Let’s face it, on social media, we are all in it to impress. Whether it is the most awesome GIF, the latest viral video, a link to a surprisingly exciting website or even a shocking status update, we always seek attention. Right?

I think this is a poor move. Social media, and Facebook as its biggest platform, should always be about expressing ourselves, with all our originality and our differences. Concerning brand pages updates, have we not seen enough hashtag dumping yet?

So please Facebook, you’ve played, you’ve tested, now it’s time to ditch it. We’ll get our own inspiration, thank you.
