“Like if you’re on facebook right now.” “Like if you love jesus.” “Like if you don’t like cancer.” “Like if you hate homework.” “Like if you breathe in air.” “Reshare if you love god, in 120 seconds he will do you a favor.” “Share in 2 seconds and you’ll get a surprise!” Are you noticing a trend? Any sense of repetition? Any apparent appeals being tossed around? Just wondering if I’m the only one who sees this. Because there is a trend, and it really needs to stop. But what I just wrote is practically the same level of illogical garbage that is a person’s desperate attempt to get “likes” or “subscribers.”

It’s just as ridiculous as way back when (6 months ago) people would like every waking facebook page that popped up.

That’s what I miss about the old facebook; before it was overrun by a desperate few. I actually liked when facebook told a person’s favorite stories. I liked when people would write their utmost inner feelings and share them with the world, no matter how desperate for attention it was. I liked it when a status meant what the definition of the word actually meant; a state of affairs. But I don’t like where it’s headed.
