Wouldn’t it be great if I were writing a post relating to that title?
Were I to do so, I’d only be recycling what many other people have said, so instead I’ll just take this time to take some time to rant and rave.
It is funny the way we might talk to someone and then go check out their facebook profile, or add them so we can do so.
I did have someone admit to FB stalking me (she was a girl who is an acquaintance), and I definitely am a culprit of this too. I know way more about people than they might think. Or do they not think that?
Whatever you put out there, people will find. Sometimes the right people, sometimes just people. Random people. Whatever. I get so flabbergasted by life, on the regular, that I go through binges of updating heavily to not, or fluctuate between trying to reserve some privacy and intimacy, and not.
I have emotions, and I share them on social networking sites. I tried to recently share that I’m now “single”, but it didn’t show up in the news feed. So now where does it go? Off into lost space and time, and only people who really want to know about me might perchance see that in my “information” it says that I’m single.
In conclusion, and not necessarily rightfully so, SN has changed our lives. And you can put on a pretty face on facebook, but everyone knows what it’s like in real life too. It definitely compounds the complexities of interactions, and who knows about pokes!, but I think it’s good overall. Because, let’s face it, it’s entertainment.
It’s when you find it boring that you know you’ve got a problem, and that you need to get back out there, into the world, and actually interact with these people.
Happy Thanksgiving, folks!
