I have decided that Facebook is the easiest way for folks to show off their passive aggressive tendencies under the guise of “It’s MY Facebook.”
Folks use the status line as a place to either start a feud, fuel a feud or just stir shit up.
I don’t care about your financial woes. I gots my own, I just don’t put them out there. Putting it out there, only makes your friends feel awkward and embarrassed.
I don’t need to know who you are sleeping with.
Or who you aren’t.
I truly don’t care if you have an issue with the politics at large. Trust me, you sound like a tool, using your status to write up the sound bite you heard on the radio on the way to work. If you don’t know more about the issues, then shut up. Better yet…skip the politics.
I don’t care if you have gout, gonnarehea or diarrea…keep it to yourself. I can’t help you and if you have issues, I don’t think you really need to be on Facebook in the first place.
If you have an issue with a loved one, please, don’t put it on blast. Don’t call them out on Facebook. Don’t feel the need to air your dirty laundry on the internet for everyone to weigh in on. I don’t need my own drama. I really don’t want your drama on my page.
If you have something to say to a friend, then send them a private message. Or take it a step further, CALL them. Set up a time to visit and work shit out. But to put “I am gonna make it, with or without you” or “People will do the unexpected to show you their true colors.” etc…it’s just stupid. It makes you feel important. But in reality…your friends are talking about you behind your back.
I had a couple of friends mess with me a couple of years ago. On MySpace, they decided to have a “war” with their status updates. Only on MySpace, if you weren’t friends with both of them, you only saw one side of it…which left your friends going “What the hell is that about?”
Let me tell you what it does to a person who’s friends with both of them…as I sat there reading one, then the other…neither of them responding to phone calls or texts…I sit, reading these things they keep writing and in my head going “Oh.My.God!!!” Panic attack in 3…2….
Fast forward a week, they both show up at my house for a party and I find they mock broke up to mess with me on MySpace. So for a week, I sat, with my head in the Land of Confusion, trying to figure out what the hell had happened…yeah…funny now. But for a week, I was stressed out trying how to uninvite one of them so we didn’t have to set up the mud wrestling in the back yard or pass out helmets for when stuff started to fly…
I am all for free speech. I am all for differing opinions, it’s what makes the world go ’round. However, I don’t think our men and women are fighting this war for your silly Facebook/MySpace update.
These are SOCIAL networking sites. Use them as such. Use them to reach many people with updates on your life. Keep your rashes, sex life and financial woes to yourself.
I don’t want to read your rants against my religion, my politics, whatever…all it does it make you look like a zealot/idiot/maniac. And it may get you deleted.
Don’t fight with your significant other. Because you can say it, I can read it, you can delete it, but I still know it was there. And I am gonna tell someone. We all are. And we are all going to talk about it. Trust that.
Work your passive/agressive, your mommy/daddy issues, your needy shit out with your therapist.
I am not paid enough.
