Sometimes 'in-your-face'

"OMG, I just sneezed!" "I'm unwell...*sniff*" "I don't like this." "I don't like that." "I saw this movie." "Hey look, my popcorn!" "Happy *whatever* Day!" "See this picture of my perfect... a) family b) children c) husband d) boyfriend e) holiday f) pet" ...and so on. Social networking is not just social networking. It has a lot to do with inflating the ego, broadcasting an opinion, sending subtle and loud messages both to one or more people, talking to self out loud --online, showing off your wit and various other things including photos of yourself and your beloveds'. Sometimes, it gets to be in-your-face and on-your-nerves. The people (er, your 'freinds', I mean), their thoughts, their opinions, their blah-blahs, their pictures, and everything they are crazy can all drive YOU crazy. I considered deactivation, but when you're in a business and your thing includes sales of any kind, eegawd, you gotto brave all this and adopt an 'if you can't beat them, join them' mantra. So I i do.
