Well, aren’t you guys just the coolest.
Vaguebookers. They’re everywhere.
We’ve all encountered them at one point or another.
There you are, happily browsing through your news feed. Your friends have updated their status with what they’ve done that day, everything is fine. And then you see it, that one post. Someone has updated with something vague and indirect, but clearly intended to be read by one particular person.
There are only two reasons why people vaguebook:
1) They can’t think of anything else to say;
2) They’re confused/annoyed with someone that they’re interested in, and want to subtly drop a hint to them.
The poster no doubt wants people to comment with things like “what’s wrong? Txt me” or “are you okay?”
You’re doing it wrong. Normally, no one will comment.
However, if people do actually respond with the desired comments, the poster, staying true to their vaguebooking form, will reply with something like “nothing, I’m fine.”
COMPLETELY DEFEATING THE POINT OF THE STATUS.
This is unacceptable internet behaviour. We can all clearly see what you’re trying to do by vaguebooking, you’re being neither vague or mysterious.
Just stop it. Stop it now.
