I don't like to be told what to do, which makes me a lousy follower. It goes against my grain. Maybe it's that 60's thing in me - I prefer to "do my own thing" and you do yours,
and leave me the hell alone.
Facebook bugs me - I hate it yet I go on it to keep in touch with family members that live far away. Daily, I tell myself, I am NOT going to comment on something - or I am not going to post. Or I get my panties in a bunch, and I post a snide status. I think they all know about my moods.
So the big trend I am noticing within my Facebook circle is, all the older ladies who are in their 60's are challenging the rest of us, to post recent picture of ourselves. Before all of this, I was going to update my profile picture - NOW I'll wait. I always go against the flow.
I've been getting all these silly messages on Facebook- pass it on to someone else and keep it going. GUESS WHAT? I have broken so many chains in my life and I'm still alive to talk about it. I am NOT the person, to send that crap to. It bugs me.
Why does it bug me? I could just ignore it and move on. I guess it's because I believe it is childish and a waste of time and I can't believe some friends, fall for this. I mean, I am not talking about a 20-year-old - these are 50, 60, 70 year old women. Come on NOW.
Yesterday I got a message, telling me not to "friend" so-in-so - because they are stealing identities of people. In the first place, I don't just friend anybody and secondly, that is a fake scam. Someone gets a name and profile of someone on Facebook and then, basically slanders them. Its not true and what they are doing, is spreading gossip. I wonder how they would like it, if someone did that to them. I bang my head against the wall hard, when they say,
"It's true, I saw it on the news today."
I don't think we are getting smarter as a society - I believe we are getting DUMBER. And while technology is awesome, the overuse of it, has made us GULLIBLE, dumb, gossipers,
IDIOTS, Argumentative, combative, naive. I could go on and on.
What has happened to us?
