The “___ be like” Meme
See my rant on the “Keep Calm” meme for more information. What’s worse is these memes started around October and they’re ALREADY played!
Using Social Media As A Diary
We are all human, and we like to vent from time to time. That’s normal. Some people choose to vent in different ways. Some people call or text a friend. Others will use social media. Facebook, to me, has become an open diary for many people. They will tell you about their entire life and all the negativity that comes with it. They will slander ex lovers, talk about their “haters,” and every other personal issue they have. Far be it from me to tell someone how to use social media, but the sh*t gets real annoying after a while. You tend to wonder if these people have any real friends who will tell them to chill or to take it offline. As therapeutic as it might be for some, the rest of us have no interest in seeing your low budget version of “General Hospital” play out on our timelines!
Begging Celebrities To Acknowledge You
This is my #1 Pet Peeve on social media. People will create social media accounts just to interact with famous people and beg for their recognition. “Yo @Jay-Z! I just got paid on Saturday can I get a RT?!” “Hey @Kim K! I LOVE your show can you like this status?!?!” How pathetic can you be?! Is getting mentioned by a celeb a status symbol around the water cooler at work? Do you have a fetish for famous people saying your name or showing that they do see your message and “care” about what you say? You guys care too much and there has to be a deeper meaning to life. It’s cool when someone famous you admire mentions you. It’s even cooler when it happens ORGANICALLY.
What do you think should be left in 2012?
2013 will be my year until 12/31 when I rinse and repeat…
