If I sit on my couch watching The Biggest Loser while eating four scoops of Rocky Road and then update my status about how I wish I could lose the weight, I haven't actually DONE anything. Posting about politics on Facebook is NOT the same things as casting a ballot.
I must confess, in my early days on Twitter, I trawled for followers by asking others to help be reach some round-numbered goal. But I've realized how desperate I may have sounded for approval, for achievement.
I met a girl that I really like but when I got to her Facebook profile I found a lot of pictures of her with a lot of different guys. How do I approach the subject of asking her who all these guys are?
