“I’d Pay to Make That Not Happen.” 

Friday, May 28th, 2010

Eileen Jones humorously echoes many of my own thoughts about Facebook.

Maybe somebody could explain Facebook to me. I’m on it and I still don’t get it. I hate it without understanding it, like a dog barking at a vacuum cleaner.

I’ve been on Facebook for over six years, since it first launched outside of Harvard. After all that time, I still don’t know what the point is. Every few months I sign in to my account, reject a bunch of fallacious friend requests, increase my privacy controls, and contemplate deleting the whole damned thing.
