Did You Get What You Needed?
Okay...seriously?! You know you live in a new time..when you make friends and then break-up with friends over the internet...I am fairly new to all of this..twitter, facebook, etc..And I know I don't understand social media etiquette...But what is with the "following", "unfollowing", "friend request", "friend block"? Seriously?! We might as well call this time in history plant and flee...plant a seed of friendship then run like hell..or what about my dad can beat up you dad..befriend someone from your past to show them you are one up...then run away. My favorite...Tag to be tagged. Follow someone on twitter because you want them to follow you. And when they fail to grow what you planted, be less than you expected or not boost your insatiable thirst for acknowledgment..you bail. Instead of building a real relationship....which is difficult..you simply wipe them out and erase them from your life. So before you "follow" me or send me a "friend request"...stop and think...Are you sure? Are you sure you even like me? And if you "follow" for a season...I hope when you leave you get what you needed. Much love..from a jaded social media junkie who is loyal to a fault and will not de-friend any of you...(unless you are a psychotic freak)
