Facebook is more than a social media today, a fact that none are oblivious to. Most of them wouldn’t be able to breathe easily if denied the access to their facebook account. And, it’s just my speculation, but it wouldn’t entirely be wrong to say that the biggest treasure for these guys would be the password to somebody else’s account.
Yes, this is the generation who wouldn’t break a sweat while they fritter away hours on fb, but then, they would readily ransack their brain , only to save milliseconds by eluding from the trouble to write complete words.
Well, that’s how one is supposed to chat, now aren’t they? WTF, brb, ttyl, sup, sth, sb, tc, sd, gn, gm…..
Well, a few are understandable, but then there are guys who seem to have completely forgotten that a word Language does exists. For every random thing be it- happiness, amazing, sad, surprising, or pathetic (like them) all they have to say is- LOL, ROFL.
These guys can be seen everywhere with their LMAO’s in comments, status and what not. Everywhere and in every damn thing on FB.
Adding to the cause, we find smileys that eradicate what lil (little n incomplete) words are used. These help deliver the expression and saves loads of time. Stickers have also merrily joined the group. Pic in comments aren’t lagging behind either.
Write a complete sentence with right punctuation, embellishing it with the mandatory periods and occasional verbs only to express your thoughts, and you will be considered either a freak who has just blown his minds off or a retard who needs to attend chatting sessions for Christ’s sake.
Well, I am no different but I still have all my senses the last time I checked (and, they are working just fine, in case you are worried) and I don’t just LOL and ROFL at Facebook. I use them too but when they are actually needed.
Further, I am no regular active user on Facebook like many others, who never get tired scrolling down their wall (and god knows what they expect down the lane. It isn’t like the screen is going to throw off a lottery of 1 crore or pizzas out)
And, did I forget it? My bad. These are the guys who’ve changed the meaning of like- the like option on Facebook.
It doesn’t anymore represents that you like the post, status or anything instead it is their way of telling that so called status, pic, or any damn thing you can find on Facebook, is posted by a friend that happens to be more than their Facebook friend- a friend they know for real (and are actually friends with).
Facebook is a lot many things than that and it actually is wonderful. It has many advantages and the prominent and paramount is- connections you make (I would’ve lost many wonderful persons if not for Facebook). It definitely is a lot more than what people (most of them) have come to take it as, and sadly, you can’t beat senses into any of those guys, not happening any time soon.
