Now don't get me wrong I really like Facebook and I admit I am someone that uses it as a source of information, entertainment and just general banal statuses. I love pictures of people's babies, I don't mind gym updates or declarations of love to boyfriends of five minutes and I put up with people's complaints because I've done it too. But what really annoys me is people using their statuses as a poorly veiled dig at someone. They want that person to know that they are annoyed with them, they know that they have bitched about it enough behind the other person's back that all their friends know who it is and it's just pathetic. I would say these people need to grow up but these people are adults with mortgages, grown up children and have been considered grown up for over 30 years.
It makes me want to act childish and retaliate. Write a status along the lines of "some people can't deal with the consequences of their actions" but I'm not going to. What makes it much harder is that it's not me that they have upset, it's my Mum and, as I'm sure you will agree, you can say what you want about me but as soon as you start on the family well you don't want to witness the shit storm that will ensue.
Facebook should be a place for friends so if you don't want to be friends with a person anymore then unfriend them, don't post statuses about how much you hate them. Sometimes I wish I lived in a world where the only bitching that could happen was in person not over the big bad internet and I also wish I still believed that bitchiness stopped in high school!
