>Facebook users are insecure, narcissistic and have low self-esteem.

>

That was one of the headlines in the Daily Mail, a British newspaper.

I couldn’t believe my big beautiful blue eyes. Do you think I should stop using Facebook? I just can’t make up my mind. I want people to like me. Do you think my Facebook friends make fun of me behind my back? What do you think they say when I post one of my gorgeous pictures? I only want to show them that I’m aging so well. And how do they know these things? Are they spying on me? I couldn’t really blame them because I am pretty important. What would they do without my imparting my knowledge to them? But maybe they think I’m too smart and resent me for it. I’d sure feel bad if that was true. People have always been jealous of me I think. They don’t like me because I’m so good looking. All of the other people on Facebook have more friends than I do. Do you think that’s fair? Maybe if I sent money along with my friend requests I would get more friends. That might work. Oh well, it’s their loss. Am I worrying too much? What do you think I should do?

Anyway, I think that newspaper should do more research before they say something like that. They’re way off base on this one.

    1. Hi Barbara. Be my guest if you’d like to share it. I usually do that myself, but I wasn’t on Facebook at the time I wrote this (I am now). I see you are inching your way through some of my early posts. I certainly appreciate the readership even if it’s pretty poor material., As you can see, I didn’t have many readers to start off, I was using it as more of a journal.

      1. Lol, my comment was tongue in cheek, in keeping with your post! I’m interested to see where the change in your style came along…. It’s good to read people’s early posts, like you mine was an online diary to start with, and a way to post things without it invading everyone’s home page on Facebook. My posts are mentioned there, but just a tag line and photo, rather than the albums they us to load before, much less invasive

        Interestingly, my mum had a huge aversion to blogs, and wouldn’t read mine on principle, but then she was visiting a friend of hers who is on Facebook, and her friend was talking about what I was up to, and her friend knew more Han my mum did, (they still live in Dublin) so she showed mum some posts, and now my mum is hooked too, though she usually rings me, or writes to me to respond to posts, she doesn’t like he idea of the whole world reading her comments!!

Your turn to write, but please don't be wittier than me. My ego is quite fragile.
