DisLike or Like Dis ?

Sunday, July 18, 2010

You can quit reading this post now, if you belong to any of these categories;

1. You are a Facebook illiterate or you don’t have a Facebook account.

2. You are dumb and you don’t get

SFT jokes (which btw obviously makes you dumb)

3. You still use Hi5/orkut.

And by chance if you belong to the third category, you should jump from the nearest balcony and die, because you are just about 6-7 years behind where the world is right now. So by the time you start using facebook, we will have our children getting married and reproducing online, now don’t ask me how is that possible? Because anything is possible, I mean Mads recently found out that Suniel Shetty is the brand ambassador of some xyz brand of shades, now beat that!

Now, coming back to this post,SFT thinks that there are zillions of Fan pages and groups on FB which people join/like and forget. So what is the use of joining them in the first place itself? You want to spam your wall? No! I just join them and block the feed. So again, why do you join them? Err no idea…I just like to! Wow that’s like the coolest logic ever!

If we break it down in to the types we will have these:

The Essentials: Schools/colleges/universities, TV shows, favourite stars, personalities, books, writers, etc. Which you join because you belong to them or like them and you can probably get the latest information from them, find your old buddies. It’s all useful and one of the basics of any social networking site. So if you only join these groups and pages, you just had a light escape ;)

The Not-So-Essentials: The perfect example would be ‘tera hone laga hoon’ group. Okay you saw the movie, you liked the song, and you drooled over Mr. Kapoor/Miss Kaif, now what? You will go to that community and tell the fans how much you liked this song? Those guys probably know it already, they are JUST like you.

The Non-Essentials: This whole post is to emphasize on this particular category, SFT has been observing this bakwas phenomenon since long, although one of its co-founders might just get MAD and kill the author of this post. Anyway putting my life at risk, I just want to give ‘thumbs down’, for these type of groups/pages:-

“After putting the toothpaste on the brush, I put water on it”- OMG you put water? I put Harpic, maybe that’s why my teeth shine more.

“Sometimes when I walk, I put my feet on those square shaped tiles”- Great, so did you add that in your resume?

“The teacher asking you a question and your friend next to you whispering the answer”- So learn from him/her instead of making a FB page about it.

“Thank you Pakistan, for taking Sania Mriza, now take Rakhi Sawant also”, yeah and take this jobless person also who made this Fan page and all those who joined it.

“I want to talk to you, but I feel I am annoying you”- Oh, well then maybe you are.

“The guy who discovered milk, what the hell was he trying to do with the cow”- How the hell did you think of that? You are no less pervert either.

“Hi, I am a boy, I will say I love you but when you fall for it I will walk away”- Ok, all the drama aside, you are a girl who made/joined this community, right? Then why are you lying?

"I say "OUCH" before I'm even sure it hurt... just in case"- I will say OUCH on your behalf after you are dead in my hands, just for this!

I can really go on and on and on about such pages, but there is hardly any point. People like them and they join them and then forget about them. It’s not awesome to join all the communities you like for like 10 seconds. Else why do you think Mr. FB has a limit for joining pages and groups too (How did I know? Yes, from the same source you found out from!)
