FACE your life, stop FACEBOOKing it..!!

WARNING: This post is written for mass not for a single one. So if you think that you are the central theme of this post, than rather than commenting here, please be mature enough to face your problems rather than face-booking them.

Also, with this, I don’t intent to hurt someone’s feelings with this post. This is just my personal opinion.


From the time, I‘ve been into book reviewing, one of the most common things I have noticed is the kiddish behavior of people of the writing industry.

A simple fight or argument is posted on Facebook along with the snapshots. 


Aren’t we sensible enough to handle things personally? Leave being personally, don’t we know how to handle things professionally because reviewing a book or promoting it is a kind of professional relationship which an author-reviewer-publisher shares. Not even a single day is passed without any such argument posts on Facebook which not only degrade reputation of people associated with it but provide complete entertainment to people friends with them in their profile. (Also, the one posting the status or the snapshots already blocks the people who are convicts according to the status writer. I mean, how will the person related with your argument be bothered when he/she is not even present on your profile?)


How can you construct your own reputation degrading someone else’s? Do you post arguments that you (maybe) have with your parents? Or siblings or anyone you respect that too tagging them with maybe voice recordings?

I think I would never want to degrade someone’s reputation to build my own; maybe I am sensible enough to understand the fact that Facebook is a networking platform that helps you connect personally, professionally with people and not a platform to post abusive, revenge posts about people whom you held a personal or professional grudge against.

Just Imagine, Mr Modi sharing bad remarks about other country’s PM on fb. Hah!!(That would be fun too, but I think he is mature enough to know how things should work)

I am not against sharing the bad happening in the society on FB, just make sure that the things you share are major enough to get posted i.e. those that can’t be solves personally.

A simple plea to everyone, please maintain some ethics and standards of the WRITING industry and solve your problems on personal chats rather than creating an entertaining scene online.

FACE your life yourself guys, stop FACEBOOKing it.

  1. I agree. But there are 'Crabs' and there are 'Ants' in every society. Crabs though bigger in size, remain in a basket and die. Ants together can move a mountain and thrive. We all know how Crabs and Ants behave. Choice is ours - what we want to do. Help each other... and thrive or Fight... and perish.
