Facebook Etiquette: #realtalk

 So, if I don’t see it on Facebook, I miss it?

You are really not going to call me…?

I’m just suppose to read every word on every Post

Did I Like it? I might have…

images-9

But, what does that mean…?

I guess I don’t have a life…

I would have called you… to let you know!

We are not talking about a house party or something simple….

…these are serious Life Events that I am missing because no one talks anymore!

If I don’t see it on my News-Feed, I miss it?

If it is not on my Timeline, it didn’t happen!

If it is not on your Timeline, I don’t know about it!

Is posting a Status on Facebook the only way of communicating?

I would have called you…

 I can’t even get a text about it?

So, if my data is low, I don’t know what is going on in my “Friends” and family’s lives…???

That pisses me off!!!!!!!

And yes, I am guilty of it too, but I hate this…

…I hate this Facebook culture!

We have become so caught up in this photographed short storybook, that “we don’t even talk anymore, like we use to…” (Charlie Puth ft. Selena Gomez)

Don’t get me wrong…I think that it is great to catch up with old classmates from high school, connect with family that our long distance, and network with individuals with similar interests.

But, the problem is my family, people that I call friend…not associates…do not update me on their lives! I mean, I have your phone number, and you have mine! Call me when something big happens in your life!

We assume that if it is on Facebook, everyone we know, sees what Events are coming up…

who got married…

engaged…

who passed away… #RWG

who had kids… #Congratulations

If you deactivate your account for a month, guaranteed, you would not know what was going on in your “friends” lives.

And what, you’ve got like 500+ “friends” right…?

To me, that is ridiculous!!!!

 

Excuse me world, there are other forms of communication!

Facebook Rule #1: Don’t assume that just because everyone has a Facebook page, that they know what is going on in your life. Call your friends! Call your family, at least!

  1. I have to agree, I am not a friend of Facebook culture. I remember when I entered college ::cough:: years ago…iPods had just become a thing, Facebook had just been released, and Myspace was all the rage. I was so disheartened when no one spoke in class, I struggled to find friends in what should have been traditional community events, and on the bus ride home everyone sat as a faceless drone with plugs in their ears. Everything was so separated, so not personal, and now it has become common place. We have grown to accept the distance and the void that social media and other technologies have allowed over the years.
