Hey folks .... here is an email i sent my Brother , who is 5years older than me outlining why i have quit facebook yesterday, and why he should also
consider what the truth of the site is, and the way people conduct themselves.... In my eyes at least , and some supporting news articles also...
I hope you enjoy the read and it helps some folks on here , or even if you want to take some info from it for your own use in sending to people... be
" Some psychology for you to read into.....
I have found myself getting more and more irritated by people on facebook....
Not Yourself, Rach , or any of our family members - new and old.
Here's some background psychology you may like to read i came across.....
Its certainly true , but just for reference ....
What some may think is positive , may actually be doing them the complete opposite...
Daily Mail - Top Facebook irritations
and this also....
Daily Mail - How to lose friends via facebook
Read the links, absorb them, and do some further checks into the stuff.
Its fair to say ... always consider the background of what may seems like a purely innocent post... as it may actually begin to drive others away.
There are other platforms to be used in communication between friends , family , potential customers and converts .
Just because many people do something... doesn’t make it right!!!
I despise this whole overly proud parent thing... makes me sick , and I’m just glad facebook wasn’t about when i was a kid , as i don’t want to
be broadcast into 100 , 200 , 500 ,2000 peoples in-box and news-line on any given day - most days for the majority of people.
Diaries are made to keep track of behind the scene stuff you get up-to... and diaries are supposed to be private , unless you decide to write a book
or something about your achievements.
What also made me mad was Sarah's (that’s Scott, and My Sister) reply to my facebook closure , she said - "Since I don't email, that's fine! Have a
good life!" What the #!!! she cant live or operate , or even speak with family ever again without the website... that’s sad! so bloody sad! ,
facebook is impersonal , family is personal , hence ... pick up the bloody phone , speak at least twice a week with each other on the thing, send a
letter , a postcard whatever!!! Wireless communication has been going on across the Atlantic since 1901, UK to America, and other means of letter etc
also a very long similar time-frame. So this has gone on and been possible for over 100 years , yet my Sister is unable to speak to me EVER AGAIN
without facebook!!! HAHAHA have i really got this right????... I’ve not had a single private correspondence from Sarah in 6+ months total minimum
say 1 or 2 in the past year and a half, if I'm lucky...., what have i lost not having facebook???? oh yeah , she cant see what I'm doing in my day to
day activities , but she never even contacts me through it anyway.... massively impersonal for a supposed personal family... hmmmm or has that changed
??? is family now in the public domain for all to point laugh love or scrutinise?? well it seems so, what with this type of family matter and all
proud parents etc... wanting to get a piece of attention from as many people that don’t give a damn about it as possible.... these people don’t
like the posts they like.... they just feel the need to like their friends posts.... as a duty......lol..... having 50 likes on a post is nothing...
its just purely sad unadulterated attention seeking or approval seeking....
Only weak people need or seek attention and approval!!!!!
And i for one am not weak!! , yes...i may have been down at times and like to have a friend to turn to... facebook is not a friend and broadcasting
yourself is not a friend inducing act either... but most people on the facebook site are however weak , they need a shepherd , they need guidance ,
they need approval , they need attention... this doesn’t make them a celebrity , it just makes them attention seekers in a small, close knit group
of people who read facebook religiously like it is some kind of messiah website - when the truth is - IT'S NOT!!
Take this information how you want ...
You're a psychologist after-all.... and this should make sense to you!!!
I hope this read has been somewhat informative, and may help others see the light, in the negativity of facebook.
(Not that my fellow abovetopsecret'ers dont already know this stuff!!)
