I’m talking about Facebook. In the beginning, it was cool. It was going to be this great way to keep in touch and keep up with my family back home in Virginia. It was going to help me keep in touch with my friends from high school and life in general. I’ve had Facebook a very long time, couple hundred internet years.
I don’t know any more about what’s going on with Lisa in Hawaii, she never posts. I have no idea what my mother is doing, because her FB was last updated in September 2009. I text my sister because our conversations usually aren’t suitable for Facebook. My husband & kids live in the same house with me. I know the goofiness that goes on in their lives.
I can access Facebook on my dinosaur desktop pc, my iPad and my iSuck phone(android whatever phone because I’m too cheap to buy an ultra mini iPad. I already use reading glasses for the iPad!). I tend to ignore Facebook 93.2% of the time on all electronic devices.
It’s not that I don’t care about my friends and family. It’s just that I don’t care to see one more meme about how “walmart gives you shopping cart rage” or another meme about “what doesn’t kill you, makes your drinks stronger.” I also don’t care about the latest political view of the talking heads and the plethora of images that swarm Facebook about the debate. I once posted a rant about the ignorance of the people in not understanding their own government. A dumb persona copied it to her page and people just oooh’d and ahhh’d about how wonderfully smart she was and how on point the topic was… that was until someone pointed out that it was originally my post and I am not of the same political belief and suddenly this “wonderful” post was now garbage. that kind of shit pisses me off. Either you agree with the point or you don’t, doesn’t matter who said it first. anyway… I digress….
My point here is, I no longer(or more acurately, never) use Facebook for it’s intended purpose. It takes up space in my phone, my iPad and even my guilty conscience because I “FEEL” like I should be posting something. But really, I just want to get rid of it. However, by getting rid of Facebook, I am inviting a bajillion txt messages and emails regarding why I am no longer a part of the social networking world.
That is probably my most narcissistic thought of the day.
