After my extensive experience - over one year AND two months, and counting - on that great social networking tool, Facebook, I have come up with five extremely thought-provoking questions for your ponderance (new word, yay). Even more intriguing than the great philosophy of Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates, I present:
THE FACEBOOK FIVE
#1 Have you ever posted a photo of you, or your friends, who were drunk?
This seems to happen to a lot of FB users – and not just the high school and college ages, either. Pictures make these “special occasions” even more memorable and are great for future embarrassing moments. It’s also apparently best to disclose where you vomited so that everyone has that information as well. Maybe a commemorative plaque should be placed at the scene, too?? WTH?
Check this actual FB site out – at your own risk: MY TOO DRUNK PHOTO. Seriously, I can’t even make this kind of stuff up.
#2 Who made you mad, and did you express your anger in the most humiliating way possible, for all to see on FB?
Another great question. Interestingly, the actual responses on FB wouldn’t surprise most of us. Your answer should be extremely personal, and you should go in to as much detail as possible so that ALL of your FB friends know how much you really dislike that person.
#3 Have you ever, excitedly/foolishly, posted a picture of personal information to show off to your FB friends?
Probably not the best idea. For example, “I got a new credit card,” (see actual one, below), or driver’s license, or here’s my new address (after you moved).
#4 Is it possible to show more cleavage on the picture you took of yourself?
More than likely this “classic” FB picture involves the low-cut-in-the bathroom-with-mirror-and-iPhone (or Android) photo. To make this complete, one MUST squench the lips together.
Bloggers Note: Nope, I still can’t make this stuff up.
#5 Can you keep a secret?
This one has always puzzled me, and makes me want to answer this one with another question: Is Facebook the best forum for asking this question, and better yet – is it the best place to be answering the question. I’m not sure, but I probably wouldn’t be sharing my “deepest, darkest” all over the interwebs (okay, maybe on my blog), but not to the Facebook community.
What questions, answers, photos, or items have you seen on Facebook, that make you scratch your head thinking, “Why are they actually posting this on FB for all the world to see?
