Friend Requests (shudder)

I know I’ll be accused of being a grumpy old man, but does anyone else get sick of people asking you to join Bebo, mySpace, WAYN, Facebook et all? First of all, all these sites are are a big smokescreen for you stay “in-touch” with friends but trick you into laying your whole life out online so a big multi-national can swoop in, take all the marketing data and start sending you more “targeted offers.” Oh, and an online popularity contest is a little bit sad too. “Oh, I’ve got 13,679 friends.” No you don’t, you’re probably very lonely and instead of going out and seeing people and experiencing new things you’re on (insert social network site here) instead.

Anyway, my point is, I wish I’d thought of these sites. Jealousy is a terrible thing.
