If you’ve scrolled down your Facebook timeline and stumbled upon an image that upset you to your core, you would be totally justified in unfriending, unliking or even close your Facebook account until better days arrive.
In fact… I’m considering doing just that. I have unliked so many charity pages and awareness pages because of images that haunt me and it’s not that I want to live in wonderland. I know there are severe issues out there that require our attention, but how is LIKING a Facebook page really helping? Even throwing money at the problem is a better option.
Then, I found an even eviler evil… the people who you know… FRIENDS! Who take pictures of suffering around them. They post it onto Facebook and tell a sob story. My question is this “WHAT SORT OF A HUMAN BEING ARE YOU?” Have we become SO indifferent to the suffering of others and SO completely obsessed with our smartphones that we have to be the first to snap a pic and post it onto the internet?
But I’m ranting…. and I’m not supposed to rant. Instead I am posting 2 pictures I found that illustrates how I feel. They are very clever print ads – Liking isn’t helping
