Baf­fling use of so­cial me­dia

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

WHAT is it with peo­ple who use Face­book to send mes­sages to loved ones who don’t use Face­book?

I’m baf­fled by the num­ber of times I spot some­one wish­ing a fam­ily mem­ber happy birth­day or the likes when the re­cip­i­ent won’t even see it.

It also an­noys me when folk post these sorts of mes­sages to peo­ple who live in the same house as them, or who they’ve al­ready wished happy birth­day etc in per­son/via phone.

Why the need to then post it on so­cial me­dia too? Is it sim­ply at­ten­tion-seek­ing?
