The Fate of Facebook
I came late in the game to Facebook, but I have happily enjoyed reconnecting with friends around the globe, cyber-stalking crushes of friends, getting daily mundane updates from everyone, and other forms of entertainment. In short, it’s been a fun six months.
And yet, with all its benefits, I have maintained slight skepticism of the site, especially when my mom – who called to figure out how to turn off her iPod and uses the internet primarily to forward spam emails* about lost children, princes in Uganda needing money and making you money, and religious propaganda – joined a few months ago. But with her participation limited to only a few comments on her children’s walls, I thought little of it.
When I got a friend request from Jerry – the iconic 80-year-old stranded-in-the-closet man in my church.
So just as MySpace became the Digital Detroit, I suspect Facebook is slowly but surely turning into the Del Boca Vista of the internet.
*Okay, so not these emails specifically, but if she could just figure out snopes.com.
