Default What do you post on facebook/twitter?

What types of stuff do you post on social media sites?

I used to post random cool phrases that came up in my mind. I put up wise quotes that I read and wise phrases that I come up with.. Is it weird to put up stuff on facebook that is not "Hey, I got smashed last night" or "I got high on marijuana yesterday" or vacation pictures? I find pot-heads and people that get drunk to the point of passing out as a turn off. I see lots of people from HS days posting those types of nonsense. As a social introvert, I don't understand how that is even interesting or knowledgeable. Makes some of them look like fools..

For example, I posted few months back something like "Memories keep the past alive. Dreams and educating yourself keeps the present alive. Inspiration and innovation is what drives humanity forward." I didn't receive any responses. Then I posted some hate stuff of athletes getting overpaid, and I received quite a few responses and "Likes". I am thinking of pulling back on posts now - seems like people don't want to read anything wise or wise quotes or w/e.

They don't want to read about inspiration, education, greatness of life, working hard, dreaming, innovation, science, etc. People only care about vacations, partying, getting high, buying expensive clothes/etc, making money, etc. Am I hanging out with the wrong people or is it just how people are nowadays? Maybe I'm too socially introverted to understand people at all....

"Smart" thoughts are not that interesting too, my friend. Sometimes people are not in the mood reading them.


That especially depends on what person you are also. I always laugh when some stupid hoe posts a great intellectual quote with her comments under.

I used to post inane thoughts... lusting after celebs, random lovelorn rants, etc.

SMH, now I just post youtube videos of songs, movie scenes, and sports highlights basically. Sometimes I throw up a comedic picture or inspirational "Keep Calm And ____" joints.

I might start sharing lewd photos from "big booty b*tches* type communities.

I don't really post anything on Facebook. I'm usually on Twitter when I'm watching the NBA.

I don't use Facebook.

Twitter is cool but I just sort of forgot about it. It's good for following what's going on in the world.

I believe there's too much social media online nowadays. I can't connect with people through the Internet like I did when I was a kid on MySpace and aol's instant messenger, aim.

Sorry your thread was a way to vent my discontent with the all too much in your face social media.

How many facebook friends do you have?

I figured you were somewhat socially introverted by being offended over getting no likes and comments.

Default Re: What do you post on facebook/twitter?

I post a pic of my pregnant belly every week.

And then I complain on father's day about how my baby's daddy aint around.

And then I ask everyone on facebook what to do about my child still pissing his bed at 7 years old.

For real though, I usually make posts about where I'm at and my travels and important news about my life (like moving to Australia type important...not I just had coffee important). I've posted where I'm at before and a buddy texted me telling me he was around there too. And we ended up hanging out. Facebook is a great tool for that. Not necessarily attention whoring
