I walked blindly into facebook this weekend.
I’m not sure what to think of it yet. There are more people–which is positive–but I don’t know what to think of the presentation. It doesn’t seem to lend itself to actual writing, (For whatever it’s worth, I want to write!) and the interactions are limited and superficial, from what I can tell. (No offense, Zuckerberg and the rest of the world) I know I’m not up-to-date with how it works yet, and the situation will likely improve, but it’s very scatterbrained, and already my timeline is filling up with political posts and stuff I have no desire to read. I do like the people, though.
If there’s a way to do Facebook more than superficially, I’m totally in, whatever that would look like. Until then, I don’t know. It feels like more of the very thing I’ve been fighting against for four years. I found out I couldn’t do relationships with girls well when the entire business remains essentially superficial, (Or well in general? There’s a case to be made.) and so far that’s all the relationships have ever amounted to. I catch myself avoiding chit-chat some days, because it feels like I’m cheating people out of something. I don’t want a ton of surface-level relationships, I just want a few meaningful ones. (Apologies, this is me being demanding) I would prefer the concept of facebook to be less manic.
But no griping until an actual effort is made; it’d be a shame to hate it and find out I’m still the real problem.
