Who gives a shit, really?
I have quite the love-hate relationship with Facebook. On one hand, I log on every single day to open my restaurant and put my mafia to work. On the other hand, nearly everything about it pisses me off, and I don’t mean the supposedly insane privacy settings. I’ve never taken issue with those, personally. Just quit posting embarrassing stuff on your profile and make sure to check your privacy settings regularly and see if Facebook didn’t mess around with it.
But I digress. One of the funny things that Facebook (and well, the Internet, really) has done with people is to convince them that everything they say and do is vitally important to the proper functioning of the world. Everywhere, people are posting pictures of them doing everything, and sharing status updates and links like crazy. Insightful or funny statuses are always welcome, as are useful and entertaining links. But status updates that simply say, “Just came from the mall” or “Had cake for dessert”? Hardly exciting. Or maybe that’s just me, because those are the updates that invariably receive an avalanche of comments, ranging from “Good for you!” to “Hope you had fun!” and “Why didn’t I see you there?!”
