We all are pretty addicted to social networking sites, right ? The first thing we do after waking up and the last thing we do before sleeping is checking our notifications and texts and Scrolling through our news feed. I seriously wonder, how many miles has my thumb covered with all this scrolling ? Also, the time at which we sleep is directly proportional to the amount of charge in our device and our internet connection’s speed.
As a teenager in high School on Facebook, I have observed pretty interesting things among other school and college students who are active on Facebook. Here is a list of things that people are crazy about on Facebook –
Yep, this is what it all comes down to. The basic idea of connecting long lost friends and distant relatives from all over the world has vanished into thin air *Poof*. Now Facebook is all about having 1000+ people on our friends list and getting 100+ likes on our posts. We have two kinds of friends on Fb ~ the few that we actually know and talk to and the rest that are there for liking our stuff. You may find 500 people online, but you have no one to talk to and trust me, not one person out of all these virtual friends gives a damn about you. We even judge ourselves and others based on the number of likes one gets. So apparently 100+ likes makes you cool and popular. Okay .-.
A guy with a Dslr = A guy with 100 chicks (also some dudes) chasing him. Having a DP with a DSLR in front of your face (either in front of a mirror or getting somebody else to click it) is a must. Getting a DSLR picture of yourself is a cool alternative too. 200+ likes guaranteed. PS : Snapchat, Retrica and bla bla are mainstream and cheap alternatives.
There are so many of them that I have lost track. One usually starts with “LMS (like my status) for……” The most common one : To Be Honest (TBH). I tried it recently and ended up getting 400+ likes and trust me, it was a big pain in the ass and a waste of time. And these are never really honest obviously. So when you are bored, go and study or sleep or get a life except Facebook.
Fandoms and other obsessions
Following certain sports like football, cricket et cetera is a must. Don’t forget to post status’ every 10 minutes about the current scores in a match. Also go gaga over English soaps and movies. GoT and F.R.I.E.N.D.S are on the top of the charts. PS : Not loving Harry Potter is an unforgivable sin and YouTubers are the Kings of Kings now.
Everybody loves them. The End.
