I think Facebooks idea was a good one , in a way. But it seems at times like more people  are turning into impersonal angry people. Facebook is over rated , misused, hurtful at times, and the flip side is it  could be a great tool.

There are constant changes in security settings because some warped minded person decided to hack the system. Some people use it for telling the world when they breathe, when they go to bed, what they had for dinner.

Some use it to hang their dirty laundry on, or to attack others. I know of a certain person who got in a facebook war with another friend, only to cause hurt and pain for a very long time.

And it has the tone of that awful feeling in elementary school, when there was that person you wanted to be a friend of… only to have them decline getting to know you. You send a “will you be my friend” request out.. and… they never respond. They do not want you to be their friend.

And if I get a friend request—it feels like back in high school when someone actually wanted my signature in their yearbook…

Life is so hectic, and facebook can be a good way for families to stay in touch, share a photo or two, and feel like you saw each other more than you have.

But it can be really nasty. I remember a while back there was a tragic murder of a young girl. So someone decided to make a facebook page for people to sign onto, as a memoir. Some creeps got on the site and accused the parents of murdering their daughter, … it was awful. In the end, the x boyfriend admitted to the murder, but not before warped minded cruel people slammed the girl, the family and the cops.

I really think the world was a better place without facebook…… with phone calls, visits, and good ol fashioned letters. Let’s keep America working—support the US Postal Service.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU RECEIVED OR SENT SOMEONE A LETTER? YES A STAMPED ENVELOPE, DROP IN YOUR MAILBOX, HANDWRITTEN, LETTER????????????????? DO YOU REMEMBER THE LAST TIME YOU RECEIVED A PERSONAL LETTER??? HOW DI IT MAKE YOU FEEL? I BET YOU SMILED….

Before all this computer stuff… we had a little more time for each other in our real world, our REAL friends…

Instead     now in the  techy world… some try to see how many “friends” they have… the sad things is…some people will chose others friends of friends to be theirs… not because they mean anything to them…. but because they want to have the most friends… it is silly…

Love to all… night night… Mrs Justa alias Cindy.
