Teens, your parents use Facebook, so how cool can that be?
Facebook. Where 50 somethings can continue living their Jr High School persona.
Right on, Ned!! Even High Schooler Syndrome can be tolerated easier than the
squabbling juvenille banter that goes on with those intent on airing their dirty
laundry and every disagreement with foes. Add to that the incessant Selfies and
"look at my last awesome BBQ" and normal folk gotta run outta there.The slobbering obsession of the aging trying to be cool and relevant is
why most adults leave. At least those of us 'with a life' who
don't need to post every 30 minutes... It's just easier to leave the
addiction than Unfriend the obsessives.Too bad such a great idea
became a mirror of our true selves. I may return one day and keep only select
friends and family on- a very select and vetted group of friends and family who
won't dominate the conversation with TMI and vanity.
I'm a parent with adult children and I got suckered into creating my
Facebook page and considering just how banal it became after a while, I closed
out my account and haven't missed it at all going on a year now. Good bye
and good riddance to selfies, friend requests with people that I don't want
to associate with: not in high school and certainly not thirty years later, and
good bye to join me on Farmville or whatever stupid game you are trying to get
me to play.
Life moves in without us...
Dr Thom: I'm guessing you meant "Life move ON without us". However,
sometimes it moves in, whether we want it to or not...
Amen to all! What a vain mirror it has become...
