Fascination with Facebook
I’m sorry, I just have to say this… I just can’t see all the hype about Facebook. I’ve been a member for quite some time now and it’s practically the same as other social networking sites. Probably better because of the many apps and all that, plus it has tons of things about True Blood, but other than that…
Or maybe, it’s just me. I was chatting with a friend a week or so ago about Facebook. She’s addicted to it. She spends two to three hours after her shift just updating her account and writing on friends’ walls. While we were chatting, she’s busy with uploading her photos. I just could not see how you can spend hours in it. It’s nothing new.
I know some enterprising individuals are using it for their businesses. Spending hours networking, meeting potential customers, business partners and such I can understand. I can even understand that some are on the lookout for celebrities and the latest about them. But to simply be there to update it and “connect” with friends (when you can connect with them via IM or in person, which is much better)… now, that I can’t understand. I don’t mean to offend those who are addicted to Facebook. This is my personal views and opinions about it. As I’ve said, maybe, it’s just me.
So, pray tell, why are you addicted to Facebook? Do you also spend hours in it? Or like me, you can’t also understand the fascination?
