The Facebook irritation  

Posted in

Ok, so I used to have MySpace, cause my son does it, and I want to know what he's up to. I got pulled right in and loved all the stuff we could do on there. Video, Audio, Pics, you name it. Then for us 40 something people it sorta got a little too fast paced and irritating. So what could we do?

Well enter Facebook. The new and improved MySpace. You only deal with people you want to deal with. It's much easier to keep in touch on Facebook. Reconnecting with friends from high school, or college, or the military. Of course don't forget all the Cool apps that are available.

Oh yeah all the cool apps, and of course the not so cool apps. Farmtown, Farmville, Barn Buddies, Vampires, Mafia Wars, the list goes on and on and on. It started out really relaxing and extremely entertaining, but then..................It just became another irritating MySpace. I still use facebook, but those God awful apps have become an addiction that is just sooooo hard to let go of.

I find myself taking a few minutes more each day to keep up, and I'm dumb enough to keep grabbing up more apps, as they continue to pour them on. So what's the answer? Well I guess I could stop using Facebook, or I could limit my time on the puter, but I know that's not gonna happen. So I came up with a better idea. I decided to make a blog so that I can waste even more time complaining about the time I'm wasting on Facebook.....

I love the technological advances we have made in our lifetime, but sometimes I wish for the good ol' fashioned days of 3 channels on tv, 4 radio stations that played everything, and the only video game around was this new deal called pong.

Congrats Bendigo!

I hate FB. I liked Myspace better because you could blog, but no one hung around MS anymore once the new and shiny FB came along so I was forced to assimilate. On FB I found a lot more of my high school friends, but that's about the only upside I've found. To blog I had to come here... not that I'm complaining! It all worked out for the best.

You are sooo right Kristy..FB is just easier to find HS friends otherwise it's sorta pointless except for all those dang apps :)
