a marked difference in tone between comments posted at 3pm on a Wednesday and those posted at 1am on a Saturday.

Interesting article

I prefer to be me all the time. 

I like this extract:

Another finding that was not emphasised strongly in the paper: across all participants, the average amount of time they admitted devoting to commenting was over an hour a day. AN HOUR! Commenting frequency was associated with younger age, being male, and high scores on the authors’ GAIT test. If you have a friend who spends upwards of an hour of their day remarking on friends’ Facebook photos, replying to everyone’s tweets, or making memes for the subreddit Advice Animals – whether pleasantly or savagely – perhaps it’s time to gently prod them in another direction.

Now hands up one and all, how long do you spend commenting on Aweb?

Too long

If only fellow accountants were stereotypically boring it would be much easier to cut down.

Well as accountants surely some form of time ledger re posting needs maintained (Except for those embracing fixed time posting)

I have 1090 posts over 2 years 4 months, a daily posting coefficient of 1.28 (rounded to 2 decimal places)

I will now break out excel and chart over the 28 months to try to deduce a trend.

There will obviously be low rates in July (holidays) but I think some form of statistical interpretation of the graph over time might help identify if I really ought to seek help with the issue.(Is the problem getting worse?)

I really feel Aweb is at fault for a website for accountants that does not have these sorts of analytical features re postings as standard.

What Is This About?

I have been a member for about 12 years and a reader for more years than that. What is happening here?
