Thoughts in the mind of a scatter brained workaholic single mom

Facebook a Cultural Phenomenon

     I notice co-workers on Facebook at work all the time. During break everyone sits around the table staring at their cell while chatting with each other. Nobody telling of what is going on on the cell.  Why?  There is television in the room.  There are humans in close encounters that we know and can communicate with.  Do we need the comfort of knowing we can talk every second of the day with our closer friends and loved ones?  While working can look at the latest status of your daughter to feel comfortable knowing she is still in this word somewhere looking at her cell also. We are all different close together and far apart. All on the same thing doing the same- checking the Facebook status of friends and family.  Will this continue until all we do is check the status until that will become our status? 

      “Founded in 2004, Facebook’s mission is to make the world more open and connected. People use Facebook to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what’s going on in the world, and to share and express what matters to them.”(Facebook newsroom fact sheet, http://newsroom.fb.com/content/default.aspx?NewsAreaId=22 , retrieved April 15, 2012) So we continuously sit and share what matters to us in a status hundreds of miles away, hoping possibly it matters to them too.  Why?  There are others in the room in close proximity? Do we matter to them as much? Or are we bored, and it’s a chance to break away from the mundane routine of life at work and step into the status of others far off?

    I want to express some thanks to the writer just for bailing me out of this type of issue. As a result of scouting through the online world and finding opinions that were not powerful, I was thinking my life was done. Living without the answers to the problems you have sorted out through your good guideline is a critical case, and those that would have in a negative way affected my career if I hadn’t come across your website. Your own personal expertise and kindness in dealing with every part was vital. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a subject like this. I’m able to at this time look forward to my future. Thank you so much for your high quality and sensible guide. I won’t hesitate to suggest your site to anybody who needs to have recommendations about this subject matter.
