I reckon I look a bit too-much like a car salesman in this shot… 🙂 See the look of blind hope in those eyes? “Make my Day?” they seem to be crying out!
When I first started using Facebook – it was awesome catching up with people and seeing what they were up to! I loved it – I was a fairly early adopter and it has grown to be something that I value in terms of keeping “involved” in the lives of the people I have met over the years… somewhat removed of course… but LATELY… there have been several things that are peeing me off!!! There is now an annoying abundance of stupid things that are just so out of the real world that it’s not funny… can you remember the last time you sat down with friends over a coffee – enjoying pleasant and stimulating conversation and then suddenly someone shouts at the top of their lungs “My CELEBRITY TWIN IS VANESSA HUDGENS” (not picking on anyone, just went to facebook and that was the first one in my list)… Why on earth do we need these things… one survey told me that my ideal job is a photographer – rightio then – off I go to quit and take photos for a living – FACEBOOK has spoken!
I used to be able to read what a lot of people were thinking, doing or processing… now all I seem to get is celebrity quizzes and game results! I am starting to very much NOT enjoy facebook – it is becoming too much about Time-wasting and not enough about connecting with friends, colleagues and acquaintances!!! There was value to networking in the old ways of facebook – before it became so… well… stupid! I think there used to be an age-bias to these things… Bebo was for 12 year olds… Myspace for teens and Facebook for the grown-ups… well… maybe the beboers and myspacers have grown up and are now facebookers suffer the demise of what was once a pure idea, that became corrupted by it’s own size!
I would be interested in your ideas and opinions about this – is this possibly why Twitter is becoming the next thing – like Facebook, but without all the mess and clutter? I was all anti-twitter until I just thought about this… Hmmmm…
