Everyone knows Facebook. However whilst reading the numerous posts about what people were getting up to at New Year I began to think – is Facebook making me uncomfortable with my life? Everyday we see posts from the numerous people we have as ‘friends’ telling us how exciting their life is and what exciting thing they are going to get up next, and continuously uploading photos of themselves surrounded by lots of friends looking smug.
I mostly read Facebook whilst sitting at home most likely a bit bored and every so often peoples’ musings about how fantastic their life is begin to make me feel I should be doing something exciting – I should be uploading photos – I should be engaging in their whitty ‘banter’ – then I begin to feel boring! People have always compared their life’s to others however, I’m sure not as much since Facebook came on the scene and now I’m wondering if its turning into more of a hindrance than something interesting to fill my time with unlike Twitter which I find engaging. Therefore, I’m seriously considering deactivating my account – what’s everyone else’s opinions on this? Has Facebook ever made you feel uncomfortable with your life?
