Facebook was introduced to me by an older friend when he was a freshman in college and I was a senior in high school. He said once I got a .edu e-mail from the college I’d attend, I could join. It was something to look forward to, and I couldn’t join until 2006 when I was accepted to Michigan. It was actually cool.
This was a nice Facebook world: just college kids. You know when I knew it was time to leave Lame? When my mom commented on my messages!
As much as I like her commenting on this website, and love her, facebook is like bar room banter with your bros. It was embarrassing.
Facebook never should have changed the original college rule.
I wanted it like the AOL Instant Messenger Days.
Facebook lured me into a comfortable state. Anyone who grew up using AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) knows the quick pace you chat. Good thing about AIM, the conversation was private. On facebook, not only is it public and visible to all the kids you talked to once or twice a day in high school and are mostly awkward (and many Republican), but it is also permanent to view what anyone writes forever.
Hurting it worse, when you have a job interview, they take this shit seriously.
Facebook has turned it into a world for way too many snarfs – high school girls, desperate housewives, nerds, etc. It’s been ruined by teenagers and adults.
