Everyone on Facebook is having such a great time. Look at those faces, they’re laughing when they’re alone, ebullient with all their friends, drinking, partying, making great things happen wherever they go. I’m a little bit jealous.

I guess it makes sense, put your best foot forward. You wouldn’t have a picture of yourself holding up a pink slip on your Christmas card. But Facebook happens more than once a year. Could there be it be a more layered storybook of our lives? Or is that just no fun at all. I’m sorry, that’s not very Facebook of me.

It also appears that people are spending a lot of time on Facebook, (“welcome to Crackbook!” said my friend who invited me to be special FB friends) where do they find the time to have all that fun? Are there Facebook breaks where everyone puts down their Facebook at a predetermined time, goes to a good times destination to create the shiny new content for the next day?

As you can see, I’m a little conflicted over the whole experience.
That’s the thing with Facebook, you either love it. Or you love it more.


  1. It’s not an act for Facebook, baby --- I really am that superficial! Hugs.

  2. I think Facebook is a replacement for the sense of community and family unit that’s been fractionalize by an increasingly mobile and geographically disparate society. It brings people together. I know I have fallen in love with it because I get to be in daily contact with people I've moved away from, like you, my high school and college friends, work buddies from long ago. I am doing the same stuff I did before facebook . . . I'm just exposing it to more people.

  3. It's a way to waste time at work. Gotta love that.
