Today is Facebook 11th Anniversary.
Facebook launched on February 4, 2004 as “thefacebook.com” and became an overwhelming hit.
I am not signed-up for Facebook”
When Facebook first got started I had weekly invitations to be part of this online collective gathering. However, I declined each invitation, skeptical about if its appeal was all that it was being reported being.
Last year, I started to sign-up for Facebook but for no other reason as for business and this blog. However, I chose to abandon this action. There were two major reasons that stopped me.
One, I don’t want or desire to spend my time-sharing anything personal about myself (not that you have too).
Second, there is just too much drama that gets into the way of supposedly having a positive societal exchange of like-minded people.
Facebook is the wrong book at the wrong time for people to spend hours looking up long lost friends just to turn around and un-friend them.
The Faceboook mystique has caused friends to become enemies. And long-lost romances dating back years ago have or will cause heartache and marriage/ family breakups.
Now, I am not accusing Facebook of all these human disasters. After all, Facebook is in the business of putting people and business in a socially responsive environment together.They are in the business of making money and they do quite well, just ask Mark Zuckerberg and those who have invested in this business.
However, the blame for making Facebook to be their virtual Bible are people who have lost their minds and put Facebook as their first and last resort for everything.
Here are a few examples of those who will post to Facebook first rather than turn to God for an answer.
Spouse walked out of your life? Tell it on Facebook. Major health condition or a family member passed away? Put it on Facebook first. Heard someone is about to be terminated from their job. Tell everyone at the office via Facebook.
I don’t need to go any further…except to say, that Facebook is the wrong book at the wrong time to get the help one needs.
The right book at all times should always be…the Bible.
