I am one of these guys that doesn’t spend a lot on time on Facebook, I have too many other things on my plate.
Besides I really don’t think the world wants to know that I had oatmeal with blueberries for breakfast or that I take Metamucil. That I don’t feel sluggish and there’s a new spring to my step and how Viagra changed my life……………….whoops! too much information..
However once every two or three days I will receive mail notification that a family member or friend has “tagged” me, (not even sure if that is the right term) in a photo. I usually look at it and think; “God the least they could have done is used photoshop to touch up my hair”. Now the sad truth is out there in cyberspace for all the world to see.
More recently and from time to time I receive requests that people want to be my “friend” Since I am verbally challenged I look for an online dictionary to find out the meaning of “friend” This is what I found – “a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations”.
Hummm exclusive of sexual, I guess that’s why there is a forest cyber bars out there called “online dating services” Perhaps Facebook should change “friend” to “family, friends and cyber acquaintances”?
So here I sit with my finger poised over the CONFIRM or DELETE REQUEST button, yes, no, yes, no……ah! what the hell a person can never have too many friends…..right?
