I was looking at Facebook (the greatest time suck ever invented) I was scrolling through the ribbon of people in the “People you may know” section when I realized I do not know about 95% of the smiling faces. I was saying, “I don’t know you, I don’t know you, I don’t know you, cute hair, oh I like that outfit, nice, still don’t know you….” on and on. Then it was “Oh, you look fun.” I click the picture and read the person’s profile. I see we read the same sorts of books and like the same sorts of movies. It struck me that, no I don’t know the person, but maybe they would like to know me. I mean we have a mutual friend and she likes me. I am amazing and all.
Is it weird to send a message to a stranger and say “You don’t know me but I think you would like me since so-&-so likes me”….?
Then I ask myself, what would you do if you got a message like that?
It would go something like, oh a message…..no..nope… I do not know you, stalker! Delete.
I think I will keep scrolling down the timeline on the off chance that the 5% of people I actually know may still want to talk to me.
Like I said, biggest time suck EVER invented.
I think it is time for a vacation from Facebook again.
