Quite often I’ve stated, both in “real life” and online, that I’m so fed up with Facebook! Even tried to leave two times, but I’m still there. Used to think that I really disliked Facebook, but on second thought, it’s what people do with it that irks me the most … perhaps not so much Facebook itself [that’s for another post].
One thing that gets my goat is when the attention seekers post stuff like this: «I can’t take it any longer … » or «Today will be a sad day for many people … ». Then all their friends come in, sort of worried, asking what’s going on, but the attention seeker never comes back to explain. There’s even a name for this phenomenon online, but I forget.
I know, I know … like I’ve said so many times before; I should just scroll by and not allow myself to be bothered with this crap, but certain days it’s hard. Especially when they sound like they’re suicidal. In one case, the other day, I thought someone had died and I’d missed it, so I kept scrolling back in her stream but there was nothing.
We all want attention — that’s only normal, but I, for one, wouldn’t like it to come from fake posts in Facebook.
Maybe the guy in the photo is an attention seeker too: “Look at ME … my beautiful green head and my wings!” 😊
