Boo. No, I’m not a doing a little post-Halloween scaring, I’m talking about the cutest dog in the world. You’ve probably heard of him by now, he has over 2 1/2 MILLION friends on Facebook and, as of right now, over 100 thousand people are talking about him. Why? BECAUSE HE’S FREAKIN’ ADORABLE!!!
Does it amaze you that an animal can have such a powerful presence on Facebook? I thought about this and have come to a conclusion on how it’s possible. Besides the obvious over-flowing lovability factor, that endearing doggy smile, and the fact that everyone loves dogs (admit it, it’s true), it’s his pure genuineness. Yes, dogs are ONLY genuine, it’s true. They can’t lie, cheat or steal… well, they can steal, but they don’t see it that way! They are just themselves, always. And so it should be with all of us, especially with an online presence.
Over the boundless internet, it’s hard to come off as genuine because we can’t use the all the subtle innuendos of our language with typing. Seriously, there should be a font for sarcasm. It can be called Sarcastica. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if someone’s being funny or mean… but with a dog, we know. He’s just being a dog. Wouldn’t it be nice if it were all that simple?
Well, it can be. Make sure you start with a genuine mindset. Do what you do for the love of it, no matter what it is and people will be able to tell. Follow the golden rule and do unto other and you would have them do to you. Truly care about people, their stories and lives. Use great discretion – if you think something would come off the “wrong way” or not how you meant it, fix it.
Sure, there will be times where something posted on Facebook isn’t the greatest and may end up being taken the wrong way. At least you tried. Boo will forgive you. And hopefully fellow man will, too.
So when you’re feeling a little down-and-out or suffering from the winter blues, just take a glance at Boo, or buy his stuffed animal likeness and give him a squeeze (no, I’m not making any commissions off of this, but I should…). I guarantee you’ll feel better.
