Sit on My Facebook! – Internet “Love” Song by The Scribes [Video]

Once upon a time there was the love that we all knew, but then came a different kind of love, one which takes intimacy to a whole new level! This type of love is called the “internet love“.

In short, and without trying to glorify the topic, this generation of youth redefines love in terms of social media and internet terms, channels, tools and websites! Love is transformed from actions in real life to any other virtual actions such as poking, messaging, tagging, befriending of Facebook, tweeting and so on.

By chance, I came across this sarcastic video and it fully explains what I am talking about. I present to you: Sit on My Facebook!

What do you think: Do you feel sad about how love is being perceived these days? Do you agree that it is unnerving how social media and the internet use our feelings and emotions to grow and expand?

Looking forward to your comments below…

He certainly stuck it up to the man, and made people nostalgic for the wild west days of Billy the Kid and Jesse James but at least he didn’t suffer the same end as they did.
