I love reading her stories. She often tells it like it is. I think that's why I like reading her pages. Now, I can really relate to her post, I Must Ask a Question about being ignored on Facebook. Let me tell ya Ruth, I'm right there with ya on that one girl.
Often I've went weeks without so much as a status update and I really don't think others notice that I haven't been around. No really!!! But boy let me tell ya miss a Facebook Birthday and they won't talk to you for weeks.
Ever had a post hit your newsfeed and it's someone arguing and shouting in the third person? WTH man!!!! And the other tons of drama like the one who announced she was pregnant and isn't and is now upset everyone is starting rumors.
Now, Some of you may remember a time some years ago when I had a rift with a supervisor on Facebook and quit Facebook Style. That was a time I'd like to forget except now Facebook does this little memory thing so every so often it will pop up there right along with the memory of losing our beloved Chihuahua. Damn you Facebook!!! I really didn't care about the job thing I had been looking for another one of those, but damn do ya gotta remind me about my dog Mark?
Now I do not do any of this...
Seriously now sometimes I see pics like that and I think the person has gas. Try some Phillips Milk of Magnesia for that honey. I really don't understand this trend.
A few other issues I have is with the disturbing child abuse pictures and animal abuse pictures. I hate when they come in my newsfeed.
This was actually my status a few weeks ago....
If I were to tell you that my son/daughter had a disease and could possibly die from the disease there would be comments of prayers, kind words and love spreading around. A support system reaching around the world. Heck it may even reach the highest magnitude of Facebook and get a, "If this post gets 1,000 likes AT and T will donate $100,000" But when I say my child suffers from the disease of addiction to heroin there is none of that. It's different when the disease is addiction to drugs. There is no prayers and kind comments. Why is that?
There is no support. Instead of 1,000 likes it's likely everyone will drop me. You freaking literally get shunned. I guess what I'm trying to say is that those people who ignore others on Facebook really don't see an issue until they put something there and no one comments it or likes it. Or when something affects them personally. That is another story there.
I'm with ya Ruth!!!! I really don't think Social Networking sites are all that social anymore.
