Love it, loathe it, or ignore it; these are your options. To those who ignore it, you have already read too far. So …
What’s not to love?
It is a great way to connect with people in a way that 1000 words may not, unless you are a literary writer. I love to see my family, their smiles, their little joys, their daily lives. It is personal. It works.
It is an excellent medium (although I have never actually met one) to capture a moment, something beautiful – as attested by any number of sunrise and sunsets – or a scene worth sharing, an event from a personal perspective.
A holiday, a wedding, a meeting, a meal. Friends together.
It can be a lot of fun – silly captions and word plays.
All good harmless fun, promoting connectivity otherwise not easily available, and a chance to be a little creative. So …
What’s not to hate?
Selfies – an ugly obsession, even if you are beautiful.
The perception that everything you do is amazing, every place you go is exotic. Heaven help your friends if they can’t match your fabulous life – which I happen to know you don’t lead.
Photos of the food you are about to consume – when else would you invite the world to your table, and how big can a steak be?
Sayings as banal as they are short. Solomon would blanch.
Likes. How many did I get? They always get more! How can I boost my likes?
It has been 10 minutes since I last looked. See you later.
