Do you see updates like this on Facebook?
Every day, thousands of poorly written, copied statuses are posted on Facebook. Copied statuses suffer the worst fate of having no creativity, and they are often ignored. 90% of people won’t post these updates. Post this status and take a stand.
Ugh. I despise those updates.
Way to suck the fun out of Facebook.
I get it that there are causes you support and want to raise awareness about. We all have similar passion for issues that move us. But Facebook, Twitter, or whatever social network gives you the chance to use your own words and creativity to share your experience.
Don’t just parrot the words of others. Use this unique opportunity to change hearts and minds with your story. Why do you believe in this cause? Why should I? What can we do to make a difference besides mindlessly updating our Facebook status that only a limited network will see?
Real change requires real action. Posting to Facebook is a step, but it’s a very minor step towards real change.
So stop copying other people’s crappy statuses, shut your laptop, and get to work making a difference in the things you believe in.
How will you make this crappy world a better place?
