What to Post on Facebook

These days, hundreds of millions of people use Facebook to socialize with their friends. In fact, almost 300,000 status updates are posted to Facebook every minute. Facebook is a great place to check in to see what important things people are doing and thoughts people are thinking.

When you go on Facebook, a little box dangles there, asking you, "What's on your mind?" Your answer to that question will appear in the newsfeed of every active Facebook friend. What is on your mind? Now is your chance to say something interesting.

Of course, finding words for your answer to this questions is harder than it looks. If your brain were a fishbowl, you could just stick your hand in there and pull out a big thought, right? But although Facebook makes it seems so, brains are not fishbowls, and if you are feeling stuck, read on for inspiration on life: lessons, quotes, wisdom, phrases, and more.
