Talking Into The Void

I plod ahead like the voice crying out in the wilderness.  Hello?  Is there anybody listening?  Probably not yet.

So why would you want to waste your time like that, asks no one.  Well, jeepers mercy me, I don’t know.  I guess I have a lot to say, and I am only concerned with reaching those that may be interested.  I have also had it up to my ears with social media as in Facebook, Twitter, Snap Chat, etc.

It has all gotten pretty ridiculous.  Sure, I know, you can fix your settings so that only you yourself can see what you post.  You can make it so that only friends, or only family, or only friends of friends and friends of the family and the family of friends of the family can see what you post.

The problem is, you can see what other people post.  I know that you can fix that in your settings, too.  Friend this guy, but don’t follow him.  Only relevant posts will show up in your news feed.  Of course you don’t actually get to decide what relevant means.  It is a lot of work for a minuscule return.

While I relish the opportunity to be a judgmental old curmudgeon, I hate to find that people I once held in high regard have no clue when it comes to syntax, grammar, and spelling.  I really do not appreciate unsolicited points of view being shoved at me on a daily basis.  You can also bet the farm that I am not really interested what happened to your third cousin, twice removed, via my force fed news feed.

Therefore, I will use this platform to exercise my right to free speech.  If, in fact, there are any interested parties, they will be welcome to join the fray.  You do not have to friend me, you do not have to follow me, and you do not even have to know me.  Many of my “friends” on social media did not, nor I them, for that matter.
