I am boycotting Facebook for 2 months starting yesterday. Not because I do not like the Facebook concept and not because someone at Facebook offended me. But
if I read one more post that "someone"
... is tired
... is starting their day
.. .is at work
... is setting up at a coffeehouse for the day
... is in a meeting
... is ready for the weekend
I will split in two and never recover.
I may be taking this social part too seriously but I don't think so.
Don't get me wrong. I LOVE social media. I love viral marketing.
But I cannot stand these useless pathetic postings about nothing.
I think Twitter and Facebook should now be used for spreading information. USEFUL information about services, products, news, technology, music, even style, culture and of course, business. BUT NOT that you are tired. That you have a headache. That you just burped ( well THAT is kinda funny ).
I am sorry to sound crabby or whiney. I do not mean to.
It is my choice to go on and read, so I am not blaming anyone specific...well sort of....but mainly I am blaming the culture that these small notes create.
It is back and still about ME ME ME ME ME ME. What about YOU? What about US? What about THEM?
Ok, I am off my soapbox. Facebook, I hope I do not miss you.
