I have come to the conclusion that there are two types of people on Facebook. There are diary people and there are photo album people, and I guess one very small group of ninja people, (the people who have a Facebook and watch everyone but never post a thing so you forget they are watching) but mostly two types of people. Diary people are the types of people who post multiple times a day, every day. Dairy people do not simply update us on what they are up to but tell us about their deepest darkest feelings, make sweeping declarations about life and how people should behave, and say whatever needs to be said, no matter how outrageous. And then there are photo album people. Photo album people never post more than twice a week. Their posts usually consist of more pictures than actual text and these pictures have far less selfies than the average diary person. Photo album people use Facebook as a way to document what they find important to keep people updated on the milestones of their life and have something to look back at, like a photo album. Diary people aren’t usually very concerned about the feedback on their post, their Facebook, even though public, is more for them, like a diary.
I am a photo album person. I like to look through my newsfeed once in a while like I would a photo album. I can always look at my Facebook without feeling the urge to delete a post I made. I do not have what it takes to be a diary person. I once found a diary I had from when I was younger and could not get passed the third page. The person who wrote those entries seemed foreign, and I was embarrassed for myself. I quickly disposed of the diary and moved on. If I was a diary person on Facebook my newsfeed would have less on it than it does now because I would continually be going back to my page to delete yesterdays post. I would change to a ninja person on Facebook before becoming a diary person.
