There’s this new thing that I’m studiously ignoring, and it’s called Vine. I have absolutely no idea what it is.
WAIT! Please don’t tell me. Honestly, I don’t want to know. I don’t care. I can’t care, I have zero room left in my head for another thing, you know?
The other day someone said “Instagram is the new Facebook”, and I was like “What? What?! Why? When did this happen?”
I know I run the risk of sounding like a crochety old lady but I refuse to know what Vine is. I do Facebook, I Tumblr, I have a completely neglected Flickr. I reluctantly tweet, once a week or so. I have an Instagram account where I do not use it as though it were “the new Facebook”, I just use to to make myself look less rough after staying up til 3 am mashing my face into the keyboard and hoping something funny will come out.
I have no room in my life for Vine. But it’s getting harder and harder to not know what it is. I’ve already gleaned that it;s about videos? I think? I know this because someone tweeted “Watch my video!” and then a link to a facebook post, which was then a link to “#vine”, and then the keyboard-face mashing happened again, but out of social media exhaustion this time.
Seriously guys, enough. We don’t need another thing! Someone’s gotta draw the line and seeing as none of these “Instagram is the new Facebook” hashtag-happy people are up to the challenge, I’m going to take one for the team and do it for all of us- it ends here.
I am hereby, officially boycotting Vine.
Whatever it is.
