I decided today that I am going to hate everyone who has a social networking account. Myspace, facebook, Tweeter and any other fagtopia of losers who decided that they're going to put their entire lives online for people to look at when no one really gives a fuck. I have many reasons for hating these people but none piss me off more than these.

1. Do you really need to put that many pictures of yourself online for other people to not care about?
2. Updating your status everyday is a waste of time. Again no one cares.
3. The people on your page are your friends in real life. You don't need a website to keep in touch with them. Phones are for that. The people who you don't actually know.. get a life and get real friends.

I often times sit and wonder how much time must people take out of their day to upload every single picture they take on a vacation or at a party to facebook so the same people who were probably at that party or on that vacation can look at? I am assuming that's the reason they're putting it on there anyway because I haven't lost all faith in humanity yet and I really can't believe that they're putting them on there for their own entertainment. Do people think that other people actually care about their pictures? I really won't let myself believe that people can be that stupid so instead I thought up of another more realistic and pathetic reason they do it. They want attention. No one wants to sit and look at themselves and no one is big headed enough (aside from me of course) to actually think that people want to sit and take the time to look through pictures of them or their squirrely looking partners. It's all about attention.. that's what the entire social networking carnival of pathetics is about. "Oh I bet i'll get a cutesy comment on that picture.. UPLOAD". People love to know that other people think good things about them. They can't be satisfied with the fact that other people care more about themselves than they care about them. In the social networking world however, they're all under this blanket of bullshit and their reality is that people actually care. It's not that they care.. they're just another pathetic looking for attention so they comment on your pictures and expect you to return the favor and give them a little self-esteem boost. It's like a trade embargo for the lonely. Does it work? Obviously or else people wouldn't do it. Is it normal? not in the least bit. Nothing is normal about uploading hundreds of pictures of yourself and the same people who you hang out with on a daily basis for those same people to look at. Chances are those same people have the same pictures. Why waste your time doing something meaningless?

"Joe is now in a realationship with Jen" Yeah chances are people already knew that before you rushed home to make it facebook official. Is facebook official the new "Lets arrange a get together with the people we care most about and surprise them with the jolly news of our newly formed relationship!"? I really hope not. Is facebook official some icing on the cake ritual that couples must do now to be legit? Is it so important for the 300 people on your facebook account to know that you and so and so are now in a relationship? Is it something I must do to show that I truly love the person? I really hope not or else i'm going to live a lonley pathetic life. Since I first heard the phrase "Facebook official" I always wondered if it was just a joke or if it was actually some kind of disgusting act of douche baggery by lonely facebook fiends to let everyone know. "HEY! I finally got a girlfriend/boyfriend!!!" I only recently discovered that it is infact.. the latter of the two. People have gotten so wrapped up in facebook that when they do enter a new relationship the first thing they do when they get home is hurry to their computers to make it facebook official. Does anyone else see the strange in this?

I touched on it in the beginning but it's one of the three things that really make me hate people who use social networking websites religiously. 90% of the people on your facebook is someone who you can easily open lines of communication with outside of the internet.... why spend your time sitting on your ass talking to them through crappy social networking wall messages? You would think that if these people were so important to you that you would take the time to dial 10 digits and say what you needed to say rather than spending 10 minutes typing out some long tyrade about how your herpes outbreak is really rough this month. It's pointless, stupid and pathetic.
Absolutely everyone who has and uses a facebook for anything other than business reasons, to keep in touch with family when you're away or to simplify communcation with someone who doesn't have ANY OTHER MEANS of contact.. then you're a performer in the circus of the lonely and pathetic and I am better than you in ever single way.

Great Post....

And just about all can be summed up in item #1.

"Do you really need to put that many pictures of yourself online for other people to not care about?"

Just substitute "that many pictures of yourself"

with

"that much information about yourself"
wow

That's really closed-minded to say. You are going to hate everyone that social networks? That is sad. If you weren't on facebook, you wouldn't know about all of the "annoying" features in the first place. so SHUT YOUR BUTT

Tell me how it's sad? I hate everyone anyway and this only solidifies that hatred for people. Obviously you're a Facebook fiend and you were offended by my rant of logic and reasoning. I know it's tough not having old MouthMangler like you but it'll be okay.

It's true that I don't have a facebook and I probably don't know every single aspect of having a facebook page. The things that I listed though were something of common knowledge and not something I would only know if I had a facebook. I honestly don't care to know -everything- about facebook. It's like learning everything I can about weight lifters blowing their colons out.. just doesn't really interest me.

Why don't you go jump off a bridge MouthMangler and do the world a favor. Shallow,narrow-minded,characte r attacker,asshole to sum it all up...who the hell do you think you are? LOL!
I know who I am and I accept that...but you??? I cannot accept...you are an ass, and I am probably older than you dickhead...what happened to you? You have no sense and no character to ya...My folks were all from the Gap and there was no better people than they.
You are a jerk,when it comes to the Gap,that is why the Gap is dying. My two sons skateboard there and on the Appalachian Trail...F..k You! Do not cross me!

You silly ass/Mouthmangler! You know nothing and you are ignorant. My father and 4 of his brothers were in WWII. The old home place is still standing
in Harrogate. My G.grandfather who came from Virginia built it...I'd like to claw your eyes out for being mean to my kids...you bastard! I am a proud southerner,how about you? My guess is no!
All of my family,(on all sides)came from Virginia,which was such a war torn state,that they migrated here in hopes of better things. I am not a Jesus freak but I still love the old gospel tunes,as I was raised hearing them.

I've heard these songs (from our local culture) all my life.
You need to learn a thing or two Mouthmangler! I can be mean too...I often choose not to be though: That is just who I am,and I've wrapped myself in my proud southern culture,when I pasted this song:

Oops! I'd meant this song for you:

I don't have a facebook page either but I don't sit around for 30 minutes tellimg everyone about how much I hate it. I never look to see if anyone has a facebook page. I don't like it so I don't go there. I don't waste precious time looking. I'm not into that sorta thing so I don't bother.If you hate it so much, just don't go there. Live your life and let people live there's. It's way too short to get upset over something that you don't even care about. Had to learn that lesson the hard way.

This site is nothing like Social Networking. Do I really need to list the obvious reasons why? I'm not on here much at all. The time it took for me to reply to your post is another obvious reason I shouldn't have to mention.
