Could it be that I am one of the last Internet-active people who is still without a Facebook account?? Is it possible? Judging by the weekly cajoles of my pro-Facebook friends and acquaintances, I might be! “Why aren’t you on Facebook?”, they ask. “You’re STILL not on Facebook?”. Then come the eyerolls and disgusted sighs. Oh yeah? Well, kiss my nonconformist ass! 😆
Ah, I’m just kidding. No ass-kissing necessary. The truth is I’ve been debating Facebook for some time now. I’ve heard mixed reviews about the popular social networking site. Some have told me it’s “really fun”, others have said it’s “okay in moderation”, while others have called it a “nuisance”.
I have no deep-seated aversion to Facebook, although I have derived a weird, twisted pleasure from being a non-Facebooker. I’m prone to defiance. Not principled defiance, mind you. Just baseless, pointless, immature defiance as a reaction to the “masses”. Everyone’s doing it? Well then I WON’T!! Take that, you followers! No . . I’m NOT on Facebook! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!! :sticks pins in Facebook voodoo doll:
But after a talk with my brother this weekend, my rebel yell is losing traction. Chris, I should mention, is not a big social networking guy at all, yet even he has fallen in love with Facebook. That’s huge. So I’m seriously thinking of taking the plunge and crossing over to the dark side. What do you all think? Any of you on Facebook? Feedback and opinions welcome!
