I have a general beef with Facebook mostly because it is an overall waste of time and really has no significant purpose in anything (except getting Betty White to host SNL, which was great). It’s biggest plug is that it helps people stay connected, which is a problem. Every minor acquaintance, friend of a friend, classmate from grade school, and that cutie-patootie that is in your 3rd period class is of no real importance in any aspect of one’s life. These people don’t matter, in a general bigger picture way maybe, but not in everyday occurrences. Facebook has now created a generation that intertwines people to each other for an unnecessary purpose. Pseudo-Facebook friends aren’t real people. They are just strangers that have a window to your life for no reason. Liking a person’s status from your third grade class once every 3 years doesn’t mean anything, especially that you are still friends in any traditional definition of the word. Keeping this false sense of friendship is dumb, and that is basically my whole argument against Facebook and keeping a ridiculously large amount of friends that you would never invite home to meet mom and dad.
