Facebook, That is A tragedy!

Facebook as a social beast was born within the society and reconstructed it according to re-invented artificial norms. Self-efficiency of each profile includes fragmented notions about immortality. What we’ve got here is a space where things just happen, outcomes are evident but again depend on social choices… Even if we die we continue existing in network…

Users share tragic and happy moments, mark places where they’ve been, tick their daily events etc… one may argue, that there is nothing new in sharing personal, even too intimate thoughts in order to get social feedback, but problem attached to modern ways of socializing are not that much easy to handle. People provoke feelings only to make a “share” -able story, they go to parties with cameras trying to catch best of themselves…. What was the means before became the end now. Nobody ever before re-kissed girl 10000 times only to get a good caption out of it… Now i guess people have girlfriends only to share…

Another thing with social network is that, WE acquire social statuses according to our FB activities. Friend list, wall posts, profile descriptions, serve to create out public image, in the most cases, images are quasi social, and falsification of what is in reality…

In the end i want to ask, if you like this post just “Like” it, if not “Share.”

  1. I think it isn’t a huge problem people like to discuss themselves so facebook is just a modern way of expressing and creating quasi- identities to built personality on sociable accepted level. I mean stories are marked by likes in order to influence in appropriate ‘public direction’. So as I wrote in the past every person has virtual cover and price in different fields like profession, private life even love. But much worse is when people write such kind of fake stories in reality. I guess it isn’t shocking as much as on facebook because everybody just get used to it.

  2. Any type of expression is OK, but creating expressions for a need to express is stupidity

  3. “creating expressions for a need to express” explain me relation between your topic and what i’ve written.

  4. you wrote that “it isn’t a huge problem people like to discuss themselves so facebook is just a modern way of expressing and creating quasi- identities to built personality on sociable accepted level.” – i answered that it is, because of mixing of the means and ends, thats all
