There’s a reason to this

T

Today is the 11th of November 2012, it’s 11:31 am GMT now.Today is the anniversary of Polish independence, The Manchester Ship canal was being built, and 4 years ago, the QE2 Set sail on her final voyage.And it’s armistice day.

I was looking at people’s messages on Facebook about today, all of it the same ho ha ‘RIP our brave soldiers’ ‘God bless’.Even¬†Facebook¬†pages were getting in on it.

Now, there’s nothing wrong with it, it is a special day and lots of people died, and it would be wrong of me not to think of them for two mins (which i did do).But what annoys me about people putting all these comments and pictures on Facebook is this:

  • Fishing for likes.
  • They really don’t care.

cannot help but think some people are putting these pictures and statuses on just to be liked, or to make people think ‘they care’.Sad to say, they probably don’t care much and are trying to use dead soldiers to get likes.This is why i posted no pictures, or made no status about it, because im not fishing for likes or trying to be liked by people.

ALSO, i’m not saying that everyone on my Facebook are fishing for likes.There are some genuinely nice ones (Natalie’s and Amy’s in particular), and its a minority of people fishing for likes, but you have to face the fact, some people are.

Hate to be negative, but i think it’s good to share opinion, otherwise people cannot get to know you and how you see things.
