Jesus said, “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” I wonder if we can tweak that a bit to say, “Out of the abundance of the heart, the status is updated.”
You can learn a lot about a person from their Facebook updates. Because of the succinct nature of the “update culture,” people get to the point much quicker. They reveal their soul without even realizing it.
If someone incessantly updates their status throughout the day, they desperately want someone to pay attention to them.
If someone constantly shares about all the cool things they’re doing and how much fun they’re having, they’re most likely miserable.
If someone repeatedly mentions a significant other (or God/Jesus) in their updates, they are insecure about that relationship.
I know because I’ve been in all of these camps at one point or another.
What do your status updates say about you?
