First Crush Facebook
Its more than 3.5 years of spending time in Face book.
Of late i am observing a pattern among our own friends who are in Face book.This behavioral pattern at times amuses me to a great extent.Let me share some of the inputs given to me by my friends.Of late few of our friends started to change their display names like She1 I am thinking ...She1 Exams are tough .... He1 Life is boring. What amuses me is the fact they change it far too often. There was a case when one of my friend changed his name to a caption "Life is a journey",his profile was blank,his display pic was some scenery.Purpose of photo is to identify oneself easily,i still don't understand why PP put Surya's pic or Trisha's pic in their profile.It was his Bay then,i just scrapped him "Happy Bay" with out even knowing who he was at that moment.
Then comes our friends who work on site.95% of on site guys are more active in Face book than offshore guys . Probably they are so lonely they scrap more often when they are on site ,they would never have cared to scrap when they worked offshore.For sure you can expect to see beautiful locales of the state / country they are at the moment in their albums.
Finally comes beloved committed/engaged/new weds friends.I don't know who started this Fonda of putting marriage/engagement snaps in Face book album.Its understandable that those who missed out or those who are in abroad can check out their albums to find who the guy/gal is.Its a general notion marriages are special and those moments can be shared among friends. These snaps are fine but of late ppl started to share honeymoon snaps as well in the their album.I really don't know where this is going to end. Then comes our committed/married friends with one profile IE Husband and Wife together own a profile IE that profile has all husband's friends and all wife's friends.I never liked that idea at all.
One on hand face book is for friends,on the other hand, there are the anonymous profiles.Its very hard to imagine what their motive is in seeking FRIENDSHIP with such profiles.Any half headed person would never accept such fake profiles. Weird thingy is some go to the extent of creating fake profiles merely to increase their fan count.A post on other side of face book written by karthik sriram.
Everything has good and bad they say.
I think we have to look at only the bright side of such networking sites.
Face book is still the best place to keep in touch with known *FRIENDS*.
