Joining the masses
I have now completely gone over to the dark side and gotten Facebook. And I who didn’t even want to get a blog! Although now I almost can admit that I kinda like blogging, a little. Getting Facebook is really desperate though: next thing I know I’ll probably be playing Runescape! :S
The sad thing is, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be – beside stupid little add-ons like sending virtual teddy bears to each other (which reminds me of bebo). I mean, I, the social runtling, have friends! Or at least acquaintances. There were at least 30 people I knew, after looking last night (this morning, if you have to be all technical about it).
So that was good. The 19 notifications in my inbox when I woke up this morning wasn’t. ”Harry Potter* has added you as a friend on facebook.” ”Arnold Schwarzennager* has written on your wall.” Whoopdee doo. If you go and check every time you get one, you’re not going to have any life, I realized early on. Although, unlike other sites, you can claim to have a life (see my 9,561 friends?). So in a rare heroic spurt of self-control I decided that facebook can be checked max every other day.
I have a life! Neener neener all you facebook addicts! (Some may argue that I actually don’t have a life. However, let’s just not go there.)
