On the popular social networking site, Facebook, people can let you know their “status”.
Unfortunately, too many people take this way to seriously. Period.
A lot of people try and come up with something clever on their status like, “John Doe is trying to come up with a clever Facebook status”. While played out, I can respect someone who puts effort into being clever.
I can also respect someone who puts little-to-no thought into their status as well. You know, the people who say, “John Doe is.”
Then there are those people who think that their status should be used to put their problems out their for the world to see and to fish for compliments and comments. Just stop. It’s annoying and awkward to see these statuses. What am I supposed to do, console your wall? If you are having real life problems, perhaps you should get off the computer and go talk to a real person. IM doesn’t count either. Honestly, a phone shouldn’t even count. You should meet a person, face-to-face and talk to them.
But, then again, that wouldn’t yield to those people who let you know daily that you’re life does have meaning and that they sent you some stupid Facebook application invite that you’re just going to ignore anyway.
So stop wearing your problems on your sleeve and on your Facebook status.
