Do you not feel compelled to share your life on the Internet via Facebook? Then you might be a psychopath!
According to recent media reports, an increasing number of employers and psychologists believe that Facebook has now become so prevalent in society, that people not on the social networking site should be viewed with “suspicion”
Sure, the readers here already think I’m crazy- which is a label that somewhat fits… but now, since I don’t understand why anyone would want to be on Facebook, in particular, and would NEVER open an account there, that makes me a psychopath?
That’s the police state we’re living in today folks- where the very act of not following the herd and becoming part of a “CIA Data Mining” operation is a sign that something is “wrong with you” and you must be “hiding” something.
Maybe those of us not on Facebook just don’t happen to suffer from “Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”
A report originating from Germany went so far as to say the first sign a person may be a mass murderer is that they don’t have a Facebook account. Using as examples that Batman Shooter James Holmes & Norwegian shooter Andres Brevik didn’t have Facebook. It
then made the leap that there’s something “wrong” with you for not being on the social networking site.
They must be stockholders hoping to scare people into joining the site so the stock price doesn’t fall anymore.
Clients have had their probations revoked and been thrown in jail for lying to their probation officers about their whereabouts while posting their exploits online. I recently had a guy say he had no money to pay his fines who was thrown in jail because he posted a picture of himself with about 10 grand online only to have the Prosecutor present that picture to the Judge as we were pleaing for more time to pay.
Hope he enjoyed his stay at the Wyandotte County Jail for that one!
Facebook will probably go the way of MySpace at some point and become a “digital graveyard.” This endless fascination with sharing intimate details of ones private life with the world can’t last forever.
