A few weeks ago, a woman named Shilpi A. Singh messaged me, as she was doing a piece on acroyoga (a blend of acrobatics, yoga and Thai massage) and wanted to speak to some practitioners and members of the community. Those of you who know me, know that I have practiced this on and off for a few years. Last year I became, what they called a jambassador, with the goal of promoting and facilitating jams, and helping build a community.

Meet my FB buddies!
Followers: Day or night, who love, like, and get wowed by my post, with all their might, without losing sight… yes, they are truly the friends in need, indeed. They are the most adorable bunch of dearies on my list for they mean what they say.
Haters: Hard to please ones who aren’t moved an iota with my social media antics, care two hoots and pretend to be indifferent, after all ignorance is bliss. There are six degrees of hatred that separate the so-called friend’s big ego and me.
Stalkers: They are the online news gatherers, who love to keep an eye on my (their friend’s) social media movements. So what I post, react, comment and why, should be in their know-how, and that’s the limit of their online friendship.
Screamers: They love to go public with their love and hatred, in equal measures. Applicable for couples who not only think but also scream aloud from their FB walls, wishing their better halves – loving wives and adorable hubbies – on their anniversaries and birthdays so that all others in their friend list get the message, loud and clear.
Creepers: The ones who like to bomb my FB post with their not-so-sensible, and often stupid comments. They leave no stone unturned to make the wall divide best of best friends over religious, political or social views, comments, and opinions. Lo and behold, the wall looks no less than a mini war zone.
Socializers: Their favourite online past-time is to like, share and comment on the posts of celebrities of all hues. After all, they are the “Jabra” fans, and the stars, politicians, sportsperson, etc., should know of their existence, if not in person, surely online.
Flaunters: Got it? Then flaunt it? Afterall, joy only doubles if you share the best that you have with your friends, enemies, and frenemies on your list. Some may like it, others may hate it, a few others will ignore it too, but then that’s what makes it all the more interesting.
Fakers: These kinds don’t mean even a word of the Awws, Muahs, Hugs, Wows and all sweet nothings that they so liberally post in my comment box. What they say is what they don’t mean at all and what they don’t mean at all is what they love to say… so I better look before I leap.
Baiters: These friends wait patiently for their turn on FB. After all its more fun to bait for that one post, or comment that gives them the ultimate kick because all these bunch of losers love to see their buddy falter, fumble and fall, higher the better.
