Facebook was always a medium that was much liked by taggers who liked to write on walls. Facebook accommodates giving a free chance to write wall to wall messages on electronic walls that people have set up. Nice to write on walls that don’t belong to you and you don’t have to clean up after wards. Who really cares what you write. Use some discretion tho. You don’t want to write something threatening to someone. Could bring you some troubles over that kind of writing. No need to write something that isn’t true, about someone, or slandering them. More trouble I’m sure, then it is worth. But write something witty and great? Or writing something funny and they may repost it. But what is the purposes for this wall to wall writing anyway? Can’t you decorate your own walls? You have to invite the neighbors kids over to your walls and give them crayons to write with? And all for what? popularity? For more followers, in turn which leads to more taggers for your wall?
“It’s just a figure of speech.” They say. Making a reference to writing on walls. “Facebook is more like a way to staying close with people who are far away.” Okay! What happened to the phone? The new thing, like a cell phone has taken over. Take it anywhere, make calls to anyone. Use it to get on the net, check your Facebook account. What? Staying close with people who you could talk too, and hear another voice by calling them up? But Facebook users would rather write on walls. Much like the real taggers who write on walls of buildings, then run like hell to get away. Only to return to the scene of the crime to brag to friends. At times when their friends see their tags it is a status thing because, they know who does what signs. It’s their way of bragging or saying “I got there first!” So it is a popularity thing as I said before, or implied.
When Facebook wall to wall writing goes a muck. Everyone knows the writer as well how to get to their walls, to be able to return the favor. So wall to wall isn’t such a bad thing. Tagging walls for real is much worse. The taggers are a hit and run mad artist at best. You paint over the tag and they return just to do it over again. And again! By the time you get to do this 2 or 3 times you are starting to warm to the ideas of becoming a tagger from hell yourself, if you only knew where they lived.
Some would like to have their tags called “a form of art.” But the people or businesses that have their buildings tagged or their trucks tagged, may say other wise. I always thought that art was made, and then the artist would try to sell it, gaining some self-support for being an artist. But with art by tagging? A few cans of spray paint and off you go to the next bare wall you can find. With tagging art, if one can call it that. It seem to devalue part of towns where it is overly present. Unlike true art forms, which adds value to a part of society, in the forms of art museums and such. Giving people a chance to go and see as a part of their entertainment.
I say the more people engaged on Facebook in the wall to wall tagging, or writing to each other the less of a chance they will use spray paint tagging blank or fresh painted walls of my town. But with the taggers of Facebook that can’t seem to understand that you can take some time with Facebook tagging. No fear! No need to hurry, no fear in getting caught, or having to run like hell away from the scene of the crime. Please make double shure you are typing the right address, so you will be writing on the right wall, no matter what your writing. The wrong address may lead to someone else getting the whole Facebook community responding to it. What ever it is or if it is true or not! Thinking that you are getting back at some one with the same name but wrong address. Leaves your friends on your list, open to joining in with their reposting to your misguided posts. Which opens the door for the rest of the world of Facebook in responding to someone who has only your orignal wrong address or name in common. So keep on hating if you must! But hate the ones that you hate with some accuracy. Don’t hate the ones you have never met, or hated before, or loved before. Please consider that the last name “Smith” Is really popular. So the one person that you may hate by the name of “Doug Smith, Kate Smith, Mike Smith, Garry Smith, Sam Smith or any other Jane Doe / John Doe, Smith that you can think of may in fact be, the wrong Smith you’re getting back at. Think of all of the Smiths in the world who may then decide to get back at you, using electric tagging of your wall on Facebook! Might drive you too tagging real walls with spray paint again? In which case if your caught, I hope your punishment will be cleaning up all the walls of my town, from all that tagging! Using only a toothbrush and elbow grease!
All the best!
