I came to the city when I was twenty-one because I wanted to meet my favorite actor. I thought that I’d wait outside his apartment, and he’d appear shirtless on his balcony just like in the Bollywood movies. But he never came out. I didn’t want to go home without meeting him because all my friends would laugh at me. So I slept on the streets. I had no money to survive. I began working at a bookstall just so I could eat. And every day after work I’d return to his house to see if I could find him. I finally got my chance when there was a big movie premiere. I knew he’d be there. I waited along the rope line and met all of the other actors. But when my favorite arrived, he walked past without greeting anyone. He didn’t even make eye contact. I was heartbroken. He didn’t even acknowledge his fans. At least now I have a bookshop. I can thank him for that. Facebook has announced major changes to the newsfeed coming in the next few weeks.
See you again signature poster
From the sound of things posts from pages are going to be largely removed from the newsfeed, and you’ll be seeing more posts from friends and family. The media world is not very happy about it. But you know what? I think it’s a good thing. My newsfeed was starting to feel a bit like a carnival or a casino. Anything to grab attention. Even though I’m a publisher, I personally enjoy using Facebook to share in the small happy moments of people’s lives. Maybe there will be more of that. But you’ll probably see less Humans of New York. If so know that we’re still here! I plan on posting a lot in the coming year. You might just have to seek it out by coming directly to the page. HONY is also very active on Instagram. As always, thanks for following along and making all this possible. Have a great 2018!
