Facebook Can Cause Family Problems

Facebook Can Cause Family Problems

I read a piece of advice from Washington Post author Carolyn Hax, published on Monday in The Plain Dealer. An angry mother Carolyn wrote and wanted to know how to deal with their meddling family. The Mad Mother's Daughter has posted a Facebook status about her engagement. Instead of calling grandma and other family members before using Facebook to announce their imminent bliss, she used social media. A cousin recognized the status and took it upon himself to call Grandma and tell her the news. Now the mother of the bride is upset that her daughter had no opportunity to call Grandma and deliver the good news to her. Who told the daughter to use Facebook to announce her engagement? If it was so important that she told Grandma herself, why did not she do it?

Facebook has become a "busy body". of the 21st century. Years ago, people did not know what was really going on in families, unless there was a family gossip that spread news like wildfire. Fast forward to the present and in less than 2.5 seconds, you can see your sister and husband divorcing for cheating on her in the last three years!

Maybe people today reveal too much information about themselves. Finally, employers search social media sites to determine which employees and potential employees they are using. When you publish pictures of yourself showing that you have been wasted on a cruise ship, your family, friends, co-workers, and bosses may form a new opinion about you. What happened to personalize your personal life?

It's interesting how the mother accused her family of interfering when it was her daughter who committed the faux pas. first of all. If grandma has priority, the daughter should have picked up the phone and called her grandmother. The mother should be grateful that her daughter grandma has not sent SMS!
The next time you get upset about annoying family members, ask yourself why you use Facebook to post personal information about yourself. Maybe it's time to cool it off with social media and return to a time when people are staring at their own business. Stop reading what everyone else is doing and focus on your own life for a change. If you do not do so, it could pass you by and your Facebook status will not make a difference!
