Entry 3 : A discovery
I read an article written by a psychologist, published in Cleo magazine while waiting for my car to be washed .I was rather taken aback by the writer implicating that Facebook is feeding to Narcissism.
Do you believe so? I truly believe if one does not want to read about other people’s moaning, crying out for help,loneliness,helplessness and etc, then don’t read! To me Facebook is a great way to get connected to people, siblings, loved ones or long lost friends and school mates. It’s a way we find out about each other, keep in touch and communicate with those miles away from us. So what of one wants to moan, gloat or simply asking for sympathy.Well, to me, at least I know somewhere out there, my friend’s plea for help may be a trigger for me to offer help. Perhaps they need love, encouragement and support? Aren’t we supposed to care for one another? Isn’t that part and parcel of being human? I believe that particular psychologist must have lost a lot of his business because he gets fewer clients going to talk to him when one can talk in the Facebook and ask for emotional support from their loved ones and get instant advice from friends who care. What is wrong with people wanting a bit of attention occasionally? This world has become cold and hard, isn’t it good that we share with one another.What say you out there on Facebook?
