I’m Live!…Not!



I’m pretty sure this is the only selfie I have ever taken, and I only did it because I had no recent pictures. I was tired of the one promotional photo I have so I tried to update it. There is actually one other but with no makeup or decent lighting, I just look old and tired. So, I’m not a big fan of people constantly taking pictures of themselves and posting them all over Facebook. I don’t need to see a duck-lip pose of you every other day. Well guess what, it’s just gotten worse.

Now Facebook lets everyone go “Live” and why? Sure Sean Hayes can be really amusing, and when a notification comes up that he is Live I will often take a look. Everyone else though, No! Nobody cares that you are on your way to the store. I don’t care that you are at a show I didn’t care enough to go to or that you are at dinner. The narcissism in this world has hit an all time high, and I for one wish we could dial it back. How about you?

    Yes! That’s one reason I don’t hang out on Facebook in the first place. I’ve tried…and the appeal goes right over my head… 😉 xoM

    I’m not on Facebook much other than to see what family are doing or, in rare cases, friends who have tagged me to look at something. Rarely do I put a picture of myself up and it’s never a selfie. Sometimes it’s nice to see pictures of people with whom I rarely correspond or actually see in person.
