Facebook & Life Lessons

There's this winter coming back in city and I am back in my jacket and heavy-cute socks that makes me feel like holidays again (Let's just not mourn over this part) and I'm going college everyday in crap winds in crap mood with a better-than-ever playlist. While I try enjoy my winter that has become a bad girl in Karachi, I have this little spark of creepy stuff staying in my mind for shit reasons. Firstly, let's talk about something creepy. RUNAWAY. Well, don't.

Facebook has NEVER been my favorite even after saying all this bad-bad stuff about this social media, I'm still there and having fun with "friends"in my friends-list and still doing all the trendy Facebook stuff. There was this notification that said that one of my ex-high school fellow liked my post. He's not a Facebook (Or any kind of) friend anymore after I finished high school, I simply kicked almost all of the high school friendships out of the window and he was one of them. Back to the post. I never remembered what the heck was that. I clicked it and guess what, it was 3 years old post in which I had wished him birthday.

I was like, thank you for liking it after 3 years.

Because I'm just so awesome to be remembered.

Then finally,

I mean dudes that's not how you do it, you just don't. If I wished you in 2012, you're just NOT supposed to like it in 2015 when we're not even Facebook friends or anything. There are some options in my mind that should work right now:
I should creep out.
I shouldn't creep out.
I should think of a reason for creeping out.
But it's just a notification.
Yeah, a little harmless, useless notification.
But this makes no sense.
Why I think this makes sense?
Well, this doesn't.
Hey it does.
Well, hell.

So when I was untangling this I-AM-USELESS kinda issue in my head, I landed on this point that even using Facebook can give you some life lessons that you can HAVE TO pass to your coming generations for a better life. For example:

-Don't like 3 years old Facebook posts of someone who isn't your friend anymore. Nope nah no no.
-Don't let your parents stalk anyone using YOUR account. Another nope nah no no.
-Keep your name in real alphabets instead of writing it like @r33b@ (That's Areeba FYI)
-Trying to pull out family fight on Facebook is DEADLY AND HARMFUL
-Never ever unfriend someone from your mom's family side or your dad's family side or JUST YOUR FAMILY. They hurt back in real.
-Never start a religious fight on Facebook. Honestly, no points to heaven. 
-Don't believe in people who send you game requests twice in a day. Hypothesis proven.

Believe me if you pass all these rules to your new generation. I've spotted so many 12-old-years old (ers) having Facebook account with more stylish profile picture than mine and I'm so darn sure they'll thank you. And you're already welcome.


  1. Very informative posts indeed!Social etiquette matters a lot:-)

  2. hahaha I love th keep your name in the alphabet! It is so true. I would also like to add you shouldn't have random shizz in your name (i.e. Tracie Iamfunsized XYZ. Really? You're fun sized? that's nice ommpa loompa

  3. Hi Areeba,

    I'm just getting around to stopping by to wish my blogger friends a very Happy New Year! I hope 2015 will be a good year for you and yours!

  4. These game requests is simply annoying than anything in the whole world! And non-alphabet names don't even show their education profile. Totally agree with your words!

  5. I smiled throughout this post. It's true, and I am sharing with my Facebook friends.

  6. This made me laugh. When I scroll through people's instagram I pray I don't like a pic from more than 3 days ago let alone an entire 3 years!!


  7. Ew that's so so creepy of him...!!

  8. Haha these favebook tips are great lol

  9. Facebook game requests.. ugh I hate them with all my heart. Also people who tag me AND 50 other people in a photo or a status which obviously has nothing to do with me. I mean, creepy much? Geez. Besides I've had a few experiences with liking b'day status. Why, just why, do you even care to like a b'day status I posted MONTHS even YEARS ago? Where were you all this time? Living under a rock, literally? It's annoying.

  10. Hahahaha, I always find it so weird when someone comments or likes something from so long ago! Like, what were they even doing looking at that?

  11. Hahaha that is definitely pretty damn creepy, I am bad at using facebook. I can't seem to use it properly I end up unfriending family members that pee me off and all sorts, just love it ;) xxx

  12. hahhah "don't let your parents stalk anyone using your account" SO guilty of that hahah what a mess. Especially when they "accidentally" like an ancient profile photo of a random facebook friend...I definitely learned my lesson!

  13. First of all how in the world did he even find that post? He must have scrolled allot. That is if he posts allot of stuff on his wall. Either waaay.. Creepy!

  14. I can't even lie, there have been times (very few, but they exist) when I have scrolled endlessly back on Facebook walls. I think it's just nostalgia more than anything. Especially now when the majority of us are about to graduate from college, it's been so crazy to look back at life 4 years ago. It was like a whole other world. I am so guilty of going through old posts and almost ugly girl crying at my highschool life lol.

    This dude may have just had a moment, so don't feel completely creeped out lol. Unless he starts liking hella old posts, then you might have to hit that block button.

  15. This is a really amusing post, I was smiling throughout while reading it! :)

  16. I used to love Facebook and now its just ugh weird!

  17. Facebook is such an interesting place to be. I used to love FB but now I try to stay away from it as much as possible. I don't know if it's a trend or it's just the friends that I'm with but it bugs the hell out of me when I see someone spending literally 24/7 on Facebook. I have a friend that always shares random articles and pictures (of causes she supposedly supports) around the clock and it makes me wonder... do you not have anything to do besides sit on Facebook and re-share everything?!

  18. That was really creepy and extremely rude too! This post on it's own though was hilarious! :D Love the way you write! <3 xx
