Here comes my least liked social networking site – Facebook. Mithila didn’t have her own Facebook account till September 2014. And the reason why she made it was to create her Instagram account. Actually she wasn’t going to make a Facebook account at all. All through her life. But when she got bitten by the Facebook bug, I doubt she could resist. In the middle of Winter, she got addicted to one game. I don’t remember the name now. One of her friends used to help her out in earning those power ups and all. But something happened.. yeah, blogging happened, and that took her mind off that silly game.. and back to me!

Here’s an analysis of the FB users who fill our timelines with junk/nice things.
(y) Careless Sharers:
These FB personalities love sharing images and jokes that got them rolling on the floor laughing. One of Mithila’s friends had this really annoying habit of sharing 9gag and Teenager Post pics. Another crack-head, used to share Niall Horan quotes and pics like as if all the people in her friends list love him. #Directioners #NoHate
(y) Future Ballon d’Or winners/ Man of the Match winners:
Mahn, misocrickets and misofootballs like me just can’t tolerate such people. Each and every post on their timeline screams: Virat! Ab de Villiers! Lionel Messi! Neymar! IPL! FIFA!. Wow. And what do I scream, “SOS, please, someone save me..!”
One day, I caught Mithila checking out her Facebook feed. I rarely interrupt her when she sets about this journey of torturing herself. I’m normally tweeting around that time. But on that unfortunate day, I saw her timeline full of pics and collages of pics. Prodding her, I asked, “Is it ‘World Photography Day’? Or ‘World Show-Your-Beautiful-face day’?” She replied promptly, “No silly! it’s like this every day! Look, this one actually posts pics every day. Her selfie game is too strong” And then she continues scrolling down the unending list of pics, comment, likes. Nauseated, I stalk off to twitter.
(y) “Like” hoggers
These people attract likers like pollen attracts honey bees, like a magnet attracts iron, like water attracts crows, like lentils attract pigeons. Like Potterheads attract Mithila. *grins. But seriously, these people can go from 0-100 in half an hour. 1000 in 3 days. And the additional likes just keep accumulating throughout the year!
(y) Virtual gamers :
These. are. the. people. who. deserve. to. be. banned. from. using. Facebook. These. are. the. people. who should. make separate. FB. profiles. in. order. to. fulfill. their. gaming. desires. Seriously, I don’t want my notification screen being fille with requests to become a Pirate, a Candy Crusher or even a Farmer. I wanna help Mithila become a great Blogger. Any game for that?
(y) FB FBI Squad:
These are the fangirling type pf gals who stalk their crushes’ puberty pics as well as pre-puberty pics. And if you ask me how I know about it? Well, I see through Mithila’s specs that so-and-so liked so-and-so’s pic from December 2012. And worser still, commented on a pic from November 2011. You don’t need to be a smart ass to figure that much out.
(y) Harmonic Anthropos :
I like these people. Even Mithila likes these people. They either post lyrics of their favourite songs. Or share videos of their fave bands. Or even better, compose music on their own. I wish Mithila’s friend list had more such people out there!
This completes the series of Being Social v/s Being Super Social. I really do hope you enjoyed it. And today, I think , Mithila is planning to come back from her hiatus. So if you could kindly take some time off, and tell her about how awesomely I’ve been handling her accounts and all.. It would be a real blessing! 😀
