Dear Diary... Oh wait this is my Facebook.

Over the past few years, social networking sites such as Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, etc. have become a big (and embarrassingly important) part of our daily lives. Let's face it as much as you try not to, we are constantly checking our Facebook every time we log onto our computer or fiddle with our phone, our social networking pages are usually the first things that we check. Along with these sites being very addictive, another appeal of these sites comes from the fact that many people use them as an outlet to air their feelings. These feelings are usually vented through status updates and were originally intended to act as a fun way to communicate with friends and to share with their "Facebook friends" the going-on's of their day. However, lately I've noticed a trend amongst people's statuses and that trend is overly complaining about personal problems and well, just being down-right not classy. I'm sorry but the world does not need to know every juicy sordid detail of your personal problems 10 times a day via your status. No, we do not need to hear about how b*tches are talking smack and you know it, or the details of how bad our day was and who made it that way status after status. I've always loved the saying "Don't air your dirty laundry in public"... well that counts for the internet as well. Also, as easy as it may be to start fights and call people out in a status, it's not only the opposite of classy but it is also just plain annoying. So for the sake of your classiness, and for the sake of your friend's news feeds not filling up with petty problems and cat fights; leave the venting for your diary, not the internet.

Stay Classy :)
