Apart from BBM and Whatsapp, I'm very active on facebook. I hardly use my twitter account ( I still don't know how that works) and I only visit instagram to look at pictures. My linkedin? Ah!! Story for another day. I think I've registered with every social network and its so bad I don't even remember the password to some. Who remembers 2go? Jeezz!!! I was such an addict. Hi5? I've been there. Nimbuzz??? Being there too.. Nimbuzz is actually funny cos I really didn't have friends so anytime I log in I chat with the Nimbuzz robot. Funny huh? I forgot Badoo.. That one kept making my phone to hang I just deleted the app plus all the guys kept wanting to hang out and they act very weird.
I have over 2,000 friends on facebook 80% of which I don't even know but I accept friend request everyday for one reason: intellectual and social diffusion. I see your post or anything you have to share be it pictures, videos etc and I learn vice versa. But I can never wrap my head around why someone will like 60 of my pics within an hour. One thing comes to mind: CREEPY STALKER. I once accepted a friend request and woke up the next morning to see 95 facebook notifications. Dude already liked 95 of my pics, I'm sorry I just had to block him. Life is not that difficult. 95 pictures overnight??? I felt someone was invading my privacy.( Is anything even private on social media self?)
I don't reply chats on facebook except I know you or you initiated the chat in a " outta the ordinary way" what's with hi? Hello? Or worse baby. Seriously, baby??? Why call someone u don't know pet names? When it comes to making friends online we should have gone past the normal routine of how are you? Can I get to kow you? What do you do? I think that routine sucks.why its important you know these things, I don't think it should start the conversation. I could tell BMF or CWP or DURU something like " I've gone through your post and you sure have a good sense of humour.. She would be more likely to reply me than the conventional hello.
So why did I get you to read this long epistle? If we are going to keep making friends on social media or even in everyday life we need to look outside the box. I've walked up to a guy and say "hey!!! I love your shoes" and that becomes the beginning of a new friendship. Just incase you have someone like me who keeps ignoring you online.. Maybe you should change your manner of approach.
