Using Facebook for Revenge

Philippines
April 13, 2012 8:42pm CST
Facebook has become an easy tool for people to post their hatred on someone or something. Some would even post defamatory statements about their enemies to tell the world what an idiot they are. I myself have made sublte posts about the bad feelings I have about people or things, but I don't name names. I have also read posts that I knew were directed on me, but they can't tell me directly. What would cowards do, without Facebook?

That's true. It doesn't just make the offended look bad in front of the world, but it also tells of how shallow they are for posting it on facebook instead of confronting them.

Most people do not have the balls to actually confront their enemies - so some resort to gossip and start malicious rumors about people they hate. When social networking sites started, they found a bigger and easier way to do this. I guess they found a faster and better way of showing their insecurities to the world. But one thing's for sure, Facebook or no Facebook, these cowards would rather die loathing than confronting the object or subject of their hatred. Too afraid of the real deal. :)

These are the reason's I rarely check my facebook anymore, I wasn't personally having issues with anyone but several of the people on my friends list were constantly bashing on one person or another. It's sad that the only way they can feel better about a situation is to post something for everyone to see. My mom and dad taught me growning up that when you have an issue with someone that's the person you go to, not the internet where everyone can see and judge you and that person.

In my opinion nobody deserves public humiliation, especially not when they can't defend themselves properly or they can't face the one who's defaming them or makins snarky remarks. I do the codified/subtle posts, too, if something is really heavy on my mind, but I wouldn't call names, That's for the cowards, who switch into kingoftheworld-mode when they are safe, and when they are not, they do't do anything. I find that pitiful.

I use facebook to get visitors to my site, sell my affiliate campaign, getting leads, etc. My first account give me so much benefit, too bad its get hacked. If I deal with that kind of person, I will remove from my list after I report them to the admin.

Sadly a lot of people do that and used Facebook to spread their message of hatred or anger to someone they have a rift with. I've known a lot of people who do that but I never want to interfere with them because I have no idea what they are going through.

I know of a few people who seem to use facebook to post statuses about people, some call the person out and others don't. I think it's immature and I'd never even do that. There is one person who is pretty much obvious with the way she "calls" people out and you can see her own insecurities and jealousy.

If I have had a problem with a person in the past,I have always told them to their face.I think while there is facebook there will always be people posting things on there about other people, as well as playing other back stabbing games.Mind you face book can also show the people that are two faced as well, as they tend to talk to the people that they have and are still stabbing in the back to other people, so they look like right idiots at the end of the day.
