Relationships...according to Facebook

Post by plwk » Fri Oct 05, 2012 9:29 am

“I don’t want to friend you anymore,” said the girl in pigtails, crossing her arms, her face contorted with what I can only describe as disdain...

Once, a friend told me that being friends on Facebook means you are true friends and that if you are not friends with that person on Facebook, it translates that the person is not your friend. And having 1,000 friends on Facebook means you are popular.

or more than enough people want to lampoon you or simply dislike you enough to use your FB to get at you!
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Well I am grateful for Facebook,

In real life i am 1000x more reserved and private and less likely to open up to people.With Facebook i can cut through all the superficial chit chat and and cut straight through what is up and what is going on with my life. I mean i tend to get like that even in real life but Online Media just gives you more intimacy and a look at the inner world of your coworkers,bosses and old school friends that other wise would have just been akward.

For example my team leader seemed very cold and bossy and unapproachable but on her FB i realized she is very interested in helping pets and animals and that she gets all my quircky humour no matter how silly it sounds and i would have never guessed that about her if it wasn't because of FB.

Life is preparing for Death
