SOCIAL MEDIA IS WHAT IT IS
There’s this growing trend on social media, particularly Facebook, where accounts depicting young ladies with small waistline, flat tummy, exceptionally broad hips and massively endowed anterior and posterior, will invitingly send you a request for normal friendship, but the moment you accept them, they will start bothering you with:
1. Next week is my birthday
2. My rent is due and my landlord is threatening to throw me out
3. My mother has been taken ill and is on admission
4. My i-phone 7 just fell and the screen is damaged
5. My hostel payment is due
6. I’ve got some top-up to settle for my semester fees
7. I’m feeling for pizza; can you please get me one by despatch?
8. I’ll be attending a friend’s wedding and I will need a new pencil hill
9. I haven’t eaten the whole day ooooo
10. I’m broke today; can you please send me something through mobile money?
But when you’re bold to be frank that you’re not in for that kind of uninvited parasitic socialisation, they rain insults on you by branding you as STINGY and WICKED.
Now, social media is exactly what it is: SOCIALIZING AMONGST PEOPLE, AND NOT A COCOA FARM TO BE HARVESTED OR ATM TO BE DISPENSING CASH ON COMMAND.
