Facebook, How I Love/Hate thee

I am addicted.
I thought I would never be a FB person. If fact I couldn't really even figure it out in the beginning. Now I am a loser who knows about peoples lives from Facebook posts. It is usually funny little tidbits that make me laugh. I enjoy keeping in touch with people I live too far away from and sharing quirky photos of the kids.
Never did I image some of the bad stuff that would come from it. As everyone knows I am going through a divorce and I actually had to walk away from Facebook to avoid the drama and crazy talk I was receiving. I still get a random comment when someone reads about Mr. FB but I just say-I don't want to hear it. "Back in the day" before you knew about every thought and movement I think things were much easier.
Basically the Internet has become a weapon for people in my situation. Luckily I have not had to deal with this too much myself. I just have to deal with the gossip mill which is in high gear in our area because it is such a small town.
On the flip side, I have connected with some people which have brought me some laughs and entertainment so I guess there is a good and bad side to everything. So if you want to share some laughs, chat away with me but if you plan on bringing your swill take it somewhere else.
Happy Facebooking!
