I used to criticize Facebook. I even deleted my first account and wrote a post about how to succeed in leaving the social network for real.
When I came back I realized that little had changed. It was still about people posting their lives: The parties they went, the places they visited, and tones of pictures about how fabulous they looked. Interestingly, a lot of people was getting tired of this and stopped login in.
However, there was also another kind of people in Facebook that it wasn’t there before. Now there was people creating a debate around lots of topics: Politics, Public Health, Education, Spirituality, Consumerism, Economics, Social issues, Yoga, Music industry, Science, etc. Now there were Facebook Pages!
I must confess that I follow more FB Pages than people. Because, being honest, you don’t need FB to keep your friends or lover informed about your life (I still don’t get why couples express their feelings on FB!?!?!?) You can call, send a whatsApp or write an e-mail.
BUT… it’s true that FB is still good for sharing something: It’s good for sharing THE life (not YOUR life)!
To share THE life means sharing something that someone might like or find useful.
It means sharing things that either inspired and/or taught you something, and that could inspire or teach something to others.
It means sharing quotes, art, knowledge, news, ideas, events, inspiration, tools, social causes, etc.
The world is made of thousands of things that may touch your soul/brain in some way and could touch someone else’s too.
Because anything life is made of it’s sharable!
“So what is wrong with sharing MY life, Daniela?” You may ask.
There’s nothing wrong with it. But I bet you have something more to give!
