Public profile craziness.

cover mouth

I had decided to create a public profile for Facebook, one that’s separate from my private life. While I’m in now way shape or form a celebrity, I got a taste of what they must experience on a daily basis. Within the span of 48 hours, I have been asked out numerous times, asked for money, sent pictures of a disgusting nature, people wanting to Skype,¬†people trying to get a free book or asking me to publish their novels.
I don’t mind chatting with new people, BUT and that’s a big but, I don’t like when people message me wanting the aforementioned things. It’s crass and I wonder if these folks actually think these things work.
I only saw a sliver of the craziness of being in “public”, but I have to say I have a new appreciation for the celebrities who get all of that times 1000 on a daily basis.
Musicians, artists, authors or just about anyone in a creative genre love to hear that you appreciate our work, can’t wait for the next album/project/book to come out. But sending vulgar images will NOT get you a polite reply and will likely get you blocked.
Anyway, that’s just an observation of mine. I wonder how many of you have similar stories.
