“I’d Pay to Make That Not Happen.” 

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.
