Back in the dizaye I wrote (ironically) about one of the "newest" of the modes of communication. Oh how, in only how young love can be experimented with, did I begin an adventure that now leaves me obsessed. Constantly updating, uploading and pressing refresh - now with the addition of my newest love I can do so anytime any place.
Now, it isn't a perfect love as I remain confused why there is such a big deal out there and continued unnecessary roughness by FB. There is a big tado for bfeeding mamas, one that I continued to be baffled by. My stance is this: I don't quite understand the posting of the boobo but if you want to show 300+ of your closest "friends" your tatas I say why not? I'm a prude and accept it with confusion. I'm not quite sure why this is the hill that the people of FB want to die on. Were the execs at FB bottle fed? Have they been somehow traumatized by this?
I have internal mama guilt by continuing to be a user knowing that there is the drama for the mamas. I have chosen to accept the guilt; live with it and continue to question why it remains an issue for the bastards. If I decide to to revolt though, will anyone care? Will the community of FB miss me? Not so much. What will be missed is my opportunity to see who has a clever answer to 'soandso is...', pictures of events or reconnecting with some familiar faces from way back when. Thanks but no thanks.
Can I pose the question - if bfeeding is obscene - what about the tweens with their lady lumps showing as they hunch over their web cam? The near porn shots popularly disguised as Halloween party pics? OR the over 500 groups available to join if you search "animal sex"? (Yes, I searched it. Curiosity). Where is the crusade from Peta?
And finally - if there is a movement against the nurturing of wee ones, why isn't there one against giving me garden vegetables on the daily? Throwing snowballs or poking me? What's with the physical violent or stupid arse applications asking me which Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle I am or someone trying to buy me? Isn't human trafficking a bit more of a big deal than feeding a baby- nip or no nip?
As with anything so right, much can go wrong. Phishing has officially been added to the list of my greatest fears. To date I have had two friends who have become victims of said violation. Now, I'm not sure who would actually fall for such a scam someone actually thinking that I would use Facebook as a medium to be rescued from London (why London phisers? Why now?). The phisers send you a link that looks like a request from FB. You click onto it, enter your user name and password and boom they scrape it off and they start hitting your friends up for 5hundy to save you from London.
The other day I got a notification from FB and I was convinced it was bait - those bastards were coming to get me. They weren't going to take me that easily. I deleted the email and went on to see if the request was there - surely it wasn't and a trap. In logging in it seemed that the email was in fact not a fake. I did get the friend request my email said I did.
NanaLu is now on FB... what will they think of next?
