I am not ashamed to admit that Facebook has been a large part of my life for the past few years. I’ve reconnected with people I thought I would never hear from or see again, which has been pretty awesome. Of course for every one of those, there are at least 10 people who I vaguely remember from my past but for some reason now I am privy to the intimate details of their lives, and vice versa.
One of the many irritations of FB is the fact that they constantly change the format. It’s beyond annoying, especially since in the last update they screwed with the homepage to the point that it is now completely useless and not the least bit interesting.
A good friend of mine from high school recently summed up what is wrong with FB better than I ever could (see below). I read his email this morning while I was hungover and waiting to have bloodwork taken at the lab amidst the rif raf. Needless to say, it provided a much needed laugh.
FB has been sucking lately. People put shit like, “Sarah is having lunch with her dog.” Really? Do I give a shit? How about, “Sarah is starting to dream about the contractor because her husband is old and away all the time”. That would be cool! Or, “John is trying meth for the first time!” Or, better yet, “Jim is really, really tired of the same S&M routine with the same midget.” That’s some shit I would love to see because I really don’t give a shit about your lunch or your fucking dog, who looks like your ugly ass kid. ‘Cause, I’m sorry to say, your kid is ugly so please stop posting her pictures on FB. She sucks.
