We all have friends that use Facebook like they have Tourette's; spitting out random thoughts that have about as much interest as a bowel movement. Why do they do it I often wonder as I roll my eyes and scroll down the page? Most friends won’t tell you (but I will) that they could care less if you’re at Dunkin Donuts; thanks to Foursquare, every fart is followed by a declaration on facebook, and free promotion for the business your yakking about; in the end you get zero, and Foursquare gets a cut from the business you’re promoting, for free.
I love the friend that will give you hourly status about how much in love they are; then a week later their posts are filled with sad songs and poems about how love sucks. Why they do this to us and themselves I don’t know. A friend of mine suggested that some people are just stupid; I agree but we are all being programmed to share everything we do; basically our lives are now for sale and most of us are falling into high octave narcissism.
I predict Facebook will go where Myspace went, when something better comes along. There was a time when AOL was king and starting charging a lot of money for their email service; anybody use AOL for email anymore? Yeah I didn’t think so.
Sharing with your friends can be fun on the internet, I love to see funny things, or cool vacation pics, but when your most minuet daily activities are over shared on the internet you know it’s time to get your ass offline and go read a book or take a walk or something.
