Aah facebook, we have such a love/hate relationship.
I admit that when I first signed up for facebook I thought it was the most awesome thing since, well myspace. Now? Not so much. You see while I really enjoy keeping up with my friends and reconnecting with old classmates I'm starting to realize that there is a reason I have not kept in contact with some of these people over the years. So if you would please allow me to get a few things off my chest....
- The profile picture. I'll admit mine is horrible. I haven't updated it in forever, but c'mon people. This whole pouty/duckface thing? Hate it. Don't know what I'm talking about?
- The games. Obviously many enjoy them and that's cool. I just would rather not receive notices every. single. time. you. play. Especially if that is all that you do all day as many of my friends do apparently.
- The status updates. Quotes are not status updates. They may be meaningful, but there is a place under the info section just for your favorite quotes. The vague status updates? Annoying. I.e "I am so mad and hurt right now. I can't even begin to explain" Then no update on what's going on. Btw, yes that is a real update from a guy on my friends list. And of course the TMI updates. I really don't need to know when your period starts. I also would rather not find out that your wife/husband has been cheating on you via facebook status updates. I'm sure that your teenage kids that are on your friends list would rather you keep these things to yourself also.
- The drama queens. Wait a minute I actually kind of like these. They can be really amusing and tend to make my own life look really good in my eyes. Carry on please.
