Your Coworker Figures Out How Links Work

The daily life of your coworker was pleasantly enhanced after finding out that internet links can transport you to new and exciting digital based destinations.

For years, your coworker had felt that she was missing out on something, like there was more to this whole internet thing that she wasn’t catching onto. People would forward links to her, but she never could figure out what those characters meant. It sort of made sense to read, but what was the purpose of the https:// that she saw over and over again? And why was it always in blue with an underline?

The alienation confronted her in social media as well. Her Facebook page, awash in shared links, had funny headlines and a first sentence that was on topic. But why did it end? Surely there was more to this. Everyone else around her seemed to be experiencing more. Did they get all this from just the picture alone?

And then you came along! Your budding beacon of good will saw a misjustice that needed to be corrected and you, glorious human, helped to shepherd her onto a new path. One that opened new doors and new possibilities. One that was littered in humorous anecdotes, considerate think pieces, solemn smacks of reality, and the completely fabricated.

With one left button click of that link, her entire world was turned upside down. You showed her the technique, now she is counting on you to help navigate it. Steer truthfully and with purpose. This is not a path to be taken lightly. The minefield of misinformation can be hacked through, but you must teach her to keep an open mind. You need to look past the ones and zeros. Absorb them. Process them. Think before you regurgitate them. Then, and only then, will you truly be enlightened!
