Interesting article. What do you think?

 ~Geektastic~ (atroskity) | 3207 comments That is depressing. Now I can add social networking to the list of things that make my life seem pointless, along with my resume and my credit history.

Nice

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I think we should talk about Amber's resume, credit history, and social networking all at once, just to get them out of the way.

You know how facebook now sometimes shows your old statuses (stati) on the side of the page sometimes? That's always concurrently weird and interesting.

yes. amusing and depressing at times. I love seeing how much I was just the same as I am now back in 2008, 2009, and 2010.

I'm not quite sure how to interpret this remark...

Don't pay any attention to him. He just wants the info for his stalker spreadsheet.

A year and a half later I'd like to repeat my sentiment from msg 5. It really boggles my grey matter that I've been posting my every inanity in this group for FIVE years.

Félix (habitseven) | 23974 comments I love it. Go 'round again.

Aliyah | 368 comments I don't think so. Not at all. But I will admit that I comment the most on this group.


message 12: by Aliyah (new)

Aliyah | 368 comments I think this applies to people who list their entire daily activities on Twitter and Facebook. I am a compulsive cyber stalker, and the most cheesy stuff I came across are people who take "selfies" (i.e. taking photos of themselves) and use excessive quotes and instagram shots of just about anything (the most common being food).

This is sometimes includes pics of their phones. Other people tend to give personal narratives of being friendzoned, rejected at parties/clubs or breakups... its really not necessary.

Aliyah | 368 comments It's also disturbing how common it is.


message 14: by Amelia (new)

Amelia My (2nd) cousin (in her 20's) is always taking pictures of herself and posting them to facebook...usually in a state of undress I find disturbing. I worry she has no self respect.

And, isn't facebook kind of regulated as far as content? Because, that same cousin posted (or re-posted some one else's) a pic of some girl giving a guy a blowjob. Again, it was a little surprising in my newsfeed.

My step son does it a lot as well, they're always dark and scowly and brooding. He is also in his 20's. Is it a generational thing? Because, my friends my own age don't do it. They're more likely to post pics of their food though...
