Those annoying shares

Those annoying shares

Woe betide me I have kept my wall open on FB where I am flooded with sites that others want to share with me. I reluctantly opt for 'not any more' kind of a tab one sees there and I am sure friends will not like it as I am doing it without their knowledge. I wonder how many are getting annoyed with me when I share too. I can sympathise or empathise with them as having your page flooded with stuff that you really do not want to see can be kind of annoying. So I ask you a question. Why do you share when you definitely know those shares have not been opened which is evident from the lack of increase in views.

I have stopped sharing.

I don't know that when I share something I think someone else may find interesting or useful whether or not what I share will actually be viewed. I also share from Persona Paper to aid in site recognition, even by those who don't click through to the post.

What about those who clearly do not like their wall flooded with shares they are not interested in?

I don't quite agree with the idea that sharing boosts business but promoting does.

I don't go on facebook very often. It's gotten more boring than ever and I never really was a big fan of it. Too much bragging and things shared that I think should be kept private.

And how much of that is true is yet another story. I am seriously thinking of pulling out of FB and keep in touch individually through emails.

It is really annoying, i can feel you. especially when some events or news are coming up, people love to share without thinking of others how we can get annoyed.

How do you know they are not interested? Maybe they just don't have anything to say and clicked away to see what you posted before they "liked" it.

I go by the status of my views.

I am not addicted to posting just about anything on Facebook, for that matter. I minimize my presence there and my settings in very private. I review whatever is being tagged on my wall.

I have decided to deactivate my account there as I am losing interest.

I don't flood people's walls -- I selectively share different things on different sites.
