facebook

When I first joined facebook about 3 years ago, it was strictly for college students and I LOVED that about it. It wasn't anything like myspace where anyone can join and look at your profile and things like that. Well, within the past year or so, facebook has become WORSE than myspace. "How is that possible?" you ask. It's simple. It started when facebook opened up to high schoolers. Now, I realize that at high school age, people are figuring out who they are and what they want to do with their lives. At least that's what I thought. But no, they are incredibly disrespectful, dress like pimps and sluts, and act like they own the world. (side note, I really hope and pray that I was nothing like that.)

Moving on... After facebook opened up to high schoolers, it opened up to everyone. It was no longer a college thing. It is an everyone thing. And I can't stand it. It's become like facebook where everyone has to see how many friends they have and if they can't beat their friends at that number. I'll be that first to admit that I have close to 300 friends on myspace, but they are people I have known at some point in my life and I have actually TALKED to them at some point, even if it was just briefly. And I'm pretty sure it's the same on myspace (with the exception of my one true love, Josh Groban).

And now there's all these ridiculous applications you can add. What happened to posting pictures and sending messages and posting on your friends' walls? I constanly have new super pokes, new quizzes to take (I do admit that I enjoy those), new whatever requests. I CAN'T STAND IT!!!!! When I logged on today, I was this close to deleting my account, but I knew that would cause me to lose touch with some people. And the worst part is, when you decide, hey, this application looks fun, I think I'll add it; you have to invite a minimum of 15-20 people before you can even look at it! What if it totally sucks? Is it my obligation to go back and say sorry to all the people I was forced to tell about this retched thing?

What I'm trying to say is... I want the original facebook back. When it first started to change, there were hundreds of groups on it that wanted the old facebook back. Well, I'm here to say that my facebook page will be as close to the original with exception of a few applications that I actually enjoy.

End note: I wrote this in a small rage and in a hurry, so I apologize for anything that doesn't make sense and any grammatical and spelling errors.

I SO TOTALLY AGREE. High schoolers are brats. Facebook is dumb now. Remember when you used to have the click the "this is not porn" box to upload photos? Not the case anymore! It's so retarded. And yeah, I hate that you have to invite friends to applications. I feel bad for everyone that starts with an "A." And superpoke? Superwall? I hate the whole forwarding thing (we're not 13-year-olds with our new email addresses, people!), and for Heaven's sake I don't want a sheep thrown at me!!!
