I joined facebook on July 21, 2010 when I have no pictures awesome and attractive, I had no job, I was an anchor, not a blogger and not an amazing personality. I was a student of 6 month designing diploma. I belonged to South Waziristan, the most conservative society as I do. Now what would be my story; ‘my facebook movie’?
My first picture most liked came in 2012, taken in my studio while I was onair in my radio show. Facebook movie shows a picture of my friend, a few pictures of my radio and university. That’s all of my life since I have joined facebook in 2010.
But where are the pictures of my work in radio? Where are the stories I have shared during peaceful protests against drone strike? Why the movie did not include the story (status) about getting a full scholarship for master degree which was liked and commented in hundreds? Huh!! There are many good things that can be included in the script of the movie before it was released. So bad!! I am really pissed up.
But not at all! I liked ‘my movie’. At least it made me a famous personality. How??? Because I told my friends and fans! “Hurrah! I had a movie, facebook made about me.”
It is a lot of fun. One of my friend was crying and called on me to help him. I was with him just after 10 minutes.
“What happened?” I asked.
“Oh my God! I just watched the ‘facebook movie’ of my younger sister. I saw a picture in which I was dating a girl in 2009.”
“But why are you crying now?” I asked.
He looked at me and said “Because I had never seen it before. How did my sister get it?” …
His sister was shocked and said “I was tagged in the picture which was uploaded by my brother’s girlfriend. His girlfriend had two facebook accounts. He was blocked in the one where the picture was uploaded.” Hahaha really shocking…
But more shocking was that his sister said “When I had uploaded the picture, I also blocked brother and unblocked him after 6 months. But he is still “unfriend” with me on facebook.” – There was more fun but don’t share here.
My friend’s sister was also crying and speaking nothing. She deleted permanently her facebook account. Her brother also deleted his own but he created a new one. I was silent there but laughing at them after I came back to home. I left them angry.
To thank its more than one million users (a lot of fake users) Facebook gave us the movie as a gift to look at our own time on the social-networking site. The site’s trend #FacebookIs10 went viral and a lot of its users liked it.
It was a project launched by the social networking site to celebrate its tenth anniversary on Tuesday (February 4, 2014).
Despite huge appreciation many users mocked it badly. Tripp and Tyler made a movie (above in video) named “an honest facebook movie” and shown some true facts of the site.
“My first ‘poke’ was from my Dad, don’t think he knows what that means”, from the movie of Tripp and Tyler. – They shown the realities featuring unknown notifications from unknown groups, being close-friends to unknown people, never clicking on the sidebar ads and many things other unwanted.
One of my facebook friend said in her status;
Friend: “Here’s my Facebook movie”
Me: “Here’s my gun.”
“Congratulations! Your Facebook movie has been nominated for an Oscar,” Another status of her.
If you still wish to have your own movie on facebook. Go here and make a fun of yourself and your friends!! Yeah it’s now good than first. Maybe because of criticism and making a fun of it by many writers. So NOW facebook just made some changes. Now you can edit the movie and exclude all those pictures and posts you don’t want to include. I have edited my own. Try yours, You’ll like it.
