Head Noise or Facebook Content Obsession

Head Noise, a disorder that is also known as Facebook Content Obsession, is when something you see on Facebook keeps flowing through your mind, even when you're not on Facebook. It can be what someone else posted, or your own response to a Facebook post.

You may become a victim of Head Noise by seeing too many political memes, arguing with a troll, or by letting yourself feel bad about a negative comment.

Head Noise crowds out the thoughts you should be thinking and poisons your inner self. Think back to your LBF (life before Facebook). You probably had far less Head Noise polluting your consciousness.

Head Noise can haunt you, to the point that you find yourself constantly engaged in mentally debating or attacking someone you encountered on Facebook.

Head Noise can be avoided by blocking individuals who are annoying or incurably stupid.

You can also reduce head noise by spending less time on Facebook, or engaging in "drve-by posting" -- posting something on Facebook, but ignoring Notifications of replies and avoiding Newsfeed by not clicking on Home.

Your life will be happier and less stressful by taking steps to reduce Head Noise.

How to Save a Post on Facebook

See a really great post on Facebook? Full of good information?

Shared it to your wall perhaps, but afraid it will get lost as you add more posts, and it gets pushed down into oblivion?

Use the "Save Post: add this to your saved items" tool to keep track of it.

Save Post tool is found in the 3 dots at upper right corner of a post. Click or tap on it to activate the drop down menu, it's at the top.

When you save things on Facebook, they'll appear in the Saved section.

To view the things you've saved:

Go to or click Saved in the left side menu of the homepage. Click a saved category at the top or click a saved item to view it.

Note: Saved items are private, so only you can see them.

Reading a Book in a Bar

One time several years ago, I brought a book into a bar on Main Street called Sonny's. It was not tolerated.

As I was reading it, some guy came up to me and actually growled, "I don't drink beer in the library, so why are you reading a book in a bar?"

I replied, "I don't tell you what to do, so why are you trying to tell me what to do?"
