Information War, Personal Security and Me

Too much of anything is just bad. You cannot consume too much in your tummy, you cannot consume too much in your mind. I was never a social media person because if I don't know a person how can I interact and share my personal interests. However, at one point I worked for a social media company and created many accounts, written many social media guides and published online.
The noise that social media creates gives an illusion that you can make big things out of it. Though I never spend many hours on social media but I started sharing content on it, on and off, and with certainty I can say my own sites performed better without social sharing.
From my experiences I found going on many social channels means dilution of ideas. Because I am individual and not a company I cannot go to many social channels and create content. I don't have budget to appoint someone who can work for me on social media. If you are individual blogger like me and creating many social channels for sure…

Only one thing become easy for me that is reading email. I kept only emails on and relied on email notifications. However today no mails popped out. I thought may be everyone celebrating India's Republic Day.
I text message to CEO of reputed company regarding a pending email answer. He is a busy fellow. You can get him easily. Since matter was important I thought to give a text message.
Out of nothing I opened my email and found his reply which he did early morning.
SHOCKED.
Lesson learnt check your mail box manually before texting.
