Hello all! it’s me yet again with another blog! This one might be a wee bit shorter than my other blogs, but we’ll see how it goes. Anyway, the title is self explanatory: Facebook truly is the devil. I’m a 90’s man, so ya’ll know I gotta take it back a little ways! Those of us from the year 1999 and below, remember the good old days when technology was…well, obsolete? Remember as a kid you’d wake up every Saturday morning and watch cartoons all day long? Maybe hit the pad for a little while and play Mario with your friends and cry when you lost Yoshi (I know I’m not alone!). Good times, right? Nobody cared about having sex or twerking or any of that foolishness. We were just being kids. Life was good until the first cell phone with texting came out in 2004-ish. That’s when the madness started.
I still remember the first Razor flip phones. I was in middle school when that happened. Those high a** phones hit the schools by STORM. Life was never the same again after that. Kids was texting dirty stuff to each other, sending naked pics, etc. Just like they do today except it’s a lot worse now. Then, when that wasn’t enough, in comes Myspace; the mother of Facebook. Now as a teenager, I wanted to be with the “in” crowd and get one, too. I NEVER really cared for Myspace like that. Mostly cause I didn’t have close friends (I was somewhat of a loner), but I also didn’t want to be in the midst of all that DRAMA. Besides, the name was too ironic. How was it called “my” space when everyone could SEE “your” space? It didn’t make sense to me. Anyway you know how high school is. If sex wasn’t unheard of back in elementary school days, it certainly made up for it in high school.
“Thrilla…why are you reminiscing? You’re supposed to be talking about why Facebook is the devil!”
Calm down! I was getting to it! The whole point of all of this is that we’re ALL are too dependent on technology. Think about all of the divorce rates back then and how low they were. Teenage pregnancy was lower. Oh, how about clothing? I live in Florida and when I see females walking down the street, their clothes are so tight that I can’t tell if they’re adults or children. Something is wrong about that. Every time you log on Facebook, all you see are people arguing about something; some of those people are dead because of this. Life is bad enough, yet you see R.I.P on everybody’s page. Even worse, a lot of you right now allow your kids to log onto the same foolishness. But you wonder why your daughter is pregnant or your son is in a gang like everything is fun.
C’mon black/latin men and women, we have to do better (I say black and Latin ’cause we’re one in the same)! If you got the time to sit at a computer or on your phone all day wondering what people are posting, you should take a good look at yourself.
“Oh, my baby daddy postin’ pics of some Jordan’s, but can’t watch his kids!” or “Who’s that (Enter profanity here) in that picture with my woman/man?!”
STOP IT! First off, NO ONE GIVES A DA*N! Whoever you’re STALKING (because EVERYONE KNOWS Facebook is just legalized STALKING), people already know how they are without you putting your two cents in! If you feeling some type of way about a person, TELL THEM IN PERSON. Why does everyone else have to know? You wonder why so many people get killed from outside sources who really don’t know either party involved from a can of paint. Secondly, $t0p tyP1ing lyk3 th1$!! STOP IT! YOU’RE NOT A COMPUTER! Texting included! I’ve ignored so many messages like that. Third, DON’T ALLOW YOUR KIDS ON THIS FOOLISHNESS! ANY of your kids that aren’t 21 yet in your household should NOT be on it! Kids know too much as it is without any help from you or anyone else! Finally (which is the best one), be like me and either delete it or don’t make one at all! You got over 1,000,000 friends but you don’t know any of them. C’mon man. Most of us have only a handful of people we talk to on a regular.
“Nah…see…I play Farmville a lot. You know I HAVE to keep my crops growing!”
1. STOP IT!
2. They have a FREE app for it now. Facebook linking is OPTIONAL.
3. STOP IT!!
I’ve been off Facebook for about a year now, and I must say, I feel a lot better. I don’t plan on returning for quite some time, if ever again. Some of you Facebook fanatics (ESPECIALLY the stalkers), just try it out. Don’t go on Facebook for a week and see how better you’ll feel. Don’t worry about what your ex is doing. Just relax. Try it out! Oh, one last thing, don’t go substituting Facebook for another demon (Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, etc.). Kind of destroys the whole point. Anyway, I’m out! Most High bless! See ya’ll next week!
P.S This post was longer than expected (lol).
