Sorry about your drug problem Jane
Then you quickly realize that you just “liked” their problem. Whoops! Now you look like a giant bunghole.
Grandma Ethel just died
Slow down there tiger, and lay off the Like button.
The weird thing about this, is why are people putting their biz up there for all to see. Why post the sad Facebook status to begin with? I have my theories on this. I think it is the same reason why people get weird hair cuts, or tattoos on their face. They want attention! Plain and simple.
The next time Johnny updates his sad Facebook status to “I have rectal cancer” send him a email. Skip the like button (unless you really like rectal cancer).
The Sad Facebook Status Test
You now have a test. Go out and put up a sad Facebook status and see what kind of response you get. Hopefully, no one gets to upset. Try to post something like:
Wow, my dog just died, and I am totally lost
I wonder how many “likes” you will get. If you do, send them a comment about how they are awful human beings to “like” something that is so horrible. For the completely insane person who is a total daredevil, you could post:
OMG, my dad just died
I wonder how many of your friends and family would “like” that one. Be careful with one of these, as you could send some of your elderly friends and family members into a coma. I would save this one for the younger crowd. No chance of a heart attack or stroke.
Facebook is a beast. Be careful out there with your Facebook status updates, and for god sakes, skip the sad Facebook status updates.
