Facebook: Philosophical


Facebook Love


If I read one more article moaning about how people use Facebook (and blogs) to brag about their picture perfect lives, I’m gonna…, well, I’m not sure what I’m going to do, but it’s going to get ranty!

It’s an odd day for me today; details; but Facebook has actually made me smile today more than it has in weeks. There have been a couple of weddings, some baby photos (yes, I’m not usually a fan), lots of people enjoying the bank holiday weekend and some people just sitting about not doing much apart from sharing that information on Facebook. There have been photos, links and some Facebook offers too, which I’m really intrigued about, plus some engagement on our company Facebook page, which I’m always a little chuffed by.

I’m not going to begrudge anyone who wants to share something with their friends or whoever they’ve chosen to connect with via Facebook if it’s made them happy, laugh or just think. Aren’t they the best bits?

Everything that sucks and hurts and makes you sad won’t be forgotten, but what does sharing it via Facebook do? Make others feel better about something that they’re missing?

Let’s all just be a little cheerier that people we know or people we knew are doing some awesome stuff (that maybe makes us a little jealous, but kind of inspires us too) and share some awesome stuff ourselves.

Not sold? Well, their your friends. You can still hide their updates of delete them – misery guts!

    This is so funny – I was just thinking about this exact same thing, and how sometimes I get way too upset about and/or intrigued by what’s going on in other people’s lives instead of sharing what’s going on in mine! Some days it’s better than others, but I’m glad to know it’s not just me.

      Thanks for letting me know you feel the same, Jess. I’ve had a pretty bad day, but I’m glad other people’s have been better than mine. It reaffirms my faith that better things will come along.
