Blocking and Unfriending: A Facebook Soap Opera

We have all been a witness to that one shared post by a friend that you finally happen upon in your news feed and you see that just the sharing of the post has caused an uproar that is taking over your news feed. Its comes in such large amounts that you just can’t help but be drawn in to look and read comment after comment. Not because you were planning to reply but simply because you want to be caught up on the goings and comings, find out who has blocked who, who has lost a few friends and who is just telling the entire world off. Its the same thing that occurs on twitter and any other form of social networking. But why are we so drawn to this? It brings up the question that if you saw this occurring out on the street would you watch blatantly or completely ignore? Either way, it makes for great entertainment and most times I would love to comment with a “Finish Him”
