Yeah, no shit? I guess all those photos you posted came back to bite you in the ass. I hate it when I log on and all I see on my news feed is a bunch of beach pictures of girls. Well, actually I like some of them. But why is it that young people feel that it is 100% NECESSARY to post EVERY PHOTO you have ever taken on Facebook? Why do they think that it is their responsibility to let the world see it? Why is it that when I take a photo, I have to demand beforehand that the photos are not posted on the Internet? Why do I get scolded for it, and then they’re posted anyway? Why do people feel the need to “check in” to whatever bar or movie theater or wherever they go?
This is exactly what I’m talking about, people. You post WAAYYYY too much about yourself online.
“Oh, thank GOD you posted that Instagram photo of your salad on Facebook. If you hadn’t, I would have been wondering ALL DAY what you had for lunch and what it would look like through a cheap light filter. That was a close one!”
Like what the fuck? Girls are especially bad at this. Is it social survival skills? I mean, I’ve been saying for a while that society is too easy to live in. There must be some “survival of the fittest” nature left in us. Social constructs have left us with little to compete over with such an abundance of calories and sexual satisfaction. So one of the last medium that people can compete over is Facebook.
You can’t advance your social standing without letting everybody on Facebook know that you have lots of friends and go out all the time and do all these things.
“It’s a good thing that you used Instagram to blur out the top third and bottom third of that photo, leaving only the middle third clear enough to actually see what is there. If you hadn’t, I would have been searching all over the other two thirds of the photo for something without knowing it was in the middle!”
You know who pays the price for this people? YOU DO. Because now Big Bro has huge databases of data about you. They know who you hang out with, where you eat, what you eat, what you like to do, what you look like, anything. And it’s not just Big Bro you have to worry about. There’s huge megacorporations saving this information too.
Where is my right to privacy? You know what? I’m going to REFUSE every single photograph taken of me now unless it is with MY camera or phone. Because they all end up on Facebook anyway even if I demand that they don’t, then I’m an asshole for asking them to take it down. Well I’d rather be an asshole.
