So I don’t know about you but on my news feed on social media I’ve seen a lot of status being either overly gag worthy about how wonderful their significant other is or how much they are soo in love with them. To Be honest, it’s starting to really grind my gears. Welcome to this week’s edition of Social Media Corner, where instead of making you a better social medialist-I help you keep your friends.
As mentioned in my earlier blog posts (about me section post and profile picture post), Facebook is a good way to find love and to check out your future lover before your first date. Hopefully all goes well and you can take it to the next step-making Facebook official. Let’s face it, without it being social media official these days you really aren’t dating. Once it becomes social media official, many couple began to post little love notes on each others walls and status about how much they totally love them and couldn’t live without them. Now this is only cute for the first few times, it gets really annoying real quick and will make some of your friends question your social media friendship and regret liking your relationship status. Some friends might even want to hit their heads over a wall repeatedly. Don’t get me wrong, it’s okay once in a while but not when basically every single status is about them and you are posing love song lyrics on their wall like the rest of the world can’t see because we can. If you go off into your own little world when you are friends, don’t do it on Facebook. Here’s one of those examples:
“I think I’ll keep you for awhile……I love you boo”
If statuses like this weren’t an everyday occurrences, then it would be cute. Since it IS an everyday occurrence, this is only appropriate when you’re alone together. So please stop before you love strangles all your friends. Now you maybe thinking to yourself that I’m just bitching because I don’t want these two people to express their love for each other. You also may think that I’m just a bitterly single person. I’m not bitterly single and I have no problem with them expressing their love for each other, just not on social media. Call or text the person if you want to express your love for each other or take them out on a date.Doing it on Facebook is annoy and is kinda like breaking up with someone over text message. Would you want to find out it’s over via a text? If the answer is no, then just don’t tell them you love them all the time on social media.
When you do something like this on social media, it’s kinda like you invited your friend to hang out with you and your lover and all you do is sucking face with each other in front of them-it gets extremely awkward and you began to feel like you’re the third wheel. it’s okay to show love for each other on social media once in a while, but not all the time. It ruins the effect of it if you say it all the time. It becomes the point when you start to question if it’s realor not. The loves starts to loose its meaning.
I’m also going to throw this tid bit of truth in here as well: If you need to verify that you love them all the time, then you need to re-evaluate your relationship. Just like if you are that attached to that person to where you constantly post stuff to their wall like a love sick puppy, then you need to check yourself. I’m all for all day texting and chatting but not love post on social media.
