It was an interesting day to track my Facebook friends and how they adapt to change….
Now, remember, this is not about serious life change or relationship changes….this is about changes to Facebook….
The first thing I found a bit distressing was the strong language of hate….now maybe I am old-fashioned, but hate is not an everyday word in my mind. I was struck that if we would all be as engaged with the injustices around us as we are with changes in Facebook, our communities may be different. If we hated abuse and poverty and put our energy there, maybe we could impact the wrongs that surround us. If the news picked up on the story of the day because we were all posting about something life changing, like they covered the Facebook change tonight, maybe media would help to bring about changes for good….
Remember my friends, Facebook is a tool that we are fortunate to even access to. In our culture where we not only can afford computers and internet, we also have phones that connect us all the time. I don’t want to sound to crazy about this, but honestly, it is Facebook and in some fashion, all this emotion behind a Facebook change feels like we have lost perspective….
When Facebook gets you to the point of disgust or frustration, turn off your computer and go connect with someone face to face and talk about an issue that really matters!
