Here's some of the Facebook status that I really can't stand.
1. The "Don't Ask"
"Today I had a bad day, don't ask."
"OMG... How can this bitch do this? blah blah blah, Don't ask"
"Check-In at Changi Hospital, Don't ask"
Don't want people to ask, don't upload share lah! Say half, half?
2. The "TAG EVERYBARDI!!"
Yes, you lost some weight, you want to upload and show off and I am fine with it but I do not see the need to tag everyone. I know you are selling your new product and you really wish to get some attention and I would love to help a new business too but tagging me to silly things that has no relation to me is seriously irritating. Can you imagine me going into coffin selling business and start tagging you because I need business too? Go figure it out!
3. The "Temasek Reviewer" or "Facebook politician"
The kind of guys that always share everything about politics and for some reason it is always negative. It is always against the gahment and super extreme. Basically everything also can blame gahment. I am not the most patriotic one but I do believe there are some things that shouldn't be discussed on Facebook especially when there really ain't going to be any result.
4. The "This is my Facebook account. I can say anything I want" aka "You don't like you unfriend me lor" aka "Lack of boundary sharer"
Those that really goes over the boundary, share something too personal, share things too disgusting etc and when asked about it they get offended and very quickly comes a 2nd post that say things like that. "You don't like you unfriend me lor."
5. The "Grave Digger"
I guess there will always be articles that is worth sharing even after some time but sharing news articles that are like 3 years old and talk about it and scrutinise it again just doesn't makes a lot of sense. The funny thing is that a lot of readers would not even noticed the date!
6. The "My Life is the only way of life"
"This post is for my EMPLOYEE friends.
But employees reading this, you'll totally get what i'm saying. Cos i was an employee once. I know what it's like. I know what you're going through day in, day out. I know.
And i hated it. Everyday, every moment. It was hellish. Some of you may feel the same...
...., all things considered, I’ve been relatively successful. I’m easily making at least 6-7 times what I was getting as an employee. I have the freedom to plan my own time. I can turn down clients if I want to. I’m the master of my own destiny.
No doubt it is pretty interesting and inspiring to listen to some real life motivational post to start a day but sometimes it just cross the line when your tone is all about you, you and you. Besides your life, there are many way to live a life. There is no "better" way of life. It's not over till it is over. I do not see the need to make everyone change their lives because you think you are in what way more superior and more importantly, as you are stroking your own ego, do spare a thought that you do not wish to put someone down. That also explains why not every "successful" person can become a motivational speaker because being successful or not is not up to one self to determine that. Some glory and recognition need to be given, not created.
I guess nobody went through a school to learn what is right or wrong about social media and we can't blame people who has a little less sense when it comes to things like this. We can argue that there is no right or wrong and very possibly it is just me. I guess everyone has their own different ways of getting attention from others and I guess we are all guilty about it. Some uses laughter while other uses tears whichever works for them to get the attention we want. If you don't like you don't read lah! :p
