There are a number of truths in this world, an undeniable one being that White girls love Facebook. And not only do they love them some Facebook, but they love doing certain things while accessing it. The latter is a realization I subconsciously came to long ago.
This banter probably seems pretty random, but it actually stems from a fellow WordPress blogger’s post I read earlier this week about “15 Things White Girls Love to Do on Facebook”, which has since blown up online. (Click the photo above to read the post and see how truly guilty the White girls in your life are.)
Given that a large percentage of my friends (and family members) are White girls and I’ve grown quite accustomed to their social networking ways, I believe I’m fully justified in concurring with the blogger. After reading her post, I’m frankly unsure how you can argue with the points she makes.
If you haven’t seen her post yet, you’ve gotta check this shit out. Each of her 15 points could not be more accurate.
So many White girls knowingly do these things and are obviously repeat offenders. But I can easily say that while White girls may hate being called out like they so glaringly are in this post, they’d loathe the idea of not posting meaningless statuses and pointless pics even more.
And while I know many of my White girl friends are guilty of most of these 15 offenses (several girls I’ve talked to have laughingly agreed), I will concede that more than a few of these points are applicable to Facebook users irregardless of gender, race, etc. Furthermore, despite my occasional White tendencies, I will also assert that it’s a rare occasion when I can be found guilty of these offenses.
My favorites are #1, #6, #8 and #15, although #3 and #5 are ALL too common among the white female race. And I honestly believe that #12 applies more to Twitter than Facebook. Let me know via a comment or the next time we talk what your favs are!
I’ve also decided that one of my holiday break projects is going to be finding examples of each of her 15 points, which I’ll then proceed to blog to prove how very spot on she is here… and for your personal enjoyment, of course.
See you on Facebook.
