Six of One, Half Dozen the Other

A Novel Idea – Gratis

Posted by middlerage on May 13, 2014

My experience with social media, (okay Facebook – I don’t tweet and I deleted my linkedin account because it was useless and invasive), is that people are almost exclusively positive and complimentary. I can count on one, maybe two, fingers the number of times – in six years – I’ve seen a FB friend complain about a spouse. Even then it was not really complaining, just some undiplomatic and public exasperation. Of the “Can I get an amen?” variety.

So here is my free idea for you book writers out there: something is coming; some kind of pandemic or maybe a zombie apocalypse; and it is first evidenced by folks getting progressively more snarky on social media. The imaginary Rubicon of airing your dirty laundry gets crossed, spouse bashing and friend bashing becomes prevalent and progressively more vicious.

Then it goes offline. [cue ominous music]
