TIME magazine has picked up on the Facebook backlash. Strange. This is news?

tracerhand OTM, people petitioning to facebook about this shit need to go read a book or something.

Now you can join Facebook! You tried to register last April, before we allowed everyone to sign up.

So now the concept of waitlisting students has spread to their social networking sites. Beautiful.

I couldn't find an old friend of mine last week searching his name on myspace when it hit me, "______ has always been a bit too conceited and way too social to not have any social e-profile networking thingamajigger...but he wouldn't be on myspace anyway...too popular...doesn't show elite status or isn't some club...if only there was some other sites just like myspace but seemed to be more about distancing yourself from the unwashed masFACEBOOK DOT COM!"

I checked out the site and sure enough I found him. Just goes to show how far mean generalizations about people will get you in life.

one month passes...
okay, this is because i got a group email from the guy who runs the web company that oversees a site i sometimes write for, saying that that website now has a facebook profile and that we should add it, oh, and hey, add him while we're at it, cheers, etc!

so, okay, it's kinda creepy for people not in college/over 30 to be on facebook, right? myspace, sure, 'cause of like, the music/bands, whatever, i don't know, it's unwashed hilarity (what i'm saying is i'm still on myspace, yeah. and the site in question isn't even), but, uh, facebook? i thought it was really just for college kids who want to fuck each other? am i so wrong for doing a spit-take and laughing when i received the above email from mr. internet entrepreneur?

rrrobyn, Thursday, 1 March 2007 21:10 (twelve years ago) link

It isn't just about college kids who want to fuck each other. It's about anybody who wants to fuck college kids.

Gukbe, Thursday, 1 March 2007 21:13 (twelve years ago) link

I just had to create a Facebook profile for work! Their reasoning: "You're one of the more technology-savvy librarians. We should start a staff group! You must join!" Don't they know it's weird? They don't! Sad!

I was tempted to say, in the section where you say how you know each other, that I had slept with every one of my coworkers on Facebook.

I didn't.

You can be my friend, if you like. last name: dahl

molly mummenschanz, Thursday, 1 March 2007 21:15 (twelve years ago) link

that kind of temptation wld be too much for. i am having a hard enough time not replying-to-all with something 'comedic' about this email.

i promise not to join facebook

rrrobyn, Thursday, 1 March 2007 21:21 (twelve years ago) link

The Lex just befriended me on Facebook.

jaymc, Thursday, 1 March 2007 21:38 (twelve years ago) link

facebook's not just for college kids--professors and recent alumni have profiles, too; but i do think it's weird to be in your mid-30s and get on facebook and none of your friends have it. i cant speak for all college students, but i (and almost everyone i know) don't use it as a myspace-type meet-people-over-facebook thing; really, it's a friend-people-i-already-know-and-keep-in-touch-with-people-i-don't-see thing. so i reject randos who friend me (altho im happy to accept any ILXors who want to be my friend unless youre weird; my real name is m4x r3@d and i go to 0cc1d3nt4l c0ll3g3)

i dont like the idea of facebook getting all democratized and ugly like myspace (and having a ton of "entities" like companies/bands have their own profiles instead of just "groups").

keep it clean and efficient and fascist--and well-designed--and there wont be a problem.

max, Thursday, 1 March 2007 23:24 (twelve years ago) link

everyone, befriend me! :-D

p.s. I'm never touching myspace, it's DIRTY

Drooone, Monday, 30 April 2007 23:12 (twelve years ago) link

This is great! Folks like me who are comfortable with others knowing a little about my life won't mind the changes, and the more secretive types will be forced to grow up and stop minding what everyone thinks!

Trayce, Tuesday, 1 May 2007 00:02 (twelve years ago) link

Should I use Facebook? I have my email address for grad school now. I still don't really know what it is.

admrl, Tuesday, 1 May 2007 00:07 (twelve years ago) link

Use Facebook, and join the IRM appreciation group.

Curt1s Stephens, Tuesday, 1 May 2007 00:11 (twelve years ago) link

why would I do that if I don't know what IRM is? It's difficult to appreciate the unknown.

admrl, Tuesday, 1 May 2007 00:16 (twelve years ago) link
