A long time ago, my brother- in- law said that TV was the greatest mechanism ever built to waste man's time (and he is an E.E. so not opposed to TV or a luddite). And I think that was true then..... but now there is texting and F.B.. Good to know the the blame is not on TV anymore.

like others mostly for family and freinds i dont see much, other than that i dont typically post about every bowel movement or worthless thought up there in my head.

At work we just had a seminar about social media.....like they want us to use facebook...great more people in corporate america wasting the day away.

Can't really dispute that, I guess (or won't, at any rate...)

Taken literally, your statement that FB is like a forum is basically correct... With the caveat being that the range of topics is (thankfully) much more limited (usually  ;)) by a general consensus.

I don't think anyone would dispute the following statement : "There is a GREAT deal of "narcissism, self-pity and voyeurism" on FB."  (Although this too, may just be my opinion.)

I guess I had always assumed (or hoped) that the signal-to-noise ratio was a bit more favourable in 'here' though... 

That may be my mistake - but I've been wrong before.

Now with that said, I am actually working on a blog called 'Kirby's Korner' for my web page. I guess that could be either pathetic or humorous and it is up to each one of us to decide which I figure.

Does it have to be one or the other?   ;D
