What percentage of the posts on FMyLife do you think actually occurred?
When this site was first becoming popular, the posts seemed pretty realistic. Now, they’re much more entertaining, but possibly fabricated. Of course, they could just be better because the site is more popular now, so more people know about it, and there are more people submitting, and thus, a better selection from which to choose.
All of the posts certainly could have happened, and I’ve had enough ridiculous things happen to me that I try not to doubt the credibility of events simply because of their ridiculous-sounding nature. However, it’s quite possible that, when this website became popular, in desiring to be published, people decided to begin fabricating horrible stories.
What do you think?
Also, they kind of remind me of the “embarrassing moments” page that was in the back of every teen magazine in the late 90s. Anyone remember those? (Or do they still have them?) The concept was that these were submitted by readers, but they were probably simply written by the magazine staff. Does anyone know the status of those things either?
