Virtual success? Yeah.. I got that from some of my FB friends. They write so many achievements on their FB info profile.. They stated that they are employers of some prestigious companies, all from year xxxx – present..
Geez.. can you do that? Work at SIX companies or so at the same time?
Yet, in reality, they’re not what they claim to be..
They often tell people that they’re:
– at a luxurious place (“@Hilton, @Paris, @etcetcetc”),
– eating something expensive (“Hey, I’m eating a big IMPORTED ribs, delicious!”)
– having new gadgets *even though they get the gadgets from their rich parents or siblings* (“Yaaaayy.. A new i-Phone..” or “wanna ride my new Ferrari?”)
Everything that they think will make their FB friends jealous, they just have to write it on their wall! These people even update their status more than 7 times in one hour, or comment on all of their friends’ status. A rude comment on other people’s status by saying, for example, “my gadget is super cool, and yours is so darn lame”, is also exist. They just want to be better than everyone else.
One FB user even dramatizes his love life on FB. He wrote awful things about his ex after he got dumped. And you know something? He shares the same mutual friends with his ex girlfriend. What a gentleman. -__-‘. Lack of etiquette I guess..
It’s fine if you want to share your activities on the internet with your friends. There are some people (who share their activities that may raise other people’s jealousy) that are actually doing those things with their own efforts, with no intention to show off. Instead, they want to let you know, that if you work hard enough, you can do those things. I mean work hard working! Not work hard sucking on your daddy’s or siblings’ buttocks for money!
I really want to remove them. But on FB, they’ll know if someone is removing them from the friend list. And it will be a little bit awkward for me if I meet them in real life activities and am being asked why I removed them from my friend list.
Short story told. I finally clicked the ‘hide’ button. No more news feed from them. I just need FB to share activities with my non-stars-wannabe friends.
