This is just amazing, I have a facebook, I actually created the account in the first place to keep an eye on my kids. Then they realized they can control who sees what..."teens know everything didn't you know?"
You get on there and scroll through the endless status updates of people doing nothing and then letting you know they are doing nothing. I could of guessed that they were getting ready for work, eating supper and really not very happy about anything without reading about it. I am just that preceptive without the aid of facebook; but yet I go there, put in my status of nothing and sometimes just make it up so I sound like I even care about what I am doing and that is why I am letting others know about it.
My kids are sending me invites to a farm online where they take care of animals and crops, they can't clean the litter box for the "real cat" that they so wanted to have or they absolutely would have died with out it. So now the cat sits there and watches them tend to the online farm and all the animals, wanting to scratch their eyes out because it has a stinky litter box it can't even stand.
You can also do quizzes on facebook to find out almost anything you ever wanted to know about yourself, then share the results with all your friends. I really don't want to know that my friend from the second grade, was a bird in their past life, nor that my friend is the the best lover and likes pillows.
A big deal is being made about a study by US market research firm Pear Analytics, which claims that 40 per cent of the messages sent via Twitter are “pointless babble”.
I don't know about you, but I have a hard time trying to come up with something interesting to say at least once a day...I am pretty sure I couldn't come up with anything worth tweeting about more than that. I have tried very hard to figure this twitter thing out, I have "really" tried..I log in, forget what I was going to tweet, log out and then maybe in an hour try again. We have over 1900 followers, have no clue why they follow us, we have nothing interesting to say. Twitter humors the instictiveness of competition in people, who has the most followers, who can tweet the best crap...I mean tweet. We all want to be on top of the twitter tower, I think it would be more productive to play king of the castle.
