Dear family and friends on Facebook,
Please don’t take what I say to heart ,actually please do take what I am about to say to heart, but please don’t get ticked off about it.
I have a list (sorry compulsive list maker) of behavior I am concerned about. Okay it is annoying the heck out of me, sorry.
I love all of my family and my friends on my list, but below is some behavior I cannot begin to understand the why of?
- Sharing your sex life
Honestly do you want the whole family in on this? Wouldn’t an exclusive website such as weshareaoursexlife.com, be a better place for that than Facebook?
Are you aware some of us could care less and some of us are getting creeped out? Since some of us are closely related, I think you should be grateful for that!
I mean, do you want dear ol’ Uncle Pervy, the one with the naked ladies tattooed on both arms, both legs and across his forehead, knowing about the hot time you just had with your wife?
Do you want him downloading and distributing the pictures you so willingly shared on your FB page? The ones of your undergarments hanging from the chandelier? Thinking Lord knows what and sharing with who the hell knows? Is this a turn on? If so, than Ewww!
2.Endless political crap!
I have my views about hot topics same as everyone, but why do some of you feel the need to post 70 political images in a row?
Are you changing your mind anytime soon? Are your opponents’ going to change theirs?
If I see one more gun control related item on either side, think I will …ignore it.
That is what happens after the third political image in a row, we just keep on scrolling until the cute kitten image appears.
3.YOU *!@!# @!
All families have problems and need to talk things out. Can I be so bold as to suggest that Facebook really ain’t the best venue for family arguments?
Do you want everyone to know about how Cousin Elmer did you wrong?
Do you want Cousin Elmer to know how you really feel about him and do you want him to know you just shared your feelings with the 100, and whatever, people on your friend’s list?
Could get kinda awkward at the next family reunion, don’t you think?
The phone is still in existence and it is a heck of a lot more private.
4. Sharing questionable items.
What you and your friends find funny, may not be what the good reverend finds amusing.
I’m not telling you what to do, just wondering at the wisdom of publicly sharing: “I like to do naughty stuff ( use your imagination, this is a pg blog) with cheeze whiz”, when you know that sweet Aunt Tillie is on your friends list. Not to mention the good reverend.
There is a private option for those who share the same disturbing sense of humor.And you won’t have Aunt Tillie trying to exercise the demons from you, next time you visit. Nor will the good reverend feel the need to excommunicate you.
I love getting family updates and photos of fully clothed family members, it is great way to keep in touch. What do you like about social media? What do you hate?
