Facebook started something unfortunate. They’ve started doing this “Back on this day” campaign, which means they’ll pull up statuses, pictures, and conversations you had on your timeline on from exactly 1+ years ago, as long as it’s the same month and day. It’s been going on for awhile now, but I just realized how inconvenient it is. Namely because I was a *slightly* dramatic teenager who should have had a Facebook account until I was 18 years old.
Exhibit A, to prove my point.
Please note the two vastly different moods posted within a 35 minute time frame.
And, although it enhanced my status “technique”, I didn’t purposefully write in third person for the effect. That was a Facebook requirement way back in the day.
It is slightly shocking to have these “memories” up roll up in my timeline, because I really don’t remember being that person who created ambiguous, angry statuses for all my 185 friends to see. In fact, I don’t remember being that angry of a 13 year old.
But. The evidence clearly speaks otherwise.
