GONE TO FACEBOOK, AND BACK AGAIN

Ahh... my long-neglected blog... I miss you so!

Sorry I've been away for so long, caught the facebook bug, just like everyone else! It was so much fun initially catching up with old friends, posting old & new pics and leaving hil;arious comments to each other. And it still is fun, but I've noticed some changes lately lah.

Some people have started to get too personal on facebook. Putting up several posts every day, declaring undying love for their spouses. Yeah, it's good that you're in love, but is that kind of post of any value to the social network that facebook is? And the fact that you are a second wife, kind of puts ideas into other people's heads, ya know?

Some others share their arguments & catfights on facebook. Hey hey, I hope your spouses don't know anyone on your friend's list, cause it'd be embarassing to run into friends who suddenly ask "eh, dah berdamai ye? ", or this "eh, yang sakit tu ari tu *wink wink* dah ok ke?" It's OK if you wanna let off steam when you are upset, it's OK to confide in some good friends, to ask for advice etc. But remember, what you post on facebook today, may also be read and remembered by your friends (or horror, your nephews and nieces!) days afterwords.

Oh, and there's worse. Some people use facebook as a warzone! They post hurtful remarks on each other's walls, provoke each other and get other people to join in their fights. Case in point, two women (one a wife, the other a girlfriend) fight over the guy in the cyberworld, calling names & accusing each other with terrible things. Wifey thought she was one-up when she started posting 'manja' pics of herself & hubs, until the GF started writing and describing 'manja' stuff between herself & the guy. I wish they'd just drop off facebook and take their fight elsewhere *sigh* Meanwhile, hubs is eyeing someone new... boleh?

So, my old faithful blog, I'm back :-)

I'm still on facebook a couple of hours a day, but I think I'm more at peace here with you, I can be more myself here with you!
