Are you alive????💀
Where are you? No updates & no pics from you since long….👻👻
Is everything Ok? You’re always offline on Fb messenger.😷😷
These kind of questions are often asked by my friends who are connected through Facebook but not through What’s App . When you are away or have taken break from social networking sites then friends assume things differently.🤔🤔 I have only FB account (no other social media accounts)which I used very very rarely .
Why is it hard for people to believe that life can be survived & enjoyed without social media. It’s not like that I hate Fb or I am anti social , fb is powerful platform to connect with friends , family & it has numerous positive aspects. But irrelevant posts, negativity, insensitive jokes, crazy forwards, oversharing are few things which kept me away from it . There are few things you might find weird & crazy 😛😛 which made me realized that Fbing is not my cup of tea.🙈
I fear that the moment I logged in, flood of notification would crash down my mobile 📜💣 & piles of old posts would trapped me inside to suffocation . And one more thing few friend requests will put so much strain on my tiny brain to recall where I met that person 🤔 So to save my mobile & myself I always keep distance from it .🙅🙅
I admired people’s choice & patience when they upload 100s of pictures in one go. I’m very choosy & impatient in uploading pics & so you’ll see hardly any pics on my timeline. 😷😷.
Many friends had asked pics of twins when they were born. I still remember one of my friend ‘s message ” are you going to upload pics of your kids or are you directly inviting us to their marriage” .😡😡 Hmmm …finally pics were online but don’t expect that early I posted few pics when twins turned 7months & those were the last pics on my timeline .😎😎 So friends !! you know now why my timeline is empty & if you ask twins preschool pics & you might expect in their college life.🤗🤗
When someone is on holiday & updating every single detail & pic of the tour (except where they peed & pooped) 🤧🤧 . Declaring your whereabouts is a good practice actually so that we can easily track you down if you lost in between hotel gate to hotel room.👀🕵
Few disciplined friends who always announce every(short/ long) airport check in🛫 & checkout🛬 on fb. By doing this they are assuring everyone that they have boarded the right plane 👍& have not taken any mid-air jump out of the plane.🤸🤸😉
( thank God my hubby is not on fb , if he had started like this, his page would have been long display board of arrival & departure 🤑🤑)
Actually I’m not so good at tagging, hashtags, sharing & location .🤕 What if I tagged wrong person/location/hotel I might end up on wrong planet ☻☻ so I’m not doing any of this .😰🤑.
This instant update /fb Live really surprised me.🤔🤔 Why so hurry!! & why you need approval of likes & comments from others 🖒🖒😮😮 in the middle of family dinners, parties , sightseeing, movie, or any program. Social networking can wait but life moments won’t come back again.
One more thing I want to add is little prayer from the heart, kindness, love & generosity in REAL life would help that sick person not number of shares, likes & comments. Spread positive vibes which are much needed in today’s world.
Social networking becomes Bare Necessity
Virtual Presence stashed your Reality.
Life is judged by Status Updates
Likes & comments decide your Happiness Index.
More important is
“What is shown than What is seen”.
There is rush to Upload, Post & Share.
Being with “Others” you’re ignoring
what is “Yours”.
Moments are not Lived but
continuously Captured .
People get closer & smile brightened,
When Selfies speak , “Me-time” is Silenced .
Everything Disappeared off the click.
Smile is missing but Smileys are everywhere
Fake is Adored & images are Filtered.
Fear of missing out everything
Eyes widened with each notification
Active timeline represents Lifeline!
Social Networking turned into
