5 Reasons why I’m not particularly fond of Facebook
I recently started feeling depressed when reading Facebook status updates from people. It’s quite depressing to read about the awesome things happening in other peoples lives while things in your own life isn’t currently that great. I mean, some people get a new car every 3 months. But it’s not just a new car like a Hyundai or a VW Polo. It’s Range Rover Evoque’s and BMW’s.. you know what I mean.
Other things that makes me feel sad for other people is the weird status updates that they post which doesn’t make any sense or it’s just a short line like: “Why did this happen to me?”. That’s it. So now you’re sitting there and you ask yourself: What!!!! Tell me!! What happened??? I don’t want to give this person attention so I don’t really want to ask but I want to know. Because that’s how humans are…nosey! And then eventually someone asks what happened. It’s just to get attention. Eish, the world that we’re living in today where you can’t speak to people face to face anymore.
Anyway. This might sound like I’m moaning (Ok I am. Shoot me!) Here’s my list of 5 reasons why I’m not particularly fond of Facebook. I could probably think of more but I don’t want to spend that much time typing about Facebook.
- People posting short status updates which doesn’t make any sense just to get attention.
I’ve noticed that there’s an increase in people posting statuses on Facebook that doesn’t make any sense. For example they will say: “I can’t believe he did that!”. Uhm ok. So you want me to ask who did what just because you want to see how many comments and likes you can get on your useless status update. Please stop that and rather post something useful like how to build a table out od beer cans. You’ll get more likes if you post something like that.
- Rich people posting updates when their parents buys them a new car every three months.
Why? No one gives a shit if you get a new car every three months. Us mediocre humans with them mediocre cars really love to see how you get a new one every time you get bored of the other one.
- Babies! People post too many baby photos.
This is so weird. Sometimes when I open Facebook it feels weird looking at my screen when it’s full of baby’s. Please stop sharing your baby photos. No one cares.
- Pictures of what you just ate.
Why do you want to share what you just ate. Seriously. I don’t feel the need to let everyone on Facebook know what I just ate. I don’t see the point in that. Sorry.
- Profile hacking
I think there’s at least one person a day who posts something like: “Hi. Please ignore all messages you get from me. My profile was hacked”. So how secure is Facebook? I know some people might have a really shitty password and not everyone knows that you should have all kinds of weird characters in your password. Facebook should actually send out an email saying that they should update their password to something more difficult. I know this sucks because who will remember a password that doesn’t resemble a word.
