There’s something about Facebook I just don’t like. I’m going to be hugely hypocritical with this post because like so many other sheep I have a Facebook page, and I regularly login to see what utterly boring things everyone else is/has/will/was be doing/done/did and then change my status to reflect whatever tedious task has been the highlight of my day/hour/minute/moment!
Facebook has become deeply rooted in people’s lives, and whilst social networking sites have many good points it’s the banal reasons behind why people use them that really grinds my gears. Not all Facebookers are riddled with OCD that forces them to log in 28.6 times a day to update their status and say LOL to the must unfunny of photos – so a small apology goes out to those who aren’t complete morons. That said let’s take a look at the varying levels idiocy within the Facebook community. I’m generalizing here so feel free not to post random comments about how much you love your Facebook page and how it lets you and your “mates” keep in touch. Purlease, before social networking sites people went out and “talked” to each other “face to face” and conversations had weight and meaning to them. So save your protests for someone who gives a crap, k?
