Facebook

Ok, here's the thing.
Facebook is a tool. A tool used to spy on people. Facebook is supposed to be used to find out who got fat, pregnant, married, divorced, hired, fired, moved, and who was successful or a failure in life.
More importantly, it is for spying on your high school sweetheart to see if his wife is as ugly as you hope, your college nemesis who made freshman drama a nightmare and that guy with whom you should have gone to the prom. (Sigh.)
Sure, it's a networking tool, but save for a few friends that I like to encourage and love up by way of commenting on some photos (hi, Julianne!), Facebook, by and large, is for SPYING. Facebook is the layman's spyware.
My point?
Bumper stickers, fun walls, sports teams, etc., just serve to clutter pages and get in my way when I am trying to see the new photos you added from your vacation to Duluth. I'm DYING to see you swimming in those frigid waters, but I can't find your albums due to all the garbled nonsense filling up your profile page.
Let's clean up those pages, people, and use Facebook for it's God-given purpose. Spying, snooping, and exploring.
I'm just saying.

Facebook is WAY more fun than driving by the neighbor's house at night when their blinds are up and their lights are on.

Oh and by the way, I love it when you start a blog post with "Ok, here's the thing".

I thought myspace was bad, that's why I got facebook instead now they are just as bad! It takes 5 minutes just to load one page!

Agreed 100%! I am going to start a group or write a new app to spread the news.

Yeah, I hate all those aps! The new version is better though-it has separate tabs for wall, aps, etc. Then you don't have to look at it all!
