Facebook. Many people now ask, How did we ever get along without it? I would like these people to open their eyes and see we are getting along far worse WITH IT!!
Yes, it connects family from across the miles. Yes, it allows us to take part in events that we couldn’t normally be attending. But it also causes us to see life through a screen!!
As I write this today I am on my phone, as usual. I am on day 3 of an antibiotic course and today the side effect is dizziness, head ache and what feels like sensitivity to light. Yet, I am here to say, Facebook, you don’t always get it right!
My one prime example is the algorithm that tells us how long we have been friends with someone. Today I got a notification I have been friends with a nurse who I tutored in 4th grade!!! It said we have been friends for 9 years. Uh, yeah, she had graduated high school 9 years ago!
Facebook doesn’t have all the answers. Today is one of those days I want to encourage you to not let your device take over your life. One of two things will happen, you’ll miss it, or worse, you’ll lose it. Don’t let that happen. Don’t let Facebook tell you about your life. Go live it for others.
