I think Facebook is gay. And by gay, I don’t mean any harm to homosexual people. If you’re offended by the random use of that term to describe something silly or lame, then you have too much free time, or you aren’t comfortable with your sexuality. But I digress. Facebook is myspace for adults. I actually had to join myspace because there were so many people on there claiming to be me, and telling people weird stuff about me, that I would meet them at a bar, concert, or just flat out abusing my name. Anyway, the only way I could block them was to join. With Facebook, I have discovered the same thing is true, that there are a few people claiming to be me on there. It’s not. I promise. I have had very good friends that have “friended” me on there, thinking that I finally broke down and joined. And one even argued with me that it was me on facebook and that I was just pulling his leg!
Do you know what that is like? A close friend has been duped and thinks they are talking with me online, and giving out personal details of evenings/vacations/parties/etc that we have had. I’m not mad at my friends, though they should know I’m not on Facebook. I’m not even mad at the people who say they are me on facebook/myspace/mars, whatever. It’s just scary that there is that much personal information being passed around about all of us without our knowledge.
After joining myspace and realizing I only got rid of a couple people, I decided to let it slide. Really, who cares? It’s a little flattering anyway. Confusing as to why someone would want to say they were me, but flattering. And gay. I want to keep in touch with my friends on my phone and in person. If I want to send my friends some pictures, I will email them, or tell them to look at my website if they forgot what I look like. Sometimes my friends will tweet me, and I respond with a text, cuz I think if we are gonna have a friend conversation, it should be between us friends. And yes, I get the irony that I’m such a big twitter freak and am talking smack about the other social networking sites. By the way, linked in is another one I don’t want any part of. Too much info out there already about the former number 31, 62, and 66. I’ll keep in touch with people I want to on a more personal basis, thanks! (I’ve actually been thinking lately that I’m gonna quit Twitter too)
So, to recap. Facebook/Myspace=gay. Scot=not a homophobe. I also use the word retard. When Politically Correctness gets in the way of society, then we move closer to socialism. I don’t like everything everyone has to say, but I’d rather let them say it and ignore them than not allow them to express their opinions. But that’s another blog. (i hate that word, yet I use it, sue me!)
