Ok, this one mightget me in a little trouble, but that's okay...I can take it. So, I have some family, friends and associates on social media who are consistently ranting and raving about people being well...social. I just don't get it! All through out my feed, every single day, there are these posts of "I hate chain messages!" "I'm sick of people posting their kids pics!" "If I get tagged in one more scripture!" "I'm so tired of these disrespectful memes!" and so on and so forth. What I don't get is....If they bother you so much, how about you just scroll past it or quite simply un-follow/unfriend them all together.
Because, what you may not realize is that your five to seven day tent revival rant regarding these things you do not like is JUST as annoying! And WTH is with these warnings! "If I get one more I'm going to start blocking people" "If I get tagged again I will unfriend you." When you know very well that, you will be tagged, chain messaged, see more posts and so on. Don't warn...just do! Cause guess what, this is what some individuals may consider BEING SOCIAL ON SOCIAL MEDIA. All of your ridiculous innuendos don't make any sense either... "I'm trying to be nice," "I'm not trying to hurt any ones feelings but..." "LBVS" and my personal favorite "sorry not sorry." Just so you know friends, family and associates these are all lies! You knew prior to saying/typing these comments that; you're not being nice (you may be saying what you want to say nicely, but the act is still unkind), that what you have typed and threatened is definitely hurtful, let's be honest majority of the time we are either laughing or very serious, but not both at the same time, and if you truly mean what you have put out there in social media land then there is no way you're really sorry...period. In cases such as this, truly mean what you say! 'Cause you never know how someone else will take/receive what you're typing/saying. Be prepared for the outcome of your actions.
Here's the thing, I am not a fan of some of these postings either. However, when I see them I simply move on! I'm not going to threaten 72 year Aunt Mable (*fictional* this is an example...I do not believe I have an Aunt Mable lolz), I'm not going to throw an irritated hissy fit, or spew out stupid annoying comments about something that I may consider stupid and annoying. Here is why, fictional Aunt Mable may not even know what she is doing (lmbo), some of my friends other friends may actually enjoy all of their kiddy/family pics, I know how to hide/delete & block disrespectful and inappropriate memes/videos and some of those scriptures are actually very comforting at times. It is my page to do as I see fit, just like it is their page to do what they like as well. Who are you to tell them any different. I just don't see how something so minimal in life caninfuriate people so much, to the point that they must daily write a brief leaflet on how irritated, pissed off and annoyed they are. Maybe I have too much of a life outside of social media to be affected or I just don't have enough friends, family and associates doing it to me as often to be truly bothered; either way, when it all boils down I just don't care enough to bethat bothered by a post! And of course it is yourpage to do as you wish. Just know, that what you may feel is annoying, others may see differently and when you express how annoyed you are, you run the risk of putting yourself on the same level of being just as annoying.
Do they have to tag you in on every post? No. But, have you considered they do because you're supposedto be friends and they may feel you would actually like and/or benefit from these posts? (If you're getting tagged from people who are not your friends why did you except their friend request in the first place?!... that's on you!) Do they have to include you in the chain messages? No. But, maybe they do because they truly believe in the blessing and/or outcome of forwarding the message further and feel you would benefit by doing the same. Have you ever shared a room with someone who did not share your beliefs? I mean really, who are they hurting?! Honestly, how often do you even see these people face to face anyway? And when you do, I doubt that you are likely to bring up their frequent tagging, chain messaging and/or posts (although you may be thinking it very loudly in your mind lolz). So, maybe we should just let them be is all I'm saying. Whelp, that's it. I just had to put that out there. It's my opinion and I'm sticking to ithahahahahahahaha!
Here are a few suggestions on how to fix this problem... Hope it helps lmbo!
