The Strange Facebook Posts That Thrill Me






Article by Wendy McCance

It’s late at night and I was checking out Facebook looking at the latest news feeds from friends and family. It’s interesting to note, as I look through the updates what I pass over looking at and what catches my attention.

Another goofy video of something or other -PASS

An image with an inspiring sentiment (they all sound the same these days) reach for the stars, surround yourself with good people, believe in yourself and so on -PASS


and then…

and I know this is going to sound strange, someone will post a pic of something going on in their lives and they are in their home and I can check out their living space on a microscopic level and really see what they live with and what interests them. It fascinates me to see where people live and what they put inside their homes – Yes, I’ll stop and check it out, but not to look at what the person posting wants you to view, but what is behind them. That is what I want to see.

I also like those rare moments when in the middle of the night you are on Facebook and you feel as though you are the only one awake, and then, someone will post something rather trivial but fascinating about being up as well. Something like, I can’t sleep and just grabbed a spoon and some cookie dough ice cream or just staring at the ceiling because I can’t sleep. Is there anyone else out there experiencing this as well? – I love these random rumblings.

Share a book, a movie, some music you just fell in love with and can’t get out of your head. – I want to be obsessed with it as well.

But, please, please, please, no more …
