Okay, so I just figured I'd jump on The Facebook to see if anything has changed in the site and the way I feel about those kind of sites, and I feel sick to my stomach now.
The concept is cool, but at the same time I think it sucks. It takes all the fun and trivia out of making friends in the physical world, rather than the digital world. I mean, don't get me wrong, I enjoy making new friends online, but when you're at the mercy of "x-degrees of separation", it's just not the same.
I imagine part of this disgust I have for the sites stems from a project gone sour, but that's just a small part. The rest of it is just... ARGH! I hate those sites!
For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, let me present you with a little flowchart:
So yeah. I despise those sites. I don't want someone telling me who should be my friend. That's my choice.
