So Long, Facebook

OK, I gave FB a shot. After all my time of saying "me and social networking don't get along", I tried anyway. Found someone that I could not track down any other way, so it seemed like it was worth it. Gave it a good go, too. Filled it all out, added a ton of things I "liked", added a couple of apps, did it all apart from games.

Screw it, I'm done.

Seriously, I just don't like the shallow inanity of it all. It's Twitter with an interface. Short little blurbs about nothing at all with no depth. I'd rather get one good LJ post a month from someone than the daily "I'm at this place" notes that are the norm. Do people really believe others want to hear the little one-liners that spring into your head all day, and do other people actually care that much? It just seems to be another symptom of the culture we've allowed to coalesce (maybe coagulate is a better word) that thrives of uselessness, sloth, and triviality...and by showcasing it, fosters it to grow even worse.

If it makes you happy, more power to you, I just do not see the attraction. Of course, I don't see why most TV is popular, either, so who can say? I'm just not the target demographic. So, no more for me. At best, I'll cross-post some LJ entries there, and that's only due to request form some people that have given up LJ for FB.
