Terrible things people post on social media

What is the deal with these FaceBook stories? One of my friends keeps posting them. Basically him blinking at the camera on a train with a caption ‘train’ or ‘so tired’ or him sat next to his little girl just staring at the camera. There are loads of them. He is pretty fucking dull, but I am not sure if I am missing something else. Is there a point to them?

read something once that said ‘bernie bros’ originated from the clinton campaign, something she tried before with ‘obama boys’, not that that necessarily negates it, clinton may have identified something but it could also be just have been a campaign strategy so I am always skeptical of treating it as being an authentic thing

It’s just ripping off Instagram stories which themselves were just ripping off Snapchat.

I really like Instagram cos it feels like it has some substance to it, but the stories are generally the worst kind of “TOP BRUNCH GAME :ok_hand:” throwaway trash

I think they show the user who has watched their stories, so imagine they provide a bit of positive feedback when the hit of a few likes has started to diminish

So me clicking on it a couple of times and muttering ‘what the FUCK is this boring shit for?’ is actually encouraging him?

I’ve done myself there haven’t I.

:smiley: what do people actually see in him?!


#2055

I mean, aside from the Catholicism, he’s pretty much the walking embodiment of the past these people idolise.

Found this quite interesting
