30 minutes on Facebook

The day is going to be hectic. Let me begin it by going through my Friends’ updates on Facebook. That’ll make me happy. 

30 minutes spent on Facebook:

News link shared by a “Friend”. Read the title. Can’t read more. Like.

34 Photos of a Friend and family vacationing in a beautiful place I will never visit in my life. Damn. Some people have everything. Like.

Philosophical update from a Friend. Read. Didn’t understand. Must be something very very profound or clever. Worth a Like.

Profile update of a Friend who updates profile three times a week. Not again! Self-absorbed. Self-something. Boring! It’s time I updated my profile picture. Comment: You look cute.

Status update from a Friend who has a million Friends on Facebook. He has updated three minutes ago, and there are already 247 Likes and 30 comments. Miniature celebrity. He could do without my Like or comment. Though I should admit, what he says does make sense. Ugh. 

Political mud slinging from this party to that. Nice. Pass.

Hilarious update from a Friend. Chuckle, chuckle. Clever guy. Like.

Fanatical religious update. Why did I make this person my ‘Friend’ on Facebook, again? Can’t remember. Pass.

Blog from a Friend who blogs twice a week. There she goes again. Who does she think she is? I had Liked her post last week. I will skip this time.

Big discussion going on about the upcoming elections and the top parties. Eeek. I hate politics. I hate these people who taint my wall with politics. Scroll down.

Suggested Post. Facebook, please. You know everything about me. Don’t you know I can’t stand advertisements?

Someone has published a book or made a movie or done something creative. Damn, Damn. I am here too, God. Have you forgotten? Like, dammit. Like. Like. Like.

Friend has posted picture of his daughter winning an award. Cute kid. Brilliant. Like. Wish there was a better word than ‘Like’. ‘Delighted’, perhaps. Or ‘Excited’. Or even, ‘Proud of You’?

‘Friend’ whom I barely remember bought a new car. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Great news. Who cares?

Fanatic Friend has posted something offensive again. Get a life, dammit.

Scattered a few comments here and there, I hope I got them all at the right places: Beautiful. Wow. Cute. Thank you. Welcome. All the Best. Really? Great Job.

Damn. Why does everyone have such exciting lives, while I just sit here hitting Likes, Waiting?

Let me go post some brilliantly stupid, philosophical nonsense. Hah. Type, type, delete, type, edit, type.

Hit by a wave of depression.
Close Window.

Let me get back to my @#$%# work.

    Facebook is a fake book. These are those days when people buy SUVs outisde their financial abilities only to update on facebook. It will be time till everyone understands that these are not even snapshots of the lives these people live. It is just something we like to show.

    Whenever I see people on the road (or malls or anywhere) taking pictures of each other, I immediately think they are going to post it to FB.

    I don't know if that would be a good idea – that might lead to the third World War or something!!

    Facebook is now becoming a Fatebook.
    We don't need to consider others. We live our life and find happiness in our lives.

    hahah Funny observations … someone correctly said, we are the Generation Y's FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out).
