Gripe today - Facebook. Is there anything good about it at all? Why do I need to know that someone I have a tenuous relationship with at best has just been / is just off to the gym? Why should I give a toss if someone I worked with 5 years ago apparently is more like Clive Owen than the other dozen actors their 'personality' was matched against? Why do I wanna go through the despair of not being accepted as a friend by someone who I fancy whilst getting a load of requests from people I've not heard of or work with and so sit metres away from them anyway?
Ok I'm as guilty of facebook loitering as anyone else but that's just my point, it even eats into productive people's time and lives. Don't get me wrong it's great to be able to keep in touch with distant friends, relatives, people who have young families and post pics of them etc, but surely that is what it is there for? Not some global mingle which doesn't even have the advantage of awkwardness (or time restriction) which bring such things to a swift and righteous termination.
Anyway, to get my point, check out this funy clip.
