    When I saw this I thought two things.


    1) F**K my google stock will be hurt.

    2) With the awesome power of the internet, the seemingly infinite library and repository of all knowledge, people instead want to know that people they can't be bothered to even talk to are "happy that they have spaghetti tonight". FFS can we have some elitist genocide please?

    I would say its more 'anti' social networking, because you spend all night on there you never leave the house and socialise.

    Maybe I am the odd one out but I avoid all social networking sites and hate all reality TV. I just don't fit in with the masses anymore, but in this case I am proud of that fact.

    I agree with you on this

    Facebook was good when it wasn't popular. Once it got popular it started to go downhill. THEN the stupid applications and quizzes started to appear and now it's getting too much of a chore to even log in, delete the crap people post to your wall and delete all the mundane messages that are starting to appear.
