.I just figured out one reason that Facebook will never replace blogs, IMO. People take advantage of the quickness and efficiency of the format, the "one liner," so to speak. That is convenient, for me as well as anyone else. But ....
I'm tired of reading posts that are like half-thoughts. It feels like I've broken into the middle of a conversation, and I have no idea what is going on. A lot of these are from people I know (or thought I did), either IRL or via the Internet, yet many times I don't understand the abbreviated statements.
Gonna get 'er done.(I am not using quotes, just similar statements for examples.)
The answer is in the tea leaves.
Did not, did not, did not!
I hate this.
I assume these might mean something to people who directly and personally share much of your daily life. But if people already knew these things, I'm not sure why I would write them on Facebook. If they don't know what I'm talking about, those tidbits aren't going to tell them anything! Often when I ask a person what that is about, there is no answer. These things make me feel like I felt years ago over the "BE" situation!
Maybe I'm missing the whole purpose of Facebook. I hate this. Maybe I need to start over and look for the answer in the tea leaves. Maybe someday I will say gonna get 'er done. And eventually I'll yell did it! Who knows? I certainly don't get it at this time, and I gotta say .... that hurt. Does anyone else see these "shorties" and wonder about them? Maybe I should just let it go and BE.
