My Break-up Letter to Facebook

 

It’s been what – 4-5 years? Looking back at it, the good times we’ve spent, games we played, fights we’ve won, photos taken and exchanging messages, it cuts me. Right there. Deep in my heart.

You’ve changed so much. I remember how you used to look really plain and simple. You were a minimalist. You hated the games, so we never had them. You didn’t dislike anything. You just like them, and then you say something. A comment, critique or whatever. But now, you’re so complicated I don’t even understand why you have to set up a Timeline for your life.

You’ve changed so much. I remember we used to play pokes. It was fun. But then you decided we’ll play a game with your other friends. That’s when you kept bugging me with Game Requests. Seriously, I don’t want to play Texas Hold ‘Em Poker when I’m messaging my friends.

You’ve changed. So much. You turned completely evil and erogenous. You started to have a lot of friends. A lot of them, that you forget about me. You have so many friends that you have to make RSVPs and pick out who get to go to your party. You couldn’t say ‘My house on Saturday. It’s just going to be a small party’ anymore.

Bloggers, writers and journalists wrote about how incredible you are and how great you are. Even huge celebrities and companies use you for advertisements. With your increasing popularity, Hollywood made a movie about your life. And I wasn’t even there, thanks a lot. Look at how you’ve changed so much.

Then people started to hate because you’ve changed, so much. You took Friendster and Myspace’s friends because they thought you’re cooler. Which led Friendster to commit suicide and Myspace to be a loner. Look at what you did.

You’ve become boastful and bought Instagram for 1 Billion dollars, when you could have just given $532 to the children in Africa in the photo with 532 likes. Really, you’ve changed so much.

Facebook, my dear, all I wanted was for you to be normal and dislike something. And I’m tired of waiting.

Goodbye.

  1. Facebook has become an ‘evil’ necessity in that many people can’t do without it even though they admit it is a total waste of time.

    Very succint post though!

  2. Hahaha, I was laughing non-stop reading this. You are so right, FB has become more and more wicked and it even ‘forced’ timeline on the users (and I am one of the victims)!!

  3. Reblogged this on My journey and commented:
    Today, Facebook decided that they would force me to begin using Timeline. I remember the days when Facebook existed solely for students and one had to have a school email address to join. I understand that sometimes change is necessary but I do believe that some of those changes should have been left up to us as the users. It would be hard for me to quit Facebook and I can’t even lie and say I would, but one of these days I may just find the courage to do so!

I remember the days when Facebook existed solely for students and one had to have a school email address to join. I understand that sometimes change is necessary but I do believe that some of those changes should have been left up to us the users. It would be hard for me to quit Facebook and I can’t even lie and say I would any time soon, but one of these days I may just find the courage to do so! So imagine my shock, awe and glee when I log into wordpress with the intention of posting some pictures and find that one of the bloggers I follow has written a break up letter to Facebook. Awesome, I echo her sentiments exactly and she has said everything I have ever wanted to say to Facebook. Read on and do visit her site, she is an amazing writer! Reblogged from here […]

  5. Well said, although I still use FB, I’ve limited my list to under 100 to keep in touch with close family and friends only. It’s changed so much that I no longer try to keep up with all the new settings and those game requests are really annoying. I feel your pain.

  6. Ugh my relatives send me those annoying game requests! EW! Then again, MySpace does the same the same thing…MafiaWars…
    I love your blog. You’re cute and spunky!

    P.S. You should really check out the Social Network…it’s really good. You might actually relate a lot to the amazingly attractive character Andrew Garfield plays.

    1. Aw thanks for your wonderful comment. I have watched The Social Network, and you’re right I can definitely relate to Garfield’s character in the film. He’s very spontaneous and over-all, fun. Thank you, again, for checking out my blog and taking time to leave a comment. 🙂
