call me elitist, but...

Okay, I decided again that I don't like facebook. I didn't like it at first because I'm sick of social networking sites. Then I got dragged into it, and it was cool for a while because I got invited to stuff. Now I'm annoyed by it, because random people who I sorta know are bugging me on there, and they're not that interesting. The only thing I have in common with them is that we went to school together, or work together, or something... and I hate to say it, but that's not enough. Just because I recognize your name, that doesn't mean you're interesting to me.

My livejournal friends are interesting. the spacefemmites are interesting. They've all got something to say. Just some random guy I work with who found his way online and uploaded a picture? That would be "taking up space".

So, that's my bonus reason to hate social networking sites: they make boring people believe that the internet is good a place for them to be, like they can add something to it, without actually having a voice or personality. This would be false.
