Are you part of it?
Almost everyone starting from the 6th grade to fully aged adults have a facebook account these days. Our teachers have it, our friends have it, people who we barely talk to on our friends list have it, and some of our parents have it. Almost everyone has it.
It's the facebook craze.
Who knew a website that allows you to upload photos, send messages to your friends, join groups and among other things could be so time-consuming? When you think about it, WHAT IS SO INTERESTING ABOUT IT o.o? You basically sit there and read about people's ongoing life and about their random rantings. JUst like a talker :)
The facebook craze is so big these days, it's very common for the average person to check his/her account every few hours. But you know you have to...there's a hidden mystical power behind facebook which makes you want to check all the time. Hmmm.
You know you love the:
- Thrill when you see that red notification icon.
- That smile you get when you see a "1" or "2" etc...next to the word inbox.
- Or that tingly feeling when you know someone commented on your picture...
Although you hate the fact that your inbox get's flooded ALL THE TIME! And that the new facebook layout that never stops changing has no feug shui and actually makes it less addicting... well atleast in my opinion.
Okay, maybe we're not that obsess, but we're getting there.
Now, sitting here in front of my laptop, I wonder. I wonder if facebook is ever going to get old? Will people think that facebook is "uncool" all of the sudden? Will everyone switch to Twitter or another sort of networking site? You never know, all the changes to facebook might push people to actually leave the site in frustration.
I think that most people could answer yes to these questions:
Do you feel happy whe nyou get notifications? Do you check facebook regularly? Do you send useless messages to your friends because you can? Have you used facebook to spam your friend's wall? Do you add people you don't talk to?
If you answered yes, then you're part of the facebook craze. And you know what? THAT'S OKAY :)
So stand tall, chin up, and admit: I'm part of the facebook craze.
The facebook craze. Are YOU part of it?
