I was on Facebook once for about a minute. I know everyone loves it but I hated it. Someone told me it is a way to stay connected to the outer world. What’s an outer world? The twilight zone? All I saw were peoples photos and comments about seeing a new hot movie, shopping at a new mall or just returning from a trip to the Bahama’s. Hardly outer worlds. I saw strange greetings to peoples loved ones on birthdays and anniversaries which in my humble opinion is private stuff. I tired of pictures of kids winning soccer matches, people running marathons and new babies. Do you really care about all this with more than a few people? And if you did care why not meet for coffee or talk on the phone?
I said all this to someone younger than me.
“Nooooo!” she said, “you are missing the point!”
“Really?” I replied, “which point…..outer worlds?”
“It’s a really good way of keeping in touch with….” her voice trailed off.
“People you don’t want to stay in touch with?” I asked.
I rest my case.
