Rotten Beef….What's Eating You?

  • Apr 2

    So you’ve done the Myspace thing and the Twitter thing and even the Facebook thing. But have you gotten hooked by Pinterest yet? It’s fast becoming one of the more popular Social Networks out there today.

    So how does that affect you? Well, if you’re not into the whole Social Networking scene, it probably won’t.

    But if you work in an office setting, you’ve probably noticed your co-workers spending endless hours on Facebook instead of working. Now, with Pinterest climbing the Social Network ladder, I’d say it’s a good time to get interested or be prepared to be picking up your office mate’s slack.

    While Pinterest is an interesting Social Network website, it does sort of show the mentality of the average American. First there was Myspace where you could post crazy pictures and make your “personal” page all sorts of crazy looking. 

    Then Facebook hit the scene. Kind of “Plain Jane in the looks department, but you could still post crazy pictures, links to other places to go on the Internet and even tell the world about that first cup of coffee you had this morning (see the time wasting relevance coming into play?).

    Now with Pinterest, you can pass your time all day by looking at “pins” on “boards” from other members of this relatively new Social Media network. The best part about this is, all you really have to do is “pin” a picture or click “like” and you’re done. Amazing! Society is becoming so lazy, they can’t even take the time to type anything somewhat relevant to life anymore. We all just “point and click”. Ain’t life grand?

    With what people post (publicly) online these days and how often they do it, it sort of seems like not many of them have too many brains. Just saying….

    This monster called facebook has to be STOPPED!  Where is the line between REALITY and VIRTUAL REALITY drawn?

    Take for example what happened to me recently. I am by no means Mr. Popularity but my “friend” list on Facebook had grown close to 500 people. It got to the point the “friend” requests were coming from stranger and stranger people. I rarely get on and when I do I was having trouble finding my real friends to communicate with. So I posted that if I haven’t heard from you in a while or you have not answered my Facebook messages, I was going to thin my “friend” list dramatically. True to my word, those I have not heard from were cut.

    One of those “friends” happen to be a real-life friend I met in high school. I sent this friend at least 2 or 3 FB messages but they never responded. They continued to post on FB just not return my messages. 3 days after the cut was made, they finally realized they were not on my list. WHOA! Did all hell break loose.

    This friend was so upset that they blocked me from seeing them online, blocked my email address and sent me a nasty text telling me how hurtful “I” was and never to call again.

    WTF?! So if I go and remove my parents, siblings, children or cousins from my Facebook “friends” list they should never talk to me again?

    HELLO people! Facebook is a “virtual” friend list! Friends can still chat on the phone, write letters or email. We don’t have to be online buddies too to know we care about each other. Grow up and get a life!!
