Face It

I'd like to propose a toast, to Facebook. This goes out to all the people budding into each other's personal lives, to all the stalkers and talkers, to all those that can't help but show off their moments of social greatness for the rest of their world to laugh in uncomfortable awkwardness at pictures that scream: "I CAN HAVE FUN TOO!!!" and let's not forget those who just can't figure out how to use it: the failed self marketers, the bad profile picture, the desperate plea in a wall post, those that still don't know how to show face. Because that's what it's all about isn't it. Nothing validates one's existence like receiving a message on a cell phone that says, "Jackie responded to your picture comment: 'Thanks, I'll keep that in mind next time.'" Think of all the things we would be doing instead of Facebook, instead of advancing our cause of self affirmation. And for those who have it, more power to you, let the rest of us bask in your glory and popularity because truly you are one of God's blessed creature. We could work hard our whole lives, but never will we know the feeling of being poked by 3 different people every day. What bliss that must be?
Of course we NEED it, how else would we keep in touch with our old friends. People that would otherwise slip our minds. People that we can always reminisce with about the good ol' times.
I don't want to live life, I want to facebook life!!!
