Facebook Friendships

I've been thinking lately how big this upcoming move is...a life changer...and yet just a blip on the FB screen of life...how sad. People will "like" the move and comment "good luck" and "keep us updated" but does anyone really mean it? Facebook has made relationships too easy, all fluff. It took all the work out of it and makes the relationship loose any depth and "meat." Here's hoping I can stay connected in meaningful ways to close friends. This is why I have broken up with Facebook multiple times over the last year and a half. I keep going back when I'm bored and/or lonely. We all crave interaction with people, to feel connected. Sometimes it's hard to remember that it's not really connecting.

My random thoughts for the night.

I hear you completely! Yet, while FB feeds the superficial, a small blurb on the screen or "like" or short comment often carries a weight of meaning behind it from those who love you most. I'm a lurker, rarely comment or like, and it's nowhere near as good as the real thing, But, I've decided it's better than not "connecting" at all. That for me is a huge disconnect and while I'll stay off FB for periods of time, it's that desire to even superficially connect that brings me back. Great thoughts -- thanks for sharing!
