Sparkpeople is way better than Facebook!

Thursday, May 02, 2013

So you would think people you've known for years and new friends on Facebook would respond and support you. I have found that's not true! Most people boost about the great trips,gifts and party nights they are having. Or the few that complain about everything!
When my Dad died I got a great amount of support but when a niece was kidnapped almost no one commented. It seems fake like high school all over again!
Spark people is so much better. We find people with similar interests, same illness and kindred spirits from all over the world different ages, it's wonderful!
This is a big dose of love for all you sparkers, thank you for being there for each other!

    I actually quit FB a year ago because it was bumming me out. People being snarky, and the overall feel of a middle school mentality. I am MUCH happier without it.
And I agree, Spark People is awesome!! emoticon

    I understand how you feel! I was just thinking this morning that I might get entirely off Facebook if it wasn't that my children post pics of my grandchildren and that is the only way I get pictures of them! It does remind me of high school, and I hated it when I was there, why would I willingly do it all over again I wonder? With Spark People, I have found a lot of support this month (my first month) and lots of positive encouragement. I'm glad you have too!
