The Facebook dilemma

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

It is a known fact; people (not all! šŸ™‚ ) boost up their lives on Facebook, pretend it is nicer, funnier, better, more exciting then it really is. CompetingĀ with your fellow Facebook friends on who isĀ gettingĀ the most Likes and/or Comments, in a way much comparable with the ‘I want to have a bigger carĀ than my neighbour’ rat-race inĀ (Western) society. What a waste of time and energy…

Facebook is currently *the* biggest ‘six degrees of separation‘ network, giving youĀ the ability to (re)connect with friends, real friends,Ā meet new people and connect with them, their lives…ain’t that beautiful? But, is really usedĀ to that extend? To really connect and interact?

ForĀ a second, wake-up and realize thatĀ mostĀ of this is entertainment for the masses, one big cover over your eyes to blindsight you from the real world,Ā the truth and what really matters in life…

So, how much time do you spend on Facebook and what does it give you really?
