Dear Every Person:
Sometimes I love Facebook. Sometimes, I hate Facebook. It’s fun to read up on what everyone (some of whom I haven’t talked to for 15 years) is up to, and all mostly before I get out of bed in the morning. I must admit, thought, that it gets old pretty quickly to read posts by “friends” that are constantly tooting their own horn, though, right?! Can I get an Amen? We are all just trying to live life, and no one’s life is 100% Robin Leach’s Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.
I mean, I get it. You want people to think that you’ve got it all figured out. That your life is the best life. But really? All you are doing is turning people off. A lot.
People, all I’m asking is for you to consider a couple of things before you post:
a) Would you say this same thing live and in person?
b) If someone else posted the same thing would you consider them “douche-y”?
c) Just be authentic. It works every time.
Oh, and don’t even get me started on the peeps that take pictures of unsuspecting people only to post and rip them to shreds. There is a special place in hell for people like that.
