Comment of the Week: Why Do People Lose Their Minds on Facebook?

This week’s comment of the week comes from “Public Pearl,” who wrote in the “I Created A Fake Boyfriend on Facebook to Make my Ex Jealous” thread:

“I don’t use Facebook, but I do read a lot of advice columns online (it’s my guilty pleasure!), and I swear, half the letters I see are some variation of “I did something stupid on Facebook.” What is it about Facebook that makes people lose their damn minds? Turn off the computer, turn off the cell phone, go outside and get some fresh air until whatever stupid impulse passes.”

A-Men! It’s 65 degrees here in NYC today — the warmest it’s been in months — so I’m taking the afternoon off and following this wonderful advice to go outside and get some (much needed) fresh air myself.

    Spot on Pearl, were we in the same neighborhood (northern California) I’d ask to meet up for coffee in the park. Congratulations on the commendation.

    Loved your picture & stepping outside is the best. Even when overcast and rainy like it is today. Loving your new site. Have a great weekend.
