Face it or Facebook it?

Do you face your problems or Facebook them? How many of you put your daily problems on Facebook?  We are all guilty of writing something…   It’s very easy to get caught up in the day-to-day and not realize that you are posting comments that should be private. I’m not talking about posting of having a bad day. The traffic and weather suck.  Dolphins lost again?  You get the idea…

I am talking about the back and forth between foes, the inability to pay your bills, marital problems etc..  There are certain issues that should be left unspoken.  None the less, if you read a comment that strikes your curiosity – should you ask?  Sometimes the person is venting and just want people to listen, they are not asking for unsolicited advice. #truth.

I have a friend who changed her marital status from married to divorce. Can you imagine all the comments she got? Well after many comments from concerned friends her reply was simple. “It’s not the end of the world people. Geeeezz”  You’re right, it isn’t the end of the world but when one day you’re in love (We think you are) and the next day the status is changed, of course there is going to be some feedback.  Especially from your friends.  Wouldn’t you agree?  Whether it’s good or bad criticism be prepared for the comments.

Have you ever read a status and thought “Who is she/he talking about?” “Is he/she talking about me?”

Never assume someone is talking about you unless you’re 100% sure.  Don’t start a word war on Facebook. Send them a private message and just ask.   If he or she isn’t worth the trouble then un-friend them.  You don’t need jealous, envious, hateful friends looking at your timeline.  Some people hide behind their words because they lack the courage to confront you in person.  To be honest, it’s not worth wasting your time.  People do change!

At the end of the day…

You have the right to air all your dirty laundry on-line if you want but be prepared for the good and bad comments.   Just keep in mind that not everyone cares.

Happy networking! 😉

Until tomorrow… Peace & Love xoxo

  1. There are a multitude of subleties of human communication that are lost when relying solely on written communication.A wink, a smile, or a kiss cannot be duplicated on a keyboard! Nowadays, people rely on texting, email and Facebook more than they engage in face to face conversation. It is entirely possible to go out, buy groceries, go to the ATM and mail a letter (whats that?) without requiring any verbal exchange with another human being.

    I guess my overall point is, people are beginning to lose the ability to communicate with others face to face. Facebook is a poor replacement for human interaction.

    There are no real faces, or books, on Facebook. Just images on a screen.
