That's a brilliant way to put it. In retrospect, it was really weird that people posted intimate details about their lives for strangers to see, especially older people who didn't see most of their "friends" regularly. We whippersnappers were the more normal ones, posting about things in our lives that were probably relevant to the 90% of the people who would see them who we would see everyday. Now that I'm older, and I don't see nearly as many people outside of a professional context, it's suddenly much less relevant to me what anyone is doing with their lives.
I still use Facebook for messenger, but that's it, I don't follow anyone, even my friends. I should probably do another purge of the ol' friends list though, and get back under 100 people.
