Are You A Cool Facebook User, Or A Facebook Loser?
I think Facebook is a great tool for keeping in touch with friends, especially distant friends. There is a fine line, however, that people cross that make you going from a cool Facebook user, to a Facebook loser.
Facebook Cool: Sharing something funny that happened.
Facebook Loser: Sharing something funny that happened to a Facebook friend you've never actually met in person.
Facebook Cool: Sharing a cute picture of your kid.
Facebook Loser: Having all of your pictures on your profile your kid, and not a single picture of you.
Facebook Cool: Hey ken, just wanted to write on your wall and say hi, how are ya? Call me for lunch!
Facebook Loser: Hey Ken, Andrea needs your help to get more coins in whothehellcaresville. She also just answered a question about you, click here to find out what she said.
Facebook Cool: Sharing a photo of you and your friends out on the town with the caption, "Hanging with my bff's" on Saturday at 1 AM.
Facebook Loser: "Anybody want to chat? I'm bored" on Saturday at 1 AM.
Facebook Cool: "I just wanted to let everyone know that Grandpa Joe passed away this morning, thanks for your thoughts and prayers."
Facebook Loser: Everyday I'll post something about how much I miss Grandpa Joe, with some inspirational picture of clouds and sun, until the next person I know dies. He wasn't even my grandpa.
Facebook Cool: Occasionally using the share feature on something funny.
Facebook Loser: Sharing every stupid picture of a kitten, funny cartoon, or sassy girl picture you see. And sharing 7 of them in one day.
Facebook Cool: "I'm feeling great after a workout!"
Facebook loser: "Worked out for the second time today, gonna have a shake, go for a hike, and hit the gym again later" Oh my god, get a life. Who has the time to do all of that, the rest of us work, honey.
Facebook Cool: "Please click the link today to donate for this charity that I spend actual time volunteering at."
Facebook Loser: "Please share this post on your wall if you are against (whatever) for one hour, I bet you aren't brave enough, and only 2% of you will care).
