Ok, so I have a facebook account. I like it, it lets me stay in touch with some people I don’t see on a regular basis and communicate and make plans more efficiently.
Most people can handle the concept of facebook. But there are some people who update idiotic shit. They reinforce my already low opinion of them at an hourly rate.
for instance (taken from my facebook page):“So I made a bold move and foolishly tried to use the “gps” on my wizard phone…then I’m told where I’m located does not exist. Obviously now I’m driving aimlessly through this mythically land of …”
Now this particular person obsessively “posts updates” through out the day. I can’t recall anything posted by this person that’s been life altering to anyone. There are a few more people who let everyone know that they’re “feeling … uhm … ok.” Really? You thought that all 237 “friends” you have are dying to know that you’re “feeling … uhm … ok”?
Are people really that egocentric that they have to post up on EVERYTHING they’re doing as if their word keeps the sky from crashing down on us? They talk about bodybuilders being narcissists; I have a few friends from here on facebook and they don’t post HALF as much useless shit as my non-TN friends. And we’re supposed to be the narcissists?
And twitter. Don’t get me started on twitter. That website is about 99% useless trash. That’s a fucking narcissists DREAM. Let’s see how much useless drivel I can do in a day, post about it, and see what mindless losers will “follow” me.
Seriously, get over yourselves for a second, stop posting about the mocha-capa-latte frappechino dipped biscotti that was so amazing you just to rave about to the 1,000,000,000 teenage zombies that are so afraid of the sun that they waste their day watching Hills reruns on demand (thanks GB), texting their friends how fab LC’s hair looks, how much sugar flavored shit alcohol they drank last night and how high their tolerance is, and reading “twits” posted by the celebutwat that’s the most “in” and the moment.
I might be being a bit too critical. Like I said earlier facebook and twitter do have their good points. I mean the majority of the media coverage we have from Iran right now isn’t coming from the on-the-ground in the thick of the riot reporting but from actual demonstrators twittering their fucking heads off until the local fascists kick in their door and beat them until their heads actually fall off. But the use of this media is too few an far between for me to think it’s actually beneficial to the betterment of human society.
I don’t know, maybe I’m just ranting to rant. Could be. Maybe I should just shut the fuck up and think of something better. I think I’ll do just that, but first I’m going to watch a bootleg pirated copy of The Hangover. I’ll tweet you what I think of it.
