Scoot on ~ the war for sanity on social media

ImageI can deal with a lot of things. I can deal with most, in fact. But today, while convincing myself that Facebook and Youtube videos count as studying, I came across another rant topic. Do prepare yourself, world.

HASHTAGS.

For God’s sake who came up with these things? Yes, I understand the purpose, and the fact that it’s meant to link collective intrests on posts and photos. But if I see another picture like the one you saw at the top of this post with any of the following hashtags: #selfie #nofilters #nomakeup #clothes #collar #peace #hippies #photography #portrait #faces #duckface #duck #nature #lamp #light #inspired #love #happiness #room #me #pretty #beautiful #youarebeautiful #mirror #mirrormirroronthewall #snowwhite #huntsman #movies #kristenstewart #twilight #twihard…

No lies, this is what I have seen.

If these hashtags are meant to link common intrests, then why the hell are we talking about snow white and hippies and twilight all at once? I mean, if a pot smoking hippie wanted to find out what the best display for his weed truck was, and typed in #hippie and got this instead? Man, I’d be disappointed. People don’t need to point out that the photograph is of themselves.  WE SEE YOU, MMKAY? Like really, just because you have a lamp in the room you’re standing in doesn’t make you an inspiration…it’s really just a lamp.

Instagram does not make you a photographer! Please could people stop hashtagging themselves as photographers when all they do is pose in front of a mirror and press the take button? Seriously, this is affecting my sanity!

I mean, it’s hard to remain sane on social networks these days. You have Facebook which now uses these dreaded things, people linking their twitter to their Facebook accounts (Why would you even do that?) and people linking their Instagram to Facebook, using hashtags like #Instaheart #instadaily #instagram #instalove #instaparty #instafood

GOSH DAMMIT I GET IT

Please, don’t be that guy >.<

Anyway, that’s all for now, I’m going back to hit the books…I have finals in 3 weeks. Wish me luck? I love you 😀

All my love, all the time
