The World Is Obsessed With Facebook
Facebook, you did it again. You dominated my life this year…and the year before and the year before and the year before and the year before and the year before. Thanks for being the most intellectually (un)stimulating web 2.0 site. You consume my life in ways that no other noun can. I’m not denying the fact that your notification system keeps me happy and that your relationship status has become more official than an engagement ring. You’ve allowed kids to be “married” online and others to be “in an open relationship”. You made me spend minutes, hours, and days coming up with brilliant and not so brilliant status updates. You’ve made me well aware of all the mutual friends I have with random individuals and taught me that the seven degrees of separation is in fact one click away. You allowed strangers to subscribe to my page and made me insecure about my privacy. You kept me sane through finals by telling me that it’s okay to be lazy and that it’s okay to be honest about how fucked I am for the test since there were plenty of others in my shoes that did the same. You also managed to live-fucking-stream my online activity on the upper right corner and share it to every “I-knew-you-when-I-added-you-but-we-haven’t-talked-since” person on my friends list. Then you came up with timeline and that stuff is just annoying. But then again, thanks for kindly reminding me of all the birthdays because I sure cannot remember them. I love you and hate you so much at the same time.

Happy holidays to everyone reading this. Big ups to Paul Marcarelli for still being alive despite the popular belief that he’s dead. Can you hear me now?
