 In mortgage broker news

It is common to find professional on Social media and search engines like Google in fact that is where most people will turn when seeking answers to most questions.  
We wonder how people can easily turn to social media when they are in need of answers to less than simple problems before or in place of consultations with professionals in that field. Because just like Google, asking people on social media for professional solutions means that you are willing to swim through the sea of different opinions to eventually pick one that seems more likely to solve your predicament – one that may not even be correct.

One of the good things about social media and various search platforms is the access we have to all kinds of information. The internet seems to have the answers to ALL our questions. If possible, the internet will even answer questions we are yet to ask.

Unfortunately, while you have access to this information, what you do with it is your cup of tea. In fact, how you choose to believe this information is a larger cup of tea.

Ever had a slight headache and then you try to google about it, ahh! You will start seeing things like ‘brain tumor’ ‘liver tuberculosis’ ‘kidney epidemics (whatever that means)’ ‘intestinal epilepsy’… Okay, at this point, you see it’s easy to fall down the rabbits hole of self diagnosis.

But seriously, you may have discovered that google is not your best friend when you are seeking certain information, especially when such information is related to health. Googling causes of your little headache can give you a heart attack when you read that that little headache is a sign of life-threatening ailments.

There are professionals on social media, people who dish out their expertise and roll out advice without expecting payment in return. Every day, we have doctors writing threads on Twitter, financial gurus giving tips on how to make your money work for you, even digital media experts are not left out in fact we use social platforms in our business daily. 

In the same vein, we have crooks who spread false information on social media and give tips that can be injurious to the health and general well-being of people.

The social media makes you live in a world of many unfiltered thoughts and opinions, of many voices and noise. In the midst of being caught in the web of social media, it is important to step out many times, breathe and realize that the world of social media is totally different from the professional world outside of it.

Nowadays, it is common to find people seek professional help from people they feel can solve their problems. When people need help urgently, they turn to social media for aid or search engines for help. You can now find people tweet things like:

“I can feel a big lump growing in my left breast, what can I do about it?”

“I’m planning to take a loan of 10 million Naira for a new business, should I go ahead?”

I’ve fallen out of love with my partner of 15 years, should I get a divorce?”

There’s a growing trend where people seek advice from online doctors, lawyers, accountants, relationship experts, and other professionals. While this, in itself, is not a terrible thing to do, it is important – in this age and time of leaking DMs and private discussions – to not only keep private things private but to also go through the right medium in seeking solutions to your problems.
