Is Facebook a cult?
Just this week, I've had four people ask me why I wasn't on Facebook.
"You didn't know about the party? If you'd been on Facebook you would have known about it."
"You're not on Facebook? Huh? How will I be able to communicate with you?"
"Get on Facebook! I'll be your first friend!"
"Don't you have a Facebook? What's wrong with you?"
"You should get on Facebook! Everyone's doing it!"
Holy crap everyone just shut the hell up please. Y'all are starting to sound like a bunch of moonies recruiting for some online doomsday cult. It's like a mental zombie virus that incubates inside the brain and then seeks by all means to propagate by infecting others. I want none of that, no thank you. It's nothing but a fad, and like near-defunct myspace and friendster that preceded it, it's going to fall into oblivion.
I can't go to a website nowadays without being asked to use my 'facebook id' to log in. It's like a worm spreading from computer to computer and infecting websites all around the world. There is no reason why people should look at me as if I had two heads just because I don't have a membership at some BS website that I have no use for.
