This is a question First World Problems

Onemunki says: We live in a world of genuine tragedy, starvation and terror. So, after hearing stories of cruise line passengers complaining at the air conditioning breaking down, what stories of sheer single-minded self-pity get your goat?

People think they are humanitarians because of social media
Just clicking like on a FB page isn't really going to change the world is it? And most of the time the people clinking these links and passing the message on don't even take the time to read or understand what they are actually "supporting". Back in the day there were emails going round saying if you forward this to you whole address book you'd get 1000 pounds from Microsoft. Now we get this shit on FB, "Click like for this sad looking cancer kid and once he gets 1000 0000 likes he'll get a bone marrow transplant". Really? Like fuck he will. I feel embarrassed for my friends who passed that on.

And the latest bullshit thing doing the rounds is Kony. Do some research and you realise that it isn't exactly as they portray it. The video is old and the war in Uganda ended 5 years ago. Kony is still operating, but nothing like the scale the video suggests. It's a bullshit money making ploy.

Well, forgive me for being
pedantic, but your post seems to be complaining about people using social media for broadcasting their own thoughts on some issue they have a bug up their arse about, and then goes into something of a rant about something you obviously have a bug up your arse about.

Would you like us to all repost your post on our Facebook pages? Will you send 20p to Bill Gates if we do?

I'm just saying that people just pass on stuff that they don't know anything about...
