It’s funny how social media websites like Facebook and Twitter work. When someone posts a genuine dilemma in their life, crying out for help or advice, they are overlooked and largely ignored. Perhaps one or two people will eventually chime in, oftentimes to offer hollow platitudes and rarely to actually offer assurance or encouragement.
However, should someone post a picture of their sleeping cat, hundreds of comments will ensue praising the cat and it’s maximum cuteness level. Emoticons will abound, and the original poster will know that their cat is loved. How sweet and genuine.
