After a full week of CST testing, there was no escaping the news that Facebook went public today. Unfortunately, I am no longer a member; I’m usually a few years ahead on trends so personally I think it’s the beginning of the end for FB. People, I think, are just burnt out on sharing too much information.
I know I am. What gets me is how FB takes up so much time and mental energy on virtual, inconsequential “friends.” I sort of thought about my past with some fondness; but once I saw the path that many of the people in high school took, it just sort of made me sad to see people’s lives sort of play out into getting old, unfulfilled and full of baggage. The purity is gone, and I’m wasting my time thinking about it. That’s enough, so I quit.
