How many friends do you have on Facebook? Or let me rephrase, how many real friends do you have on Facebook? According to a recent research, Human brain cannot hold more than 150 friends. So even if you have a thousand, you can’t memorize each one of them. So how is adding friends becoming a Spam?
What is Spam?
Spam is literally everything you see in Facebook nowadays. Tons of irrelevant messages, ads, scams, friend requests, scam apps etc. The list will never end. I myself have written a few accounts on Facebook spams, but then lost track of it(had no other option!). It seems that, in the current scenario, people love spreading spams for some reason.
How is Friend a Spam?
Take a look at this pic, and comment below what comes to your mind first.
500 new friends, and as I type this down it’s still going up! Seriously, I took this screenshot at 7.12pm, and now at 7.22pm, its 634 new friends! Now you tell me how real is that?
I can find only one reason, ‘she’ has a female name, and a female profile pic. If you go across various Facebook accounts, you can see tons of such accounts. People just want to be friends with Girls(for some reason I don’t know), which I seriously doubt if they are. Now how many girls would take the pain to login to Facebook, and add up 634 friends in an hour? I don’t think there would be many such fanatics out there. I even doubt if it’s a bot. It should be, considering the pace at which the number is growing.
Facebook is happening! Yes, a virtual world, in which fake people become kings! That’s what is happening. People mould up their own identity in this Virtual world, and harness the power of human emotions. I don’t know where this would lead, but by the look of it, it does not seem good.
