The Vexes of FACEBOOK

Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life.  It says so right on the home page.  Of course, that is total bullshit.

I think it should say something like Facebook helps you connect with all the people you hated in high school so they can see if you're fat.

Or maybe something like Facebook helps you bring together those who don't share your same political views and allows them to call each other names via your wall.

Better yet, Facebook updates you on the status of people you no longer remember.

Facebook lets anyone post a picture of you and tag you in it thereby allowing your employer or future employer to see you at your best.

Facebook let's people join the Mafia so they can annoy you with requests for guns, handcuffs and cellphones.

Facebook teaches your friends to farm by begging you for gifts or by constant chorus of the Mr. Roger's classic, "Won't you be my neighbor."

Facebook is a virus

so why do I keep going back for more.....

I often wonder the same thing. Why do I keep on logging on when it's very evident that the majority of the people on my list don't give a crap.

This was hilarious.

I am ridiculously addicted to Facebook. Like, badly. And it's so damn embarrassing.

I do have to say, though, that I do not play Mafia Wars or Farmville.

Bejeweled, on the other hand....

I don't know - facebook has never been of interest to me. I suspect that it might have some interest, but just not enough to convince me to waste the time.

OMG! I love facebook, I farm, I have lots of high school "friends" from 26 years ago..... LOL I'm so infected!

Honestly, it's how we keep in touch with our kids and family. Our son in Iraq (Army), and 2 daughters in different cities in SC, plus all the extended family extended all across America. We laugh and joke and post pics all the time. Is there a cure?

Ha ha ha. You have some valid points. I have a theory that everyone that friends me from HS just wants to see if I look old and had.......and then they go back to their regularly scheduled programs. :)
