Perky by Force?

eeyoreIs it just me, or are the majority of Tweets and Facebook postings quite perky?  Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it is authentic?  Is everyone really and truly that happy all the time? (If so, rush hour commuters must not engage in social media networks.)

    For me, I usually wake up happy not grumpy so it is my personality to be cheerful, happy and gregarious. When you meet me in person, I am the same person you know like and trust on Twitter.
    I agree it is wierd for someone to be a different person on twitter and cheerful if they are really grumpy even in meetings and social events.
    I just started to follow you tonight and check out everyone I follow. Good thing too since this is a really cool blog.
