Facebook is ultimate expression of narcissism.
Where else can you expose everything about yourself like a prancing peacock. I mean you can get your 15 minutes of fame every minute. Facebook is,when you boil it all down,a one big “look at me” fest.
Look at my pics. Look at my car. Look at where I am. Look at my wife. Look at my life.
The ultimate irony in the social network is that nobody really cares because it is not about them. Oh sure they will say nice things but deep down they don’t care at all.
This narcissism is so rampant in our society,that people would step over real relationship to update their status. The answer to the question “what’s on my mind?”is usually nothing at all.
Facebook is full of shameless promotion.
The stuff that isn’t vapid,is probably a promotion of some sort.
Corporations,promoters,stars,and small businessmen people are either promoting their services or networking to get ahead.
There are whole marketing courses about social media mangers. The sad thing is that most of the comments and tweets are not even done by the people you are following. They have social media managers for that.
They probably have lives and don’t waste time playing with Facebook. Do you see the irony in that? You friend or follow someone because they are doing something interesting with their lives and they don’t waste precious time doing stupid stuff like spending hours on Facebook.
The corporations and marketers tell us that,“hey it is cool to connect,”but behind the scenes they are only interested in the conversion and monetization of traffic.
Do you know what is cooler than a million dollars? $100 Billion
