Confessions (n) : A supporting word which follows any institution/city/profession, made into a Facebook page and has random crap in it. It is usually followed by the same name with Proposals, and in some extreme cases, Matrimonials!
Off late, there has been a trend which has quite clearly shown how much percentage cowards and attention-seekers make up the Internet. This has been my viewpoint ever since there has been a plethora of confessions pages on Facebook.
The word confession means you do it to get it off your mind. It means you did something really bad, something that haunts your guilty conscience. You tell it to someone who might
(1) console you telling that it probably is not your fault.
(2) critically judge you, but you probably wanted it; that's why you confessed in the first place.
(3) end their relationship with you because they were directly affected; that probably again, was what you wanted, because you thought getting it out was better than living with guilt.
However, in this new trend, none of these are met. People who post there are either too jobless to do anything else ( Final years of colleges for those college pages ) or attention seekers who post under different names. Sometimes, these people can't even get their facts right in the story that they are cooking up.
Hell, if you are confessing, and you dont like something, you should shout out loud ! You won't name the person to whom the confession is intended, and obviously you wish to remain anonymous, then for what hair, are you posting? I can only think - " attention seeker ".
Sometimes, its so pathetic that the admins of these pages themselves post stuff, to get the barrel rolling. Half of the time, the confessions are not really confessions but supposedly-comic incidents that happened. At most 1 in every 50 is interesting. Others are so void, that even a seal wouldn't clap. And, I haven't even started talking about the Proposals page. What a drag.
However, those 1 in 50, which are really good, provide great timepass for a person who comes to take some time off at Facebook and relax.
To conclude, I think this says best.
