My sister recently posted something on Facebook that really got me thinking. I thought I’d share the link with you all. (Obviously, it’s about Facebook!)
I already went a deleted some pictures from Facebook from YEARS ago that I felt were inappropriate. But I’m also thinking of doing a little spring cleaning on my friend list. There are SO many people on my “friend” list that use HORRIBLE language and posts statuses that would make Lady Gaga blush.
Also – while I’m on my soapbox – Let’s discuss having arguments on Facebook. Let’s all just stop doing that. I am SO tired of seeing arguments going on on a Facebook status update or wall post. It’s ridiculous. If you need to talk to someone about something they’ve written please just call them. Hashing things out over Facebook is just not a good idea. Speaking of writing things that make people want to call you – don’t do that either. Don’t complain about our President just to purposely start a debate. It’s pointless. No one’s mind will be changed from a Facebook argument. Kindness goes a long way. Keep Facebook lighthearted, people. It’s fine to post little tidbits about your day, cute quotes, etc. etc. But I am SO tired of reading people talk about how they just went and had sex with their boyfriend on the side of the road (yep…I actually read that...defriend) It’s totally inappropriate.
I’m the world’s worst about complaining on Facebook. I have to admit that I have posted complaints about Amelia’s reflux and constant screaming as status updates. But honestly – no one wants to read about my complaints. Instead, I’m going to try to leave positive comments. If nothing else, I’ll ask for prayers for her while she struggles with this. That will do much more good than simply complaining. Thanks for reading my rant.
Just to keep this post happy --
