Marking yourself safe on Facebook... the height of narcissism

Is marking yourself safe on Facebook the height of narcissism? I just feel like the people who need to know you are safe are usually much easier to contact than through Facebook.

During a storm my parents will call, text, or drive by. Even if I were states away I feel like the last thing my parents or any loved ones are going to do is check my Facebook to see if I marked myself safe.
Thought?

Reason 1 of a billion why Facebook/social media sucks.

I just find it absurd that people feel the need to let everyone know they are safe.


Thanks, Mike... I was really stressed out about you being safe. My roof has caved in from a tree and my water main has busted but I just couldn’t function if I didn’t know that you were marked safe.

Typically it’s the type of people that I would prefer were not safe.

One was my cousin. She marked herself safe at 8pm Friday. The storm hadn’t even really hit our area hard yet. Made no sense. But she’s also not the brightest.

Almost as bad as posting a passive aggressive post on Tiger Droppings, instead of posting it on Facebook for Mike to see himself. Here's your attention though.

I haven’t marked myself safe to see if someone is going to show up to check on me.

The ones that don't even live in the area are the worst.

Like I was really worried for you Dave in Biloxi during Delta.

Yes, this big time. You weren't even in danger, you don't need to mark yourself safe.

And as another poster said, I saw some people marking themselves safe before the hurricane even made landfall. I couldn't roll my eyes any harder

If you haven’t seen it yet, check out “The Social Dilemma” on Netflix. Interviews with a bunch of former tech industry insiders talking about how much it is destroying our society.

Most of them said they don’t allow their kids on social media at all now

Marking yourself "safe" has the same goal as all the idiots who post endless selfies everyday. They are people with low self esteem and are fishing for compliments, so that they can feel better about themselves.

Bill Engvall had a whole routine about "Here's your sign", implying stupid people should carry a sign letting everyone know up front. This is just an extension of that.

Social media is a blight on civilization.

95% of the bullshite, turmoil and division in this country is a result of social media.

I would just keep mine as DGAF about you or your friends, family, political views, or anything else.

If I was FB.

On the narcissist scale It is right up there with assuming that anything that isn’t designed for your own specific wants is the height of narcissism

Plenty of situations I could see it’s a nice quick reference for folks you may not be super close with or if you have a fair number of folks curious and limited time/focus/charge. If there was a sudden event that hit your area it might be nice to check 30 people off the list for needing check ins

I’ve never personally used it but see how it could help someone else in or in a situation I’ve not yet been in since it started
