I don’t like facebook. I think Facebook is the new spam. In fact, I think most of social media is a waste of time.
Twitter? I just don’t get twitter. At all.
I’ve often thought about completely deleting my facebook account. The only thing that stops me is I know that everyone else is using it. It’s kind of like, if you’re the only person with a fax machine, the fax machine is worthless. Who are you going to fax? But if EVERYONE else has a fax machine and uses it to communicate, and you don’t have one, you’re missing out.
Am I missing out? I keep a very basic, rudimentary presence on facebook. I’m just barely there. I see other people post pictures all the time and update their status all the time and even put their work schedules on there for everyone to see.
I’ve never thought much of Facebook, in fact, I’ve always kind of looked down on it. With a few exceptions, I think most of the posts people put on there are because they are fishing for compliments or fishing for sympathy.
But I might be wrong. Facebook might be a great way for my friends to know me better. Facebook might be an awesome tool for making plans or getting a bunch of people in the same place at the same time. Facebook might actually be SOCIAL-media. It might make me and my life better. Maybe facebook isn’t spam?
I wouldn’t know because maybe I’ve never given facebook it’s fair shot.
For the next seven days I am going to use the living shit out of facebook. I’ll post my status all the time. I’ll post pictures. I’m gonna use the hell out of it.
