skinink: A friend from college keeps posting stupid Tea Party crap. So many times I want to respond that he's wrong but I back off. I really want to just unfriend him because obviously he's miserable living in America under Obama's presidency.


I experience it both ways. not like that... ;) A fair bit of Nonstop Anti-Obama stuff, about how he is a non-flag saluting Muslim from Kenya who hates America and Jesus. More obnoxious than that are my relatives who post really poorly reasoned crap from specifically anti-conservative and ultra-liberal sites. It's especially weird given these aren't 20 or 30-something-year-olds. Since I know them, I do know what their lives are like, where they came from, how they were raised, how they got to where they, are and how that differs from how they think they got to where they are in life. The problems in their lives have nothing to do with the rich not paying enough taxes, Big Oil, "the companies", or stupid religious people, but you wouldn't know it from their postings.

Fortunately the mopes that think Facebook is the place to enlighten people who are already happier and/or more successful than themselves are in the minority.

I have a friend like that. I just keep posting references to Somalia in his threads.

Why do I have a feeling that facebook had something to do with this study?

Facebook explained:

step 1-
post pictures of food, a song you like, some pics of your vacation.

step 2-
complain about the food, biatch about Guided By Voxhaul selling out, biatch about mastercard taking your house because you can't pay for vacation.

step 3-
your short circuited reward system goes mental when people post replies of any kind.

step 4-
repeat.


facebook is like winning a free game at pinball. no actual tangible reward for the time put in. that's ok though, your brain doesn't know the difference unless you are a centered and mentally healthy individual.

i do not use facebook. facebook is for morans.

Will this do anything to explain those who choose to use facebook to share and biatch about every. Single. Thing in their life they view as some sort of injustice or pain in the ass. You know the person I'm talking about. It definitely seems like some kind of mental disorder.

Pretty much the only thing I will biatch about on Facebook is sports. Because, you know, nobody gives a shiat and I ain't airing out my dirty laundry to random people from high school.

I had an acquaintance who would post only negative things on Facebook. At least five posts a day complaining about something and how horrible everything is. Eventually, I clicked the option to hide her posts without unfriending her.

I would say that's evidence of depression or something...

Someone else I knew publicly insulted a certain restaurant and the owner (called him a drunk) on her Facebook profile after she was fired -- and she did this while everyone else at the restaurant were still friends of hers on Facebook. That's probably not normal, either. (Not a psychologist.)

The thing is: As the social-media generation becomes older and such behavior on social media becomes routine since it's all they've ever known, will this behavior then become "normal" by default? (I'm 32.)

Like smartest and funniest for this post, or scroll past if you don't care about dead kittens or Jesus dying for your sins, or our soldiers in Iraq, or hate your grandmother.
