Social media is all about expressing your thoughts—but what if you don’t have any? Facebook may want to help you out with your social media writer’s block.

Technology is filled with all kinds of rumors and speculation — real and fabricated. BitStream collects all those whispers into one place to deliver your morning buzz.


According to the Social Times and The Next Web, some Facebook users are beginning to see hashtag and even status recommendations for what you could post on Facebook. This is what we call “enabling the bandwagon.” Here are a few screenshots, posted by the Social Web, that shows some of these mind-numbing changes in action.


It also seems that Facebook may be toying with the idea of actually putting suggestions in your status update, reminding you if one of your favorite teams is playing today for example.
