What did you do? As far as having an outlet, or someone to talk to?

There's nothing wrong with social media sites, I think they're a great way to allow people into your lives who are maybe far away (friends, and loved ones), they're even a great way to reconnect with people from our past. But why do people post so many personal things on these sites? There's so much drama! People are "fighting" with each other, couples are airing their dirty laundry for the world to see, and don't even get me started on the pictures LMBO! 

What happened to the good old days when we would just confront someone we had an issue with, instead of posting "You're such a b*tch...you know who you are?" What happened to telling our signficant other "I hate you right now?" instead of posting it online? Is nothing private anymore?

Seriously...what did you do before all of this came along? Do you guys even remember a world without Facebook? LOL!

Nothing. I had no real life friends. I grew up and still live in a small town where I was relentlessly bullied, I had no friends.

Before then I was still in school so I would see my friends in school and make plans with them then. Then I'd go home and call my BFF and we'd talk on the phone for a few hours. No idea how we spent so much time talking and not running out of things to say, but we were "attached at the hip" so we usually spent the weekends together, too.
