OK, we’re all thinking it but nobody is saying it, so I will. If I ever write something on your Facebook wall and you don’t respond I will defriend you. No, that’s not “a little extreme”. Some people think that you’re not friends in real life if you’re not friends on Facebook, and my action to defriend you will honor that. Real friends respond. Period.
Or what, are you just adding friends to be a cool cat in a virtual world that feels so real? OK, we’ll see what happens at your funeral with your 1,239 Facebook “friends”. Maybe your mom can set up 1,239 computer screens with the mug shot of all your so called Facebook friends. But guess what? My pretty Latino face won’t be there! Or what, are you collecting friends like a kid collects Pokemon cards? You gotta “catch ’em all”? As an adult, that is weak sauce.
Some of you have even blocked or removed the option to write on your wall! Pretty smooth, but that doesn’t keep me from letting you know that I want to talk to you. But Nooooooo, not even a private message gets you to respond. The least you can do is poke me back! I may be super sensitive, but like my little cousin says, you’re a jerkmuffin.
And don’t act like you haven’t been on Facebook in a while and therefore haven’t seen my message. There’s a thing called news-feed on my homepage and it tells me everything you do on Facebook. It’s like stalker-mode on autopilot watching your every move. It even notified me of the uploaded picture where you got wasted and took a dump in your neighbor’s yard with your recent comment of “please delete this picture!”. Again, pretty smooth…
So, in summary, don’t be surprised if I suddenly show up on your side bar as a suggested friend you should add. You may click “add friend” to re-add me, but I may not respond to your friend request. Maybe then you’ll know how it feels…you jerkmuffin.
