Facebook: not getting it

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Lorenzo E. Danielsson @ 02:19

Okay, so I have now been on facebook for a while. I still don’t get the whole point. So many people have told me about how addictive it is. I have more addictions than you have toes, but I’m just not getting addicted to this.

To me, facebook is little but “X sent you a present”, “Y sent you a hug”, “Z kicked your ass”. I just don’t get it. Is that supposed to be interesting? Am I too old for this kind of crap? Too boring? Or does facebook demand some level of intelligence that I lack?

I tried joining a few groups. That did seem interesting at first. I was wrong. No matter how interesting the group name may sound, what is actually discussed tends to be mundane at best. It’s mostly greetings and slogans that get exchanged. *sigh*

So could somebody who understands these things better than I do *please* explain what makes facebook great? Surely there must be something. Otherwise their member count wouldn’t be so high. What is it I am expected to get out of “hanging out on facebook”?
