thinking this morning...
Maybe it is the early hour, or the mood...or maybe because the "seed" was planted by something I read, and it stuck.
I found myself doing my routine this morning, grabbing my coffee, stagger to our office, put the TV on very low (news) and logging on to Facebook. So at this early hour, the feed was crawling, I caught up on what I missed last night...and moved on to my blogroll.
I read a post about drama and Facebook. This blogger has a fan page for her art, but usually doesn't check in very much. What caught her attention was the spat between 2 friends, not her personal friends, just FB friends. They were nasty and out to be noticed!!! Can't we all go to a time where we saw that, or had it happen suddenly on our wall? She said she was done with Facebook...I can't say I am ready for that...because the good out weighs the bad for me. But I did "hear" a few things.
These people we collect on FB, are they really our friends? I could weed out a few people I guess, but at one time I had 500 or more friends, some I had no idea who they were. During one of my funks, I did limit my friends to people I really did communicate with. What happens more is, I blab on and on and people read it and don't chat back... And I am guilty of that as well. It is kinda of voyeuristic, really!
We expect people to know of our news or worse yet, we ask a question, on FB, instead of picking up the phone. Then we say "I posted it on FB" as if that is enough... Also guilty of that.
This is all food for thought today for me. I have had miss-communications with some people, and some unpleasant things that hurt my feelings... that is life! And this can be done via text and email too! Technology? Has it left us, not dealing directly to the people we care about? I think I need to think more on this as I go on with my day.
I keep saying one day I will hit that button to delete...maybe a switch to more blogging...for now. Or maybe I won't even give it another thought in a day or so...could go either way!
Have a wonderful day, with NO DRAMA.....xo
