The last few weeks have been awful if you happen to be active on social media (Facebook for instance). Actually lets be more honest… The last year has sucked for anyone that participates in social media. By this I mean making posts everyday or so, commenting, liking, and sharing.
You don’t dare post anything about what is going on in the world, politics, your own personal goals/opinions or anything that is about you personally, unless you just had a baby. Actually that isn’t true, because even if you are raising a child there is an absurdly high amount of people who are going to tell you that you’re doing it wrong (because they raised the perfect child).
Everything you are posting or saying or DOING on Facebook is being attacked, second-guessed, or out right shut down. Now, I don’t know about you but I get on Facebook to share my blog posts, to see what my friends and family are up to, and to keep in touch because I forget to text people back. However, that innocent desire to want to actually CONVERSE with people is ruined by people being, well, assholes.
That’s right, you’re an asshole. That goes for all the stupid comments and ignorant posts that flood my newsfeed every single day. I am sick of seeing loads of crap at the top of my timeline.
But the best bit is that I can’t say this on my Facebook, because if I did there would be those who would say that I was wrong for having those feelings, thoughts, or opinions.
I am kidding myself in thinking that people actually care about my life, what I am doing, or what new thing has happened… Everyone is laughing and I am in the corner wearing the dunce hat.
What gets me the most is how everyone claims to that their friends/family are entitled to their own opinion but the moment that happens they are given ten different reasons as to why they are wrong…. WHAT?
Because of this I have posted and commented less in recent weeks and been more active on Instagram and Twitter. The only problem is that not everyone else uses those so I am losing contact with people.
Just to clarify: WE ARE ALL WRONG.
I believe that everyone should take up blogging so that they can spew their ignorance all over the place without it being RIGHT THERE in people’s faces. I would actually have to click on the post or the link and then read it, where on Facebook it is just there.
And there you have it, all of the above is what is wrong with social media, mainly Facebook. It is a big bowl of festering bullshit fed by people who don’t care about you personally but pretend to do so. Done. Done. Done.
