Welcome to my Blog. A place that encourages Zen with a little mix of Fiesty!

FACEBOOK, who cares? I Don't.

You don't have a Facebook? Your not on Facebook? OMG!!!!

NO! I don't and I don't feel I am missing anything so don't feel bad for me, thank you.

This is what I had to say to a woman the other day, she almost fell off her chair. She proceeded to say how she was addicted to Facebook, couldn't live without it.
Really now? Well how sad I am for you.

Two sides to every story. I had a Facebook account over three (3) years ago. I reconnected with loads of old H.S. friends, some family and even made new friends.
That is great and that is fun for many but for ME it wasn't.
After a while I grew tired of the pictures at the bar or at the pool or of the nails.
I grew tired of the bashing of the "other" so called friends, of the over share of their personal lives and all the drama as it played out on every feed.
I grew tired of the countless status updates that would pop up.

Now if your on Facebook to build a network for your business, or to actually reconnect with loved ones and build from there, wonderful. If your intent is to stay close to those that you care about but don't live near you, great. If it brings about actual reunions then more blessings to you. That is an awesome reason to have Facebook but if you are there to just follow others while they live their lives than heck noooooo!

Facebook taught me I cherish connection, I enjoy human contact and hearing actual voices. I learned I enjoy reunions but not over a screen. I learned I enjoy making plans to make physical visits when and where possible.
Again I say two sides. I am very well aware that some physical connections are just not possible for some. I also respect the numerous uses that Facebook provides I just question some peoples honest intent in using it. I respect and support the generous information it provides on a large scheme on a daily and I would never exclude any means of gathering or giving information. I just like to bring a different perspective to any table.

I also don't understand why some businesses, sites and blogs only allow you to like or follow via Facebook. 
I mean honestly, why cut off those that choose not to go that route? Options people, options. 
If I would like to try a free sample of your product I can only sign up via Facebook? If you wrote a great piece on topic that caught my attention, I can only visit you on Facebook? smh..........

What do you think? Did I present a fair observation or did it come across as one sided? 

Boys go through this too

Married or Single?
