Simonson Says: The limited personalities of Facebook

Before Facebook, we thought our friends’ personalities were diverse and complex. And when we first opened our accounts, we could barely pace ourselves as to our status updates because the possibilities of what to say seemed endless.

Three hundred friends later, we started to lose interest in both posting status updates and checking those of our friends, because it seems approximately 10 people remain active on it, albeit under many different names. Next time you are staring blearily at your Facebook page, vaguely addicted but at a loss as to how to entertain yourself with it, see how far down your home page you get before a pattern forms and you realize you’re seeing the same statuses from different people.

Exhibit A (The Mysterious Attention-Fisher)

Average status update: #*@$ you I am beautiful and I don’t need u to tell me that. I don’t hate you I wish you the best but I want to say you are a big fat a*$hole for doing this to me!! You let me down and have lost me forever, was it worth it??

Comments: u ok sweetie? I’m always here if u need to talk! call me

You ARE beautiful. Anyone who doesn’t see that is not worth your time! You are a strong, amazing, BEAUTIFUL person and you deserve the best from your . . . lovers? friends? co-workers…? Whoever has hurt you does not deserve your company. You can talk to me about anything! Love you!
