I spent just over a month on Facebook and I learned a lot.
- Mafia Wars is a neverending pit of time wasting with no end in sight.
- People who spent time at Skogfjorden sure do have a lot of their emotional lives tied up with Skogfjorden. I'm not sure if that's good or bad.
- Some people from my youth grew up and look the same.
- Some look different.
- Creating a fake Facebook profile is very easy and its a good way to collect a lot of random friends you could give a crap about.
- I tended to write status updates "Kurt is drinking coffee." just so that I knew that other people would see me on it. That's pretty dumb.
- My SuperPoke pet pig Bacon got a girlfriend named Mrs. Nesbitt. Because Mrs. Nesbitt is the pet of my wife Sandy, Bacon received lots of presents. These were nice to get.
- Most things that people write on Facebook are annoying to read and I wind up not caring.
- My political side tends to come out and I can't just let things go without commenting.
- I think Facebook's primary use for sane individuals should be as a place to find people who used to be your friend so you can check up on them and maybe get their address for actual communication.
- Facebook fiends are not actual friends. Sometimes they are people who simply clicked an OK button.
I am a hater. I know that. It's part of who I am.
I am sure that Facebook serves a purpose, but for right now, I am done with it. Primarily it's a waste of time, and as far as friends go, I have three friends:
These are people that:
- I always feel like myself around.
- I don't miss when they are gone because I know I will see them again.
- I actually care about.
- Wouldn't care how I ordered the above list!
Some of my Facebook friends are friends of Sandy. And I love Sandy's friends. In fact I have arrangements with several of them in case anything ever goes awry and brake lines are cut, but until such time, I will be sitting here on my own little piece of the Information Supertube. Writing to people who. . .while they may not all be my friends, had to go there extra effort to see what I was up to.
