Another thing I'd ask myself is: if you care about something, why would you need to post something about it on Facebook?

I suppose you could answer 'to bring it to other people's attention' - which is only sometimes the case.

How do you know when people aren't genuine in what they post?

I'm not saying I know. I'm just saying you can be fairly sure that some of the time, people post something for more selfish reasons.

Inspirational memes, passive-aggressive whingeing, and social justice warrior stuff all make my cursor hover over the block or unfriend buttons.


Kid P posted this video this week of a penguin traveling back to a So. African beach where a man saved him five years ago and the penguin has returned every year.

My response was, "Couldn't the bird put a note in a bottle, flung it into the ocean, and saved himself the trip?"

I will do that to people I know, who know my sense of humor, but post really positive, heart-warming stories. Sometimes their other friends will take offense though. Nice stories balance out the vitriol of social media, but some people see the joy in getting four flat tires on the freeway and that kind of attitude kinda bugs me as disingenuous.

I think that, for a lot of people, Facebook is reality.

I've been trying not to implode about the somehow impossible to avoid shrieking hysteria that Judge Abdus - Salaam has been murdered. A million people have taken to the internet to register their outrage at this racist killing - with no facts to hand and with the only wish to blurt out something because they feel they ought to. As in the case of the Georgia man who committed suicide, taking a breath and considering the sadness of mental health takes a backseat to just saying the first thing that comes into your head.
