I do appreciate the ability Facebook has given me to stay in contact with people I have met in various stages of my life and it can provide entertainment for me when I am bored. However, I find it pretty sad that people won't even pay attention in class because they have to rummage through pages and pages of useless Facebook nonsense. It consumes people and it is downright creepy how much we can learn about people we have never even talked to by looking at their Facebook page. My profile is set to a very private setting, but hacking is also a possibility. One other thing that is somewhat upsetting to me is how Facebook has transformed the world of photos. My house is full of photo collages and framed pictures, and my mom will definitely pull out the old photo albums at family
parties. Todays generation, though, is missing out on that opportunity to really hold and admire that glossy kodak moment. I just don't understand how we are going to show our children all our best memories...are we going to dust off our old Facebook and pull it up for our grandchildren? Sure every generation is subject to technological change and advancement, but this is one of which I still don't understand the long-term effects.
Oh, and one time I put up a photo album and didn't have time to tag all my friends....so this happened.....
Ya, some people are too obsessed with Facebook.
