Don't Tell Me What To Do

What the hay is going on lately with all the suggestions of who I should like, what I should read, what music I should listen to, etc.?

Facebook suggests friends.

Local news tells me 10 things I need to know.

Spotify tells me music I should listen to.

Twitter tells me who I should follow.

LinkedIn tells me who I should connect with.
Amazon tells me what books I should read.

Dear Suggestors,
If I wanted those people as friends I would have already friended them. Local news station you don’t even cover our local area anymore and I don't care what Justin Bieber is doing. I admit to trying out some of the suggested music of Spotify so you can keep suggesting. Twitter you suggest people/businesses who haven’t tweeted in months so why would I want to follow them. LinkedIn you want me to connect with someone who hasn’t changed their profile since they set it up 3 years ago. Amazon thinks I like porn with military costumes because of the 50 Shades trilogy and the Bin Laden book I bought.
Where do you come up with these suggestions? Not from my personal preference I assure you. (Amazon, maybe you can keep suggesting)

I don’t particularly like anyone telling me what to do, well there is one exception to that but I will leave that for another post.
