There are many ways to be insufferable on Facebook. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m guilty of every single one of these on any given day. I’ll do my time in the corner. There are many ways I love Facebook- connection, seeing friend’s vacation photos (I LOVE THOSE!), baby photos, wedding photos…. quirky weird status updates as long as you aren’t updating every five minutes…..puppy photos. Love those! I like seeing youtube videos of my friends whizzing down ski hills and their babies spitting Gerber out their noses. I don’t mind seeing pictures of your awesome food or cool cocktail and I never get bored of the sunset photos. Snap and post. Go on!
However, so much on Facebook….admittedly is not real. It’s like High School. High School wasn’t real. Sure I went. I was there. But that doesn’t mean it was real.

Personally I don’t like being told by a 20 year old to Eat Pray Love. I didn’t even like it when I read the book and I was told by the thirty year old. Was I the only one who didn’t like that book? Perhaps. However, when it comes down to it who are any of us to question another person’s emotions? Ah-Ha! Like this High School was real!
“You don’t KNOW how I feel!”
There is no one uniform feeling and in a digital world Lost in Translation seems to be more common. Connection is important.
When was the last time that you had a disagreement with someone and you simply picked up the phone OR walked up to them and privately discussed before you texted, emailed, or vaguely Facebooked your status?
Tone can be easily misinterpreted. Or perhaps we have grown to not only accept this, but “like” it. I give you the emoticon!
Did you know that you can say whatever the Fuck you like as long as you end it with a smiling yellow face?
