I used to love using Facebook, but gradually I started to lose interest (socializing). It is a best platform to broadcast your talent and grow your business (I used it for my blog and the results were marvelous). You may delete your other dating apps (or anything that is important) but Facebook.
Let me take you back in 2008-2010. This time Facebook was not as popular as it is now. People didn’t know how to use stickers and but slowly they became a pro. Putting filter photographs was something usually talked about. Making fun about the fact that the person looks way different than what he/she looks in person. It was a place where people wanted to find their long lost friends. Posting on each other’s wall was more common (because people were more open about things).
All this started to change. It has become more like a Fake book. A portfolio a person carries like a resume. So if you want to judge a person or know a person look at his/her Facebook profile. Whether you look good in person or not, is no more an issue. The better the picture, the more your followers are. It is a competition where everybody is competing who can fake better. The long lost friends are still long lost. They are just sitting in your friend list increasing the counts of your friend list and like/comments.
Your like and comments are like precious gold you possess. And some of them are ‘gold diggers’ here. Just kidding ..lol (won’t like your post no matter what, ‘NO I WONT GIVE IT- ITS MINE’ 😂)
We crib about being lonely and then make memes about it. Then we ignore the people who try to contacts us through messages and then make memes about that too. You are judged on basis of where you live, places you have visit. Earlier dreams were to travel the world. Now it has become travel the world to post photos only. Not completely being a able to enjoy the travelling part (may not to true for some).
Then we talk about women and their self-respect. There was this phase when a guy was abusing women’s and people were liking and sharing it 🤷🏻♀️.
I am not against using Facebook. It has best features. I use it myself. Fakeness, I guess is inevitable here (mostly). And we cannot change how things are. I just wonder how things are! A ‘picture of present‘ – of how things have become.
These flowers are fake but have its own beauty.
I don’t want to contradict with what I am saying. But I know fake is a strong word so may be we can use the word – beautify instead 🙂 . And there is no known harm of it 😉 yet.
