When Facebook first started, way back when, I was a fan. I liked Facebook. I spent a lot of time on Facebook. We had specific "Facebook pictures" that we took when we were out. Over the last few years, it seems that Facebook has become everything. Totally commercialized and not really fun to me anymore, so I've been avoiding it. At first it went from every day to every other day, then every week, then every couple of weeks, now I can go months without thinking about Facebook. And I'm okay with that... except for the fact that apparently, I'm not good enough friends with you anymore if I don't keep up with you on Facebook. I had to find out a friend of mine was engaged WAY after the fact because she didn't tell me herself. her excuse once I asked was... I put it on Facebook. okay. So i guess I'm not important enough in your life to warrant a freakin text message to hear that you're engaged? nice. And the only place to get updates on my niece and nephews is on Facebook, which is lame. My family and I aren't close enough for a phone call or even an email but sure Facebook is okay. dumb. And my biggest reason for not liking Facebook is totally in my head. Maybe it has to do with my self esteem or something... I'm not sure. But every time I look at Facebook, I get totally jealous and wish for a different life for myself. I know everyone puts up the best things about their lives on Facebook...but still it gets to me. I look at pictures of people and they seem to have it all down, things that I still haven't figured out for myself... kids, jobs, vacations, pets, fun stuff. It just makes me feel like I'm not enough... So I don't like Facebook.
PS I just typed Facebook so many times that it totally looks like it is spelled wrong... does that ever happen to you?
