Facebook Pollution

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.  Hey need to be heard don't you?  Why? Why does every single thought that comes across your brain need to be said on your Facebook status update?

I'm watching the hockey playoff game, and low and behold everyone has a comment about every single shot, goal, penalty. They then have a post game rah rah rah chant.  Then they have during the game roller coaster shouts based on the highs and lows.  

When the game is done, they show their disapointment, mixed in with that slappy optimism 
for the next season or game.


Why not save one post for all of that instead of treating status updates like a chat room? Better yet, go join a chat room and save the rest of us from your pollution. I beg you.  We beg you. 

Just because we are friends with you, doesn't mean we want, need, or like every single update - especially when there are 20 to 30 per day.  Hey how about 1 to 3 per day?  Can you do that? Can you even imagine that?

Next time before you post a Facebook status update...stop...take a deep breath.  Ask yourself if what you are going to post is remotely funny, interesting, or informational.  If it isn't, then don't do it.  If it is, make sure it can't be misunderstood or come across as annoying.  

Would it be something that is embarassing if your boss read it?  Would your kids be proud of your Facebook legacy?  Hey how about going back and cleaning up your old status updates and delete them, instead of polluting the world.  You think it is free to store that stuff? 

Hey you internet polluter. Give a hoot, don't pollute.
