Facebook Crap

Tuesday, August 28, 2007

I finally have to admit it: I have not been able to figure out Facebook. No, not their business model. But what to do with it. I am on it and so are a decent amount of friends. But I hardly ever go beyond the home page. I see all my friends adding all sorts of applications, running quizzes, giving each other gifts, reading fortune cookies and whatnot. They seem to be having a good time.

But somehow I fail to enjoy it. None of the apps are really interesting. Or useful. To be frank, some of them are downright childish. Fortune cookies, comparing likes and dislikes. Who has the time for these things. And how do people find the apps in the first place. I hope they are not googling for it. That would be a nice irony: the supposedly Google killer is being helped by Google.

I am too old for this. Orkut (and its new look) is the one for me. At least I do some eye candy surfing there. :)
