I’ve written about my Facebook pet peeves here and here. But I’ve noticed a new trend has emerged that has gotten so out of hand that I’ve even gone so far as to delete the Facebook app from my phone.
I don’t want to make light of other people’s problems, but taking everyday gripes to Facebook needs to stop. There seems to be a trend of using Facebook as an elephant graveyard for every little thing that bothers you throughout the day. “Have a negative thought? Post it as your Facebook status!” I believe that negativity breeds negativity. One person writes an update complaining about the weather. Someone comments in agreement. Another person tries to one-up with a complaint about their weather. Next status: “I’m soooo tired.” Comment: “You think YOU’RE tired!” And so on and so forth.
My favourite complaint?
Complaining about Facebook…on Facebook.
Instead of using Facebook as a dumping ground for unhappiness, can we try to share more uplifting, positive missives on the ‘book? And that’s my rant.
