Woody & Ted: "Status Update"
Posted: Wednesday March 31st, 2010 by

If you have me friended (OR are a "fan" of GU Comics) on Facebook, you've probably noticed that I don't post many status updates. The reason is simple. Little inconsequential messages or status updates that are nothing but whining drive me nuts. I also dislike intentionally vague updates that transfer no useful information about the situation. It all just kind of reads to me as "I had nothing better to do so I figured I post something to facebook".

I realized this morning though that when I open Google Chat to talk to Taks, I kind of do the same thing. This morning I logged on and literally the first things out of my virtual mouth were "Overslept. No joke idea again." It's exactly the kind of crap I see and dislike on Facebook. Realizing the parallel I let Taks know that apparently she was my personal facebook. Not having a joke idea (obviously) this worked as a decent stand in that I figured a lot of you could probably relate to.

And just so you know, I've actually hidden some of my own family members because all they ever seemed to post was cryptic whining. Yeah, I know... I'm a bad person. Let me just go run off and update my Facebook status so everyone there knows it too.

So, anyone else willing to admit that they've started facebooking in their real life conversations?

While I have your attention... somewhat, I''d like to make mention of the new "Share This" button above the Comic. When you click it you get a little drop down of links to share the comic on different social networking sites. I'm hoping you'll put it to good use. Let me know (via email or PM) if there are any problems or if there are other links you'd like me to consider adding.
