I Hate Facebook

I was on Facebook once for about a minute.  I know everyone loves it but I hated it.  Someone told me it is a way to stay connected to the outer world.  What’s an outer world? The twilight zone?  All I saw were peoples photos and comments about seeing a new hot movie, shopping at a new mall or just returning from a trip to the Bahama’s.  Hardly outer worlds.  I saw strange greetings to peoples loved ones on birthdays and anniversaries which in my humble opinion is private stuff.  I tired of pictures of kids winning soccer matches, people running marathons and new babies.  Do you really care about all this with more than a few people?  And if you did care why not meet for coffee or talk on the phone?

I said all this to someone younger than me.

“Nooooo!” she said, “you are missing the point!”

“Really?” I replied, “which point…..outer worlds?”

“It’s a really good way of keeping in touch with….” her voice trailed off.

“People you don’t want to stay in touch with?” I asked.

She blushed.

I rest my case.

  1. Wonderful An, I loved it. I’m supposed to be on social media to promote my art so Surya keeps me there and tells me every now and then that I have 5 new likes? I can get 5 new likes by being pleasant at the grocery store. Nobody has bought the art.

    Lol! So true! The only people we ‘stay in touch with’ on Facebook are the ones we wouldn’t bother staying in touch with outside of Facebook 😂 I deleted my account a long time back

    What a funny and true post! I agree totally. Facebook is annoying and a maintenance headache. I tried it for a few days and said goodbye to it for good. The younger generation can’t function without it.

    • Hi David! I understand that you have to be on social media if you are running a business, but for personal stuff I think it’s obnoxious! And no, the younger generation can’t function without it and now we have this PokemanGo so young people look more spaced out than ever!!
