You open your laptop. You sign into the screen on your computer. Instinctively, you open Mozilla Firefox and you untintentionally click on a shortcut. Facebook opens, and plastered all over the page are status updates, picture uploads, and party invites. Before you can even realize what you are really doing, youâ€™ve updated your status to â€œsitting, bored at the bookstore,â€ and even changed your profile picture.
Ten minutes later you close your internet window, youâ€™ve done Facebook, you have checked out Twitter, you know all that is possible to know about your dear friends for their past twelve hours. Now you are moving into the real reason that you showed up to the bookstore in the first place, to do homework. You will be back though, sooner than you can only imagine.
You are tired of writing your 4,000 work paper for your class tomorrow, so you decide that you need to take a short break to peruse the web. By surfing, we all know that you mean to tend to your social networking addiction. How else will you know how to live your life, see what your friends are up to, and where to avoid your â€œfrenemy?â€
How is it possible that social networking sites have been developed to fill up this much of our time in a day? Twelve year olds are now begging their parents to be a part of this unusual type of social scene. They connect with their friends with odd judgements of each other, with hearts and emoticons. Babies have websites created by their parents to show off their growing head of hair, or their trendy fashion sense.
When will this trendy fad ever start to die down? No wonder people love taking pictures of their â€œhot bodsâ€ in the mirror of the bathroom. BE NATURAL PEOPLE, BE NATURAL.
