💔Shopaholic Rant: Unfriending people on Facebook 💔

💔Genuine relationships require a great deal of time, energy,commitment and emotional investment.

💔For this reason I have always been utterly bemused by the sheer no of friends people claim to have these days, esp since the widespread usage of social media. Almost every person’s profile I have clicked on in the last few months has a had friend count of over 500 😳.

💔With an average school having between 400-500 students thats like being friends with every single person in school !😱

💔 I mean even at weddings the maximum guests you have if you are Caucasian 👱🏼‍♀️is 50-250, or if you are brown 🙎🏻is between 200-400 and that includes the entire odd assortment of relatives and colleagues, friends of your parents, their extended families etc. So where exactly are these 500+ “friends” ? I’ve personally never seen anyone at one time hanging out with 500 close friends have you? I mean even in the cult favorite show “Friends” there were only 5.

💔Have we redefined friendship to include any person with a social media account to have free access to our personal life? Or has the numbers game taken over relationships as well in this day and age?

💔I personally find the idea of someone I barely know, have access to all my social media just plain odd and awkward. I’ll give you an example, recently  I stumbled upon a middle school classmate after almost 10+ years through a common friend. Even though we were never more than polite acquaintances back in school immediately she requested to befriend me on social media. Since she had already whipped her phone out and was looking at me expectantly, it seemed rude not to comply. A couple of weeks later however since I didn’t hear a single peep from her, I ceremoniously unfriended her off all my social media accounts. 😕.

💔Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a mean, hateful person ( well not all the time 😋) and I love the idea of making new friends. But here’s what I don’t get: befriending someone on social media only to ignore them in real life? Picture this I went to the movies 🎬with a “friend” and the entire time we were there she was busy liking pics on Instagram and commenting on Facebook. 😡 The whole point of going to the movies with friends is to laugh together and comment on the funny and interesting bits. I honestly was pissed off and left wondering why she had bothered to come at all.

💔Secondly why would you want divulge all your life details to someone you just met( let’s face facts people from what we are eating and drinking, to what we are wearing to who we are with and where we put in all on social media). 

💔Finally why would you want to have someone who you have zero interest in past the intial friend request, have all of their crap show up on your newsfeed? I mean it’s frustrating enough to have to deal with insufferable people in real life,  but to have them irritate you online as well? I’ve frankly got no tolerance for the selfie queens, attention seeking status posters, repeated game request senders,or people who just want to add and forget you…😒.

💔Why not just unfollow them you ask? Well I’ve done that but that still lets them look at my stuff whenever they choose to and I’m not in the habit of putting up a zillion different privacy settings everytime I post. Plus everytime I happen to look over my friends list and see a name that i haven’t had any sort of contact with in ages it makes me wonder what on earth are they still doing on my friends list?🤔

💔I mean the last time I checked Facebook wasn’t a dupe for the yellow pages 📒.

💔To be honest I feel much better after I spring cleaned my social media contact list. It may have dwindled my friend count but atleast the ones left are the ones that matter. How do you clean up your social media let me know here 😘

Until next time loves xoxo💋

What not to do on Facebook 🚫

Ok here’s some news you haven’t heard before : Facebook is the epicenter of almost everyone’s lives today. At any given time 1.038 billion of us are using Facebook ! Let’s face of it majority of us won’t consider our day as officially underway unless we have logged onto Facebook and gone over our news feed with a magnifying glass 🔎.
There’s no denying it Facebook has a plethora of advantages for its users . It’s a way to connect with loved 💞ones, to share fun ✨memories , get interesting information🤓, have a laugh😅 , learn something 🤔new , get your daily news , catch up on gossip🤐 , stalk👀 your ex, stalk👁 a friend/ enemy you secretly admire 💙 but outwardly hate 💚and the list goes on…
But as with all things good. People tend abuse and overuse Facebook to the point that it becomes quiet frankly an annoying pain in the a** to everyone on their friends list.

Disclaimer: – This article is meant to amuse 😆, so if you are someone who is easily offended, instantly incensed, are looking for a reason to vent , or have no sense of humor😠 . Move on. 🏃🏾

Otherwise keep on reading because you are about to find out just what not to do on Facebook.😉

1- Dont be an obnoxious relationship flaunter,

img_6477
I swear if I have to read yet another “#Best hubby ever ! So blessed to have you in my life! Xoxo!” status update I will end up in jail on account of attempted man slaughter.
For the last time ! No one wants to hear your sappy, over the top proclamations of undying love for your husband/boyfriend/ partner.
Instead of logging onto Facebook every time your heart starts overflowing with undeclared love. Do us all a favor, jolt your snoring love machine from his stupor, and enlighten him. I assure you, the 500+ people on your friends list will thank you for this small favor. 😒

2- Keep your food fetish in the kitchen where it belongs,
Unless you intend to send everyone one your list a food package this instant , or invite them all over for dinner, or you happen to be a food blogger . No one gives a shit about what you cooked today. So put down the camera and let us eat in peace you pyscho.

Still not convinced you have a compulsive obsessive food disorder? Mental health experts have linked taking/ sharing too many pictures of food to mental illness. Time to check into the looney bin pal.

3- The birthday, anniversary , childbirth ranter,
So it’s your spouse’s , boyfriend’s, children’s birthday, anniversary or their kindergarten graduation. That’s just fabulous, so unless your husband is a soldier deployed in Africa, or your first born is in boarding school in Alaska you can very well wish them in person.

And unless you intend to auction off that birthday cake and all of their/ your gifts, the used gift wrap and all the candles you own and lit just for taking those pictures. There is no need to broadcast them along with an over the top nauseating status update on Facebook , we really don’t care!

4- The accidental supermodel/ selfie queen👑

img_6469

Ok here’s are the facts: You are no Kate moss or Gigi Hadid and the paparazzi won’t chase you if you paid them💰. So quit posting pics of yourself casually strolling along fully kitted up and act like someone just happened to snap a few hundred shots of you in monochrome no less and put them up as your profile pic .

Same goes for looking over the shoulder or staring out in the distance accidental on purpose selfies . We are sick of them, spare us, stop fishing for likes and get a life . Or hire a photographer and get over your self obsession once and for all.

5- The over zealous parent ,👶🏽
Yes we know your children are the center of your lives as they are for most parents . Let’s just keep it that way. No one but your family and closest, loyal and obligated friends will want to see and comment on endless pics of your little ones in their rompers, dresses, awake , asleep, on their own , being forced to pose next to stuffed toys, holiday props ,your sleeping husband … You get the idea.

6- The compliment inventor ,😳
So the supermarket, grocery store, gas station clerk couldn’t believe you hadn’t even graduated from first grade and you were the mother of two? Maybe you should stop shopping at stores that:
(A) don’t offer vision insurance to the staff- the guy has cataracts.
(B) don’t mind their staff coming in drunk to work or
(C) encourage the staff to lie through their teeth in order to get tips .

7- Thy mother is thy life,💖

img_6468
We have no doubt that your mother is your backbone, your rock , your entire world. We are also 100% sure she would love it if you were to tell her all this in person or over the phone instead of posting it on Facebook along with grainy pics from your unrecognizable past .
Happy Mother’s Day indeed 🎉.

8- The desperado,
yes you know who you are. The attention craving poster of statuses that range from “I’m so alone” , “my life is over”, “I’m pissed”, “feeling so sick🤒” , ” the best day ever!” and “Las Vegas here I come!”.
The fact is. Your cunningly crafted, narcissistic, sympathy seeking, envy invoking attempt is not only glaringly transparent. It is profoundly annoying to the vast majority of people on your list who have zero interest but will nevertheless be subjected to the rants of a raving lunatic.

9- The overly devoted, husband,💞
Re read no-1 on the list then come back here. This guy won’t be able to digest his meal unless he brags about it first on Facebook. “My darling wife made me a smashing meal today!” followed by several pictures of the aforementioned meal probably taken under duress.
Thanks a lot dude! As if the half a dozen pictures your wife posted minutes before, to convince us that your home is an underground 5 Michelin star 🌟Zagat rated restaurant we would never have known . Now why don’t you go wash the dishes and belch out Justin Bieber’s “baby” 🎼to your Martha Stewart while you are at it.

10- The rambling ranter 🗣,
This person has ranting down to a science, politics, sports , religion , social causes. Whatever the hot topic of the moment you can expect an endless stream of opinionated, obnoxious and awkward witticisms.
With an invitation to engage in a ferocious,often venomous discourse in an attempt to shove their righteous beliefs down everyone’s throats.
Hate to break it to you pal , but no one is going to experience an epiphany✨ just by reading your one of your posts.

There you have it people the top 10 things not to do 🚫on Facebook. What are some of your Facebook peeves😡 Let me know !

Until next time xoxo💋!
