Thanks Facebook, I know I’m unpopular.

How do people get 50+ likes on their posts? Seriously. If I post something I know it’ll probably get 6 likes tops, and most of those likes will be from my relatives. I don’t even know why I care about likes since it’s such an insignificant part of my life. It’s not like this is going to be something I can list under the accomplishment section of my resume. On top of that, I’m an introvert by nature so I post once in a blue moon.

I sit around and spend hours on my phone scrolling through my news feed looking at ridiculously photogenic pictures of people, memes, and the occasional “support my trip to Italy!” posts. It’s not that I even find the majority of stuff being posted interesting but it almost makes me feel like I’m being somewhat social. Or at least as social as I want to be. I’m the kind of person that wants to have small gatherings, sit around watch movies, and have takeout.

Now, don’t even get me started on when my birthday comes around. I seriously consider deactivating my Facebook that day because I don’t want to be reminded how unpopular I am. My sister will get maybe 70 happy birthday posts but I’ll be lucky to get 12. Again, why do I care? I am surrounded by great people and I’m not bored of my life. I think it just makes me feel like I might be missing out on some things. Not everyone in their 20’s has to love going to clubs, getting drunk, and partying, right?

Perhaps I’m overthinking this too much and everything on Facebook is more of a “show” people are putting on for the world. For the most part I am content living in my little introverted bubble.

    That’s funny. I understand the rant and will say this, having written on the subject of page views recently. Relish that interesting fun life you have in your offline world. There are people who need virtual reality to feel like something’s happening. There is a general strain on everyone’s energy with all the me me me posting and one day, when the bottom falls out, be prepared to offer an alternative. Warm regards. x SB
