On Facebook...

Okay, why do I not get it. There are approximately 36 million people on facebook. I have, in comparison with most, a dismal 58 facebook friends. I think it has the worst software ever created. There has got to be a better way. It's fine for the techy teenagers which all teens seem to be nowadays. But for the bleary eyed mommy's...not so much.
It is good for the following reasons:

  • Connections
  • IMing, which a friend did tonight while I was not even logged onto facebook but answering a message I received from someone who was not even my friend yet. Get it.
  • Spying
  • Confidence boost...just when you think you have already connected with everyone from high school...BAM, someone else wants to be your friend.

It is bad for the following reasons:
  • Connections, now I have to re-live high school.
  • I do not know how to IM
  • people may consider me to be a bigger snob than once thought, because I do not get facebook and therefore do not reply to invites of sent drinks or ornaments or ismile's or do any of the quizzes, so if you are reading this and think that I am snooty bitch for not contributing to your cause, it is really because I do not have the patience to figure it out
So in conclusion...I want to be your facebook friend. Request me to be your friend, but please do not expect much more that a simple acceptance.
