I don’t know about you but I’d love to deactivate my facebook. Back in 2007/8 it was new and cool. But enter every man and his dog including your parents and all distant relatives and the cool aspect of Facebook is gone.
The bit that stops me hitting the deactivate button is the entertainment it provides. Those trainwrecks you can see coming, those uneducated rants and the wish you could unsee selfies.
The entertainment value is still too high. I wish I didn’t want to be entertained by that girl I used to know who posts about every single thing; but it’s amusing and a conversation topic when friends get together in the real world.
There’s one thing I can’t figure out though, do people write these status updates as cries for attention, unaware that everyone is diagnosing them? The conclusion I’ve come to is that there’s far more narcissists than I ever thought I knew.
